Bless These United States ~

Lord, Bless these United States,
bring about Your peace
let Your love shine bright
long past this lit up night.

When the celebration’s over,
and the sky once more turns dark
I pray that in the morning light
this country will be contrite.

Let us once again become,
a nation that is under God
let this day of freedom’s right
bring back Your heart’s delight.

This once great Godly nation,
can change its course today
so, I pray that You’ll incite
a return to You tonight!

~~~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people,
which are called by my name,

shall humble themselves,
and pray,

and seek my face,
and turn from their wicked ways;

then will I hear
from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,

and will heal their land.”

Satan’s Holiday!

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

I don’t like Halloween,
I believe it’s Satin’s parade
and for all of his victims
my heart is very afraid.

I watch witches and vampires,
march up to my front door
looking for some candy
but I want to give them more.

I want to tell them about Jesus,
and the sweetness of His grace
I want to wipe the bloody smiles
from their evil-looking face.

I want to share God’s goodness,
give them a taste of heaven above
I want to reveal Satan’s tricks
and tell them about God’s love.

I don’t like Halloween,
for I know it’s Satan’s holiday
and I pray tonight from him
I can turn ~ all of them away!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Acts 26:18
King James Version

“To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light,
and from the power of Satan unto God,
that they may receive forgiveness of sins,
and inheritance among them which are sanctified
by faith that is in me.”

True Independence ~

American Flag by Matt Gruber free photo Creastionswap

There once was a flag that flew high,
now it’s draped on freedoms grave
it once stood for the love of God
and the home of the faithful and brave.

In the wind, it waved in all its glory,
shedding hope and peace, in God’s light
the stars would sparkle ever so brightly
and gave confidence long into the night.

It sung of a song that we would flourish,
as it twisted and twirled in the wind
it claimed our trust and dependence
in God’s mercy, so our battles we’d win.

Now the flag of our liberty is no more,
for they have ripped ~ God from the seam
and the stars and stripes we have known
no longer stand for the american dream.

There once was a flag that flew high,
and God’s strength was its banners goal
now it flies in a state of true independence
for God is no longer ~ this countries soul!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I pray God will have mercy on our country.
That He will turn us back to Him. I pray the leaders
will not continue in the direction they are leading us
and for all to put their trusts back into God. Amen!

~ Happy Dependence Day in God ~


If We the People . . .

AMERICA THE LAND THAT FORGOT FREE PHOTO BY PAULE PATTERSON #3234

If we the people,
of the USA . . .
would humble ourselves
and pray.

Then God would,
forgive us our sin
and bless these states
once again.

If we the people,
were to seek His face
and admit to Him
our sinful disgrace.

Then God would,
heal our land
and united – under Him
we would again stand.

If we the people,
would repledge our trust
and see that His laws
are fair and just.

Then God would,
give us a new start
and restore to Him
our nation’s heart.

If we the people,
of the USA . . .
would only – be humble
and pray!

~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 7:14
King James Version

“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.”

Mommy’s Sweet Little Sheep

Mother's Day by Brandon Johnson free -photo # 5824

Demands knocking on the door,
in the early morning hours . . .
needing drinks, something to eat
zapping mommy’s sleep and power.

Toasting, pouring, filling cups,
hungry baby begins to scream
washer started, dryer going, folding never!
Welcome to mommy’s daily chaotic theme.

Feeling tired, needing coffee,
breakfast strewed across the kitchen floor
little boys jumping, running, shrieking . . .
naked out the front room door!

Washing, scrubbing, water running,
dishes piling high ~ higher in the sink
dirty diapers, dirty hampers, dirty hands
mommy’s sanity always tested to the brink.

Shopping, stopping, going crazy,
with three little rascals in mommy’s tow
fighting, crying, yelling ~ Silence Now!
Mommy’s temper starts to boil and blow.

Stashing, storing, putting away,
lunchtime madness nearly here . . .
paying bills, wiping spills
nap time cries ~ mommy prays to hear.

Dinner planning, making, baking,
playtime promises, park time bliss
running, jumping, falling down
two little knees that need mommy’s kiss.

Daddy working, coming home soon,
six little feet ~ eagerly wait to greet
act as if they’ve not been a problem
for daddy they are ~ angle sweet.

Daddy’s home, gives out love and hugs,
asks mommy dear ~ how was her day
wild, crazy, frantic, hectic . . . . name it!
Daddy knows he best, stay out of her way.

Three little roaring, howling tigers,
now sleeping like sweet little sheep
mommy thanks God for her blessings . . .
and for the peace and quiet while they sleep!

Bible Prophecy, Christian News. Salvation is not in our hands. Only Jesus Christ can save. John 14:6 "Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." Also Acts 4:12 "And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Only Jesus can save! Yet not I, but through Christ in me
