4 years from now....

As the election has ended, we begin to settle in for another 4 years under President Obama.  I don't know much about politics, economics, and things that I know that I should be way more informed about.  I know I don't agree with most of the issues that Obama supports.  But I do know that as a Christian I am called to respect the authority that has been placed over me.  What point is there in worrying about the future when we don't even know what is going to happen tomorrow!  God is completly sovereign.  This election did not take him by surprise!  He's got this.  Do I think that America is going to prosper?  No, I do not.  How can God bless a nation that has turned their back on Him?  We need to stop complaining about our government and start to Pray for them.  Only God can change their hearts.
