As We Celebrate Independence Day

As We Celebrate Independence Day…


At this time, which we celebrate our independence.

Perhaps we should look at this country’s dependence.


It’s like we want to be independent of God’s commands.

And have brought a dependence of evil all over the land.


Do we have the freedom that helped us get started?

Or has the freedom we once enjoyed, long departed?


We’ve allowed a tide of wickedness upon our shores!

And have no idea what God’s freedom is meant for!


Only Jesus can give us the freedom that we need.

Only he can break the bondage of lust and greed!


Only he can bring a salvation and hope that will help us!

Before the corruption begins to fill and overwhelm us!


Only he can provide the freedom from the bondage of sin!

And bring a peace and stability to our lives again!


Through Christ, there is no God and man separation!

Only his blood can cleanse the heart of this nation!


During this Independence Day, here’s the question;

“Have you thought about going in God’s direction?”


Through Christ, independence can be a daily experience.

You can be changed by his power and glorious appearance!


Dear Lord Jesus, as we begin our celebration…

May we honor you, as the God of our nation!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
