   The United States of America has the best of foundations.  Our forefather’s founded this nation on godly and biblical principles, and they are woven throughout The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, and can be seen throughout the essays written in The Federalist Papers. We were founded and based on freedom, liberty and the desire to freely serve God. 

    Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 3:17 that, “Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."

   In the darkest hour of King David’s life he focuses on the Messiah, Jesus Christ, that he knew would come some day and declares in Psalm 22:4 “Our fathers trusted in You; they trusted, and You delivered them.”  David goes on in throughout the book of Psalms to declare how God through His mercy, righteousness and love saves and delivers His people.

The recordings throughout Psalms and the entire Word of God also show how rebellion destroyed people and nations.

There is no real need to say “God Bless America”; He has done already done that. What we need to do is be thankful for all He has done, will do, then  “Bless God” with our reverence and love for Him. He will take of everything else once we do. 

"...if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:13-15  Personally, and I believe most people want to see that for this great nation!

Let’s never forget those that have served and sacrificed for our liberty and freedom. Let’s honor and serve the God that has done everything to give us liberty, freedom and LIFE through the Lord Jesus Christ!

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord...” 
Psalm 33:12

Have an amazing 4th of July!

This message is so pertinent today, isn't it? We really are a blessed nation. I pray we as a country put the One Who made it possible to have such freedoms back into His rightful place.

Btw, I want to thank you for the card for when my dad died. I feel like a (mostly) normal person again, but it took awhile. Hope all is well with you, my dear. I saw that you moved again?
