Psalm 127 (NIV1984)
Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.
As I have watched the direction our country is headed the past few years, this verse has come to mind over and over again. American has been overly blessed by God because we were founded in Him and for what we have stood for.

JOURNAL: On my way to work yesterday morning, it began to drizzle a little. It was not drizzling enough to be able to turn the wipers on even at the longest delay without getting that wiper scraping sound but enough that it required me to manually turn the wipers on randomly as needed. This is the most annoying kind of rain to me.

JOURNAL: I think most of us have had times when we have been disappointed with God. A time when we felt like He let us down somehow. Maybe it was due to something we wanted so badly and prayed so hard for and then in the end, it did not happen. Or maybe it was due to something we didn't want to happen very badly and we prayed so hard that it would not, only to have it roll over us like a steam roller. Maybe it was a marriage or relationship that failed or never came to be.
