The Importance Of Election Day

Somebody assumed this week that because I don't talk much about politics, that I must not vote. I was kind of shocked because that's not the truth at all. I have voted at every possible opportunity for as long as I can remember. I feel that my vote is my voice, whether it goes with the popular opinion or not.

The reason I don't talk about politics is simple: I don't enjoy talking about it. I stay up-to-date on the topics of the day, but I don't spend the day watching or listening to the news. It hurts my brain and my heart to listen to the way government has been warped over the years. I know there have always been problems and scandals in all levels of government, but I really don't want to waste brain power thinking about who's done what to who and how many times. That sounds more like a soap opera than our nation's representatives.

That being said, voting is one of the great opportunities we have in America. We may never be able to speak face-to-face with our governor or senators, but our voting records will show them exactly how we feel. My faith controls my vote, and I need to know who stands for and against the issues that matter most. Only then can I make informed choices in the voting booth.

If you are already planning to vote, I pray that you will spend a few minutes asking God to show you the politicians who follow Him and believe His priorities for our country. Thank you in advance for making your voice heard.

If you aren't planning to vote, I pray that God will change your heart attitude and show you the issues that mean something to Him. In just a few minutes, you can take a stand and let those in positions of power know what you stand for.

Let your vote be your voice today.
