So, back to the topic at hand. It shouldn't be too hard for you to figure out that "my guy" lost. That would account for the sinking feeling in my stomach, but then there is that other conflicting feeling of excitement and happiness that an AA has finally been elected as the president. That's a BIG deal. It's a big deal for our country and it's a big deal for my family personally. If you don't think it's a BIG deal then I suggest some reading of the history of African Americans in our country. IMO, everyone should realize that this election was a BIG deal.
The calming influence of my emotional roller coaster is, as always, God's Word, which assures me that God raises up leaders here on earth and he puts others down. He is still King of kings and Lord of Lords, He is still Sovereign over all the earth. I'll hang my hat on those truths!
First of all, than, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, 1 Timothy 2:1-6
