Pledge of Allegiance

The above was on my mind this morning as I awoke and I was immediately reminded of the words “under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all”.  Indivisible meaning undivided  and “for all” is self-explanatory.  While praying for our country I was led to a verse in a hymn that is sung in our Church.

“Come, ye disconsolate, where’er  ye languish,

Here health and peace are found, Life, Truth, and Love;

Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;

Earth has no sorrow but Love can remove.”

“Perfect Love casteth out fear.”  Fear is always at the base of any discomfort followed by hatred and resentment.  Recognizing this, I know I have to begin my prayer work with God/Love and see how He is seeing things.  I know it is not from eyes that are filled with hatred, resentment, bitterness, etc.  Today, I will look through God’s eyes and listen carefully; rather than with judgment and self-righteousness.!
