“Happy Thanksgiving!” to everyone!
Blessed Beyond Measure
I would like to take just a moment to consider how incredibly blessed we have been in this country.
Despite all the problems we have, there is no other place I would rather live than in the United States. There is no other country that comes close when comparing all the things that God has given to us here.
All of our lives and all of our destinies are in the hands of Almighty God. At our best and at our worst, it is in Him that “we live and move and have our being“.
We are foolish to think that somehow leaders can usher in a new age of Progressivism in our country. Where biblical values and biblical truth will become secondary or be put aside altogether.
Where Constitutional laws, based upon biblical truth, will be exchanged in pursuit of a Utopian fantasy based on Humanism.
By Mercy Alone
We live only by the mercy of God. We will continue to live only by the mercy of God.
There is no other way.
We live based on His goodness to us and not on anything that we deserve.
If we ever forget that, all the good that we have ever known in America will be lost.
Thank you, Lord, for all that you are, for the salvation that is in your Son, and for your goodness which you have shown to this country since the days when the pilgrims first landed upon these shores!
“O beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years. Thine alabaster cities gleam, undimmed by human tears! America! America! God mend thine every flaw, confirm thy soul in self-control, thy liberty in law.”
Taken from the song, “O Beautiful for Spacious Skies” Words by: Katherine Lee Bates, 1893. Music by: Samuel Augustus Ward, 1882
