The inevitable

Last night I thought the world was going to end. I have been sick with worry about this election, because, well, I suck at change. I am scared at the direction that our country is going in. I feel like it slightly resembles good 'ol Sodom and Gomorrah. So, I as I lie in bed last night, I could not stop myself from having a full fledged freak out complete with kicking and screaming at John, ending with him fleeing for his life upstairs. I am pretty sure that he was completely baffled by my insanity, but we eventually worked out our communication, and my sweet husband wrapped me in his arms and allowed me to sob out all my anxiety. And, when I went upstairs to get Zoey this morning, there was a note waiting for me at the top of the stairs (and in my purse and in my car and on the bed). I had to sit down and really soak it in. Here is some of it:

"God is our refuge and our strenght,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth give way,
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah
...'Be still and know that I am God.
I will be exalted in the earth!'
The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress."

Psalm 46

I needed to hear that word. I know that I know that I know that my faith is not in my president; it is in my God. And, he is the one that put Obama in office, so I need to support my president, but I need to trust my Lord.
