UNDER GOD???

UNDER GOD???

WHAT HAPPENED TO UNDER GOD?

I was eight years old the day I stepped foot on American ground.  My first impression of this great country was the evening lights peppered across the Los Angeles vicinity.  I had no idea as I sat there on my TWA flight, and watched the plane descend, what landing in America truly represented to my life.

Having been born in Cuba I experienced firsthand the destruction that communism and socialism brings to a nation and its people.  There isn’t a day that goes by that I am not grateful for the privilege it is to live in this great country.  It’s really upsetting to me when I hear people that live in America bad mouthing our nation.  And then I am reminded that the reason they can say whatever they want is because we live in a country that is free.

A country where opportunity awaits, and dreams come true.  Yes, America where freedom reigns.  Where we can speak our mind, and worship God freely.   America founded with God at the core.  We are a lighthouse!   A country drenched with ethnic diversity and culture.

What has made America so great?  FREEDOM!  And it is that very FREEDOM that is in danger.  May we never forget the cost of freedom, and that it is a gift from God.  The United States of America has prospered because God was at the center  –  of the establishing of this great country.   But, piece by piece this country has wavered from keeping God first, and the freedom’s we have enjoyed are slowly diminishing right before our eyes.

I can’t help but take what is happening to our country seriously because I have lived through this before.  The signs are rampant.  May God help America.  And may We the People do our part to protect and preserve the foundations of our country.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance. Psalm 33:12 NASB

Without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure. Ronald Reagan

If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.  Ronald Reagan

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.    Ronald Reagan

Just some thoughts from an American citizen who is so thankful and concerned for this country…HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

God Bless…
