Uppermost in our hearts and prayers today should be the reality that America is in God's hands. In a few hours we will know the outcome of this election. Here's my video message on the election.

Last week during the furor and fray of the election, while praying that division and damage would not permanently mar relationships between family members, church members, friends, coworkers and communities, I clearly "heard" these words: "Brace yourselves." Prayerfully as we continue to pray for the best we are preparing for the outcome, come what may.

As I write this report, I'm getting flashbacks from earth's heroes, military captains and even star ship commanders from many favorite films; all saying: "Prepare for impact!"

Now it's almost as if I can hear my grandfather the Rev. Martin Luther King's sermon as he assured us during the 20th century Civil Rights Movement that God would be with us, even as we were "coming in on broken pieces."

“Some on boards . . . some on broken pieces . . . So it came to pass, that they escaped all safe to land” Acts 27:44 (KJV).

Let’s pray for America and brace ourselves, remembering to vote for life in all elections. Vote today if you haven't voted yet. Be a voice and not an echo.

Finally, let’s be encouraged by the words of Apostle Paul as he was inspired by God's Holy Spirit in Colossians 1:20-29 (MSG): “The broken and dislocated pieces of the universe . . . get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant harmonies, all because of his [Jesus Christ's] death, his blood that poured down from the Cross . . . Don’t walk away from a gift like that! Stay grounded . . . not . . . distracted or diverted . . . There's a lot of suffering to be entered into in this world — the kind of suffering Christ takes on . . . This mystery has been kept in the dark for a long time . . . now it's out in the open.

"God wanted everyone . . . to know this rich and glorious secret inside and out, regardless of their background, regardless of their religious standing. The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you; therefore you can look forward to sharing in God's glory . . . That is the substance of our message. We teach in a spirit of profound common sense so that we can bring each person to maturity. To be mature is to be basic. Christ! No more, no less."
