Why I’m Not Worried About Who Wins The Election

I’m not worried about who wins the election.

Why?

John 19:11.

You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above.

Pilate’s power over Jesus is, ultimately, because of God.

And what is true for Pilate is true for our presidential candidates: They would have no power if it had not, ultimately, been given to them from above.

What I’m trying to say is: God is control.

It might not seem like it at times…

…but it’s true.

To quote J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion:

Iluvatar’s (God’s) words to the Ainur (angels) after Melkor’s (the Devil’s) failed rebellion:

…no theme may be played that hath not its uttermost source in me, nor can any alter the music in my despite. For he that attempteth this shall prove but mine instrument in the devising of things more wonderful, which he himself hath not imagined.

…things more wonderful, which he himself hath not imagined.

It’s perfectly natural to feel like Han.

But: We are, ultimately, meant to feel like Luke:

So, on Election Day, I know what I’m going to do: I’m going to not worry.

  1. That and hopefully Congress won’t let the president get away with anything too crazy. Nice post! It’s a refreshing approach to the outcome of the election, I wish I could say I was as tranquil as you are. 😂

    1. Thank you! I’m glad you like what I wrote. 🙂

      I agree: Hopefully Congress won’t let the president get away with anything too crazy.

      “…I wish I could say I was as tranquil as you are.”

      That’s what meditation is for: becoming tranquil.
