It is a simple statement. But, at the same time, it isnâ€™t.
The stakes are incredibly high, as they are in every election. It is both a great privilege and responsibility. For me, it is one that has always been rooted in conscience and conviction.
I voted for imperfect (every single one of them!) people and policies, with the understanding that each one will shape the future of our towns, cities, states, and nation.
But, more than that, these people and policies will, without a doubt, have a great impact on my children and their future. This is why I talk to them about the issues at stake, why I bring them with me, and why I teach them about the process. Because I want them to understand the importance of being an informed and involved citizen.
Do you see those 4 sweet faces in the picture with me?
I didnâ€™t vote for a man, or a party.
I voted for them.
But, I take comfort in knowing that, â€œ…there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.â€ (Rom. 13:1) Because, no matter who wins, who loses, or what color the electoral map turns at the end of the day, my God will still be on His throne.
