Day 201, July 18

The news is full of the turmoil in Egypt. I admit to knowing very little about the uprising there. My heart aches for any people who are fighting for freedom, though.

It reminded me of our own country's fight for freedom. America was and is blessed by the Lord. He told us that America would always be great if we choose to follow Him. That is the promise. Along with that is another promise: that America will lose those blessings if we choose not to follow Him.

So, for today, I am grateful for the Lord's blessings upon America. I pray that we do not lose those blessings.

  1. One of the things that I am most grateful for in my life and repeatedly express my gratitude to the Lord is for this wonderful country that I have the privilege of living in and being born in.

    I can't even imagine what it is like in a lot of other parts of the world where the people aren't that lucky.
