As a Christian Conservative I have absolutely no reason to be excited about this election. Neither one of these candidates represent me in any way. I like their personal stories, but socially and fiscally speaking, they both represent views that are contrary to mine. But during this time I am reminder of the words of the Psalmist:
“I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? 2 My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:1-2 NIV
In these words I find consolation for my soul, for this is the nation God chose for me to be born in and most importantly this is the nation that God chose for me to be born again in. I am, ethnically speaking, a Puertorrican, a proud Latino, a Hispanic raised in Puerto Rico, but send to the United States of America to be my home for the last twenty one years.
America is exceptional because God bless you to be so, not because you are better than anyone on your own strengths and abilities. But America has moved away from the God who bless you beyond what is deserving of any nation. His grace was and still is upon you, but God is bringing down the idols and will strip you of your pride, arrogance and lack of acknowledgment of WHO brought you this far. God will deal with the historical hypocrisies of this nation; God will indeed humble you; but may the church arise, for your glorious time to shine is here!
Romney will be the next President of the United States, but his promises will show to be bigger than what he is able to deliver; a familiar pattern for many politicians. May God bless you and may God bless the United States of America!
