Happy Birthday USA!
This is the day when we are truly proud to be Americans! The day we gather together with family and friends, BBQ, swim, eat corn on the cob, and big juicy slices of watermelon, and ice cream! This is the day when all across America fireworks are sent high into the sky and burst with sound, light, and color, reminding us of our independence!
Independence from what? Independence from rules that keep us safe and protect others? Independent from work, where we earn the money necessary to live? Independent from sacrifice and making a choice that benefits others over ourselves? No! True independence and freedom to make our own choices and go our own way, came in 1776 when our forefathers forged the Bill of Rights, which governs America. When true independence was gained from a dictatorship, a King or Queen, or a socialistic government. Our forefathers gave us a Republic that allows us to govern ourselves. What we do with that right is up to us! Can we keep it? Do we have what it takes? Left to our own demise, our selfish nature takes over, and chaos soon takes place.
When we commit ourselves to God, and allow His love and His principals to govern our lives, then, and only then, do we find true FREEDOM!
“You my brothers (and sisters), were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature, rather, serve one another in love.” Galatians 5:13
True Freedom is found in God alone!
Jesus Christ paid the ultimate price for our freedom. He willingly went to the cross, suffered and died, and rose again, with once and for all victory over death! His act of selfless love, secured by freedom and yours! I can celebrate my freedom in Christ today, on the Fourth of July, and everyday because God loves me!
Today, I am proud to live in America where I am still afforded the freedom to say, “GOD BLESS AMERICA!”
May I never take that freedom for granted! May I always give glory and honor to my Lord Jesus Christ for purchasing my freedom and the World’s freedom. May I never grow weary or forget to thank those that have died to ensure my freedom in America, and those that are apart of our armed forces to continue to keep America free!
Today I will BBQ my hot dogs and hamburgers, I will grill my corn, I will slice my watermelon, and I will enjoy my ice cream with my family that I love so much! I will proudly wear my t-shirt that expresses my gratitude to my Lord and my country!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
Speak Truth Love
