We are glad you are visiting our website.

 

Have a blessed day! Remember that Jesus loves you and we at Black Creek love you. We invite you to attend any of our services as you have opportunity. The world’s situation is horrible. Prophecy is being fulfilled each day which leads us to a personal question. Are you ready for the return of Jesus? Any day He may come with trumpet sounds. If you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus, invite Him to be your Savior and Lord. We can help. Call if you need someone to pray with you or help you find who Jesus really is. You will be glad you did!

A FEW WORDS FROM DR. BILL

July fourth is a very special day for our Nation. The history of our nation is rich and those people who were a part of it were visionary individuals. Many, if not all of them would be flabbergasted at the things that have taken place over hundreds of years.

We are a blessed nation by God and we should be thankful to God for his supportive care and compassion. God has blessed America so much we could never thank Him for all the blessings that have been ours. These blessings come on an individual, family, church, community and national level. Have you thanked God for the blessings of being able to live in a free country? As bad as the news and situations are in America, we continue to remain free. Thank God for that!!!

God’s blessings are known to the people of Israel in the Bible and we know that God blesses us. God continues to shine his love and light down upon us and he continues to have good things available for us.

We find these truths in the Psalm. In Psalm 33:12  God’s word says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.”  What a blessing that is from our loving and eternal God. Also in Psalm 89:15-17 we read, “Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance. In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted. For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.”

What a blessing to have God’s presence and favor upon the American people. He continues to love America even though many have neglected and rebelled against him. He always gives us another chance to accept him. By the way, God allows U Turns. If not, we would not be where we are today.

The country music singer song writer Lee Greenwood penned the lyrics to “Proud To Be An American”.  Read the words and think about the life changing lyrics of this song.

 “PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN”

If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life,
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife.
I’d thank my lucky stars to be living here today,
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.

From the lakes of Minnesota, to the hills of Tennessee,
Across the plains of Texas, from sea to shining sea,
From Detroit down to Houston and New York to LA,
Well, there’s pride in every American heart,
And it’s time we stand and say:

I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land! God bless the U.S.A.

And I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.

 

Are you proud to be an American? My Father was in the Korean conflict and he was proud of his country and very proud to be an American. I, too, am proud to be an American, but value more in being a Christian American.  What a double blessing God gives to us. Think about what it means to be an American and live in a free country. God has blessed us tremendously and will continue to do so as long as we put him first in all of life. God truly has blessed the USA.

Another song to be mulling over in our mind is “God Bless America” by Irving Berlin.

 

“GOD BLESS AMERICA”

God bless America,
Land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above;
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.

 

As always, may God write the record of His love upon your hearts and lives through Christ Jesus our Lord. May God’s blessings of love, laughter, and eternal security be free to you.

 

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY
