Election Day

Today is the day that millions of people will cast their vote for the individual that they want to lead our country.  Today is the day that people of all ages, of all walks of life, with varying beliefs and perspectives will come together for one purpose – to elect the one who will lead our country for the next four years.  Today is the day that people will arise a few minutes earlier to go stand in long lines, to involve themselves in something that will only require a few minutes out of their day.  Yet, this one act will have a lasting impact on our future.

Today is Election Day!

Today every registered voter has a great privilege and opportunity to make a difference.  We have the privilege of having a say in who our elected officials are.  We have an opportunity before us to join with millions of others in making a difference.  Though I am only one among millions, my  vote is important.  It provides me with a voice.  So, I along with countless others go to the polls to speak, to have our say.

Today is Election Day!

As the hours go by the excitement will continue to build.  The anticipation will grow with every passing moment.  The polls will close and nervous energy will fill the air.  Media outlets will give their reports, exit polls will be given and discussed over and over again.  Early figures creating greater excitement for some, while concern for others.  At the end of this day some will celebrate and others will be saddened.  Some will go to bed before the final votes are counted, wondering how it will all end up.  Who will our President be?  Will Congress be evenly divided?

Today is Election Day!

I have been going to the polls for many years.  There have been times that my candidates won and times when they have not.  One interesting thing – no matter who won those elections a new day  always followed.  I know that we are not guaranteed tomorrow, but if God chooses to bless us with tomorrow I know that I will do as God has instructed in His Word.  Pray.   I will arise tomorrow praying for those who lead me and the millions of others who live in this blessed country.  Whether my candidate wins or loses I will pray and I would encourage all of my brothers and sisters in Christ to do the same.

Today is Election Day.  Tomorrow is a new day.
