Proud to be an American

As Donald J. Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America, I cannot help but feel a certain pride as a citizen of a great nation. As I watch, I am overcome with pride and humility. Pride knowing the fact that I am witnessing something very special that is more than just a man being sworn in as President. The pride is knowing that we are a great nation and that we have and continue to dedicate ourselves to the work ahead. I feel a sense of humility knowing that God Almighty has blessed this great nation and given it a huge responsibility to love our neighbor and to work to the betterment of all men.

Once again, we must realize our place in the world. A great nation of proud Americans who acknowledge the traditions and legacy of our past and look forward to the future. A great nation who humbles itself before God. We, as one people, must remember the words of 2 Chronicles.

Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.  2 Chronicles 7:14 (NLT)
