I have had a strange sense of calm ever since the election. No fear, no depression, nothing but calm. I can only interpret this as God's peace that passes all understanding. I haven't posted specifically on this since I'm still trying to process and sort it all out in my own mind, but I had a sense, when I went to bed on Election Night and Obama was pulling ahead, that God was telling me it would all be okay. I can't explain it, and that's why I haven't posted, but I had, at the time, the distinct impression that God was saying it had to be this way and not to be afraid. I felt that God was letting me know that my citizenship, as much as I love America, is NOT here. Maybe, just maybe, this is another stage of us becoming separated from this earth, as has been mentioned before in other posts. We still have to live here as long as God wants us to, still have to make a living and get on with life here, but we have something so much better that is coming shortly, and it comes closer with every passing moment. If Romney had won, very possibly that would have delayed prophecy, at least in our eyes. With Obama's re-election, Israel is still alone, perhaps even more so now than in the past 4 years. In electing Obama, the people have spoken (though I do believe a fair amount of voter fraud contributed to the final count) and, in doing so, have chosen the party that denied God 3 times at their national convention.
I wish I could adequately explain how I'm feeling about all this, but even now, 4 days after the election, it's still hard to put it into words. All I know is we are waiting for our true citizenship to begin. We were once proud to be Americans -- now it's time to be proud to be Christians.
