Just remember God is on our side. When you are weak in spirit, remember God will restore you, God will not forsake or leave us and we thank Him for that. Even though we are a rebellious nation, He still had His loving hand extended to us. If we repent and turn toward Him, He will forgive.

A good message for these times.
