To my dear Christian friends and family, devastated by the results of yesterday’s elections, I offer these words of comfort from Psalm 46:

1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.

2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,

3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.

No matter how cataclysmic or catastrophic events seem, we will not fear because God is our ever-present help. So let’s continue to pray and work and hope for the best. President-elect Obama is also in the hand of the Lord.
