The Mid-term Elections
Over the year and particularly the last few months, I have experienced stress and anxiety leading to the upcoming Mid-term elections.
As Americans residing out of the United States, Lyle and I were thrilled to receive our ballots and have the opportunity to vote.
I am surprised how people seem so interested here in Canada about these midterms. And like the US each person has their favorite candidate and a verity of views on them. No matter where I
travel, folks feel the need to debate about our U.S. politics.
I read an editorial a few months ago about an “election stress disorder.” It made me laugh, but later I thought I had many of the symptoms as well. LOL. I had become anxious, constantly looked at surveys, Twitter, and the news every morning and evening. Even Canada will be having elections in the fall, and there is a concern there also.
I was telling my friend in South Carolina, I thought I had the “election stress disorder” and she giggled and pointed out I am like this every two or four years. What are friends for, to give us perspective when our focus becomes small?
As I was reading my Bible, I was telling God how disturbed I am about this entire process.
Luke 18:27 it says; “What is impossible from a human perspective, is possible with God,”
What a comfort to know God is a big picture, God. He is never surprised, caught off guard, or doesn‘t have a plan. He knows the plans he has for each of us, plans for our good that are greater than we could ever imagine. God is trustworthy and true. And all is well when we are in his care.
Oswald Chambers said it well, “Faith never knows where it is being led, but it loves and knows the one who is leading.”
My confidence and happiness is knowing God is in Control©
Thank you, dear friends, for spending your time with me.
I love you all and am praying.
