Sometimes It feels to me like the America that I knew as a child doesn't exist anymore. We were once the mightiest nation on earth. We were a world power, we were a world leader. Other nations dreamed of being like the U.S.
We loved our country. We respected our government. People had good morals and went to church as a family. If you gave your word, it meant something. A handshake meant something. A family could live well on one income. Families defended each other.
What on earth happened? What happened to our values? What happened to our economy? What happened to our families?
You can blame the government, the woman's lib movement, the stock market or whatever, but what it comes to is our failure to obey the Lord's laws and commands. We are no longer a God fearing country. We do not go to church as a family or otherwise.
We can argue and debate for days and weeks as to why and how this happened but what would it solve?
Start today, with yourself and your own family. Turn back to The Lord. Live His laws and commands. Be joyful in your choice. Maybe, one family at a time we can get our land back to God.
Otherwise, I hate to see where we are 25 years from now.
Know therefore today, and take it to your heart, that the Lord, He is God in heaven above and on the earth below; there is no other. So you shall keep His statutes and His commandments which I am giving you today, that it may go well with you and with your children after you, and that you may live long on the land which the Lord your God is giving you for all time." (Deuteronomy 4:39, 40 NASB)
