“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” (Proverbs 3:5, NIV)


I must be crazy. I can’t get enough of the 2016 presidential debates. This election season has become a circus and reminds me of a poorly produced reality TV show. I look at this great country of ours and find it hard to believe that those on the debate stages, both Democrat and Republican, are the best qualified people to serve as president. The name-calling, bullying, backstabbing, demeaning, and vulgarity simply do not represent the best qualities of leadership that I admire or want for this country or for the rest of the world. I am truly concerned for the future of our grandchildren. What kind of leadership are we teaching them? Is there a place for Christianity in politics?

I’m not going to rant and rave about any particular candidate. I simply want each of us to take a step back and think about our future. What kind of leader would you like to see in the White House? Who do you trust with the lives of your children and grandchildren?

Perhaps you’re just looking for free college, lower taxes, higher wages, or inexpensive healthcare? Sorry folks; everything comes at a price! All of the candidates on the debate stage make promises that are difficult, if not impossible, to keep.

Not one of the presidential candidates has the ability to bring the peace and security to our families that they promise. None of those candidates can keep us safe from the attacks of Satan or save us from our sinful selves. None of them can offer us eternal life!

It really doesn’t matter who is elected president of this country. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will still be in charge of all things. Our Almighty Father will be with us no matter who is president of this country.

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9, NIV)

Yes, we’re going to choose one these men or women as the next president of the United States of America. It’s extremely important to understand we are simply electing a new president. We are not electing a new Savior! We must never replace Christ’s values with their values. We should always, always keep Christ first – from the time we wake up in the morning to the time we close our eyes at night.

There is no debate – Jesus Christ is, and will always be, in control!

Enjoy your day, “Working for Christ!”

  1. I completely agree with you. I have a prayer card that reminds me to pray for whoever the Lord allows to become president, because in the end (as you said) it really doesn’t matter who the man or woman is. What matters is that we trust in our Lord enough to know that He will protect us from harm, danger, and evil.

    Yes. One will be our president. I refuse to choose any of that ilk. I will be writing someone in, so at least I can say that I voted. They may not win, but my conscience will be clean. This is disgraceful.

  6. First, I love the verse from Joshua. That was the one for my blog yesterday! And it has been a help for many years through many trials.

    Second, the title of this post suddenly brought to mind Jack Nicholson’s Joker in the first Batman with Michael Keaton, saying “Who ya gonna trust? Hubba, hubba, hubba…who ya gonna trust? The Batman?”

    I know who I’m thinking of as the joker in this election, but I’ll allow you to hang that image on whomever you wish. 🙂

  8. Mom said she voted in the primary just to try to keep the worst of the worst off the ballot in November, then asked God to forgive her for even voting for that person!

  11. “It’s extremely important to understand we are simply electing a new president. We are not electing a new Savior!” That’s it in a nutshell. Well spoken.
