Renew Our Spirit of Freedom

Restore us, Lord God Almighty;
make your face shine on us,
that we may be saved.
Psalm 80:19

I’m thankful to live in a country where I can wake up the morning after a hotly contested election and go about my day in peace and security.

After months of bitter campaign ads and tense debate, I’m in awe of the quietness of this morning.

Whether we are in joy or in sorrow over the results of the election, we still live in freedom.

What an incredible gift.

I think we can all agree, regardless of who we voted for, that there is work to be done in this nation. Let’s not stand in each other’s way with stubborn hearts and lazy conviction.

I pray that we would all be renewed in the spirit of love and community that Christ modeled for us in the Gospel. I pray that we would recognize His spirit in us today and that we would have the courage and boldness to act out of it.

We may not be a perfect country, but our freedom is something others pray for everyday. Let’s not waste it.
