There is Beauty

There is beauty
Despite foul political winds
There is beauty
Removed from others selfish ends
There is beauty
When things don’t go our way
There is beauty
Even on our darkest day
There is beauty
When it all seems lost
There is beauty
When we can’t count the cost
There is beauty
Inherent in the cycles of life
There is beauty
Within days of challenge and strife.

Days like today, perhaps?

The beauty is there
If we will only look.

God bless America…

God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.

Our Father and Our God, we praise You for Your goodness to our nation, giving us blessings far beyond what we deserve. Yet we know all is not right with America. We deeply need a moral and spiritual renewal to help us meet the many problems we face. Convict us of sin. Help us to turn to You in repentance and faith. Set our feet on the path of Your righteousness and peace. We pray today for our nation’s leaders. Give them the wisdom to know what is right, and the courage to do it. You have said, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” May this be a new era for America, as we humble ourselves and acknowledge You alone as our Savior and Lord. This we pray in Your holy name, Amen. ~Billy Graham
