God Didn't Give Us a Spirit of Fear!!

But of POWER, LOVE and a SOUND MIND!
2Timothy 1:7

All day yesterday the words that kept coming across my screen were, fear, depressed, scared to death, death of Liberty, America's death, slavery. The clincher for me was this applauded post on Facebook:
USA - Greatest Country on Earth - Home of the Brave & Land of the Free!!! 
Born: July 4, 1776 Died: Jan. 20, 2009 Buried: Mar 21, 2010
 
To which I added:
ROSE FROM THE DEAD March 22, 2010

This is where America is at her best ==> Defending Her Freedom!! the only difference is we're now having to learn how to defend from within our borders. So buck up, get over the whining and start FIGHTING!! If you hate it, fight it. If you support it, throw every part of your being into it succeeding.  Be a part of the Sleeping Giant this arrogant administration has awoke!!
 
Seriously, I don't see this as a roll-over-and-die event for the United States of America. To me, this is where the story gets really really good! Pre March 21st I remember reading several pieces where the authors were hoping they WOULD ignore the People and pass this atrocity. One man said, "A minority in congress + the American People = The Majority."  The overwhelming majority of American's, every Republican and a brave hand full of Democrats opposed this health care monstrosity, they didn't listen.  That doesn't make us suddenly a minority. That should make us bristle up, stand up taller and make the charge toward fighting for what we believe in with all our might. 

I'm more energized now than at the beginning of that lost battle. I spent the day reading and connecting to those who have a positive energy to move forward and a drive to fight to win the next battle. I want to know where to spend the best of my energy. 
 
 
 
I refuse to fly my flag upside down. I chose to pick up my flag and face the charge with more determination and enthusiasm than ever before. Now is the time to seek the face of God, get re-energized in His promises and assurance of, ultimately, Whose I am.

Build yourself back up. Find out where you can best connect and serve. Serve with your time, serve with your knowledge, serve with your monetary support, serve with your talents. It's time to become PRO-active instead of re-active. It's going to get a little uncomfortable. Maybe that's what it takes. It's time to get out of our comfort zones with the idea that everyone else will take care of it. It's personal, it's your fight too. 
 
Drop the (R), (D), (I), (L) behind your name, be a part of supporting and encouraging one another as we stand together as Americans. I don't personally know any one person who supports the IRS having more control over our lives. Remain arm in arm for Christian convictions. Find a common ground, stand together. The battle is for our freedom. ALL of us. My neighbor with opposing viewpoints is not my enemy. Those are my fellow Americans. They may have different opinions and different hopes for their families, I respect that and expect the same in return. That's what makes us such an incredible Nation, our freedom to pursue happiness by our individual standards. 
 
This is truly a great day to be an American!
 
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” ~Ronald Reagan
