    A good word and reminder Kevin. I perused some of the Progressive Christian blogs and you would think that the sky is falling and God is no longer in control.

    Of course…

    The EXACT same thing could have been said if Hillary had won in regards to conservative Christians. And the same thing DID happen when Obama and Bill Clinton won.

    Why do we so often have to be reminded of the obvious..that God is in control (rhetorical question).

    So, a silly question that hangs in my head

    Saeed Abedini, stopped clock or man with a prophecy?

    I don’t think that I’m ready for “God is in control yet”. It’s not the sovereignty of God that I am wrestling with today as much as the degree to which people that I love and respect have disappointed me. I have had that as an undercurrent during much of this election, but now that it is written in stone as a result I’m honestly having a hard time dealing with it.

    Dallas,
    “as the degree to which people that I love and respect have disappointed me. ”

    Have you ever considered the possibility that you were a disappointment to them? 😉

    This runs both ways – the Cubs beat the Dodgers in the playoffs… but I have moved on.

    People are nuts. I put a post on FB this morning stating that if any of my liberals friends needed help moving to Canada, I was free for the next 3 weekends.

    A nice short funny FB comment meant to ease the tension. My nephew comes on and says that if Trump knew I was born Jewish that he would make me wear a Yellow Star, but that it was O because we would both be in the same internment camp.

    Now has Trump ever given any indication that this is his plan.? So who are the trouble makers here?

    KevinH, i LOVE the passage from Isaiah that you chose today… thank you for giving us God’s wisdom… the Divine Viewpoint of what is transpiring down thru time

  7. Jean says:

    Thank you Kevin.

    Personally, I bumped into my son this morning as we were both getting ready for work and said: “I’m glad I can stop constantly watching the news for the latest election news.”

    If I don’t tune it out, I could become very fearful, because we are all in for something very different from what we’re accustomed to in Washington. I could prejudge, but that would just perpetuate arguments. Thus, I will acknowledge that the people have spoken. God has caused or permitted.

    Now I will try to go back to my vocations and remember the First Commandment.

    Although I did not support the same candidate as everyone here, I share the same Lord, Jesus Christ, with you. Therefore, I consider everyone brothers and sisters in Christ.

    Lord have mercy; Christ have mercy; Lord have mercy.

    #3 – long years ago when i left college and entered the workforce my corporate executive uncle gave me some sage advice: “Em, the first thing you’ve got to learn is, people are no d*mned good.” he was a man loved and respected by most all who knew him 🙂

    sometimes i wish we could all meet the Lord the way the Apostle Paul did – there aren’t many of us who are not riding a high horse of self righteousness…
    the ones that have come to terms with themselves and God seem to live humbly in the shadows known by just a few privileged souls – my grandfather was one of them

    just sayin

    MLD, you are probably right. I’m just coming to terms. Things will be alright, I’m just not there yet.

    Btw since you brought up sports, Twitter was an odd way to experience the polling info coming in last night. For one my twitter feed is almost the polar opposite of my Facebook feed, and two because among all of the political sky is falling posts, I was getting updates and highlights from the Pens game and a ton of congratulations tweets for Starling Marte’s second consecutive Gold Glove. A few bright spots at least.

    I believe that for all her faults, Columbia is still the gem of the ocean.
    And she will endure.
