It’s November 8th, 2016, the day we will elect the 44th President of the United States of America. And if there is one thing I am reminding myself, both today and all the other days that have brought us to this second Tuesday of November, it’s this:
We are electing a President, not El HaGadol (the Faithful God).
We are electing a President, not El HaShamayim (the God of the Heavens).
We are electing a President, not El Emet (theGod of Truth).
We are electing a President, not El Yeshuati (the God of my Salvation).
We are electing a President, not El Olam (the God of Eternity).
We are voting for a President, not a King and certainly not a Savior.
And when I read the words of this sweet book (a book that will be wrapped under the Christmas tree this year), I couldn’t help but remember that the one we REALLY serve is both a Good Good Father and a perfect, loving King. Which is EXACTLY why I don’t have to fret about tonight’s results or worry about January’s swearing-in.
So what book am I giving away this month?
I am giving away TWO copies of Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin and Pat Barrett.
And why am I giving away this book?
I am giving this book away (on the day of the 2016 Presidential election) because I think it’s important to remember that no matter the electoral votes, or the candidate outcome, or what happens in the Senate or the House, our Father is still a good, good father.
And two, I like Chris Tomlin; and I like this #1 hit song; and I like these sweet and happy illustrations that go along with this sweet and happy story.
Okay, so maybe that was more like four reasons. Oh well! I like it, and I want a couple of you to have it.
So what are a few of my favorite line(s) from this book?
A Good Good Father protects you.
A Good Good Father teaches you.
A Good Good Father makes you feel better.
A Good Good Father gives you what you need.
A Good Good Father fills life with music and laughter.
And most of all,
A Good Good Father loves you!
So how can you win this book?
In the comment section below, share a way that God has been a Good Good Father to you and on Wednesday at 4PM (EST), I will randomly select TWO winners to enjoy this book!
Happy Election Day and Happy “Remembering that He is GOOD, no matter who is elected” Day!
