And pray for our servicemen and servicewomen. 

1 Peter 2:16 ESV
Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. 

2 Corinthians 3:17 ESV
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 

Galatians 5:1 ESV
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

Titus 3:1-5 ESV
Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, 

John 8:32 ESV
And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself. 

John 3:16 ESV
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

1 Peter 2:11 ESV
Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul.

Ezekiel 36:26 ESV
And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 


1 Peter 2:16 ESV
Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. 




Do you realize that our troops at war, are at war in our place.  

They defend our freedom. And the freedom of helpless human beings in other countries.  Freedom comes with a price. 


How hard can it be to say thanks.  How hard can it be, to help a vet we see in the streets begging homeless for money, a crying shame.  

They are godly man. Keeping order on earth.  Carrying out God's commands.  

In the Bible 

Romans 13:1-5

1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.
2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.
3 For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval,
4 for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer.
5 Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience.

A Fallen Trooper of God, is a Fallen Hero, will never be forgotten.  Pray for their family, friends and comrades.  When our heroes return home, our people should receive them with open arms.  Nurture them with their needs, from health to jobs.  


Regardless how you view our world, our country.   Keep our troops in your prayers and memories, needless to say everyday.   It's every day they get up to face another battle.  It weighs heavy for them without their loved and for their loved ones as well. 

Think of the precious times we spend we our loved ones.  Cuddled up. Think of the embraces and kisses they miss.  
Special holidays, occasions, events, you name it. Things we take for granted.  They yearn for.   

Next time you see a vet, go out of your way and shake their hands and blessed them while thanking them for their heroic act of serving in our place.  

Thank God, because of our troops we wake up in the morning to enjoy our freedom.  

A dishonor to a Veteran or our Service man, Service woman, is indeed a dishonor to God.  They are ordain by God and are following or followed His command to keep order on earth.  Regardless how you view our world, our country.  Have you taken time to ponder and made a list of the things you take for granted.   And it should weigh heavy when we suffer loss of our troops.  Or if we see injustice inflicted upon them.  If you become indignant and defend, that is a justifiable act, since it Honors God. Always bear in mind that you do it to Honor God and our Vets, and our Service man, Service woman.

Trust in the Lord, He is with You!!!

Arise, for it is your task, and we are with you; be strong and do it." - Ezra 10:4


Dear Serviceman and Servicewoman of God, of a true loving and 


Never doubt your salvation, never doubt God goes before you.  

It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed." - Deuteronomy 31:8

7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;  He Is a shield to those who walk in integrity, 

8 guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints. 

9 Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path; 

10 for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; 

11 discretion will watch over you, understanding will guard you, 

12 delivering you from the way of evil, from men of perverted speech, 

13 who forsake the paths of uprightness to walk in the ways of darkness, 

14 who rejoice in doing evil and delight in the perverseness of evil, 

15 men whose paths are crooked, and who are devious in their ways.  - Proverbs 2:7-15

20 So you will walk in the way of the good and keep to the paths of the righteous. 

21 For the upright will inhabit the land, and those with integrity will remain in it, 

22 but the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the treacherous will be rooted out of it.  - Proverbs 2:20-22

4 So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man. 

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 

6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and He will make straight your paths. 

7 Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil. 

8 It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.  - Proverbs 3:4-8

I pray everyday for my troops, and their families.  



Maximiliano Sanchez, II 

I praise God that I live in a nation that is protected by soldiers, both men and women, who wake up every morning with just one goal in mind: to fight for freedom. Because of what they do the United States of America remains free. Soldiers spend many days, weeks, months and even years away from their loved ones to meet this goal.  The love that they have is unfailing, and it is displayed by their bravery and dedication. Our heavenly Father is the author of unfailing love — steadfast love. The psalmist in the Bible says “Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.” Psalms 143:8

Stated by Pamela Williams. I share this awesome feeling.  

Joshua 1:9  Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

Strength: Prayers and Promises

Psalms 18:31-36 For who is God, but the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God?—the God who equipped me with strength and made my way blameless. He made my feet like the feet of a deer and set me secure on the heights. He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You have given me the shield of your salvation, and your right hand supported me, and your gentleness made me great. You gave a wide place for my steps under me, and my feet did not slip. 

Psalms 29:11 May the LORD give strength to His people! May the LORD bless His people with peace!

Psalms 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Psalms 73:26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

Trust in the Lord, He is with You

Deuteronomy 31:8 … It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”

Isaiah 41:10 “… fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Psalms 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.                                                                                                     

Isaiah 43:1-2 But now thus says the LORD, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.




James 1:23-24
"23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was."

Thats how much we need to depend on The Lord every moment of our lives.   As per Pastor Chris, "meditate on The Lord to the point there's no room in your minds for anything else."

Giving ourselves completely in full devotion to The Lord.  Let The Lord be the one to worry for you.  Yes we have needs, and vicissitudes, trials and temptations cross our ways, and then there is PRAYER.  Communication with our Father.  

It's not as if, He is not aware. Going  to Him gives Him the Honor and Glory. Shows obedience to His commands.  Tells Him that we know we are His children and that we indeed love Him. Without Him we fail and failure compounds our lives.   And then there is REJOICING in The Lord.  

And that which is so Awesome, is when He walks through your storms, as small or as big, you will know it. His presence is felt, and awe is an awesome feeling. You see, He is with us at all times, and trials He allows to mold us, and to make us perfect in Him.  And with trials he provides a way out, VICTORY, He promised and assured it, He gave it to us in writing, in His word.  Our enemy is readily available to cast darts of doubts.  Well, we take them and cast all that comes our way to The Lord and He makes us triumphant.  It is said so in His word.  

"Philippians 4:13 - I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Psalm 56:3
When I am afraid, I will trust in you.

We are His children.  Our Daddy is powerful and mighty.  





Romans 15:13 - Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

John 14:27 - Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Luke 1:37 - For with God nothing shall be impossible.

GOD is a FAITHFUL GOD.  He gave us a perseverant FAIFTH, that endures.  The God of HOPE wants you to abound in HOPE. That's Awesome hope, it's immeasurable.  This HOPE will fill you with joy and peace in believing.  We are EMPOWERED by GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT.  

"Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

Luke 1:37 - For with God nothing shall be impossible.
