When I look back on my life I have come to realize that growing up was fun. I always looked forward to my next birthday because I got presents and got to do things that my age qualified me to do. When I left my childhood behind I had to deal with things that required a more serious attitude. I had to deal with the military and all the things a new adult has to deal with. All my time as a student and a member of a large family prepared me for the responsibilities of life.
Growing up can take its toll on anyone who is not properly trained to accept all the challenges. I slipped into the world and away from my relationship with God. Just like everyone else, life was hard because I became its student.
Ephesians 4:11,14 God gave some Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers for the maturing of the Saints. That we be no more children, tossed to and fro by deceivers.
I became a born-again Christian, a child of God, a babe in Christ. Now I’m growing up all over again for the first time. I’m back to enjoying my childhood all over again and I’m having fun growing up in Him. I will continue to grow until I see Him face to face.
I know the grace of God,
it came from His love for me.
Jesus was a wealthy man,
but the curse made Him poor so I could be increased with wealth.
Jesus is my Passover,
I eat His body and drink His blood.
I have His life within me,
a life of peace and abundance.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
