Today marks a monumental day in American history. Donald Trump has been named President elect after a tough campaign season marred with controversy. The results of the presidential election have left many people feeling distraught and saddened. In a recent post on his This Life I Live blog, Rory Feek shares an inspiring message to those people left in shock over Trump's victory.
Staying politically impartial, Feek uses his own experiences in life to express a message of hope.
"I didn't stay up late last night and watch the election or keep checking the computer for the results. Instead I went to bed early. Not because I didn't care, but because I did care. I have a very strong feeling about where we are today. It's the same feeling I had last night and all the nights before that.
Everything's going to be okay, even if it's not okay.
I believe that. I have to. I've learned to. Sometimes things happen in life that don't seem to make sense, and they're scary, because you don't know what the future holds. But God has a plan bigger than the one I can see and I have to trust Him.
It might get worse before it gets better though. My family can attest to that. But in the end, we are where we are for a reason, and someday - maybe not in this lifetime, or even this side of heaven - we'll see things in a different light. I believe that too.
And in the meantime, though the world seems dark and scary... there are rays of hope that bring a smile back to our faces and renew our faith in mankind."
He continues his blog post talking about his own personal "ray of hope." Feek shares that his daughter Indiana's hero (Rachel, a TV personality who teaches sign language) will be having a concert at their home this Saturday. He attributes Rachel and her show to helping Indiana learn sign language and says Joey would be so proud.
