REMEMBER and honor
For all those who have protected our nation, for the men and women in uniform, together, we say “Thank You.”
We take time to remember today, and say a prayer of gratefulness for the many who have been willing to pay a great price for our freedom. May God help us to live so courageously, may we follow the brave examples of those who have gone before us…
Thank you for reminding us that there’s incredible love and sacrifice displayed when one is willing to stand strong and fight for freedom.
This service of love and sacrifice on behalf of all people, points us directly to the greatest love of all, the very gift and sacrifice of Christ.
Our Savior was willing to pay the ultimate price, so that we can live free. Forever.

My Way vs God's Way
Why do we continue to do things our way, when God has already made His way known? God wants to bless us, but obedience must come first.. My Way vs God's Way
Obstacles to Forgiving Ourselves
Every human being has a sin problem. We lose our temper, make mistakes, and harbor selfish motives, but God offers forgiveness for everyone who will accept it. And yet many believers find it impossible to forgive themselves. Why?
First, we struggle with self-forgiveness at times because we find it difficult to accept God’s forgiveness. Guilt can overshadow the enormous gift of pardon and restoration that our Father has freely provided. We may think, What I’ve done is just too terrible for God to forgive me, but that’s never true. (See Titus 2:14.)
Second, personal disappointment can prevent us from forgiving ourselves. If we have ridiculously high, self-imposed standards for our behavior, failure to live up to them can leave us feeling disappointed and unworthy of forgiveness.
Third, seeing the results of our sin can keep guilt alive in our mind. That is, if our wrong actions produce a tangible negative consequence, we may find it hard to forgive ourselves.
Are you harboring remorse for a sin from your past? God’s forgiveness is available now (1 John 1:9). Christ gave His life to make you free, so don’t willingly stay in chains. You’re invited forgive yourself for what God has already pardoned (Gal. 5:1).
