Blessed with Freedom


As we celebrate our Independence day, I can't help but reflect on the simple freedoms that we take for granted.

~The freedom to boldly and openly serve our God
~to be able to worship and praise Him
~to be able to share about who He is and what He has done for us on the cross
~to be able to marry who ever I choose
~to be able to have as many children as the Lord gives
~to be able to raise my children knowing God
~to be able to homeschool them
~to have freedom of speech
~to have freedom of morals and values
~to have freedom of religion
~to have the freedom to choose my occupation
~to live in a country where our freedom's influence who we are
~to live in a country where we have faithful service men & women who sacrifice EVERYTHING so the we can have those freedoms...THANK YOU FOR GIVING YOUR VERY LIVES TO PROTECT OUR my babies can be safe...with a gratitude that I can't even put into words....THANK YOU!!!!!

Lord, thank you for the blessing to live in such a country. I ask, Father, that this nation will bow their knees to you and surrender their lives. That we will finally truly become one nation of God! We need you, Lord!!!

What freedoms are you thankful for? Please leave me a comment...

Pray for China Bands

Check out these neat prayer bands. I will send one of these bracelets to the first person that will commit to praying for China and lists what they will specifically pray for in my comments section of this post :) CALLING ALL PRAYER WARRIORS!! (okay, so Cheri beat you all to it...but please keep posting your commitment to pray)

From Voice of the Martyrs: China Olympic prayer bands are a great way to remind us to pray for Christians in China. Wear them during the Olympics and pray for your persecuted family. I already ordered ours :) Thank you, Julee, for sharing these with me!
1 Thessalonians 5:17~...pray without ceasing.
James 5:16b~The effective, FERVENT prayer of a righteous man avails much.
