Yeah, I said it and I’ll go to my death with those words on my lips. What makes AMERICA exceptional is her people, not her government. We The People. Yes, there are those who are clueless, who are ‘asleep’, who choose to live life with “me, me, me” as their guiding force… and of course, there are those who are corrupt. But there always has been. From the dawn of time, there are reports in history of GREAT MEN (and women) doing what must be done, fighting the good fight. Whether it be fighting for justice, for the innocent, for whatever, it has always been a special section of society who stands up, reaches out and does not back down… ‘great men’ who will not be silent, even in a world of darkness, a world guided by evil, a world full of fallen sinners and a world full of the uneducated. What makes this time in America different, IMHO, is that due to laws on the books, the Hand of Protection from God has been removed. This is my opinion and there may be those who disagree with it, but when a nations laws directly contradict God’s Laws, how can one expect God to continue the special blessing of that nation? But I do not think that means we should give up… actually, I think it gives the people of God an even greater purpose! Look within your own bubble of life, when things are going easy, we tend to get caught up in ourselves and ride that comfortable tide… but when things get difficult, we turn to our Creator, we fall to our knees and seek His guidance, we remove our eyes from self and place them on The One who is able to deliver! So I consider this time in history, a call to action! Yes, America is EXCEPTIONAL… but only so, through you, through me, through the individual who chooses to not go quietly into that dark night, but stands tall and strong and continues the race, no matter how rough the terrain becomes. To the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, be honor, praise and glory forevermore! May each of us who are in Christ put on the full armor of God and may we continue to share the saving message of Salvation to those who are lost, AMEN!
