The "call" was made just after eleven Eastern time. Finally, after the longest Presidential campaign in the history of our country comes to an end, we have a President Elect. The campaign has inundated our lives for the last five hundred days.
Senator Barack Obama (D-Il.) will be sworn in as the forty-fourth President of the United States in January 2009. He made his victory speech just after midnight (Eastern) on November fifth. President Elect Obama gained more of the popular vote than any Democratic candidate since Lyndon Baines Johnson.
Many people will be estatic about promised change. Others will be disappointed for days, weeks, and even months. Both feelings are nothing new. They're collectively felt, at least every four years.
When the emotions wane and life begins to happen again, it's important to take hold of what we believe. Even though the future is unclear, we serve the One who is firmly in control!
"Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.
Before the foundations were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God."
Psalm 90:1-3 (NIV)
Of this we can be sure!
