I Voted!

Hello All,

Are you ready and excited to head to the polls?
And stay glued to the telly, til the tally is totaled?
Tis’ the campaigning season, so listen and take note,
In spite of who is elected, make sure that you vote.
We know we have problems that will never be solved,
Lest we lift up or voices, lest WE get involved.
But isn’t it interesting? A wonder in fact,
How this season defines us, and dictates how we act.
Now look in comparison, and look at the zeal
We should be spiritually stirred, and seek “change” for real.
The time for campaigning brings out the best and the worse,
If only we were as passionate about chapter and verse.
We contribute our money to our candidate’s campaign.
But pass the offering plate twice, we grumble and complain.
We learn about laws and the Electoral College,
“Yet my people perish from a lack of knowledge.”
We brush up on events and our political speak,
Eager to engage “opposers” and the politically weak.
Everybody’s a pundit, not ashamed to speak loud,
Not intimidated by “facts” or the size of the crowd.
So quick to voice our views, ready to defend tooth and nail
But where is our passion for those headed towards hell?
A large number will knock it though they still haven’t tried it
Sitting on the sidelines, they remain undecided.
But we’ll try to convince them and try to persuade;
For a chance to live better, we’ll be not dismayed.
Amazing how like “it’s just in us” …this passion and drive
And should be even more so, for us who are ALIVE!
It’s surely not wrong to have a passion for things
But what sort of action, should this passion bring?
Just a short month from now, a silence will ensue.
Other news will be news, still none of it new.
Until a few years have passed and that time comes again
Where our passion is ignited and our desire to win.
But if Christ be in you, and you hold His banner high,
There’s absolutely no reason to let the passion die.
So just to encourage you, for it is duly noted,
In spite of who wins “This Election”, I've already voted.

Here's The Word:

Daniel 5:21b ...till he knew that the most high God ruled in the kingdom of men, and that he appointeth over it whomsoever he will.

Titus 2:13-15 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify to himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

In Him,
