God Bless America

Today I am doing my part to remind others to Bless America. I was reminded by a fellow momys who was inspired by something she read. Anyway, the reference goes back to Deuteronomy 30:14-20

14"But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may observe it.

Choose Life
15 "See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity;
16 in that I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the LORD your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it.

17 "But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them,

18 I declare to you today that you shall surely perish. You will not prolong your days in the land where you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess it.

19 I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants,

20 by loving the LORD your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them."

As a kid my mother regularly reminded us of this and today I am passing it on. So here are the words to the song, "God Bless America" so that you not forget to ask God's blessing on our nation.

God bless America,
Land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Thru the night with the light from above;

From the mountains to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.

It is our duty to pray daily for the blessing of our nation. Let us stop tearing her down and raining curses on her. Words are life.
