Be Still SONday

Last week I was driving through our small town and on my way to the post office I couldn’t help but notice this display of hats and flags.   I safely pulled into the driveway next to it so I could capture this amazing memorial to those lost in station 343 on 9-11-2001.  

As I sat capturing these photographs, my heart was reminded of all those who lost loved ones and all I could do was pray.   The SONshine was so warm on my face.  I turned my eyes up to God and thanked Him for every man and woman who is protecting us today – sacrificing their lives for ours. 

John 17:3  says, “Now this is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.”

Romans 8:38-39 says, “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 5:8 says, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

I love the book of Romans and the deep truths shared within its pages.  I’m thankful that the gift of eternal life has nothing to do with me.  I’m thankful that Jesus willingly gave His life for each of us – a gift NONE of us deserve.   To the world we seem so insignificant – yet to God we are extremely significant.   The thought of that leaves me in awe of how much He loves me (us). 

With that thought I pray this song that has been ministering to my heart this week blesses you too…

GOD BLESS THIS COUNTRY and PLEASE HAVE MERCY ON US LORD!
