America, America, I no longer see your smile
Not even it’s shadow
Your smile no longer lights up the dawn
You are like a song lyric about a lost love
Your smile is hidden behind cloth
Your personality has been diminished by fear
The memories of your children are no longer innocent nor unblemished
What legacy are you leaving to your children, America?
Why are there no visible smiles, no handshakes?
Why are we framed by a series of unwanted injections?
Is there to be no contact, no freedom, no more friendships?
If our history is forgotten and our hearts are hidden,
Who remains to do God’s bidding?
We must continue to embrace love and resist tyranny
God welcomes rebellion stated firmly in his name
We will rebel against all that is of the Devil, both foreign and domestic
We will resist, as our faith will never allow us to forget the one true God
God, the Father, who remains “I Am”
I remain vigilant in my belief in Jesus as Savior
I await his return as I share the lighting of a welcoming lamp
We will follow Jesus as we help to overturn the tables
The tables where our Government believes their own delusions
Government, who think that they have become the temple of our beliefs
Government, who creates cowards
Government, who is the beast with three numbers
I will continue to resist in the name of Jesus
As Christians, we must remain active shepherds against false prophets
We must become the teachers and comforters of fearful sheep
Our responsibility is to those who remain faithful and to those seeking faith
America, reminds me now of Israel during the time of Isaiah
Troubled, sinful, divided
We must now present our lives before Christ, everyday
Now, more than ever, is the time to live for Christ
To live by his word and example
As we breathe together carefully during this time of trouble, we pause
Psalms 62:8 “Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us, Selah”
