Everyone that knows me knows that I am very patriotic. They know how much I love America and wish only the very best for our country. But right now I am struggling. And I am hurting.
I’ve been to other countries and I was born in Russia. When I came to America, my life changed. I always thought “What a great country this is and I am so glad to be in it.”
But now I am very nervous, I am worried. I’ve watched the last few years become divided. I’ve always thought America would prevail. I’m not so sure now .I am witnessing something, if I am being honest. I never thought I’d witness this country possibly spiraling downwards. It makes me want to cry. I’ve seen first-hand Third World countries and it opened my eyes as to how lucky I am to live in America and I don’t understand or see how people could hate America so much. If only they could see the America I see.
I pray that God moves in our next leaders' hearts and changes their lives. I pray they fall on their knees and change. That’s all I can do. That’s all that is left to do. In the end God is our ultimate authority and it is His will...not ours.
