Man Proposes, God Disposes


The title of today’s post is one of my father’s favorite sayings. As I am writing this entry, I feel validated that voting for the newly elected president was the right thing to do and I know most Christians had their reservations but sometimes, God puts us to make tough decisions so that we may call on Him for wisdom and discernment. I have certainly gotten to the point and asked God, “If most Christians are not voting, am I the one who’s making the wrong decision?” One thing I know was that if we kept on the trajectory of the current administration where they have gotten so far to completely do away with even addressing anyone their proper gender pronoun, it is truly getting beyond absurd.

My husband and I watched the election coverage until the wee hours of the morning when they finally decided to announce the victory that should have been rightly called almost 2 hours before they announced it. Yesterday’s historic turnout only proves that NO ONE should trust the lamestream media and their projections. Though they tried to manipulate and discourage people with their erroneous numbers, the disgruntled Americans simply had enough.

Us deplorables, the “non-college educated” people of the United States as what the commentators repeatedly said, made a tremendous impact on the outcome of the election. Never mind the condescension as scripture says in 1 Corinthians 1:27,

“But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.”

Not only that, the impossibility of the whole situation proves that it is God-ordained and people can try to manipulate outcomes, but it is God’s will that prevails. What the Democrats felt early this morning was exactly how the Republicans felt back in 2008 and 2012. I am just glad that the whole thing is finally over and most importantly, we as believers definitely need to PRAY even more for our newly elected officials because we are living in such exciting yet tumultuous times where our redemption is nearer than when we first believed.

P.S. I wish President-elect Trump would have mentioned God in his speech but at least he started on a humble note acknowledging help from people. I can only hope that the new president will deliver on his promises.
