It’s official, Donald Trump is now President Elect Donald Trump. No matter who you voted for, you’re probably waking up today with a bit of an election hangover and your mind, body, and soul is likely in a state of shock (whether it be happy or fearful shock). So now what?
I don’t have an answer for that. Thankfully, Joey+Rory’s Rory Feek does. His answer? No matter what, everything is going to be okay.
In a new post today on his This Life I Live blog, Feek begins with some soothing words for his readers. It’s a message I think everyone should take to heart.
I didn’t stay up late last night and watch the election or keep checking the computer for the results. Instead I went to bed early. Not because I didn’t care, but because I did care. I have a very strong feeling about where we are today. It’s the same feeling I had last night and all the nights before that.
Everything’s going to be okay, even if it’s not okay.
I believe that. I have to. I’ve learned to. Sometimes things happen in life that don’t seem to make sense, and they’re scary, because you don’t know what the future holds. But God has a plan bigger than the one I can see and I have to trust Him.
It might get worse before it gets better though. My family can attest to that. But in the end, we are where we are for a reason, and someday – maybe not in this lifetime, or even this side of heaven – we’ll see things in a different light. I believe that too.
And in the meantime, though the world seems dark and scary… there are rays of hope that bring a smile back to our faces and renew our faith in mankind.
Rory continues his blog post by telling about a special guest that will be performing on his farm this Saturday . If you’d like to read the full story, you can do so here. It’s a heartwarming blog post.
Anyway, on this odd day in American history, just remember today to stop, take a breath, and smile because everything’s going to be okay in the end. And if nothing else, the next election is only four years away.
