The last couple of weeks, the Bible verse in this picture has been placed on my heart numerous times. This past week, alone, I’ve seen a friend post it on her facebook Wall and I saw it on a sign as I was driving.
I take that to mean I’m to focus on it. It’s a message from Him and He’s making sure I see it for a reason.
The Supreme Court ruling about Hobby Lobby, this week, pleased some and upset others. This post is not to start a controversial discussion about that topic.
Instead, it’s to help us remember that the USA was founded on Biblical principles. The instructions of 2 Chronicles 7:14 are very simple. I hope you will join me in following them as we celebrate our country’s birthday…and after.
It’s also to help us focus on the fact that we live in a country where we are allowed to have differing opinions. We don’t have to be afraid that not agreeing will cause our lives to end, as in some countries. However, there are those sacrificing much, including their lives, to protect those freedoms for us. We need to take time to remember them. Many will be missed as their families barbecue, have picnics and enjoy fireworks.
Enjoy the holiday and its meaning as you continue to turn to Him!
