God Is Not Dead!

One nation under God,” is what our founders said,
But something happened on the way. They now say God is dead.
I know our God lives on. He stands at heaven’s gate.
And He will bring our nation back from greed, and lies and hate.

Under our power alone, we cannot run the race.
He sent His dear Son, Jesus, to die and take our place.
Because He is our God, He’ll never let us stray.
He holds our hands and leads us into His holy way.

When we turn back to God, His arms are open wide.
He doesn’t look at our mistakes, but instead He looks inside.
So let’s get back to basics and remember who we are.
Our God’s not dead. He lives and reigns in hearts both near and

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    Just a historical clarification. The words ‘under God’ were added to the Pledge of Allegiance in 1954 in response to the communist threat (and I’m all for keeping it in there). The Founders didn’t say it, but what they actually said is more profound. They wrote a Declaration of Independence saying ‘that all men…are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights…’ In other words, the Founders believed we got our rights directly from God, not earthly powers. That’s a big deal to me.
