I pledge allegiance to the flag –
But now we allow it to be stepped on, burned, disrespected, and touted as evil.
Of the United States of America –
But we are not united anymore. Lies and corruption and more lies told by those who should be trustworthy.
And to the Republic for which it stands –
But it does not stand any longer. The extremists of both liberals and conservatives have cut its throat. The officials have allowed greed and corruption to infiltrate every stronghold of the republic
One nation –
But we are not one nation. We are a group of people ruled over by those who believe we are not intelligent enough to make sound decisions while their decisions divide and destroy the American dream by annihilating freedom.
Under God –
But not according to those who kill, maim, and destroy anything in their way with hatred and power.
But we are divided. We have been infiltrated by the enemy. The trap has been set and the last warning has been given.
With liberty and justice for all.
But no longer for all. The unborn are being killed. The old are being allowed to die because they hold no purpose. The workers that built America are being exterminated one small business at a time. The farmers that feed the American people are being persecuted without thought to the final outcome. We are told we have no rights because the Constitution is old and outdated, but those who are wielding power have that power because of the Constitution. We are labeled as non-humans because we believe differently than the corrupt officials.
In a republic, the citizens have the power and elected officials are to yield to what they believe. We have been stripped of this. Officials expect the citizens to yield to their power and, to a large extent, that has become the norm. For how much longer?
Liberals and conservatives alike are on the verge of losing the freedoms that allowed us to be different and still have the freedoms that made American the envy of the entire world. We are expected to speak only what we are told, believe only what information we are fed, go only where we are allowed, eat only what they decide is good for us, and take vaccinations without proper testing because they are more intelligent than the general public of America. If the liberal people think they are exempt from any of the tyrannical rules that are being set in place, they fool themselves.
America is dying at the hands of the elected officials that we the people elected—and they don’t care. They have power because of the terror we have allowed to grow. We the people made them rich, and when they get rid of us they will be made poor.
So, what do we as Americans and Jesus followers do as we see this inexplicable thing happening?
Take all of the concerns we have, all the fears, all the lack and loss, all the changes, all the regulations that allow us to be free to worship as we wish, and give them to the God who holds the key.
Pray some more.
And be encouraged, for God has not left this earth.
Lay all our cares and worries of this earth down and pick up encouragement from the Lord. Pray the Word.
“You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted; You encourage them, and you listen to their cry, defending the fatherless and oppressed, so that mere earthly mortals will never again strike terror.” Psalm 10:17-18
The wicked plot evil – “They encourage each other in evil plans, they talk about hiding their snares; they say, “Who will see it?” They plot injustice and say, “We have devised a perfect plan!” But God will shoot them with His arrow; they will suddenly be struck down. He will turn their own tongues against them and bring them to ruin.” Psalm 64:5-8
Pray this against the evil ones – “Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against your magic charms with which you ensnare people like birds, and I will tear them from your arms; I will set free the people that you ensnare like birds. I will tear off your veils and save my people from your hands, and they will no longer fall prey to your power. Then you will know that I am the Lord…I will save my people from your hands. And then you will know that I am the Lord.”
America is not without guilt. Christians in America are not without guilt. We have turned our backs on the homeless and weak. We have allowed God to be taken out of public view. We have closed our eyes to the atrocities that happen daily. But we are not without hope.
“If at any time I (God) announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed, and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned….Look, I am preparing a disaster for you and devising a plan against you. So, turn from your evil ways, each one of you, and reform your ways and your actions.” Jeremiah 18:7-8
God is gracious. God is good. God is merciful. God is trustworthy. God is holy. God is also a God of truth and justice and ready to forgive His people.
Return, America, to God.
Return, America, to Him who can change the trajectory of this land.
Return, America, and be healed. Repent of our ungodly ways and hatred and turn back to the only hope we have, the only light in the dark, the only encouragement that our souls and our hearts seek.
In humble love – Kathy
