Friday we witnessed the peaceful transfer of power, from the 44th President of the United States to the 45th President of the United States. Two men, who appear to be polar opposites, completed the process with civility and respect. They may not like each other as a person, but they still conducted themselves honorably.
I have friends that are the polar opposites in their views of these current events. I’m sad to say that they don’t treat each other respectfully or honorably with regards to these changes. One doesn’t understand why I’m not over-the-moon excited. The other doesn’t understand why I’m not fighting mad and taking it to the streets.
What I tell them is that I have place my trust in God – not any man or any woman. He has never let me down. I trust Him with the concerns of the country. And He tells me to pray for those in authority (1Timothy 2). So I put my faith in God and I pray to Him for our leaders. I don’t need to take to the streets, because I take it to the Lord in prayer. And for being excited – well, I’m always excited to see what the Lord with do with answers to prayer.
How did my friends receive this? Well, I didn’t hear a Hallelujah. I didn’t get an Amen.
I did add both to my prayer list, and I’m praying for peace among friends.
