I went to go vote last Tuesday in the primary election, and I was surprised that I was able to walk right in and cast my vote. There were no lines, there was no waiting—in fact, there were only three people there. We have had early voting for the past couple of weeks and I realize that a good amount of people could have voted then. However, this is a very important election, and the primary determines who will get the party nomination for the presidency. As I went about my day proudly displaying my “I voted” sticker, running around town doing my errands, I was shocked that no one else had a sticker like mine.

I am concerned about the future of my country. I am concerned about the legacy that is being left for my children and grandchildren, and what our country will look like in the future. Edmund Burke was right when he said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” We must pray for the future of this country, and for all of our leaders, whether it is our candidate or not.  Once we pray, then we leave the outcome to the Lord. He is on his throne, and we don’t need to fear, instead we should trust that as Proverbs 21:1 says: “The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; he turns it wherever he will.” Ultimately, the hearts of our leaders are in the hands of the Lord, and it is the Lord that will guide and direct them to accomplish his plan.
