It’s on everyone’s mind this week. The elections are now over, except for a few straggler locations.
Pundits have told us for months that we are a deeply divided nation. On Election Night, for a brief moment, we were all one body as we waited for election results to come in. Then, after the results were announced, we became a bipolar body for a few hours; some of us were immediately joyous and others were equally despondent.
Elections have consequences, however, and we must move on. I have been involved in the electoral process for two decades, and have both won and lost elections, so I have some personal experience in this area.
My best advice is this: it’s not what happens in your life that counts, it’s what you do about it.
So what can you do today? My best advice is to keep praising God with the beautiful musical score “Searching for the King.”
Praise is an essential part of worship, and it helps us refocus on what is really important in our lives. Besides that, it’s something you, the UKCP Chorus, can do beautifully!
Let the words of the 100th Psalm give you joy and peace:
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
