One With God

My friend Sandi shared this cute story with me this morning:

A father wanted to read a magazine but was being bothered by his little girl, Shelby. She wanted to know what the United States looked like, he tore a sheet out of his new magazine on which was printed the map of the country. Tearing it into small pieces, he gave it to Shelby , and said, "Go into the other room and see if you can put this together. This will show you our whole country today." After a few minutes, Shelby returned and handed him the map, correctly fitted and taped together. The father was surprised and asked how she had finished so quickly. "Oh," she said, "on the other side of the paper is a picture of Jesus. When I got Jesus back where He belonged, then our country just came together."

Get Jesus back where He belongs, USA! In our hearts. Helping us via the Holy Spirit to make the right choices, to do the right things. I don't subscribe to the theory that if we walk with God He will make us rich with money... I believe that He will make us rich in joy, peace, love - long suffering, gentleness, meekness, kindness - contentment with daily bread.

A righteous prosperity - sadly it is dwindling in our country.

Don't forget to read the Bible today.
