A day to breathe

"This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."
Psalm 118:24

Yesterday I wrote with much intensity concerning the upcoming election and vote we all face. Obviously, I consider this an important issue as a person, a Californian, and as a Christian. But there is yet a more important issue in our lives.

Each day has many stresses in it all tugging and pulling at the imaginary time capsule that is our life. Only so many grains will fit and yet more and more try or desire to fit into our lives. Knowing that it is important to be in the world God placed us and yet not of this world, we must keep everything in perspective.

As I mentioned, I plan to write about why various parts of this vote are important to our families. However, today I think we need a collective breath of fresh air. Everyone is working so hard to show their way or person is the right one. The reality is whoever serves us in our government will not be perfect, will not fully satisfy all the longings we have to see things done correctly. We want it to happen, but it won't. Because no matter what they do, these candidates and law writers will not be God. They will not know for certain the absolute right path to take. They will slip, they will fall.

We must, in the midst of what I believe is and important election, keep perspective. Only God is God. Only He really knows the right course for our country, our state and our families. This is His day, as is each one created by Him.

Let us pause.....

and REJOICE in it....

imperfect though we may be, perfection is there for us to see in Christ Jesus, to learn from and enjoy.

Have a blessed day!
