Defeat Isn't the End

Well, it's over. We lost. Man, this stinks. I had almost forgotten what it felt like to have a Democrat win the race for the White House. As I recall (and can attest to this moment), it feels sort of like being punched in the stomach. We're going to need a little time to grieve about this. And to complain and commiserate. We're going to need to do some praying and some soul searching.

And then we need to pull ourselves together. We still live in the greatest country on the planet. It will take more than an election to change that. The sun still comes up in the east. Life goes on. God is still on His throne. For Christians, this world isn't really even our home. We're just pilgrims on our way to glory. We still have the same Great Commission we had yesterday.

Things may get tough in the coming days. Stay strong. We conservative Americans are not the type to just roll over and die. We will fight on. We only truly lose if we give up. So don't give up.
