A Quick Thought…

Encouragement for difficult times.

Life is not fair. From birth we are not promised a comfortable and easy life. Along the way, we will face adversity. Some of it will be our own doing and some of it will be through no fault of our own. I’m everything, God promises to be with us but Ge doesn’t promise to take away every difficulty. The apostle Paul uses his own life as an example of this.

“Concerning this I implored the Lord three times that it might leave me. And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.” (‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:8-10‬ ‭NASB‬‬)

How many times do we ask God to take away our problems? How many times has He answered with “no.” Paul asked for a burden to be lifted not once but three times, signifying his earnestness in seeking relief. Yet God still said “no,” not because He’s mean or wants to withhold deliverance from us for some vindictive purpose. God allows difficulty in our lives so that we can grow and mature; exposing our weakness and forcing us to rely on Him and His power. Paul was content to rely on God for strength to live with his difficulty and we must learn to do the same. Whether it’s physical, mental, spiritual, or any other situation or hardship, we must remember to rely on God first and foremost. “Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.”
‭‭(Psalms‬ ‭27:14‬ ‭NASB‬‬)When difficulty times come our way, the question we should ask is: what can I learn from this, not simply: when will this be over? Please be encouraged and remember that in every situation God is with us. In dark times and times of joy, He loves us and wants to see us grow and rely on Him.

Independence Day Quotes

July 4, 1776. We honor that day long ago, and yet not so long, when our forefathers were fighting and dying for freedom. The continental congress, as representatives of each new state, made the decision that those lives would be laid down for something greater: a new nation built upon the principle of liberty.

Let’s celebrate today not just as a holiday, but as a chance to reflect on those who sacrificed everything for the dream of an American nation founded on freedom of all people. Happy birthday to the United States of America!

Here are a few patriotic quotes to help us appreciate the freedoms we share as citizens of the United States of America.

“Humanity has won its battle. Liberty now has a country.” -Marquis de Lafayette

“Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” – John F. Kennedy

“He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from opposition; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach himself.” – Thomas Paine

“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” –
Thomas Jefferson

“Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.” -Abraham Lincoln

“Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of resistance.” -Woodrow Wilson

Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.” -Mark Twain

Prayer For America

“Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain.”
‭‭(Psalms‬ ‭127:1‬ ‭NASB‬‬)

Benjamin Franklin

Constitutional Convention Address on Prayer

(delivered Thursday, June 28, 1787, Philadelphia, PA)

Mr. President:

The small progress we have made after 4 or five weeks close attendance & continual reasonings with each other — our different sentiments on almost every question, several of the last producing as many noes as ays, is methinks a melancholy proof of the imperfection of the Human Understanding. We indeed seem to feel our own wont of political wisdom, since we have been running about in search of it. We have gone back to ancient history for models of government, and examined the different forms of those Republics which having been formed with the seeds of their own dissolution now no longer exist. And we have viewed Modern States all round Europe, but find none of their Constitutions suitable to our circumstances.

I have lived, Sir, a long time and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth — that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings that “except the Lord build they labor in vain that build it.” I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall be become a reproach and a bye word down to future age. And what is worse, mankind may hereafter this unfortunate instance, despair of establishing Governments by Human Wisdom, and leave it to chance, war, and conquest.

I therefore beg leave to move — that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessings on our deliberations, be held in this Assembly every morning before we proceed to business, and that one or more of the Clergy of this City be requested to officiate in that service.

If the founding father considered by most revisionist historians of being a secular deist believed in imploring Almighty God to guide and direct our nation, maybe we should reevaluate the arguments of the atheists to remove God from everything (government, school, etc)

“Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain.”

‭‭(Psalms‬ ‭127:1‬ ‭NASB‬‬)
