Just wanted to send out a prayer and a blessing to all our American friends on the board (both right and left) who are headed to the polls today.
This campaign has been hard-fought and feels like it's been going for a decade.
Regardless of who wins, there lies major battles ahead to charting a course back to sustainable budgets, and social peace. I know I am not alone in Canada in wishing you well. Many here do, if only because our economic and social future is somewhat tied to yours.
My advice for you today is to pray for wisdom, mark your ballot and as you sit down tonight to watch the returns, talk a bit with your families about where you want to be and what you want to accomplish in the next four years.
At the very least, that conversation will be more fruitful for everyone than the early pre-game ritual of watching a bunch of talking heads lie to each other and the rest of the country on national television.
America is at its best when it's purpose-driven. As you decide your country's path for the next four years, I pray that the Lord guide you, and give you the faith, hope, love and wisdom you need to choose wisely and live out your dreams courageously.
