has a way of reminding me of my dependence on God, just like it did for many who fought for the freedoms we have in this country. The title itself helps me reset my focus with dependence on God.
But what does it look like to be dependent on God in an independent world? I like how photographer Jessica Sheppard put it, “As teens, we want independence. As women, we want independence. (I would add as seniors we want to keep our independence!) As a nation, we want independence. But if you ask me, I’d rather not do it all on my own. There is freedom in submission. I can’t move any mountains for myself. I’m not strong enough, I’m not smart enough, I’m not brave enough…but with God? I believe He can help me do anything, so I go to Him for everything.”
This Independence Day, use the patriotic songs found in our July Blessing Gift to celebrate with your friends and family!
