United States of America
I worked in the fields this morning; I traveled your highways today. I used a creek and a rainbow for a roadmap, and a tree for a chapel to pray. It’s all because of You, Lord. I'm so proud to sing Your praises and to live in this land of the free. We are a nation born out of faith in God and we stay strong by the support of We-The-People. As God’s child, I’ll have a heavenly home someday but for now, my home-sweet-home is the good ol’ U-S-A.
Deuteronomy 28:1-3 – “And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe [and] to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: 2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God. 3 Blessed [shalt] thou [be] in the city, and blessed [shalt] thou [be] in the field.” John 8:31-36 – “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, [then] are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. 33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? 34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. 35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: [but] the Son abideth ever. 36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
Just as there’s freedom in Jesus, here in the USA we are free to think as we choose. Right or wrong, win or lose, our only limitation is ourselves. It is our duty to obey the laws and be a positive example and a productive, responsible citizen as well as be informed and concerned about our nation’s affairs. We voice our beliefs constructively and treat others like we would like to be treated. It’s the American way. Thank you to the red, white and blue -- we will do our best for you. And thanks be to God for placing us here in the United States of America!
