We hear everyday how bad this nation is economically. How many people are without jobs. The numbers of people who are without health care. The crimes in the nation. These are bad, and some of it is down right evil.
Let us give some thought today for that in this country for which we ought to be grateful.
First of all let’s be grateful to our Creator who has allowed such a great nation even come to be. He has not only allowed it to be but put it in the hearts of the men and women who were inspired by His Spirit to be free from a tyrannical government. Men and women who risked there lives at sea, and in coming to a new land.
Let’s thank God our Savior for inspiring Liberty, freedom, and caring for others without government aid. Let’s be thankful for the men who have fought the enemy for these past 232 years to keep us free and at times helped give other nations freedom as well. Freedom is the gift of our Creator, inspired through hearts of men who give their lives as our Savior has said,
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13 (KJV)
And we have had many a soldier lay down their lives to protect and to keep us from the harm of the enemy. In the beginnings of this country soldiers were farmers, doctors, lawyers, blacksmiths, etc. who laid down their lives for their neighbors, families and friends. Many soldiers today come from such families. Thank you men and women of the United States of America who have risked life, limb, and economic status, for the freedom of the USA.
You may be one today who has found yourself without an income; had your home foreclosed on; and lost everything you had. Be grateful that you still live in the land of the free, the home of the brave; and take a bold step forward, and thank the Lord above for the gift of freedom. There is so much for which we can be grateful.
Family, friends, associates in the workplace, the air we breathe, the ground upon which we walk. There is no place on earth like the United States of America. Where else is there where people want to get, rather than get out of it.? Thank God for the struggle of immigration. Most of our families were immigrants who came here from Europe or some other place.
Health care is available to all. It is not free, nor should it be. Let’s be thankful for the doctors and nurses, and all medical personnel who work long days and nights just to provide health care to people who are in need. Thank you.
You can finish it from here. I pray that I have inspired you today to see some things for which to be thankful in this God blessed nation; even with all that is wrong within it. There are still some things that are right.
May God continue to bless America.
