Have you had your Joy Juice today! Keep celebrating and find joy in the freedoms that are ours.
The 4th of July has just passed….and some of us are still celebrating! Come to think of it, we should celebrate every day! We are blessed to live in the grand ole USA! Though we often complain about our “state of affairs”, we still have so much for which to be thankful. There are many freedoms that we enjoy in our country that others across the world could only dream of! Don’t you appreciate our men and women of the armed forces who continue to fight for that freedom?!
Let’s be reminded today to say a special prayer for the all the soldiers, both past and present, who willingly have put their lives in harm’s way because of their love for our country. Let’s pray for the families of those who have fathers, mothers, sons, daughters and other family members who are on foreign soil representing and fighting for America. Our freedom is a treasure and we don’t want to take it for granted. Neither do we want to let it slip away from us.
Let’s also pray for our country and our leadership...asking God to intervene and help our leaders to make wise decisions. 2 Chronicles 7:14 tells us clearly why we should pray:
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
Join me in celebration and prayer for our country.
