As dark and hopeless as our world looked last Thanksgiving Day things have turned around and there is much to be optimistic about and thankful for this year.
Counting our blessings is still easier here in America than in any other country. Even the poorest Americans eat meals many of the world’s citizens only dream about.
We have a Bill of Rights and a full Constitution to protect us thanks to our Founding Fathers. Because of the foresight of those great men, we have the legal and moral tools we need to prevail against even the worst tyrants. Other societies don’t have anything like our Bill of Rights and would never be “granted” one by their ruling classes.
America: One of God’s favored countries
America is clearly one of God’s favorite countries, so we will succeed in making things right again. The stunning fall from favor of Barack Obama and his Marxist Democrats is proof that the Hand of Providence has not forsaken us. God has not abandoned America, and for this blessing we must be grateful.
America is still the country the world’s people want to come to; she is still the country God has favored because we are His instrument for working His will.
We can now see undeniable signs that the ‘stand up and fight’ resolve we had last November is paying dividends. This swerve to the left is survivable because we are NOT a people attracted to socialism.
Our dark days are by no means fully behind us. The damage caused by putting a Marxist enemy of freedom in the White House is far from over. But as Churchill said: “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end, but it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”
By God’s grace we have plenty of food and clean water for healthy lives; we have a political system that allows us to regroup speak out and win converts to our ideas even in the face of the terrible beating we took last year. Our big victories on November 3 prove this. And we have a financial system that can survive this socialist assault.
We still have a long way to go but there is light in the end of the tunnel.
What have you done to defend American freedoms today?
