"But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ."
Philippians 3:20

There are many forms of prayer that God has given me as I communicate with Him. One of them is an expression of gratefulness and truly I have much for which I am very grateful. I was blessed to have been born in the United States of America to wonderful parents in a supportive community.

We are certainly not a perfect country and our government has passed numerous laws that are inconsistent with God and His Kingdom. Today, the focus is currently on many injustices that have taken place in our country from its foundation and I hope and pray that they resolved.

But the greatest act of injustice happened when Jesus Christ was crucified. He was the only perfect human being who ever lived and yet, the wrong that was done to Him turned out to be the very thing we needed to be reconciled to God.

I have traveled to many nations around the world and witnessed poverty, chaos and corruption. We may have a lot of flaws but I can honestly say that I am grateful for the freedom and liberty I have as a citizen of this country.

However, I am even more grateful that God has made me a citizen of His Kingdom and it is as His Ambassador that I want to live the rest of my life.
