Proud to be an American, even in the most upside down times

No matter which democracy we sit under I will always be proud to be an American. This will always be where I learned “In God we trust”!

I believe no matter who is President, Jesus is King. My husband and I went to a Brantley Gilbert concert Friday night.

Amazing, and so all American is all I can say. He had the crowd singing (which I teared up) “The Star Spangled Banner”, we chanted loudly “U.S.A”! He brought our military up on stage honoring them for serving our country . For 2 plus hours I felt the most sense of normalcy since the beginning of Covid, and our new compliance mandates.

I felt so dang proud to be an American! I will never forget what this country was founded on. I will never give up my rights, or freedoms that were created by the Constitution of the United Stated of America. I live in faith over fear! I will not fear, nor will I comply if it is me giving up my individual God given rights. So wait, are we not doing my body my choice anymore? 😂. Switched it up on us, the irony in it all. I don’t believe in abortion, just in case I confused matters. The before statement is what “they” always said. Now we don’t have that right! They choose when to give it, and then when to take it away. I will not comply, because this is just the beginning of what we are signing up for complying to.

We think these are hard times, we are just at the beginning of what our world will see. So no greater time to trust God, and say God take my will, and my life. Let me serve you in every way so I can be a light in a very dark world. Let me stand tall for the ones who have been muffled by fear! Proud to be an American let me stand up free to be me!

I am so happy we decided to throw away our masks for a night, and go live life in its fullest. It was so worth it just to be brought back to the fact that not all hope is lost, and there are still others just like me. Proud to be an American.

Make America God Again, no matter the outcome

Toby Mac

With emotions, and anticipations at an all time high today. I know tomorrow whom ever is our President I will be the same as I am today. I will continue to pray for the President of our country. Either way, it does not change that I will continue to pray daily. As well it certainly does not change my heart. It may change how I pray, and what I choose to pray for, it is that simple.

I know who I voted for, but either way my prayer for today is that we can “Make America God Again”! Amen! So as we all sit here wondering, what will be the outcome of what seems the most critical election in History, nothing has to change. God has ALL authority! He already knows the outcome. I myself am to stay near to Him, and continue on in prayer. Just like any other day, I did my honor as an American. I voted, and I take great pride in that. May we all take pride in The United States of America which was created by the hands of a great, and mighty God. Which was founded on “In God We Trust”.

Blessings to you all today. May we be loving, gentle, kind, compassionate, accepting, and a blessing in another’s life today!

Life is most defiantly 10% what happens, and 90% how we react to it. Make today be beautiful no matter what the outcome. Choose to be the difference.

I would encourage every person who loves this country to pray and to turn out by the millions to vote. Don’t just watch the news and be depressed. Stand up for America! Vote for leaders who love this country, defend the Constitution, and support law and order. Most importantly, pray.” Franklin Graham

God sustain this land, your country. You are the founding Father!

Stars and Stripes forever. Besty Ross you were clever. Your story my favorite by far back in grade school. You stitched the first flag with that of your hands with great pride
One country under God, I hold proud to. Yes we all have political views. Bashing our leader who took the oval office. How about pray for him! I can not take part in the political jargon. At face value, it takes away from our sea to shining seas. For God will forever reign over our land, in this truth I stand

So I hold my head up high no matter who takes oval office. I am an American through and through. We are from the home of the free, and the brave. We have more freedom than most do. Yet all you hear is grumbling all day through. Bashing, and talking bad about America, and its leaders. The land we should all be proud of. This land was made for you and me 

I hold on to my stars and stripes this day. Lord sustain us! If we are not independent who do we have to point the finger at, only ourselves. Because this land was founded on “In God We Trust”…Give back the allegiance do. No taking God out of our Country or schools. For He made this land for you and me, we should all be on bended knee

“In God We Trust, America the Beautiful, One Nation Under God, From Sea to Shining Sea.” This land was made for YOU and ME!

Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.” Romans 13:1

High mast as I give allegiance to Jesus my King..the breeze carries far for all to hear echoes of His Salvation

I give myself to you. I hold my hand upon my heart in allegiance to you God. My flag flies at high mast every day

I am a soldier in your army. I wake to sharpen my sword daily in your word. Seeping in the words, you gave as instructions for my life 

Making sure I wear the breast plate of righteousness. The belt of truth, shield of faith, helmet of salvation, and sword of the spirit

My feet are to be clothed too, “shod” with the gospel of peace. Comitting myself as a warrior brining back news of great triumph

I give myself to you. May my feet take me places they have not set print in. Proclaiming the victory of you, Jesus on the cross for none have to be lost

A victory that brings us peace, and a flag that never has to be hung half mast. May it hang high, and catch the breeze of peace. Making ruffled noises of songs of praise in Jesus’s name 

I give myself to you, each day. I can see if I am on my knees, and if I pray you will help me get through the day. In your word, I will find my sword. I will sharpen it daily

I hold my hand upon my heart in allegiance to you. My flag hangs high “shod” with my fleeting feet from the day. Peace, Victory, Good News proclaimed. Higher on the mast, let all hear from near and far the victory of our Lord Jesus sung through the breeze, at high mast higher even yet for all to see persnickety I chose not to be. For your allegiance is far greater than all the lefts voices in my ears. Yours rings clear

9/11/2001; I will never forget for we are the land of free, because of the brave. Jesus saves!

Ephesians 6:15 Having shod your feet the preparation of the gospel of peace

Little Church in Malden Stark White, strong it sits with God’s glory reigning over it…

Malden Washington, 80% of the city is gone. The church stands strong in all its glory, quite a story!

Family and friends being evacuated near, and far. Air quality looming over at its poorest. The Pacific Northwest has been set ablaze. From California to Washington State, this is just a taste as it has only just begun. Our world is spun

Panic sets as people/pets retreat to safety as 1000’s upon 1000’s of acres burn wild. Home after home, structure after structure sit a charcoaled mess. Memories go up in flames. Ash soaked streets. First responders tire. People’s hearts are deflated in this time. It has been quite relentless

Got a call text from a daughter, it reads “I tested positive.” This is the second of ours. Our hearts sink. She is autoimmune compromised. Yet none of this is coming as a surprise. It is the times we live in

Reading the plume air report for Portland knowing it reached a records worse, on its way here per the usual. All windows will have to be shut, and we will be shut ins ourselves until it passes over the valley our city is nestled in

As I sat here in prayer for our people, country, state, family, and friends. One picture on the news stands out so vivid. A small farming town of Malden about 30 miles east of us was caught off guard with the fires coming at them in 3 different directions. 80% of their city is gone. It literally is laying in ruins. Then as the news casters camera geared left from the wreckage, there it stood as white as could be. The city was black, and air was even blacker, yet there stood in all its beauty the town church. The contrast was glaring from dark to light as it stood stark white. It is now the building being used to house people in. So the government can try, and shut our churches down all they wish. This one still stands, and in God we trust. God makes the call, and this is His land. That church in all its glory still stands. It will be the most vital part of the uprise of the little farming town in Malden. God is writing Malden’s story

So I don’t fear, for the word of God is clear. No matter how much our world is spun. Now I will call my mom, who works at the largest hospital in all of Spokane. She sits right at the front desk, she has for 15 years been the first contact for people. Her stories in these perilous times, are almost deplorable. Woman sobbing inconsolably into her arms, and needing to pray with her as the chaplain is caught up with another in horror of their life

God rest the weary souls, and keep revealing how your story unfolds. Every knee shall bow, and you are stirring up your people. I will just keep looking up, and keep my eyes focused on the cross, and stay in prayer for those with great loss, and who are lost. Now is the time, all we have to do is turn on our television to see that our world is undone

I can’t wait to keep updated on the city of Malden, and that beautiful church rich with white. I will not keep you, God out of my sight. May your people unite, enough of this strife. Come together in love, grace, and mercy. People are grieving, hearts are screaming. People are crazed. They need the comfort of the cross, for there is the blanket of unconditional love. Faith moves mountains, and it can be as small as a mustard seed. I pray you all see what God wants you to see, hear what he wants you to hear, taste what he wants you taste. Don’t let another tear fall thinking it has gone to waist

A teardrop on earth summons the King of heaven. Charles R. Swindoll

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
