Happy Fourth of July

I hope you have a happy and safe Fourth of July! As I write this morning, it seems that as a country, we are in yet another season where we need to be able to endure and overcome some difficult times. We are in a season where more than ever we need to look to God and let Him lead us, guide us and help us so that we may persevere, as individuals and as a nation. Our nation proudly proclaims the ideals that “all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” And while those ideals are expressed by our nation, they are not always experienced in our nation. My hope and my prayer for our country is that each of us will look to God and the precepts of His word so that we can do a better job of proclaiming and practicing these ideals. My hope and my prayer is that everyone would embrace and experience the truth that all men are indeed created equal and endowed by their Creator with the God-given rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. May God bless America.

About pastorpstephens

I have been blessed to have served as a pastor, a chaplain and to have been involved in other ministries throughout the years. My wife Marta and I have been blessed with a wonderful family that includes our daughter, her husband and their two daughters and our son and his wife and their son. Each of them are very special to us so please keep them all in your prayers. One truth that I always try to share with people I meet is that anything God asks you to do, He will help you to do. God has your back.
