"But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ."
Philippians 3:20
"We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God.”
1 Corinthians 5:20

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. In a few weeks we would normally be celebrating the 4th of July with many others who are grateful for the USA. Because of COVID19 we will not be able to do that in the community where I live. We are certainly not a perfect country and our government has passed numerous laws that are inconsistent with God and His Kingdom. The focus is currently on many injustices that have taken place in our country from its foundation and I hope and pray that they are addressed. Nevertheless, having traveled to many nations around the world and witnessed poverty, chaos and corruption, 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.
