"That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

One Nation Under GOD

The Fourth of July is often a hard day for me.  I am very patriotic...patriotic about our founding fathers and the principles that this nation was built on. So really, my patriotism is linked to my faith and trust in God.  I'm not patriotic for this current nation we live in, as it has been going downhill fast, but for the past and what this nation started as. Nostalgic for a time that I never even lived in. So, that is why it can be a hard day for me.  This country isn't what it used to be, or what it's supposed to be.  It makes me sad to see the decline. 

When I was a kid and I would watch the movie The Sound of Music, I never understood why they cried when they sang the song "Edelweiss".  Now I understand, because I feel that way when I sing our national anthem.  I get a tug at my heart and a tear in my eye.  I don't know exactly what is in store for America, but I fear it is not good.  It can't continue on the path it's on--spiritually or economically--and keep prospering.  I will continue to trust God and pray Psalm 91 over my family.  Hope for the best, prepare for the worse.

Forget God bless America...why exactly should He bless America?  God judge America would be more accurate, soooo....America BLESS GOD.

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” ~ Abraham Lincoln


  1. So true. I feel very much the same way. I try to remember how much we've been blessed by God and thank him for that. I pray it will turn around. Maybe these hard times will turn His people back to Him and He will be pleased to bless America once more. We can HOPE.
    God bless you and your family this Fourth of July.
