Do not fear, for I am with you, do not be afraid, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.
Isaiah 41:10 NRSV
I have loved you with a love that lasts forever.
And so with unfailing love,
I have drawn you to myself.
Jeremiah 31:3 CEB
No matter who “wins” today, God’s faithful presence and love will neither be diminished nor enhanced; it will be the same at the end of the day as it is right now. Cast your vote and then rest in God’s love today—and tomorrow and always. ~dan
Cacophonous might best describe the sounds in the chimes today. What do you hear?
Vote in love
Grace and Peace to you.
My prayer is that you will vote
in love, not in fear,
that those who govern
will act in love, not fear,
and that you will make every choice,
large or small,
every day, all your life,
not in fear, but in love,
for this alone can heal the world,
and I believe it shall.
A post by Pastor Steve Garnaas-Holmes on his blog Unfolding Light
A prayer for today
Let nothing disturb you;
let nothing dismay you.
All things pass;
God never changes.
Patience attains all that it strives for.
They who have God find they lack nothing:
God alone suffices.
An oft quoted prayer (and favorite prayer of mine) from Teresa of Avila (1515-1582). Thank you Christin Coffee Rondeau for reminding me/us of this prayer on Election Day.
