Remember the Sacred Sacrifices That Secured Our Liberty

Here in the United States, we have celebrations during the month of May. Are you ready to celebrate Memorial Day? When we visit cemeteries this time of year, there are flags that different people and organizations have put up in honor of those who have given their lives to win us the freedom we enjoy and prayerfully cherish. Have you ever given thought to what you are free to do in your daily life that someone was willing to die for? That alone is worth meditating on and thanking the Lord for those blessings. Let us keep our governmental leaders in our prayers that they fear the Lord and make wise, God-honoring decisions for all people.

There is a far greater freedom for all people. Jesus won that for us. Nearly 2,000 years ago, Jesus laid down His life to pay our sin debt in full. For those who choose to make Jesus their Lord and Savior, we have the freedom from guilt and condemnation. There is a joy in knowing God removes our sins as far as the east is from the west. He remembers our sins no more. Now, that is a freedom to celebrate every day! Praise the Lord! Can we live out that freedom in praising and magnifying the Lord every day? Can we recommend Jesus to others? We are blessed to be a blessing!

I want to extend my thanks to those who serve in the military. Thank you for your service and in defending our nation. For those of you who may have lost a loved one and have moments of grief in your heart, it is my prayer that Christian friends and family will join around you to comfort you. Please keep the good memories in your precious mind. I look forward to the day where I get to see my loved ones in heaven. Getting excited about seeing our loving and gracious Father very soon should inspire us to share Jesus in our daily lives. Lord, we pray for open doors and the wisdom of how to speak and act to share your love with others.

We have been digging into two of my books, Heaven Bound and Walking the Talk. I would like to invite you to spend some time with me in Bible Study. We will be diving into sharing Jesus with those around us as well as growing with the Lord. You can read along and listen to my recent episode of Loved Always on the Charisma Podcast Network. My website, lovedalways.net, has links to purchase each book. Bring along your Bible as it is the foundation for any book I write to help believers. There are countless Scriptures in these books. We will only be able to touch the surface within this framework. I would like to make sure you have great resources that help you in your journey with the great God we love, serve and worship.
