Presidential Choices

I have to be honest I get a little nervous when election years begin to roll around and the candidates are announced. As a Christian I am going to vote for the person most in line with my views of faith and etc. I turned on the television (while I have been studying to the point of getting tendonitis) to "Larry King Live" to catch up on what is going on in the world. I soon found myself talking to the television while he was interviewing one of the presidential candidates...
I began to get worked up when the Holy Spirit reminded me of these verses:

Daniel 2:19-23
19 During the night the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a vision. Then Daniel praised the God of heaven
20 and said: "Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his.
21 He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. (emphasis mine)
22 He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him.
23 I thank and praise you, O God of my fathers: You have given me wisdom and power, you have made known to me what we asked of you, you have made known to us the dream of the king."

I am going to now calm down and trust in the Lord's providence. He is not limited by time...He is already there in 2008 and nothing slips through His hands that He doesn't allow. Just had to take a break from studying...
