We have a new President

History has been made today, as Barak Obama is now president of the United States (and is the first African-American* to fill that office!). As such, regardless of who you voted for back in November, the office of President deserves the respect and support of the American people.

For those who differ in convictions to our newly inaugurated president, find comfort in knowing that God is just and that He is sovereign above all earthly powers. In that, we can find peace.

*In the vein of history making, maybe, just maybe, America will inaugurate it's first female president in 2013!

Today (and many days!), I find encouragement in this song by Indelible Grace -

Jesus, with Thy Church abide,
Be her Savior, Lord, and Guide,
While on earth her faith is tried:
We beseech Thee, hear us.

Keep her life and doctrine pure,
Help her, patient, to endure,
Trusting in Thy promise sure:
We beseech Thee, hear us.

May she one in doctrine be,
One in truth and charity,
Winning all to faith in Thee:
We beseech Thee, hear us.

May she guide the poor and blind,
Seek the lost until she find,
And the broken hearted bind:
We beseech Thee, hear us.

Oft in sorrow, oft in woe, onward Christians, onward go!

Oft in sorrow, oft in woe, onward Christians, onward go!

Oft in sorrow, oft in woe, onward Christians, onward go!

~ (Andrew Osenga) Indelible Grace
