I am thankful today because of freedom. It’s not to be taken lightly, rather it is to be cherished, because so many people sacrificed so much, even their lives, just so we could celebrate our independence. What is concerning to me are the ones who see this day just as a holiday. I wonder if they even know what their elders went through just to give them the opportunity to have this blissful ignorance, for the sake of “worshiping the sun god,” as if going to the beach can even compare to lives lost for their right to go.
We still live in a free country, as of today, but for how long will we have liberty to worship freely, without government intervention? So, maybe I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know the one true living God, and he is the one I can trust with my life.
The time is running short; however, Jesus holds time in his hand, and we still have time to do something of value. Granted there will come a day when it will be the last second before, but no one knows the time or the hour that the Lord will return, so we must pray until, we must give, until; we must praise him, until; we must worship him, until; we must not lose our focus and hope which is eternal life.
We could let fear dictate our choices in life, but the Lord says that we can have peace in him, he has overcome the world.
John 16:33 “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
