One Minute with God: For God, and Country
What a great nation we have been so privileged to inherit. The place where dreams become realities, and by hard work and toil the soil beneath our feet produce. The place where people would escape their needs, and risk it all to start anew. A place where freedom reigned, and where “God and Country” was a patriotic anthem.
America means the New World. A geographical place where you and I would venture to faithfully search, and set our eyes upon. A place where the unity of peoples and states formed our common bond and our shared possibilities were our responsibilities. A place where faith and determination was our driving force, and a “model of heaven” for the whole world to see.
Fellow Americans God has always had a plan for you, so don’t remove Him from your foundations. He is the one who refreshes your land with rain and causes your labor to flourish. He is the fire in your flaming torch and the light beneath your very feet. Return to God.
For God, and Country!
5“Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce. 6Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease.
7Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”
