9 11 – we will never forget.

Today, we remember the events that unfolded 20 years ago, on September 11, 2001.

We remember the bravery on display as firefighters rushed in to help those in distress.

We remember watching in horror as so many individuals fell or leaped to their deaths as they faced a horrible decision to stay inside this burning building or fall to their deaths. 

We watched in disbelief as so many of our citizens lost their lives that day. 

We looked on in utter pain and anguish as so many people staggered out of those buildings with life-changing injuries. 

We watched in horror as one at a time, one tower collapsed. Then the other collapsed from the intense heat of jet engine fuel.

We cried out to God as we wondered why this was happening. 

We prayed in unison as we asked God to help all those innocent people. 

Today, we remember, but perhaps the question we should ask is how can we ever forget? 

This event was meant to destroy America, but it had the opposite effect.

In the days following this horrific event, our country came together in unity and love. 

We came together in love for one another and for our beloved America. 

How ironic that today as we reflect, there are forces at work trying to tear America and Its citizens apart again. 

Today, there are those using racism and hate to divide our country and all our countrymen. 

We did not let our house divide then, and we cannot let it divide now. 

God’s word tells us that a house divided on itself, cannot stand (Mark 3:25)

https://biblehub.com/mark/3-25.htm

We must refuse all those pushing division, hate, anger, and racism on us. 

We must tell them to flat out that we will not accept their lies and dishonesty.

Today, let us embrace that camaraderie that we held back on September 11, 2001. Today, let us reignite that love and passion for America. 

Most of all, let us return to God and reignite a fire and love for Him again.

He is and will always be the foundation of America. 

America was built on Him and His strong foundation of truth, justice, love, honor, and bravery.

Yes, America is not perfect, but we search to be and do better tomorrow and all the tomorrows that follow with God’s grace. 

With God leading the way, America will never fail. She may falter, but America will rise again to shine brighter than ever. 

America will lead the way again. 

We may have fallen to one knee, but the sleeping giant that is America will rise again to be more formidable than ever. 

America, don’t give up on God. Keep praying, keep fasting, keep declaring God’s victory over this evil that is trying to overtake America. 

God bless America!

God’s declaration of independence – America will remain the land of the free.

America is the home of the free because of the brave, courageous men and women of our military who choose to defend every citizen’s right to freedom.
The cost for this freedom isn’t free. There is a steep cost for those who choose to stand and defend it.
Our rights are given to each citizen by God, and they are defended and protected by men and women who boldly stand up and say, “yes, I will protect the land I love.”
Now at this very time, some in Congress are seeking to take our rights and freedoms away.
They seek to eliminate our right to bear arms and defend what is precious to us. Many of us have worked very hard to make strides to improve the lives of our families. Yet, our ability to defend these most precious things is being chipped away by those who swore or affirmed to protect those very rights.
Many of us, including myself, have been silenced by these officials with the help of those in big tech. With the help of those in big tech, our voices are being silenced. Our right to freely speak is also being chipped away.
These elected officials stood in front of all of us and placed their hand on God’s word as they promised to uphold, defend and honor our Constitution.
They swore or affirmed to God that they would fight to protect every American citizen and all of our rights. Yet, here they are going against that promise they made to God.
Any promise made to God is not one to enter into lightly. When we lay our hand on His word and speak, the words I affirm to uphold and protect, this is serious business. This promise is called a covenant made with God Almighty Himself.
God cannot break His promises, and any promise we make to Him is one we must hold up to.
We cannot easily break our promise to God. There are dire consequences when we go against promises we made to God.
Yet, these officials think nothing of breaking their solemn promises that they spoke to God to defend His nation and His people.
It seems that they have not paid those consequences, but that will not always be the case.
The goodness of God has allowed them time to repent and seek His forgiveness before His swift hand moves.
His mighty hand will move swiftly and quickly. His move is coming. Have no doubts about it.
Those that have doubled down on opposing Him will pay a very steep price.
America, God has heard us crying out for His justice. Don’t stop now.
Please do not give up now. Even though it appears that evil is about to win and overtake us, God will prevail.
Keep crying out to God to move and restore justice to us.
His move is coming, and it will take all our breath away. His justice will sweep through America and the world, carrying with it all those who laughed and mocked Him.
This independence day will take on a new meaning. It will always be remembered as the day God set us free from those who seek to destroy and keep us in the bondage of their greed and lust for evil.
Keep praying, keep fasting, keep seeking His might presence.
God bless each of you, and God bless America!
Happy Independence Day!

Happy father’s day.

Who is a father? A father is a leader for his family. A father is a provider. A father is the protector of his family. A father is supportive, loving, caring, and a great listener.
A father shows each of his children what they are worth. He establishes their strength with his affirming words.
Can any man be a father? No, unfortunately not. Any many can be a dad, but becoming a father takes hard work.
A father sticks it out in the good and in the difficult times.
A father shows his children how to work hard for what they want.
A father instills endurance in his children. He teaches them how never to quit.
A father wants only the very best for his children.
A father showers his children with gifts while enforcing the rules to ensure his children become productive adults.
A father must discipline his children to ensure they understand there are consequences when we break the rules.
A father establishes strength in his sons and develops values in his daughters.
Yes, becoming a great father takes work, but it is well worth all the effort.
Today, I wish every father a Happy father’s day.
I pray God gives you the wisdom, direction, strength, and endurance to raise a wonderful family.
Remember always to lay a strong foundation of God for your child will always return to that foundation (Prov22:6)

Happy Mothers Day.

MothersDay_5.10.20

Who are moms? Mother’s are the most loving, caring, unselfish people on this planet.
They fight relentlessly for their children to have the best of everything.
They want the children to have the best education, the best jobs, the best spouses, the best families, and the best futures.
A mother’s job is never finished.
A mother’s love is fearless. Mother’s give unselfishly. Mother’s work long hard hours to make sure their families have all their needs met.
Mother’s will go without food to ensure all their children are full and protected.
Mother’s will take on giants who oppose their children.
Mother’s are kind and gentle. They can also be tough and hard when needed. They dole out discipline in the name of love.
As God’s word tells us to love children, one must incorporate discipline (Proverbs 13:24).
Most of all, mothers love with a relentless passion.
Their love is the one that comforts us the most. It is felt in their hugs and kisses.
Their love is heard in their words as they tell us that everything will be fine.
In their loving embrace is the place we long to be during difficult and hard times.
Happy Mother’s Day. Moms, you have the toughest and sometimes the least appreciated job in the universe.
Today, we say thank you.
God, help us to love, cherish, appreciate, thank, and honor our moms every day of their lives.

Learn to savor each moment of your life.

happy-children-playing-WP7.20.19

Life passes so quickly. We watch as day by day goes by faster and faster.
We must learn to enjoy life. Each of us is only bestowed one gift of life and tomorrow is promised to no one.
We were meant to enjoy life. We were not intended to be bogged down with sadness, depression, illness, loneliness, emptiness, etc.
These types of burdens are too heavy for us to carry. God never created us to bear these burdens. That is why His word tells us to cast every burden onto Him(Psa55:22).
How do you go about getting every ounce of enjoyment out of every single day?
Approach and enjoy life like a child again. Soak in every moment of life, don’t rush through life’s experiences, and learn how to savor each moment of each experience.
Learn how to take in every sight and smell.
Take plenty of photos. Photos will allow you to go back through your pictures and relive every special moment in each experience.
As a child, do you remember lying in the grass and staring into the sky as you watched each cloud drifting in the sky?
Do you remember laying there trying to see what kinds of shapes the clouds were?
You didn’t rush through all those clouds. You didn’t lay there for 5 or 10 minutes. As a child, you would lay in the grass for hours.
Do you remember as a child watching ants march up and down their anthill?
You didn’t watch and examine them for 5 or 10 minutes. You laid there and watched them for an hour or two.
Loving and living in every moment is how we can find enjoyment in our lives again. Take the time to experience new things, soak them in, don’t rush through those experiences.
Life is too precious to be rushed through it. Savoring each moment helps extend your hours, days, weeks, and months.
That extension of time is beyond priceless.
