September 11th

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

We were a kinder people when God was our lawgiver. May America remember the blessings of the Lord.

September 11, 2001 was considered by many a judgement upon the nation. Yet, has daylight faded more since then? The actions and heroism that took place that day are legendary and will be passed down through the generations. Christians prayed and came together for help, and story after story tells of the chivalry that took place in rescuing those who could be.

Remember that God judges a nation as a people. May we turn back to the Lord and seek His salvation and help. “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14.

Happy Labor Day!

labor day2

This day, I will be spending getting caught up on some reading (here’s my list). Don’t waste the day on a computer screen! Get caught up with some reading. In fact, set aside some family reading time. Start with The Williams House! Purchase this book directly here: http://www.xulonpress.com/bookstore/bookdetail.php?PB_ISBN=9781498496216&HC_ISBN=. Listen to select chapters of this book read by me, the author, on my YouTube channel! Also, be watching for my book Treasure on the Southern Moor, which should be in print at most in a couple weeks. Find out the latest about this book here.

This is Joshua Reynolds saying, “Happy Labor Day!” May God richly bless your time with family and friends. Remember to glorify Him and edify the brethren in all you say, do, and think today.

Fireworks and Nehemiah

Hello everyone!

I have completed the edits for chapters 1-5 (sixteen chapters total) of my book Treasure on the Southern Moor and am ahead of the schedule I had made for myself to have the book published by September 1st. Please keep watching! I’ll be giving other updates.

Below is some footage of this year’s Fourth of July. My sister filmed part of the grand finale, and I thought the footage was captured really well (I was sitting right there)! The device I’ve been using to record new videos is temporarily out of commission, so I thought I would post this video.

 

Currently Reading in Bible

Please feel free to refer to my reading list for a more conclusive list on what I am referencing/reading. In my Scripture reading, I am nearly finished with Nehemiah and am on track to complete two read-throughs this year. Chapter 9 of Nehemiah gives a prayer of repentance, praise, and a commitment to follow the Lord. It is a wonderful psalm that points to the greatness of God and the mercy and justice that He holds.

You alone are the Lord;
You have made heaven,
The heaven of heavens, with all their host,
The earth and everything on it,
The seas and all that is in them,
And You preserve them all.
The host of heaven worships You.~Nehemiah 9:6

Happy Independence day!

4th-Of-July-Pictures-1

As George Washington once said:

“The Citizens of America, placed in the most enviable condition, as the sole Lords and Proprietors of a vast Tract of Continent, comprehending all the various soils and climates of the World, and abounding with all the necessaries and conveniencies of life, are now by the late satisfactory pacification, acknowledged to be possessed of absolute freedom and Independency; They are, from this period, to be considered as the Actors on a most conspicuous Theatre, which seems to be peculiarly designated by Providence for the display of human greatness and felicity; Here, they are not only surrounded with every thing which can contribute to the completion of private and domestic enjoyment, but Heaven has crowned all its other blessings, by giving a fairer oppertunity for political happiness, than any other Nation has ever been favored with. Nothing can illustrate these observations more forcibly, than a recollection of the happy conjuncture of times and circumstances, under which our Republic assumed its rank among the Nations; The foundation of our Empire was not laid in the gloomy age of Ignorance and Superstition, but at an Epocha when the rights of mankind were better understood and more clearly defined, than at any former period, the researches of the human mind, after social happiness, have been carried to a great extent, the Treasures of knowledge, acquired by the labours of Philosophers, Sages and Legislatures, through a long succession of years, are laid open for our use, and their collected wisdom may be happily applied in the Establishment of our forms of Government; the free cultivation of Letters, the unbounded extension of Commerce, the progressive refinement of Manners, the growing liberality of sentiment, and above all, the pure and benign light of Revelation, have had ameliorating influence on mankind and increased the blessings of Society. At this auspicious period, the United States came into existence as a Nation, and if their Citizens should not be completely free and happy, the fault will be intirely their own.”

There is light in our country still. “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” ~2 Chronicles 7:14
