Welcome to my blog! I hope to be a resource to help you in your walk with God. Now more than ever we need to get back to the basic fundamentals of moral living and take a stand for what is right and truthful with God as our ultimate authority. His Word is reliable and preserved and can be trusted, so that is the basis for my advice and teaching. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or topics you would like me to cover. I look forward to sharing what God has placed on my heart. See my website at http://www.dawnfoss.tateauthor.com and http://www.dawnfoss.com/ for books and music I have written that will enrich your life!

Ezekiel 22:30: "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none." Let's stand in the gap together!

What Makes a Country Great?

What Makes a Country Great?
By Dawn Foss

I wasn’t alive when our forefathers wrote
America’s constitution.
In History class I read how they
Found a political solution.

Things today seem kind of mixed up,
I hear the parents complain.
They talk about biblical values
That brought America fame.

I’m a little confused, what do they mean?
What values do they miss?
My teacher taught us these things
Are needed for God to bless.

First, a country must do right
And strive to please the Lord.
Second they must work hard,
Contribute to the world.

Third, they must value life
And not harm one another.
Fourth they have the right
To protect their sister and brother.

Fifth, in everything they do,
They treat each other well
With kindness, love, compassion, truth,
So safely we all dwell.

Other things a country needs
Are for its citizens to obey;
Uphold the laws and do what’s right,
Put selfishness away.

They have the right to vote,
To speak their conscience, too.
To worship God in public,
The religion that they choose.

They won’t breach the peace,
They don’t cross their neighbor’s fence.
It seems to me these things,
Are simply common sense.

Living moral lives for God
Will wipe out sin’s pollution.
What’s the problem, turn to God

For America’s solution.
