While our country is experiencing many troubles and trials, which I believe is due to a turning away from the Lord, I try to keep my heart set on being thankful in the current circumstances that we are living through. While our country has been on a long road to bringing us where we currently are, giving up our freedoms through ignorance, and more and more erosion of our freedoms being put upon us, I can be grateful that we still have the freedom to assemble on public property and express our thoughts and our disagreement with the choices of our government. I was blessed by the friendly spirit of the police officers monitoring this event and who were moving about the capitol campus. I was grateful to see many people stopping to listen for a few minutes to see what was being said. While I am grateful for these things my prayer is for our nation to see it's wrong ways and turn back towards the Lord with a full repentance family by family.
Therefore, as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, overflowing with gratitude.
