This first verse of Isaiah 59 lifts up the head and encourages the soul:

Then, verse 2 throws the ice-cold truth in our face:

“But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear.”

Verse 3 begins the ensuing description of our iniquities:

“For your hands are defiled with blood…”

It would do Americans no good whatsoever to return to what we were one year ago!  Though the populace in general enjoyed freedom, we seemed to have been doing so in a state of oblivion!  We came and went as we pleased.  We worked, played, and rested, per our constitutional rights.  However, we seemed to have become increasingly unaware,  completely careless of, the ongoing murderous plight of the unborn, our collective ears deaf to their screams.  We became passe about the methodical removal of public references to our Creator and His Word.  Is that the America we are begging to have back?  Is our freedom in our personal lives really the most important thing!?  Well, if it is, and if we do get back our “norms,” we had best be prepared for the next hit.  Without the Lord at the helm, the atrocities against humanity will only increase.  History has proven this over and over.
