Today I am thankful that I am able to vote. I have the opportunity to cast a vote that is representative of my beliefs, or as closely as I can come. I really feel this is an election of right and wrong–good and evil–and I am choosing the right. No one else may be in my voting booth with me, but God will know how I voted. I will answer for that some day.
To quote Andy Andrews from his post, For the Undecided…And For Those Who Are Already Certain:
“What is true? What is “the truth”? Does a political party determine what is true? Do majorities determine what is true? If a thousand people believe something that is untrue, can it then become true?
You might believe that only God determines what is true. If that is correct, then we’d better decide what God believes… We must find some way to discern what the truth really is.
And speaking of God…does He really see everything? I mean…everything? Does He really know our thoughts? Does He really watch everything we do? Seriously now…really…He records everything we do? He sees everything? Even when we are alone…in the voting booth…away from our friends?
When no one else knows which direction we are choosing for our country…does God really know how we vote? Because if He does, then yeah, the votes will be counted on November 6th…
But whether you vote and how you vote…THAT will be recorded for eternity.”
I am thankful I get to choose. I am thankful I get to vote and let my voice be heard.
What are you thankful for today?
