My Somewhat Quick and Very Political Post

candidates
As I sit here and worry about the election, it strikes me. We all worry that our candidate won’t get in office. Probably more accurately in this election, we worry that the other candidate will. We want to do what we can to keep that other person out of office. Or do we?

The Real Truth
As much as we worry, as much as we want to do something to make things swing in our favor, as much as we want to see what we see as a brighter future, we have to realize something very important.

We can vote. We can hold signs. We can work for whichever party. We can post on Facebook. But at some point, it’s simply out of our control. And that’s what has us so upset.

We Don’t Have to Be In Charge
We want to be in control. We want things to go our way. We want to see things favor the things we favor because that’s the way it should be. For many of us, that’s the way we see God wants it.

And if we really want to help people, bless people, and make the world better, we absolutely should do the right things to do our part to make that happen. If we want to stand up for the oppressed and marginalized, we need to do what we can to help. We need to vote. We need to do our civic duty. These are things we are absolutely responsible for.

But we don’t have to be in charge. We don’t have to have control. It’s not our job. After all, if this is about God’s will, isn’t He in charge?

It’s not our job to keep anyone out of office. It’s our job to love others. That is our most important job. Let’s vote our conscience, then let it go, and do our job.
