Election 2016

Annette-AdamsPoem by Annette Adams

Elections come and elections go,
All those of an earthly kind;
But it’s the election that lasts forever
That this writer has in mind.

Our earthly one has left much debris
In character digression:
The need to win at any cost
Left most with a bad impression.

We hungered for statesmen who honored our God,
Who wanted for all what was best,
We ended up grateful our Country survived,
And prayed for the coming test.

But this was, I repeat, temporary;
God’s permanent election remains:
When casting your vote for eternity,
Give thought to His loving campaign:

“You know I will keep all my promises,
My Words you can trust being true.”
So, be sure to cast your vote for Jesus,
Who has platform-perfect plans for you! 

(Jeremiah 29:11…”For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future… Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”)
