I am 20 years old, which means that four years ago I was 16, and 16 is less than 18. Meaning this is the first presidential election I can vote in. What a great time to be an adult.
I don’t know if you can tell or not but, I am not too sold on either (or all 4) candidate that is running for president. As I watch the debate tonight (and the previous two) I cannot help but be entertained by the two children on stage arguing over he said she said situations. Which was all fun and games until I remembered one of these children will be running our country in a few months. Plus, anytime someone talks about giving away free college like candy on Halloween I can’t help to get a little (a lot) triggered.
Mostly because I am currently a college student going to school debt free through working 30 hours a week, while staying involved on campus, investing in my peers, and going to class, and working out, and occasionally sleeping in my all so foreign bed. So, the idea that a household with twice the family income as mine, qualifies for free in-state tuition grinds my gears. Any-who, this post isn’t supposed to be political and I’ll step off my soapbox now.
Overall voting in this election is a lose, lose scenario for me and I don’t like the direction our country could be headed regardless of who is elected. Yet I am not stressed about it even if Trump goes super Trump and starts a Nuclear war while allegedly groping women. Or if Hillary goes around risking national security through deleting emails as her husband allegedly gropes women.
Why am I at peace with all this? Because I know Gods plan for this country and more specifically his plan for me, is more sovereign than any “utopic” strategy a flawed human being can create. That regardless of what happens in this election cycle I know that God’s plan will not be derailed, and my life will still take the course God has in mind for me. A plan routed in his infinite wisdom and based on the deep love he has for not only me but also every American citizen and human being on earth.
So yes, I am not found of either candidate, but no I am not worried. I have faith in God’s ability to work all things for good.
As always, make good choices, share if you like what I said, comment if you have something to add, give that follow button a hit, and I will see you on Tuesday.
