Happy Independence Day!

Among all the weekend celebrations and vacations, I wonder just how many people really know why they are celebrating this day? The Declaration of Independence was officially adopted on July 4, 1776.
The Declaration of Independence is a symbol of our independence from Great Britain but also a commitment to certain ideals and ways of governing. It was agreed that all men were created equal by God and that those governing were to have only so much power and were to govern based on the wants of the people.
Our country has come so far left to what our forefathers had fought and bravely died for. Our government has forsaken the ideals and values the country was founded on, the government has decided to apply their power to all facets of our live and without permission. What happened to limited powers and based on the desires of the people? I keep coming back to the scripture 2 Chronicles 7:14, “if my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” Praying this daily as I see the United States as not the nation we once were.
Happy Birthday, America!
