I'm thankful to vote

Oh, Lord,  I could have been born anywhere-- Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan, North Korea, Argentina, Afghanistan, India, Mexico.... But I was born in the United States. I don't know why you gave that to me; the privilege and responsibility overwhelm me with gratitude. My country is not perfect. It's not the Promised Land.  It's not heaven on earth. But I am free. I have opportunity . I can speak out. I can vote people in or out of office. Thank you , Lord. I'm grateful for this privilege. I don't discount it. I will not malign what you've given me  or demand more, as if I'm entitled  to this freedom, prosperity, and support. I deserve much less. And so many millions around the world don't have a fraction of what I do. Thank you for my freedom. Thank you for my voice. Thank you for my vote. I promise to use each to honor and glorify your name. In Jesus' name,  Amen. " You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your  freedom
