"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance." (Psalm 33:12)
This scripture reminds me that God hasn't given up on our nation and neither should we. As long as there is a remnant of God's people in this country, He will continue to bless this country because of His children--US. Our churches may not be without spot or blemish, but there are hearts that still love and seek Him. We may get caught up in the responsibility of our daily lives and may not show it every hour of the day, but our heavenly Father knows our hearts.
We are still a nation who loves others and gives to those in need. When natural disaster strikes, our churches and nonprofits--even our military--head to the scene offering whatever supplies and help we're allowed. We are still the country that sends out the most missionaries abroad. Many of us are still homeschooling our children, standing up for our children's rights in the public schools, and voting with our hearts not with the politically correct ideals that mean nothing.
None of us will have perfect lives. God never promised that. In fact, most of us are blessed and spoiled even if we don't see it and realize it. In spite of where we are in our lives, God WILL NEVER leave us nor forsake us! Do not lose heart. We are not alone. Keep praying and seeking the one true God as one generation turns into the next.
