We all know that the three topics we never discuss in polite company are sex, religion and politics. It is almost impossible to avoid the topic of politics today if you are still breathing. We are a divided country, an angry country, a mistrusting country and a country in more trouble than who will be our next president.

The problem as I see it is we have put and continue to put out trust and faith in men/women. Psalm 118:8 says “It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.” We keep being let down and disappointed in those we have trusted to do the right thing. So maybe it’s time to stop. Of course we have to elect someone and my husband says we get the leaders we deserve, which doesn’t say a lot for our judgment. But let’s not walk into this election blindly, let’s remember in Jeremiah 29:11 God says, “I know the plans I have for you, plans to take care of you, not to abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.”

While we are called to live out our days here on earth, our future can and should be in the hands of our Creator. If your future is not assured, get to know the man who holds it in His hands.

I know the plans I have for you, plans to take care of you, not to abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.
