And so, America has come to the end of the rainbow. Once the land of plenty and bursting with new opportunity, she now resembles a shell of her ghostly prosperous past.
Where did the road curve and break off to this extreme diversion? Or did it slowly move into our horizon year after year? Was the sun rise of our complacency, the sunset of our country? Did we replace God, one too many times, with agreeing nods, plugged ears, and shaded eyes?
As Americans, our focus became “self.” Freedom meant living our lives on our own terms, and not caring about the outcome. We greedily bore children into the land of the free and the home of the brave. Only to give them television, computers, and gaming devices as their substitute parents. Church, Sunday School, and Christian Fellowship was the place of man-made extremist rules. So we did other, more self satisfying activities.
Now, upon the forced evacuation of this fairy-tale, we are face to face with what we have sown. Our children, grand children, and great-grandchildren will bear our burden and may never know the real America!
So, what the devil did you expect would happen? Did you think the Mother Earth Fairy or the BudhaAlahaGod fairy god would wipe your nose, clean your butt, and make everything right again? Uh…hello…the alarm clock is ringing! Time to get out of the pity mud and do something!
For too long, we have put our dreams in cracked pots, and they have slowly leaked away. Our Government, is the prime example of “cracked pots” running things!
But, I know the sealant for these “cracked pots” and by the way, we are “cracked pots” too. You see, God uses “cracked pots” and even the broken pieces, to display His power and His love for us. In Corinthians, we are told what God can do with us, His jars of clay, if we turn to Him!
2 Corinthians 4:6-7
“For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”
God is waiting. He was there in the beginning and will be there past the end.
We must come together, cry out to God, and allow Him to show us how to create real change. Divisional lines and the blame game will send America to the dust. But, God can seal our cracks and fill us with Living Water! He can revive America!
