This election may be the first in the history of the United States that is not settled by the people. In fact, this election was set up long before the campaign ads began, when a nonpolitical candidate entered the mix. Donald Trump is not a politician. Yet from the early days of his campaigning for the 2016 presidential election, he was targeted as unfit to serve in the office of the president.

Another president was also called unfit to proclaim the highest office in our country. His name was Andrew Jackson. He was a war hero, operated off the cuff, said what he felt and wasn’t intimidated by anyone. The political elite had no use for the man. He didn’t fit the mold. He was many times disrespectful, crude and his friends trashed the White House at the inaugural ball.

We are coming to the dramatic climax of the 2020 presidential election, or are we? Buildings are being boarded up across the country for fear that violence and looting will occur during the election and after. The general population has been in isolation for eight months. Depression is running rampant. Nerves are on edge. We’re being mandated to wear masks and stay at home and yet the world continues to revolve and spew out hate and anger in gross amounts.

When the votes are counted, when the recounts occur, when the challenges go on for months and months, we may not know the true results for a very long time. And yet, this is the only process we have as a democratic society, where the voice of the people can still be heard. This precious right we have as citizens is one of many blessings we have as Americans.

Some folks threaten to leave our country if their candidate doesn’t win. Some will fight another civil war for the same reason. Many will accept what happens and go on with their lives. Some will be angry for a while, but eventually settle for the results. Some will brandish the 2020 election as a result of a pandemic, the economy, personalities rather than accomplishments, but whatever happens, it will be the will of God that decides the outcome.

God already knows who will win and lose. He has counted all the votes and knew before they were even cast who our next president would be. He has laid the master plan of our existence well in advance of our birth. If He has this omniscience, all knowing ability, we have nothing to fear. Instead of looking for the answers to our future from men who are flawed, lets turn our hearts to the One who does everything for the good of those who love Him.

Do not be afraid. This will end. It will go down in history as one of the most hateful elections ever, but it will end. It’s up to us to accept the results as God’s will.


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. I have a peace— waiting on king Cyrus and his blessing— and oh how I love Andrew Jackson— old hickory— his home, the hermitage is a place of peace— as it was during his time there— much like Mt Vernon was to Washington— we each need our refuge — I wait in the Lord

    I read an article this morning about how Biden is convinced he has already won, that Trump will challenge and his army of lawyers will tie up every court in the land until the end of the year. But what if Trump wins?? Since he “knows” that the fix is in, he’ll have to reveal his hand to challenge the decision himself – Sorry, adding new conspiracy theories does not help gaining PEACE in the end…
