HE LIFTS US UP: One Nation, Under God is What We Were Called to Be

Originally posted on ChristianBlessings:

As I think about our country…
this scripture comes to me.
For even it has a calling…
to be what God wants it to be.
For from our beginning…
established many years ago…
with freedom of worship…
to spread God’s Word as we know.
For there are many countries…
who have never known God or His Son.
They still worship fake gods…
like stone idols and moons or the sun.
But there is an accountability…
when we know better and still sin…
especially turning from God…
despite knowing that His blessings could end.
For God called the USA…
to shine His Light across the lands…
bringing hope and shelter to many…
with protection from God’s Hands.
For One nation, under God…
is what we were called to be.
So let’s keep praying and repenting…
for the fulfillment of God’s plan for this country.

This is for the many who have suffered the turmoil and storms of abuse. I have felt the fear and the confusion that consumes us in these times. But I have also felt His Peace that surpasses all understanding in the midst of the storm. I pray that you each find it.

Waves of Peace…
like water to the shore…
is how His Presence feels…
leaving us desiring more.
For His Peace surpasses…
all we can understand…
like walking on water…
with a touch from His Hand. Continue reading

Like a Wrecking Ball

This is for the many who don’t even understand the destructive force of abuse, whether in verbal or physical attacks, or how victims get trapped in the cycle of abuse. But we need to remember that abuse is not what is experienced initially. It is the kindness that draws victims in until the abuse begins. But we can overcome these traumas!!

Like a wrecking ball…
is how abuse can be…
causing major havoc…
every where we see. Continue reading

Stair-steps of Abuse

Stair-steps of Abuse…
are always subtle at first.
Then as tolerance grows…
the abuse only gets worse.

For it starts with a word…
spoken in anger here and there.
And progresses to many…
where no words will be spared.

Then actions join the words…
progressing from verbal to physical abuse…
as the abuser expands boundaries…
with increasing ways to misuse. Continue reading

A Stairway to Heaven

the Hunt for Truth

 God is calling us to so much more than we know now!!

A stairway to Heaven…
flashed across my mind…
as I thought of our God…
and not wanting to be left behind.
And the thought continued…
with an invitation to climb…
for there is so much more…
but we have to seek to find.
And the stairs are high and many…
getting narrower by design…
and not easy to advance…
so many chose to stay behind. Continue reading
