Going on with Gratitude - 30 Days of Thankfulness



Thank God the election is over, and we can get on with daily living.

Nope, I’m not gonna turn this post into a political diatribe, although I have pretty strong personal feelings about the outcome of yesterday’s voting. But I’m not planning to post any cheers or complaints about winners or losers.

I won’t post a cell phone photo of my ballot. I won’t even print how I voted. Let’s just say I’m going on with gratitude.

I know Who holds the future. And that did not depend upon blue or red states on a map.

Let’s pray and move on.

I am grateful that the sun came up this morning. I woke up breathing. My family is reasonably on schedule today.


I’m thankful for God’s grace and goodness.

God still reigns. And He is good. To Him be all the glory, whether or not we agree with the popular vote, the Electoral College, or even those who count the votes.

I will proclaim the name of the Lord;
  He is the Rock; His deeds are perfect.
    Everything He does is just and fair.
He is a faithful God who does no wrong;
    how just and upright He is!
(Deuteronomy 32:3-4, NLT)


 
God’s got this.

Now, can we work on being compatriots again?

For what are you thankful?
