They grab your attention and are used frequently (usually out of context). The truth is that politics will only ever do so much. If you want real hope and real change - that is a heart condition. It's something that only comes from a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
So while we can be responsible and vote and participate with our government, be sure you place your hope in Jesus. He's the only one who will not let you down.

#94. Return Day: Georgetown, DE
It's a custom that began in the 18th century - the day after the election, Georgetown, DE hosts a county wide festival while the returns are counted. 2010 Return Day is actually tomorrow. After the parade, Delaware's political leaders on the Main Stage on The Circle in front of the historic Sussex County Courthouse (circa 1837) will gather to hear the Town Crier deliver the returns from the Courthouse balcony.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Matt Redman is married to Beth and they have five children; Maisey, Noah, Rocco, Jackson and Levi. Based in Atlanta they are part of Passion City Church with pastors Louie and Shelley Giglio.
This is the third church plant Matt has been involved with, having previously been on the team for Soul Survivor,Watford, and The Point in the UK.
On May 22nd of this year, Matt became an intergalactic worship leader, when the crew of the STS-132 and International Space Station chose his song Shine to be there wake-up music. That's right - Matt Redman's songs in SPACE!
His early compositions include The Heart of Worship, Better is One Day and Once Again. More recent songs have included ‘Blessed Be Your Name’ and ‘You Never Let Go’ – both written with wife Beth and encouraging us to worship God through the storms of life.
As Matt explains, “Blessed Be Your Name is a declaration of something which we’ve both found to true in the tough seasons of life – that to worship God and trust Him no matter what will always be the best path to take."
Matt is also the author of three books which all center around the theme of worship. The Unquenchable Worshipper unpacks what a healthy heart of worship might look like, and how that translates into the lives we lead.
Facedown explores how we can paint a big picture of God through our songs and actions.
The third book, Blessed Be Your Name, co-authored with Beth, is an encouragement to trust in the sovereignty and goodness of God, even when to do so seems costly.
Matt has also compiled two other books – The Heart of Worship Files and Inside-Out Worship - practical worship-leading advice from many experienced leaders around the globe.
