Leaders come and go. Governments also come and go. And sometimes, even when a government is still in place, it may decide to shut down for a time. Be thankful that the Lord of heaven and earth never sleeps, never shuts down, never ceases to care for His people. While our elected officials struggle to govern and appear to search for a way forward, God still maintains His sovereign control over not only our country, but the far reaches of the universe as well. God's commitments are sure and are not influenced by public opinion or elections. Truly this is something to be thankful for as Washington tries to find its way. This is something you can share with your children; peace comes from knowing that the Lord of Lords and King of Kings reigns even now at the right hand of His Father. Praise God!
