Awesome God

Last night as I was listening to the election results on the radio, I was becoming more & more frustrated. Then Hatcher came into the kitchen singing "Awesome God" by Rich Mullins. He kept singing "Our God is an Awesome God, He reigns from heaven above!" over and over and over again. (If you've never heard the song, I've added it to the playlist. Check it out.)

I had to stop & smile. Here I am getting worked up over our next leader and Hatch is worshiping to God the Father without a care in the world. He had it right. I had it wrong. Forgive me Father.
No matter who was to be elected, God is on the throne and He reigns!

That is not to say we don't have a responsibility to be involved and vote, we just have to keep it in perspective and remember who is ruling over the universe and to who, eventually, every knee will bow, Republican, Democrat, or Independent.

It is so comforting that no matter the changes in my life, the God of Moses is still in control and will be for generations to come. Awesome God indeed!

Thanks Hatch. I am humbled every time I learn something from you.

Yeah, but did you hear that Obama might take the oath of office on a .... Well, anyways, good for you Hatcher. Last night at the dinner table Sarabeth prayed for John McCain to win. Tonight we prayed for wisdom for the new president. Amazing how kids can put the world into prospective very quickly.

Tis true... Another way God uses our children to teach us. Doesn't He do that all the time? Glad Hatcher is feeling good enough to be singing. Praise God for that!
