Concluding thoughts on the US Presidential election

Once again our electoral process worked and the American people went to the polls and voted for their candidate. Donald J. Trump, and American businessman, author, and entrepreneur, was the winner over Democrat candidate Hillary R. Clinton.

Hillary Clinton has been deeply embedded in the political machine her entire life. She rose to notice and prominence as a young 27-year-old lawyer in 1974 when she was on a junior member of the House Judiciary Committee’s temporary Impeachment Inquiry staff during the House of Representatives’ investigation of Watergate. Subsequently, she was appointed the first female chair of the Legal Services Corporation in 1978 and became the first woman partner at Rose Law Firm in 1979. She has been First lady of Arkansas when her husband Bill Clinton was governor, First Lady of the United States when her husband was elected President, Senator for the State of New York, and Secretary of State.

Her public life has been one of constant rising success, all the way to November 7, 2016 when she nearly won the American presidency, but lost it instead.

As it is, Republican nominee Donald Trump, an outsider who has never held an elected position, was elected.

I’ve never seen the world accept a defeat laying down. I’ve seen what the world does when its plans are thwarted, especially when it had pinned its hopes on one who is as deeply embedded in it as Hillary Clinton is.

If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. (John 15:19)

Friends, continue to pray.

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).
