A day that shall live in Infamy!

Today's date reminded me of a very significant event which occurred exactly 64 years ago. In fact it was a defining moment in the history of the United States. It marked the start of the U.S. involvement in WWII, a commitment which would continue for 5 years to come.

Many of our decisions in life are made by defining moments, in fact many things that happen to us directly affect how we will respond to life. While we cannot choose the things that happen to us, we can definitely choose how we will respond to them.

How are you responding to life's crises? God promised that His grace would be sufficient for our need, but we must choose to accept that grace. This requires humility, first to acknowledge our need for Christ, and secondly to ask for His grace. But oh the joy!
