As sense of excitement comes over me as I sit here thinking about it. Not so much about the candidates I picked but the process I get to be a part of. My one vote, as small a contribution as it may be, is a part of a greater whole. It’s not an insignificant part. As a matter of fact it’s a necessary part.
Casting my vote made me a part of something bigger than myself. I believe we all have a longing to be a part of something greater – a sense of belonging – a necessary part. We hope our part makes a difference. As it pertains to the outcome of our election and who becomes our next Commander in Chief, I hope my part makes a difference. After all it affects my life.
The best vote I cast was 22 years ago. There were only two candidates up for election – Jesus and me. I cast my vote with Jesus and things have never been the same since. He has radically changed my life. No one could be a better Commander in Chief. He turned my life from a kingdom of darkness to a kingdom of light. My future changed from death and destruction to life and peace.
That one vote brought a sense of belonging to something so much bigger than myself. I became a part of the Kingdom of God and a part of God’s family – a significant part, a necessary part.
Have you cast your vote yet? There are really only two choices. Choose wisely, it will affect everything.
