November Gratitude Day 7

Source HERE.

I'm thankful today that the elections are over. I'm praying that our leaders will not do what they did for the last four years. That they will look past party lines and serve this great country they claim to love. This is not a jab at any one party. I just want for our congress/house/leaders to be able to move us all forward. I'm praying for our POTUS, for wisdom to guide him. For his health, for his marriage, his children. Congratulations Mr. President.
I pray that as a country we can come together and move forward. 
 I'm also thankful that through everything, there is one constant and in Him I put my trust. In Christ alone.

In Christ alone, my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My comforter, my all in all
Here in the Love of Christ, I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save
Til on that cross as Jesus died,
The Wrath of God was satisfied,
for every sin on him was lain
Here in the death of Christ, I live

There in the ground, his body lay
Light of the World, by darkness slain
Then bursting forth, in glorious day,
up from the grave he rose again!
And as he stands in victory, sin's curse
has lost its grip on me
For I am his, and he is mine
bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me
From life's first cry, til final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from his hand
Til he returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ, I'll stand
