Today is the 239th birthday of America. July 4, 1776 our founding Fathers signed our Declaration of Independence. Our nation was built on a Godly foundation. As an American I am proud of the principles on which our country was founded.
Yesterday while getting info for this post I reread our Declaration. It is a wonderful document. I know Thomas Jefferson along with many others spent many long hours agonizing to get it exactly right. I encourage you to take a few moment click the link to read and hear the Declaration of Independence.
The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence were some amazing men. They had a vision for us to have a free and Christ centered nation. Here is a clip that tells the stories behind the signers.
Many men fought and died so we could be a free people. I will forever be thankful for their unselfish sacrifices for freedom! I was moved to tears when I reflected on what freedom cost! Freedom is truly never free! Thank you if you have served our nation in our Military!
Today I wish the United State of America a Happy Birthday! I pray for mercy, grace and revival! We need to return to God! I leave you with this reminder.
2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
