Post-election blues, Walking with Christ

Good morning to all our friends. I hope all goes well, and everyone is in good health and spirits! If you guys ever need a friend to “shoot the bull” with, you only have to drop a line or two. You guys have sure been there for me, just as you were with Deb, so feel free to “bend my ear” at any time.
Well, I’m bout over my post-election blues, and figure all is in God’s hands regardless of what trials or tribulations he puts in front of us. Faith in God will see us through.
In the last post or two, can’t remember which (getting old!), I made reference to Isaiah 53. This scripture was sent to me by a great friend of Deb and I. His name is Sonnie…spelled IE at the end, though I’ve argued with him for years that…that ain’t how you spell Sonny! LOL
Sonnie has been such a pivotal point in my and Deb’s religious conviction, although Deb had walked with our Lord for quite some time.
In my case, that guy and several other of our friends cared enough about me to come to me on numerous occasions and tell me about the difference God had made in their own lives. I listened, but most times kinda just outta courtesy. For those that know me…imagine that!
They showed great patience, and eventually they, through their own examples of how they led their lives, I started seeing that these friends of mine were so happy. Yeah, they’d have their moments, who doesn’t, but they HAD something that I didn’t…peace.
They believed, and it showed! God indeed was a major player in regards to their lives. No matter the problem facing them…they simply put their faith in God.
Their ability to face whatever adversity that they were confronted with, they were handing with so much less stress than I seemed to be, and through their speaking to me about their “walk with Christ,” I knew without a doubt there was something missing in my own regard.
