Inauguration 2009

Regardless of my personal feelings about President-elect Barack Obama taking office today, I am resting in God's sovereignty over the situation.

"Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God."-Romans 13:1 (ESV)

If this wasn't part of the Lord's perfect plan, it would not be happening.

Please join me in praying for the future of our Nation, the decisions that are yet to be made by Obama and others in Washington, the outcome of those decisions, the health of our economy, the war and impending changes regarding it, and also for the safety of our new President, his wife, and his two daughters.

Also, though everyone has a different opinion about President Bush and his wife, Laura, I think it's important to be grateful for the past 8 years that he dedicated to our country. He took office during a very tumultuous time in America and despite differing opinions on how situations were handled, his reign as President was also part of a plan bigger than we can know. I pray for health, peace, happiness, and a huge sigh of relief for President and Mrs. George W. Bush.

  1. Thank you for your lovely message. You know I could see a genuine liking between the Bushes and Obamas over the past few weeks of transition. That is how Christians should treat one another. I truly admire the Bushes as conducting themselves with dignity and morality over the years in the Presidency. I expect the same from the President and Mrs. Obama. I pray that God will guide President Obama, his advisors, cabinet and the U.S. Congress to do what is in the best interest of the country. Mistakes will be made but they ,as we, are human.
