30 Days of Thanksgiving (Day 6)

Thank You, Heavenly King, for the US of A.

We live on this amazing continent that is gorgeous and doesn't suffer from extreme temperatures.

We have luxuries at our disposal every single day that most in the rest of the world don't even dare to dream of.

We get to take our lazy bones to the nearest polling station in complete safety and exercise our paid-for right to vote.

And, believe it or not, we still have religious freedoms.

We have men and women who willingly give absolutely everything for us to have all of the above.

Thank you, past and present military, for everything.

Even though I am sorely disappointed in yesterday's results... (

...) I'm still eternally grateful for the freedom to vote. 

And even more so, I am grateful that I am not a citizen of this world but of heaven...

"For many walk... as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ." Philippians 3:18-20
Oh, and in case you hadn't heard:

"Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings." Daniel 2:20
President Obama was gifted 4 more years, not by the American people, but by God Himself. May he, through the fervent prayers of God's people, recognize that gift.
