Today is a big day for me. I voted. Now, you may be thinking for the average American, whats the big deal? aren't we all voting? My former self would have said otherwise. Because if I'm honest, in regards to politics, I have struggled with apathy. I have succumb to the belief that my vote is just one and it doesn't matter. I have given up on our country due to discouragement. But after reading Proverbs 24:10-12, I am realizing that it is in the difficult day that we must be strong. Therefore, I have chosen to no longer use the excuse of ignorance. God knows my heart and my thoughts and I will be held accountable for my silence. So whether I chose the right candidate or not, I was not held silent. I believe that when our country is struggling and our rights are on the line, that we as Christians need to stand up even stronger rather than fading into the background and allowing others to speak for us. If you are discouraged, vote anyway. Your voice matters. I would hate for us to look back at this time period and wonder where all the Christians went.
