In an Election year, I can't help but to think forward to the Coming of Christ.  I mean, really.  In an election where the campaigns are full of insulting each other, petty arguing, lies, and empty promises.  Not to mention that as a voter, I have to decide which candidate I agree with the most.  Not only that, but the issues I disagree on?  I have to choose which candidate i don't think is out to ruin our country (in my opinion anyway).  and it throws into sharp relief that which we are lacking.  Which is really good, honest, powerful, pure, and righteous government.  And we're not just missing that here in the USA, but everywhere.  Every country has extreme problems, because it is ruled by extremists, or just ruled by mortals.  We're not perfect.  not one of us.
Well, there is One.
I have the Hallelujah Chorus on my iTunes, and every time it comes on, i just get this really powerful feeling in my blood.  And there are very few things that make me feel that way.  Imagine when you're at the beach, and you're laying out in the sun with your arms outstretched, and you feel the sun warming your blood and circulating that incredible warmth throughout your body.  That's what i mean when i say a feeling in my blood.  and what is it that i feel? I fell warmth and comfort--I feel amazement and gratitude.  and most of all Joy.  You know why?  because that's what Hallelujah is.
Going back to this election year... wouldn't it be so much easier if we just had an omnipotent, God of all creation, all powerful, loving leader of the world? wouldn't that be so much better?  To be able to trust Him to always make the right decision, every time.  And you know what the best part is? It is going to happen.
"For the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.  King of Kings and Lord of Lords. And He shall reign forever and ever. Hallelujah!"
If you haven't listened to the Hallelujah chorus in a while... give it a listen.  And compare that song of praise and love and peace and gratitude to the feeling you're going to have in November... regardless of which candidate wins.
