“Pieces” by Amanda Cook. So simple. So full of truth. So full of the Love of Father God towards YOU. 🙂
Just worship Him today! Forget the elections, the worries, the distractions,…. and just worship the King of kings. He is so deserving of our love and attention, all day, every day.
After going through a difficult time in 2013,… after my Family’s and my life “blew up”, I was devastated.I had prayed for three YEARS before it, knowing it was coming, seeking God for help.
Three years of all day praying and getting closer to Him, in fact I became closer to Him than I ever have! It’s amazing what desperation will produce.
Our world, still blew up,… shattered.
Tears, our kids breaking down in front of their schools, sobbing, frightened… it was bad.
I became quiet, confused, and feeling abandoned by God.
About a year later He was still gently, lovingly, drawing me back to Himself. I did love Him, and do. That will never change! But that day He had me read the book of Job.
I read it,… and it was exactly what I was feeling inside. The confusion, the pain, the feeling of rejection, faith shattered.
Every page was like TORTURE to me. It was re-opening the wounds and distrust. I HATED reading that book,… hated it.
It was, (and is) hard to understand. Why did Job have to go through all of that?? Why didn’t You intervene?
My hurt, confusion, and distrust have subsided since then, but there is still scars. I still have trouble with faith in that area (that blew up).
Today I was reading a book by Bob Sorge called, “Unrelenting Prayer”. I decided to look him up, and the first thing that came up was this video.
After watching it,… I feel like Jobe at the end, repenting. :*)
“… and I will heal their land.”
A lot of us feel the United States is going through some horrible things.
First off, we certainly do not feel or act United at all. We have become so divided, self centered and broken that we barely seem to resemble The United States.
Confusion, rebellion, selfishness, oppression and idols have seem to take over.
Words like “compassion”, “forgiveness” and “Truth”, let alone “Jesus The Christ” are almost repulsive and offensive to many.
Truth have been portrayed as lies, and lies have become portrayed as truth, just as right is now wrong, and wrong is now right.
But don’t give up, because there is a solution.
Our solution does not come from another leader. It won’t come from more revenue. It won’t come from a stronger Military. Our solution will not come from any person, period.
Our solution comes from Father God Almighty Himself, and He has told us how to come before Him for this matter.

Quote from the audio message, “A Call To Corporate Fasting.” By Derek Prince.
“Let me give you a favorite verse, 2 Chronicles 7:14. This is a promise. I’m not going into the background. It’s a promise given by God. I believe that to apply it to this situation is scriptural and legitimate, but I’m not going to take time to establish all that. Second Chronicles 7:14:
“If . . . My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
There’s an “if.” God says, “It depends on what My people do.” It says, “My people who are called by My name.” The Hebrew says literally, “Upon whom My name is called.” I believe that applies to us as Christians. Why are we Christians? Because the name of Christ is called upon us.
There are actually seven sections to that verse. There are four things that God requires His people to do and then there are three things that God says He will do in response. The four things that God asks His people to do are to humble ourselves, pray, seek God’s face and turn from our wicked ways. On that basis, God says, “I will hear from heaven, I will forgive their sin—that’s the sin of My people—and I will heal their land.” It seems to me that’s where it’s at. We have talked a great deal about the healing of this land. God says there is a way. It depends on what My people do. If My people will do the four things, I’ll do the three things.” – Derek Prince
We need to be united. We need to humble ourselves before Father God. We need to desperately seek His Face through prayer and fasting.
This is the ONLY WAY America can truly become great again, through our submission to Father’s Will.

Does anyone need Wisdom?
Psalm 111:10 AMP, “The reverent fear and worship of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom and skill [the preceding and the first essential, the prerequisite and the alphabet]; a good understanding, wisdom, and meaning have all those who do [the will of the Lord]. Their praise of Him endures forever.”
Reverence- A feeling of deep respect, love, awe and esteem.
See also Job 28:12-28, Proverbs 1:7, Psalm 25 (note verse 12).
