Fourth of July is upon us. I'm proud to be an American and all that.
A post on Facebook asked "how would you respond if you were given a choice--deny your faith and live? Or stay true and be killed?"
Of course I hope I won't renounce by faith. But I think that misses the point.
I don't have to know today how I would respond. I don't need the grace today to remain steadfast (although I acknowledge that today's choices will influence my later decisions.) Jesus Himself said "But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say," (Matthew 10:19)
God gives me the grace I need for today. He has brought me safely through every day this far. I trust He will whatever happens tomorrow.
So I won't worry about who wins the presidential election (even though I dislike either choice more than ever)
Whether I stay at home or go into a nursing home. . .I trust God will be with me there.
