Can We Say, We Are Still America Strong?

Can We Say, We Are Still America Strong?

A poem/reflection I wrote is after the devotional…

America has lost its innocence.

After Pearl Harbor was attacked on December 7, 1941, the country of Japan knew that they had made a mistake. The Emperor of Japan said,” I am afraid that we have awakened a sleeping giant.”

Then on September 22, 2001 America was brutally attacked once more, thousands of lives changed that day, but again America stood strong. The sleeping giant had been awakened, again. America pulled together and fought to rebuild America.

I remember studying in History that in 1956 Russia’s Communist leader Nikita Khrushchev said, “We will take America without firing a shot. We do not have to invade the U.S. ‘We will destroy you from within….’ I distinctly remember reading this statement and prayed it would never happen, but it is taking place this very moment. Yes, now I am horrified to see Khrushchev’s words coming true.

We must seek God and His ways. The Bible says that we are held accountable for our treatment of our brothers and sisters (blood and spiritual). God expects us to demonstrate a forgiving and expressive love to those who have wronged us.

Romans 12:19-21 “Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay”, says the Lord. “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him drink; for in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

Genesis 4:9, when Cain killed Abel, God cursed Cain for what he had done. God will take of our enemies if we will follow in His path of righteousness.

We also need to stop and think about America. Are we as Americans following the path of righteousness? Are we living a godly life?

2 Chronicles 7:14 “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

Jeremiah 24:6-7 “For I will set my eyes on them for good, and I will bring them back to this land; I will build them and not pull them down; and I will plant them and not pluck them up. Then I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the Lord; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God, for they shall return to Me with their whole heart.”

The enemies that attacked America will be found and punishment given. The American government will seek vengeance on them. And God will also stand up and protect His children, when we allow Him too.

But what about America, as a Nation killing each other. Fighting among ourselves. Murdering babies in the wombs of their mothers to murdering each other on the streets.

Americans, we need to return to God. Then God will protect us from our enemies and take care of their punishments.

God will also take care of people that are being trained and placed to destroy us within our very on borders. Yes, Americans destroying our America…without a shot being fired by another country.

We need to make sure that we personally know God as our personal Savior. In the Bible we read about the things to come. Wars and rumors of wars. Fathers against sons. Daughters against mothers. In other words family against family. Friends against friends.

We just need to make sure we are ready to meet God when He gets ready to call us home.

We as a Country, needs to repent so God can restore and we can rebuild our Nation….”One Nation Under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”,

What do you personally and we as Americans choose today?

The Flag

As I look at the American flag through my classroom window do I really see freedom? I see red stripes that stand for the blood that was lost in wars to give me my freedom. I look at the blue field that is the foundation of the stars, which stand for loyalty to our country, and I see white stripes in which stands for purity and a sinless country. The stars are shining states leading the world in peace, yes freedom.
But then behind a cloudy glaze I see something else. I see fifty stars not shining so bright. America has lost its shine.

We have more violence than any other country its size in the world. Our schoolyards are full of guns and violence and bloodshed, not blood shed in freedom, but in violence. Even with our unlimited technology and our great scientific minds we have nearly half of our children graduating school with a below level I.Q. Could all this be happening to our children because we have allowed discipline, prayer and the Bible to be removed from our homes and schools?

Our fore Fathers fought and shed their blood so we could have freedom. Was it all in vain?

So now as I look at the red stripes, they are getting redder with the blood of our children, it makes me want to cry. When I look at the white stripes I see drugs, pornography, killings, babies having babies, rape, incest, racism and hatred.

Yes a country that is not sinless. I see so much sin that the white stars are slowly fading into a dingy yellow. And the blue field holding the stars the foundation is starting to lose its strength and does not stand for loyalty anymore. People are fighting each other. And for a certain dollar amount you can have someone murdered who gets in your way. People are only so called loyal to themselves. Not to any one else and not to their country. Everyone is doing his or her own thing. No one works together anymore.

Where is the loyalty in American? And where is that freedom as Old Glory waves high in the sky her head bowed low in shame. American lets stand up and take America back for our children. Let us stop anyone who stands in our way of freedom, whether it be freedom of speech, religion, life, liberty are the pursuit of happiness.

Lets tell the devil and every evil occult that tries to lead our children away that we will not let you kill our children. Parents reach down and grab your children from this horrible place we have allowed them to grow up. It is not to late for America.

Lets put the Bible, prayer and discipline back in our homes and schools. Parents begin at home by being an example to your children. Let them know they can live in a wonderful place and can succeed and grow and that there is a better way of life. A place that they will not have to be afraid anymore. Tell them about the once lost America. Then they can stand up proudly and say, I am an American. I will fight for my country. I want my freedom and rights back and I will as my fore Fathers give my life to have it. Then as we say the words I Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, of the United States of American, and to the republic for which it stands. One nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all, Old Glory will again hold her head up and we can look up as she waves high in the sky and say I am Proud too be an American.
