Happy Independence Day (on the 4th-lol)!
As we remember our freedom in America and those who fought for it, let us also and more so remember our freedom in God and who He sent to lay down His life for us....Jesus Christ.
Thank you Jesus!
Let us also remember those who are in countries that are fighting everyday for the ability to worship and live for Christ. Though they're not free to worship in public, they're free to worship God in spirit. :)
So Father, we thank you for the opportunity to celebrate with our families, our independence and freedom. Thank you for blessing us to be able to worship you openly, in spirit and in truth. May we never take it for granted. And may we always pray for those who are being persecuted, tortured and killed on a regular basis because they take risks, by exercising their desire to worship and serve the Lord Jesus Christ.
We love you Father and we thank you for our freedom! We also anticipate Your coming! That's our ultimate Independence Day!! :) Thank you for that hope that will not cause us to be ashamed! We love you Jesus!
Be encouraged and keep looking up!
