We are in extraordinary times. Yesterday history was made as the Democratic Convention officially nominated Barak Obama for President of the United States of America. Tonight History will be made again when he accepts the nomination. It doesn’t matter what our individual political views are and no matter what the outcome is, we still must realize that we are in Extraordinary Times.
I want to challenge everyone to go out and exercise your right to vote in the upcoming election. If you are not registered, get registered. Otherwise, when things don’t go the way you want or when policies are developed that you don’t agree with, you have no right to complain. Vote! Vote! Vote!
I have been working with a group of young people during this whole political process helping them to understand the importance of the times we are in and the process of the whole election stuff (yeah, I know–like I know the process!). Any way, as a final project, a few weeks ago we had to write an Inauguration Speech as if we were elected President. I’ll share mine with you.
Proverbs 14:34 states, “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”
Stay encouraged. Stay Prayerful and Stay in God’s presence!!!
