If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. If Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but he is finished! – Mark 3:24-26
Join me in prayer for our country. My spirit is heavy and I’m so weary of the widening chasm which is leading to hate and division in America! I just want to scream – STOP IT!!! Enough already. Am I the only one?
These tragedies are happening much too often. What fuels the fire of hate that leads to this end? What is the answer for the United States? What will it take to keep the United States… well – united?
I believe with my whole heart that Carman sang about the only hope to solve America’s problems nearly 20 years ago.
If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place. – 2 Chronicles 7:13-15
When will we listen? When will America humble itself as a nation before God?
The fact that this shooting happened makes me so sad, but that it happened in a church – a place that should have been safe… well, I can hardly wrap my mind around it!
Do I have the answers? No, but it’s my hope that America will seek God with a humble heart and ask Him to please heal our sick, immoral, divided, irreverent land. The Bible is not just a book – it’s the Word of God.

Let’s continue to read the instruction Book, pray and seek God together… 🙂
