In the United States of American it is July 4th weekend. This is a time
we celebrate our liberty and our freedom. Independence Day honors the
birthday of the United States of America and the adoption of the
Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. It's a day of picnics and
patriotic parades, a night of concerts and fireworks, and a reason to
fly the American flag.

In spite of our many differences we come together and proudly proclaim
to the world this weekend to "Let Freedom Reign." Over the past
235 years many men and women have given their lives so we can have this
special time to celebrate our Nation. I am so thankful for those who
have served and those who serve today to make this a reality.

I know in far too many circles God is being left out in our
conversations and our lives but as long as I have breath I will proclaim
"My God, How Great Thou Art."

The majority of Americans still cling to the hope we have in God. We
cling to his promises from the Bible that is a continual light on our

I am saddened that our leaders are yielding to the minority in our
Nation that want God left out of everything. I even read today that some
Chaplains in our military are not being allowed to have the freedom to
pray as their hearts dictate and prayers must be written and approved
leaving out words like God and Jesus.

Well folks I take my stand on this, I don't write prayers, I pray as
the spirit of God leads me. I will not yield to not using God in my
prayers and I will continue to pray in the name of Jesus. It is God who
has made us, if we are ashamed of our Creator and our Savior we are in
trouble. Even his chosen the children of Israel were forsaken when they
turned their backs on God Jehovah.

Now is not a good time to put God on the side line, we need him on the
front line if we hope to endure as a people and as a Nation. We are
blessed as a Nation and I desire God's blessings to continue. This
will only happen as we remember him.

Well, that's my thoughts for the day; I pray you "Keep on the
Firing Line" for God and continue to stand and "Let Freedom


"If we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our
sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. " 1John 1:9
