Here's the shrug so far:
In other news, DH is a little bit upset about the result of the New Hampshire primary. I'm not at all concerned, for two reasons.
1. The Bible says in Matthew 6:25-26: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?"
If we're commanded not to worry, I'm going to try really hard not to worry.
2. Romans 13:1 says: "Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God."
God already knows who will be elected President. And He's got it all under HIS control. That doesn't mean that God doesn't allow us free choice, but it does mean that He chooses to allow what happens. So, of course, I'm going to vote, and I'm going to voice my opinion, and I'm going to be as active as I can be as a citizen to choose my next President. But, I'm not going to worry about it. The fate of the free world doesn't rest in my hands; it rests in God's.
