Where do we go from here?

Lord, I feel like I am mourning. Mourning for the loss of good and humanity in this country. Mourning for inclusiveness and love for everyone. I was so sure love would win, but it didn't. It didn't by a landslide and I'm finding myself wondering what kind of country we live in, what kind of people with live with. I don't understand how this happened. I don't understand how people that say they are your followers, who love you and want to live by you have voted for the one person who in no way reflects that. I mourn for America, but I feel like I mourn for you. 

Let me change this tone actually. Lord, this election was won out of fear of one side, but is now feared from the other. Despite what has happened, and what may happen, please let us all relenquish fear and trust you. In that I very much include myself. I know you have a plan, and you have your right to change your mind, and you have given us choices and there will be outcomes that follow them. But Lord, in this, for myself and for millions of others, for us all, please help us find trust in you, closeness in you, love in you, be examples of you as we face what is to come. Maybe this had to happen for reasons we do not know. There is a part of me that was scared that if she won, the opposing uproar would be the end for many, and maybe she didn't because of that, because of so many things. I do not know and it is not for me to understand. What it is for me to do is trust in you and continue to love the way you would want me to love. To act the way you would want me to act and to be a light in darkness. Help me do that. Help me find strength and overcome this sorrow quickly. Move onward and upward and continue to be a representation of your love the way you sent your son to be. Help me find peace in you when times are hard and questionable, help me clear judgement from my mind and unite even with those I feel betrayed by. I love you Lord, and I know you love us. I know we hurt you and make you sad, and mad, and I am sorry. I am sorry for my individual actions and the actions of this nation. It is scary to know you change your mind and you gives us what we want, it is scary when you teach us lessons the hard way, because they are the ultimate lesson. Lord, help me be bigger than fear, be better than fear, and ultimately not fear because I love you and I know you love me. I trust you, I trust you with my life, I trust you with my families lives, I trust you with this nation and I trust you with this world. We have been given a choice and the choice has been made. As we move forward, please give us strength, fill us with love, and help us grow in faith as we turn to you. Turn fear in to trust in you for the right reasons. If this is a lesson we must learn, then help us to learn it, to educate ourselves through the process and in the end be a better people and a better nation, however that outcome's path is meant to be taken.
