This week marks 241 years since the United States officially became an independent nation. It began with only 13 states and an estimated 2.5 million people. Today America’s population is over 325 million making it the third most populated country in the world behind China and India. America has come a long way since its beginning. And she has been blessed by God, in great part because her founding was deeply rooted in Christian principles and values. There is no better way to succeed in any endeavor, whether it’s a business, a career, a marriage, raising children, and yes, forming a nation, than to heed the words and counsel of the Creator. And it is up to us to make sure our nation continues to do so. We pray for God to inspire, direct and guide those who are in leadership from the President on down to the city councils and county boards. God, continue to bless this nation and may your will be done in the United States of America!
