Our God of Blessings

Count Your Blessings

Our God of Blessings

When we look at our lives,
We see all the time,
The blessings of God,
The blessings sublime.

It’s not that we expect them
Or know that for sure.
It’s those surprises He gives us,
For depression – a cure.

Now as we walk
Along His way,
The blessings on us,
They light up our day.

— Charles B. Mayes

Wake Up American Christians!

American FlagWake Up American Christians!

Over the years people,
From their countries flee,
To be in America –
Living free.

Our freedoms
Of religion and speech today
Are being quickly –
Taken away.

Did God leave America
Or America God?
No matter which way it went,
We need to repent.

Wake up American Christians!
To help save our freedoms.
There’s no place left to go
For the freedom we know.

— Charles B. Mayes

Are we becoming more like some other countries and them like us?  As we lose our freedoms, are others gaining more and more?  We can see the pattern, throughout history, when a country leaves God.

Our prayer must be that freedom increases in our country and in all others as we do a complete turn around in our own  lives.

True individual freedom comes only when we trust Jesus Christ for salvation from being a slave to wrongdoing (sin) against God.  “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed”.  [Holy Bible – John 8: 36 – NIV]
