Just a simple but hopefully encouraging post today. Three things:
1) If you want to be reminded that God is at work all over the world, watch this short clip. In it, True Woman ’12 emcee Bob Lepine introduces a stirring video that starts 1:18 minutes in. That’s where it gets really exciting.
2) Oh, and if you’re feeling heavy today, why not re-read Bob Lepine’s post from last week? A Helpful, Hopeful Election Perspective is just as helpful and hopeful post-election as it was pre-election.
3) Mostly, I’d love to hear if there’s a particular verse or truth you’re meditating on after the election. Me, I’m encouraged by the reality of Psalm 103:19:
The LORD has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.
Oh, and Isaiah 9:6:
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
And then a friend reminded me of Nehemiah 4:14:
Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes.
Fight? Yep, on our knees.
In the coming days, may we enter the King’s throne room with even greater fervency, persistence, and faith as we intercede on behalf of our families, our churches, our nations, and the world.
So how about it? Would you share a verse below that you’re calling to mind? Let’s give our sisters a good dose of hope today straight from God’s Word.
