July 4, 2017 was 241 years of independence for the United States from Great Britain.
So many people immigrated to an unknown land in order to have freedom. I can’t imagine that there was anything easy about the decision to leave the motherland, the voyage, the landing or exploring and settling in unfamiliar territory. Something as big as sailing across an ocean to a place you’re not even sure exists had to be God-ordained, in my opinion.
The United States was founded on Godly principles with the Bible at the center of it all. I’m thankful for the people who made the move and all the people through history who have sacrificed everything to keep our country free. Most of all, I thank God that I was born in America and that I am free.
