Taking a break from Friday Favorites to share this idea that Southern Melle is starting. I mean, its the 4th of July... the time we look at America & say, YAHOOO! Proud to be an American time... red, white & blue everywhere...
But mercy... what a time for America...
Times they are a changing.
We live in a country where people go into churches & shoot others with hopes of starting a race war....
We live in a country where decisions are being made by judges that redefine centuries of tradition...
We live in a country where politicians aren't trusted...
We live in a country where health insurance is a thorn in most peoples sides & doctors are limited to the access & care they are allowed to give...
We live in country where wild fires are out of control, destroying our land ...
We live in a country that seems so divided on so many issues & people take it to extremes in anger to try & force others to see how they see...
We live in a country where divorce is the norm & modesty is something that is hard to come by...
We live in a country where it seems certain freedoms are being slowly taken away...
We live in a country that is taking off the Dukes of Hazard because a wholesome show of the 70's is supposed to support hatred? WHAT?
... & we live in a world where Donald Trump is running for President.
(Though, can I say, I do like that Donald Trump has the guts to say exactly what he thinks. I may not agree with it all, but dude had guts to voice his opinion in a world where you get knocked in the face if you say anything that may offend someone else.)
It's almost like our country is a ticking time bomb waiting for the fuse to explode.
This is time, more then ever, where our country needs payer.
So this 4th of July, there's a movement to really lift up our country in prayer ... especially every day in July.
