Are you allegiant? Allegiance, according to Dictionary.com is the loyalty or devotion of a citizen to his or her government or of a subject to his or her sovereign, or devotion to some person, group, cause, etc. Are you fully devoted to this country? Although you may not agree with the past or current leadership are you still devoted to a country that allows diversity? This country has been bouncing from extremes since it’s inception. If we don’t keep our allegiance to the United States primary, allegiance to anything else is of no value. Freedom must first be developed and solidified before allegiance to lesser causes can be accessed.
I am first allegiant to God and all that God has blessed me with including my wife and family. Secondly I am allegiant to my country for which I have been so blessed. With the freedom I have been given as a citizen of The United States I have true opportunity many people around the world do not have. The more I take time to count my blessings, the more allegiance I profess to my country. I love the United States. I may not love what happens in this country but I know that if I stand for what is right eventually God will intervene and provide what is best and right for us all.
We all have an opinion! If we did not live in a free country we would not be able to share our opinion without fallout. I am free to make mistakes and in the process I learn what I need to learn and my life continues to unfold. I served in the United States Air Force and the Montana Army National Guard. I have been on boards and committees. I have served at many levels according the needs and talents I could provide. Allegiance is not proven till service is rendered. As a recovering addict, I found it easy to talk and service not so easy. If you want to know if you are truly allegiant remember…
Your Life is PERFECT!
