America, we have lost our purpose

Do we really realize just how good we have it. I was talking with a friend of mine today, and she reminded me of something that i know, but have lost sight of.
With today's failing markets all around us, people every where are loosing hope. Why is it that we live in what most call the most amazing country, yet so many of us feel trapped by our surroundings. I love America, I love the pureness and the opportunities that await so many of us. The problem is not failed government, or lost jobs, the problem is people have lost sight of what really matters.
In the end, its not about saving our planet, if you read the end of the book, it burns up! While there are areas that we can improve on, its not our saving grace. Its not about finding a solution to our Government. While we all know, our great US of A has many issues, they are not the real problem.
The real problem is people have lost who the really are. People have lost sight of what our purpose really is.
I always grew up in church, but over the past eight years have grown closer to God than I ever knew was possible. I can never imagine my life without him. I have walked many roads in my life, some I would never ever want to walk again, but am thankful that through them all, I have had a loving God who cared enough for me to send His Son to be my knight and shining armor. I know it’s weird to say that, but it’s true! The love that was shed at Calvary was the most amazing Love one person can give to another, and I hope I spend the rest of my life doing all I can to give that Love to those around me!
So while times may be hard, people are truly hurting, lets remember to give them the one true hope. Its Jesus! If we would rise up and realize the authority, the power and the peace that we can have in Him. No matter what happens, if we have Him, we have something that the world cant give and it cant give it away!
I pray for all of you out there. I pray that you find the peace, the authority and the Power in His word. One thing Americans have been good at, is in times of trouble, we some how find our way back to the Bible. I pray that in your time of hardship, that you find your way back to the savior. And that you remember that what was done on Calvary was done for you!
