For my very first posting, I am going to break the rules and talk about politics. The preliminary caucuses were last night in our state, so our family and friends have recently had many discussions about candidates, policies, etc... Right about this time of the year, I feel 2 things:
1) I hate politics. I get tired of it all.
2) I'm bringing children up in this world where God is being squeezed out of every arena. It's frustrating, maddening, at times depressing. Logic and common sense aren't popular anymore.
I was mulling this over last night when Matt (hubby) came home from the caucuses.
This morning, I read the following in Psalms:
Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his anointed, saying, "Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us"
He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision. (Psalm 2:1-4)
He who sits in the heavens LAUGHS!! I read that over and over again, and laughed myself! What an encouragement! Our amazing God can look at the most powerful men on earth plotting against Him, and shake his head and laugh.
I have to say that my grumbling from last night was turned into rejoicing this morning! Thank you, gracious Lord!!
