This came in an email from my Pastor, Chuck Larsen, at Country Bible Church:

When Bush was re-elected four years, Katie Couric dressed in black in mourning for the nation. She expressed her massive depression and it took some time to get out of it.
That's one way those who voted for McCain can respond to the events last night. However, there's a biblical example that is much better.
You might remember when David's child through Bathsheba became sick, he wept and fasted and prayed for seven days. His assistants were afraid for him and when the baby died they were afraid to tell him. But he saw their faces and he knew. The bible says in 2 Samuel 12:20, "Then David arose from the earth and washed and anointed himself and changed his clothes. And he went into the house of the Lord and worshipped. He then went to his own house." David
asked for food and his servants fed him and asked him how he could respond so.
He explained in so many words that when the issue was still undecided he did all that he could to influence it, but now that it was over he could only trust God and get on with his life. That's what McCain supporters should do; worship God and get on with life.
Daniel 2:21 tells us that God "changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings."
