People dying, families are hurting, marriages are suffering, education is hemorrhaging, teachers are stressing, countries are reeling, pandemic is ravaging, election is nearing.
As the big day draws near, I decided to share this poem hoping it puts things in perspective for somebody out there. If the energy and attention used to select a physical person in this election was to shift towards choosing an eternal king who reigns eternally, most if not all earthly issues would dissipate. As you cast your votes on earth, remember there's a supreme ruler in heaven who control the universe and everything in it.
Leadership Who’s going to steer this volatile ship? This fractured US vessel Floating on rough seas
Oceans of uncertainties Marginalized Citizens have been surfing
On racist waves for centuries
History snitches that all former captains Of this boat have led it with bias agendas And a flawed navigation system that have led The country to abysmal destinations Disjointed from the original blueprint Away from the kingdom compass That guarantees love and justice for all Whether popular or electoral college votes Voters must know that God vetoes them all Because the government is on His shoulders As God’s people go to the polls with discernment rest assured that homeland security
Is beyond the next human being
Who will reside in the White House.
