Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

Sunday


There Was A Time We Weren't Ashamed Of God

There was a time in America, when the Bible was taught in the schools. The ten commandments were displayed, as “God’s set of rules.” There was a time in America, where the cross could be displayed. Even in public places, people came together and prayed. There was a time in America, there was no “church and state” separation. As people all across this country asked God to help this nation. There was a time in America, where people knew right from wrong. You could see it in the way they lived, and could here it in their song. There was a time in America where one was proud to be a Christian. One could take stand for holiness, without coming under “suspicion.” There was a time in America, when mom and dad were together… Now, any kind of a commitment to marriage seems lost forever There was a time in America, where many were proud of “tradition.” There seems to be a lack of any kind of “spiritual nutrition.” There was a time in America, where so many could proudly say; “I’m going to read the bible and go to church on Sunday.” This is the time for America, to wake up and try to understand. We need to seek God right now! All over this land! This is the time for America, to listen and begin to hear… The coming of our Lord is drawing ever so near! NOW is the time to seek the Lord, while he may be found! The word of God needs to be read in every city and town! Won’t you too seek God and listen to his voice today? Simply give him your heart and life… This could be YOUR day! By Jim Pemberton

  1. Great post. America's founders were overwhelmingly Christians, and you remind me to post on my blog soon about the book "The Book That Made America: How the Bible Formed Our Nation."

  3. I've never been heavy into religion. At times I felt my christian friends and acquaintances pushed their beliefs a little too much but always had respect for the them and the way they lived their lives. For the last few years it seems the Christian religion is being disrespected and I think that sad. I hope that their is a revival in the near future because I believe Christianity is a big reason why we've been able to hold our country together.I appreciate your post!

  5. Well said and so true! If my people, which are called by name, shall humble themselves and pray...
    God must still honour His Word!

  6. Amen. Our country is bickering over presidential candidates and instead we should be repenting and turning to God. I'm so glad that my hope is in Him! Have a blessed day.

  7. "I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church & State."
