Sunday Reflection...

Yesterday our nation celebrated its 239th birthday.  On July 4, 1776 the 13 American colonies declared their independence from Great Britain, and severed political connections. 

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD..."  [Psalm 33:12a]

For the Christian, July 4th and every day is 'Dependence Day', acknowledging our true freedom and help comes from our Heavenly Father, and Sovereign Lord.

In a world of financial instability, terrorism, and rampant crime, a sense of helplessness and discouragement could easily prevail, but "My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth."  [Psalm 121:2] I wouldn't want to live a single day without God's presence in my life, and thankfully because of Jesus, I don't have to.  

You're the Lord of this nation
You're the Light in this darkness
You're the Hope to the hopeless
You're the Peace to the restless
There is no one like our God!
[Lyrics by Chris Tomlin]

May God  bless your week!
