Dutch Sheets shared his observations of the outcome of last week’s midterms elections. He also shares three reasons for his position, including how he was not surprised. A bit disappointed yes, but not discouraged.
Those who have followed me for several years will recall that I’ve been very open and honest regarding past elections, even when that honesty meant an acknowledgement of emotional devastation and/or the predicting of dire consequences. I’ve never been comfortable attempting to ease the pain for believers with religious clichés (e.g. “God is in control,” or “God is sovereign,” both of which I’ve already heard regarding this election). I believe it is my responsibility to speak truth and always be completely honest in my responses. Having said this, I can say without hesitation that I am NOT in any way discouraged.
