Your heart shall rejoice
Pledging our allegiance to the cross of Christ does sign and seal us for the era of prosperity that Isaiah prophesied. God’s power, and not our own, will bring evil to defeat and rescue the just. Though we die, we will not ultimately be harmed. Our bodies are marked with the cross, while our names are written in heaven. As Paul says, “Peace and mercy to all who follow the rule!”

We are blessed
This land is a favored patch of Earth. “From the mountains, to the prairies, to the oceans white with foam,” as Irving Berlin’s anthem goes, may God bless this place we call the United States of America. Berlin’s song is both patriotic and prayerful, which is why it’s sometimes sung in church. He originally wrote it for a play, then set it aside for 20 years, resurrecting it as the Third Reich came to power and the world needed an inspirational song. (Woody Guthrie didn’t like it and wrote “This Land is Your Land” in response.) However you choose to sing it, croon a song of gratitude for your country.

I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with their freedom.
