"Let Freedom Ring"

"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."
2 Chronicles 7:14
First I'd like to say "Happy 4th of July!!" to everyone (or Independence Day). Secondly, I want to write a quick yet hopefully meaningful article.
This is on one of our calendars for this month. The verse is the one I listed above.

This is a close-up of the Statue of Liberty. In New York, she isn't built with a tear trailing down her face. Why? Well the French built and gave us this statue when we gave the credit to Jesus and had Him as the ultimate person in our lives (when America was first started was when this happened). "And they said 'That is hopeless! So we will walk according to our own plans, and we will everyone obey the dictates of his evil heart." (Jeremiah 18:12) Does that verse apply to America? Is it possible that maybe we're losing our freedom....???

This is my Lord, Savior and oh, so much more! He's waiting for America to open its' heart once more to Him and He will gladly come in! "Behold He comes, riding on the clouds, shining like the sun..."
You may be wondering what that has to do with tomorrow. July 4th, 1776, 56 people wrote the Declaration of Independence saying that we no longer would be under Britain's rule. These men sacrificed their lives, fortunes, families and more for Freedom. That's why we have the 4th of July. Without those men (many whom suffered for what they helped write) America would probably not be free! Let America remember to turn back to Jesus - the One who started America!!!!
You can find the Declaration of Independence here:
Happy 4th of July!
Adonai's daughter,
P.S - Also take time to thank those who have sacrificed their lives for the U.S.A. People like veterans (you can find everywhere!). Also thank and pray for the families who have lost sons/daughters so we can be free!!!!!!!!!!!!
