One Nation Under God
I will be glad when the Dr figures out what is causing my health issues. It is not fun to feel exhausteded all the time. I went from always being active to hardly feeling like doing anything on a daily basis. I get up and try to make myself do stuff some days, and my body literally trembles from exhaustion. It is really quite frustrating. You see the dishes and laundry piling up but literally don't have the energy or strength to do them. I am also a caregiver to my best friend/roommate. Some days it is all I can do to take care of both of our basic needs right now. I want to be active. This is so not like me. The person I normally am has to be told to sit down and be still. Stop working so hard, etc... Please pray for me for answers and healing. Today is kind of a frustrating day. I keep getting headaches too. I have a Dr appointment Friday. I have got my fingers crossed. 🤞

There are only 3 entries so far. I could use some more by the end of the month. I’d enter myself, but I can't judge my own poems. 🤠 Write about spring, St Patrick's Day, tornadoes, or rain.

I might write one for fun
Just to show you how it's done. 😉

Take UP Your Cross


Prompt:
Psalm 33:12
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

What does it mean for a nation to have God as their Lord? Does America or the nation you live in have God as the Lord? Why or why not? What can you do to promote or encourage God to be the Lord of your nation?

Answer:
When I go back and look at American history, I think there are some questionable actions on the part of the white people to call it fully Christian. When I was growing up, I was raised in a Christian home and went to Christian schools. I was taught that our country was a Christian country founded on Christianity. Now that I am an adult, I think the wool was pulled over some people’s eyes. Yes, Christians had a part in establishing this country, and there were many people who came to the “new” country to have freedom of religion. There were several that came to America to escape the prosecution of the Catholic Church. Hmm! Catholic is also classified as Christian religion. So I guess in a way, it depends on your definition of Christian.

I define a nation that has God as their Lord just as I would an individual except that a nation is composed of many individuals. To have God as your Lord, you obey his commandments. You love him and seek his will first in everything. According to this definition, sadly America is turning their back on God, and people wonder why the country is in the condition it is in.

To help point a country in the direction of making God their Lord, we have to begin within ourselves. Then we can pray for others and point others in the right direction.

Scripture writing - Hebrews 6:17-20


Scripture:
17 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath:
18 That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:
19 Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;
20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

Observations:
Verse 17- God was willing to show the heirs of the promise that his counsel is unchanging. He confirmed it with a promise.
Verse 18- Because of this, he confirmed his words by 2 unchangeable things. It is impossible for God to lie. He gave us strong comfort to those of us who fled to him for refuge for the hope of his promise.
Verse 19 - Jesus is our permanent anchor for our soul, sure and steadfast.
Verse 20- Jesus is our high priest and has set a good example for us.

Application:
God's counsel is wise and unchanging. God is does not lie. God is as sure and steadfast as a permanent anchor. He gives stong comfort to those who come to him with hope in his promises.

Prayer:
Dear heavenly Father,
Thank you for your good counsel. I am so glad I can always take refuge in you. You not only give a little comfort, you give strong comfort to those who hope in your promises. Always let me trust in you.
In Jesus’s mighty name I pray,
Amen

Prompt: in your opinion what is needed for a habit to form? How much time and what kind of work? Do you believe in those time constraints that say, it takes 21 days, or 3 months, or a full year to form a new habit?

I have always heard it takes about a month to form a habit. Of course, they say everything gets easier with time, but they don't specify how much time. My personal opinion is that it depends on the habit you are trying to form. Some are harder to stick with then others. Persistence is the key to forming new habits. You can’t just commit yourself to a short period of time. You have to stick with it for as long as it takes and set your mind to do so.

Write about angels today.

I believe in angels. That is the short version.😉 I really don't want to type out the long version, so I will see if I can end up somewhere in the middle. I have actually seen angels with my own eyes on more than one occasion. There are different types of angels and different ranks of angels. They each fulfill a specific purpose. Also, I want to point out that the Bible doesn't say we only have one Guardian Angel as popularly as it is believed. We have more then one. Psalms 91 says he will give his angels charge over there to keep there in all thy ways. Although, Psalm 34 says the angel of the Lord encamps around those that fear the Lord. These are all interesting thoughts. The study of angels is quite interesting.
