It's election day and I'm quite convinced that today has been scarier than Halloween this year. I'm not crazy about either candidate and yet I find myself so passionately taking a side and so personally offended at the ignorance (on both sides) and lack of care about such an important election. Living in a swing state has just heightened the tension for the past few weeks. I have genuinely feared the outcome of this election. I have feared for the safety of this country, the security of jobs for my family (my parents work and own small businesses and my brother and sister work in healthcare), my future...

And I was reminded this morning of the verse in 2 Timothy 1:7 - "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of sound mind."

I take great comfort in knowing that He will take care of us regardless of who wins tonight and that even though my immediate future here in the US may seem a little cloudy, that my eternity in heaven is still secure.
