The phrase, “In God we trust,” is constantly being bantered about on Facebook; as people post varying memes regarding the removing of it from our currency and various other items. Like this one for instance:
Don’t get me wrong; I think it’s good that we collectively show our allegiance to God in the many ways we do, and I think it would be good if we continue to do so. But, I also believe that in the overall scheme of things it really doesn’t matter.
What we need to get hold of, and never let go of, is the fact that “they”—no one—can ever take our trust in God from us. If we truly love Him and trust in Him, they can remove him from every outward facet of our lives, and it will make no difference at all.
I will love and trust in God no matter what the government does. They can take In God We Trust from everything—they can even make it against the law to say it—and I will continue to love Him, trust in Him, and proclaim both. Because, quite frankly, loving and trusting in God is truly all that matters, and the one thing they can’t remove those things from… is my heart.
