My Thoughts on Our Country

A lot has happened on the soil of this great nation.

We’ve had the early settlers to come to make a better life and for the freedom of religion. We’ve had the Revolutionary War, where men (and women) took a stand to fight to become a free nation, to have a government ran according to God’s Word.

We’ve been honored to have men with great minds like George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Henry Ford, The Wright Brothers. These men worked to make this nation great or to bring modernization to our country and the whole world.

We even went through the pains of slavery and the Civil War. A war that put brothers on the opposite sides of the line. We’ve watched the struggles of many people as they tried to make a better life for their children and grandchildren. *To be counted an equal*

These are just a few things that I think makes this nation great. We are not a perfect nation. We are far from it. The vote on the new Healthcare Reform Bill is proof of that.

You know, it is really heart breaking when you think about what our country used to be – A GOD FEARING NATION.

Over the years we’ve allowed people to persuade us to vote for a specific political party, instead of seeking God’s guidance in how our country should be led. We’ve been falling for the lies these men and women speak, just so another party member will not be voted in. We’re trusting these same deceitful people to teach our children in the government schools. (Take a look at all the problems that are running ramped in those hallways and classrooms.)

We’ve opened our homes to “Hollywood.” We’ve allowed a certain cute and funny television show to be played in our homes, for the innocent eyes and ears of our children to take in. We’ve allowed music in that is so degrading and graphic, music that would have been banned from the air 20 years ago.

We’re allowing our children to grow up and think that a “certain lifestyle” is a natural born gene, instead of teaching them the truth – It’s a SIN! It’s an Abomination to God!

It’s easy to repair a building when the crumbling is on the outside. But if the crumbling is on the inside, it is only a matter of time when the building will fall.

I’m afraid our nation is that building. The wall of fearing God has been crumbling on the outside since we won our independence. We have had many men and women willing to work and make the repairs on the outside. I see our nation crumbling from the inside. I’m not trying to prophecy here, I’m not smart enough for that. But I do know what I see.

We’ve allowed our jobs, over due bills, politics, television and carting our children around from one activity to another to take our eyes off God. We are spending our Sundays and Wednesday nights at the ball field instead of having our families under the preaching of God’s Word. Because of this we are allowing our daughters to dress “not so dressed.” They are being taught, “Do what you want. You are far better than settling to be a homemaker and a mommy.” They are being taught to be proud about being pregnant at 14. They are being taught to kill an innocent child ~ hide the evidence of indiscretion. We have stopped teaching our boys to be men. We’ve taken away their pocket knives, Tonka trucks, their guns, bows & arrows and replaced them with the idea that it is okay to dress like, talk like, and act like a female. (Even the Brawny paper towel commercial has softened up that lumberjack!)

Our nation faces many problems. We are dealing with nations that hate us for the stand that we have taken with Israel and on terr*rism. You know what? I’m not worried. I am more concerned about what is happening on the inside of our nation ~ And so should you!

America, We need to wake up! We need to take back control over our families – turn off the television and radio. We need to hold our leaders responsible for the actions that they make for us citizens. Refuse to hire the ones who are against the Bible. Fire the ones who don’t stand behind their word!

Have mercy on America, Lord.


  1. Your comment today is so right on- Last night we watched a DVD (from the public library) called America's Godly Heritage by David Barton of Wallbuilders. This DVD was produced in the early 1990's... Addressing the exact problems that are happening now in America. Yes, we've got to all be praying for this country and the leaders, it's urgent.

  2. I may not be from the USA, but we have already lost many battles in Canada as well. Like I read on a post earlier, God people need to get on their knees IF God will have mercy on our countries.

    On a lighter note: Alexander Graham Bell was a Canadian from Brantford, Ontario where the telephone was invented and the first long distance call was made. I tease my American hubby all the time about how America has slandered Canadian bacon (which is not just ham), stolen basketball (which was invented by a Canadian peach farmer) and they claim Alexander Graham Bell (who only had the invention patented in the US).

    Truth be told, Canada thought it was a silly invention and refused to patent it. (((head down in shame))) But still it was invented in Canada, I know, I grew up in the Telephone City, Brantford, ON and visited the Bell Homestead many, many times. LOL

  3. I do have to clarify my last comment or my husband will never forgive me. A.G. Bell was actually Scottish. His family moved to Brantford, Ontario when in his early twenties. He did reside in Boston and spent the summers in Canada for a time. But, he was in Brantford at his families' residence when the telephone was accidentally invented and the first long-distance call was actually between Brantford and Paris, Ontario (not France.) Because Canada was under British rule at the time, it was Great Britain NOT Canada that refused patent. Anyhoo, just thought I'd clear that up :-)

  4. Julie, I agree with the people praying. It's going to take a lot of it and people willing to stand up and fight this.

    You know, the Alexander Graham Bell thing is funny, since we are taught that he was from Scotland and was in Boston when he made the first phone call. I guess everybody wants to lay claim on him and his invention. :)

  5. Kimberly, Yesterday was really a sad day for America. I was listening to some of the commentaries that went on after the vote. I do not like this man - Al Sharpton actually said something that I agree with, "America voted for socialism when they voted for Obama." People allowed their emotions to lead them to vote for him, instead of researching the truth on this man. Because of this, our children and grandchildren are going to suffer, unless the Lord intervenes.

  6. We too were greatly saddened by the vote on Sunday, yesterday, our state ag, is one of those joining in the law suit of other state ag's. Our Governor, is very mad, I saw a quote from her, that said something to the affect of "who are you representing? because you aren't representing me!" - Well he is representing our household, for sure. I often feel we are on a sinking ship, the life boats all have holes and the life jackets are rotten, we slowly are taking on water, and their is only one way out- and that is through Jesus. He's shown mercy on this nation many, many times, one of these times He's going to be done and just let all the consequences have their ways. Hope that makes sense.

  7. Obama and his followers must think our constitution is worthless. They have definitely shown that they don't care for it or the citizens of this country. I'm just glad to know that when I lay down at night, I can sleep peacefully without a guilty conscience. They can't!
