Put No Confidence in Princes

Posted By on April 4, 2012

Puff, puff, puff … just one more step, just one more house! I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.

I felt like the Little Engine that Could as I trudged up and down my neighborhood streets with five children in tow, pushing the baby in the stroller. It was 1992, and George Bush, Sr. was running for re-election against Democrat Bill Clinton and his vice presidential candidate Al Gore.

I was armed with campaign literature and my intrepid little army of helpers, and we were going to do our best to make sure the GOP held on to the White House as we distributed our flyers to our California Bay Area neighbors. This was the “most important election ever”!

    Loved your article!! I know that idealistic feeling of thinking if we pray and work for the right candidate to win, it will be ok or the “dark days!” Lived through lots of dark days, but they keep getting worse. I love Santorum for President. He is a different candidate this year and my husband and I decided to support him regardless of “his chances.” Being virtually unknown at the beginning of the race, he has made tremendous progress with little money. My husband sweats each race but I read while he paces. If God wishes him to win, He will. It is also possible, he really isn’t the right candidate. Or maybe our country has become un-correctable. A people who feel that it is ok to kill the weak maybe isn’t redeemable. Either way, I do my best for what I feel is best, and then rest in Him. God Bless.

    Thank you for this! I love your perspective, and have traveled a similar path myself. It makes elections and politics much less stressful to remember that God has already won the battle.
