Lord, I believe, help thou mine unbelief

I have to be honest, I feel sick inside today. My heart is so heavy and I feel so burdened. I KNOW without a shadow of a doubt that God is able to do whatsoever he pleases. He is able to intervene in a way that my shallow mind cannot even imagine. I am having to continuously go with a prayer on my heart today. America votes tomorrow for a leader of our great country. This is by far probably the most important election we've ever had, in my lifetime at least. I trust God, I'm just finding it hard to trust man. Where have our minds and hearts gone? What on earth are people thinking? I keep thinking of hymns to hum to help me:
Trust and Obey for there's no other way....., Have thine own way Lord, have thine own way, Thou art the potter, I am the clay......, What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bare, what a priveledge to carry, everything to God in prayer. Oh what peace we often forfeit, oh what needless pain we bare. All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.....

Proverbs 3:5 keeps pounding in my mind: Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.

I know God is still God, He is still King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Ruler; no matter what happens tomorrow. But I also know that from reading His Word that he has given nations what "they" want even if it's not what is best for them. So, I just keep trusting, believing, and loving in my weak way that all is well and all will be well.

Mark 9:17-24
And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit; and wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.
He answereth him , and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.
And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowing foaming. And he asked his father, How long is it ago this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.
And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

I Cor. 2:5
That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
