Yep. This speaks to me, personally. The state of things has me pretty angry, but I'm trying to let God help me deal with that. I do believe I should vote my morals, but I can't be in God's will if I'm marinating in anger.

Wow, what an honor it is to have posted something that might actually HELP you....

.... I try to remember a few things: God's got this. I'll be okay, no matter what. I can always find joy, in any situation by simply acting in God's will. And how do I know I'm acting in God's will, and not mine? If I have no selfish motivations or seek no personal profit -- or any type -- in any outcome, in the choices and decisions I make.

I find the part before personal profit to be most admirable and likely to cause much joy in and around you. I am puzzled by your attitude about profit though. Doesn't G*d want you to be happy? Wouldn't doing His will be profitable?

YES, “God’s got this” is what I’ve been trying to tell myself.

Thank you, Laz.
