On This Day...

I spent the morning in prayer, thought and relative quiet (as quiet as the house can possibly be with a 4 year old and 2 year old)
I watched the news and the coverage of today's events.
Whether you like him or not, whether you agree with his politics or not, our country has a new president.

This morning two passages stood out to me:

Hebrews 13:8,17
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no advantage to you."

Romans 13 1&2
"Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves"

While the outcome may not have been what I hoped for, it is the outcome we are faced with.
I respect the office President Obama holds, and I respect him as my President. I will pray for him and his family, because I know he has a very long uphill battle ahead of him.

Whether you like it or not, today is a historic day.
