What's the Formula to Save America?

text size A A A

Are you concerned about the ever-increasing immorality and corruption suffocating the soul of our great land? We're the first to be real with you and say that it's easy to feel overwhelmed. (Some people actually think that we don't have the same feelings since we're always busy doing something to promote the Gospel and help our country. But we wrestle with the same feelings that you do.)

That "overwhelmed feeling" certainly exists and flattens many conservative Christians. In fact, the only action some discouraged Christian Americans now take could be called the "head shake": They shake their heads, maybe pray, and yet stay...still. It's time to ask this question: Are you (and are we) doing anything today to stop the advancement of evil in the USA? How do we overcome the overwhelmed feeling?

Let's talk about how:

The first step to walking into a brighter future is a decision: Choose faith instead of feelings to be your motivator. With God, you have what it takes to take our country into a brighter future! Let confident faith in Christ rule your daily planner instead of cowering feelings. Learn to ignore the "overwhelmed feeling" and instead replace it with overwhelming faith by making a choice to obey God --whether you feel like it or not.

Since we know that overwhelmed feeling, we wanted to help others overcome it through Christ. That's why we do what we do. We can all be overcomers through Christ! (Learn how to know Him by clicking here.) Repentance of sin and acceptance of God's Son always precedes the climax when a battle is won!

But, yes, sometimes we all feel like the psalmist: "I am overwhelmed with indignation, for my enemies have disregarded your words." (Psalm 119:139, NLT)

We must trade the bad overwhelmed feeling for the good kind: "I am overwhelmed with joy in the Lord my God! For he has dressed me with the clothing of salvation and draped me in a robe of righteousness. I am like a bridegroom dressed for his wedding or a bride with her jewels." (Isaiah 61:10, NLT)

Also, in order to trade the bad overwhelmed feeling for the good kind, we must focus on Christ and take action even when we don't feel like it. We wrote a book in response to this great need to inspire action in spite of feeling overwhelmed. Allow us to share how to overcome that overwhelmed feeling and instead encourage and catalyze positive action. We worked hard, researched a lot, and write a "common sense Christian" book entitled, Unite the USA: Discover the ABCs of Patriotism. In our book, we share history and how to make history. Instead of just covering the problems in our nation, we shared over 100 easy, applicable ways that anyone can help turn our country around.

So, what's the formula to get our country back on track? We believe that this is the formula:

Serious Prayer + The Lord's Help + Obedient Action = Positive Change

Remember, it all starts with each one of us...including you. It's not just about the other guy. We each must do something. Be an example of an active citizen to your family, friends, and community --even if you make a goal of doing just one thing a month. Here are two Bible verses that inspire us forward:

Psalm 33:12: "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord..."

2 Chronicles 7:14: "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

This month, we're featuring a gripping article by Dr. Jerry Newcombe. It is called Threats to Freedom in "the Land of the Free" and it informs the reader about a very critical topic facing the nation: religious persecution within the USA. Please read it. The article will open your eyes.

Please read Unite the USA and learn how you can help. Our country depends on you. We must unite and act as a team to save our freedoms and America.

We must change from being on a "campaign to complain" about our country's current state and instead embark on a campaign to gain: Gain God's version of positive change and a bright future! Thank you and God bless you.
