God bless the U.S.A.

A few short years ago bevies broke and the surging waters from Katrina swept through the town of Mardi Gras, leveling everything in their path.  The rebuilding in earnest began to restore that quarter to its former dark glory of sensuality and self-indulgence.

Is the carnival now truly over?

Is its captain standing in a dinghy off-shore, cowardly unwilling to stand on board as he watches the crippled ship, the vein of good fortune, tip over to her doom?

Is the Commander yelling and screaming at the captain, “I command you to get back on board, damn it!” and yet, the captain mumbles garbled excuses as he watches his personal imaginary kingdom die?

Are the stewards and crewmen of the ship inept at launching the lifeboats and saving the merry-makers who have spent themselves lavishly on pleasure and pride?

Are innocent people dieing from the world’s excess?

Has God given us the boot?

Is the Jester “Folly” leading the parade, standing at the top of the float banging silver painted cow bladders maniacally against the sides of his protective perch?  Laughing with disdain at all the merry party-goers lost in the lust of their evenings?

Does God speak in disaster?  Can we hear His voice?  Like the voice of the Commander in the captain’s ear.  Get back on board, Damn it!”  Can we hear Him cry out with earnestness, “Get back on board, Damn it!”

And yet all is not lost.  There is an Island, a safe haven, a “Lily” of the Valley near the Kingdom of God for all who cry out His name.

Lord Jesus, We implore you and beseech you to raise up a Patriot and a Captain for our beloved and blessed United States before all is lost.  A Patriot and Captain who will lead this country with Godly intention and servanthood.  A Captain who will not abandon the ship.  I pray this earnestly in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
