Today is Veteran’s Day.
It is a day when we remember…
All those who have served – all those who were injured, or captured, or tortured – all those who are missing – all those who have died. And all those who are serving now.
We have so much to be grateful for…
Last week, I voted – Thank you.
Last week, I attended church – Thank you.
Last week, I bowed my head and said “grace” before a meal, in public – Thank you.
Last week, I attended a Bible Study – Thank you.
Last week, I drove my car, with a Jesus sticker on it – Thank you.
Last week, I carried my Bible with me – Thank you.
Last week, I spoke to someone about my faith – Thank you.
Last week, I did so many things that would not have been possible if someone hadn’t fought for this country – for my country – for your country.
We have the glorious freedom to worship our Lord – freely and publicly. We are not in danger of being thrown in jail, or tortured, or killed. And our veterans have sacrificed so much in order for us to have that freedom.
Today I don’t think it matters whether we agree or don’t agree with political policy. Today it doesn’t matter if we are “hawks” or “doves.” Today we simply focus on people – real, live people who served our country, or are serving now – who did this for our sakes – because they believed in freedom.
May we take today to remember what they have fought for – what they have sacrificed for – what they have believed in…
One nation…under GOD.
If you know someone who has served, or is serving, this country in the armed forces, I would encourage you to reach out to them today. Tell them how much you appreciate them. Tell them we will always remember them. Tell them…
Remind them that God sees – He upholds them – He will never forget what they have done – in the name of…
El Roi. The God Who Sees Me.
“You are the God who sees me.” (Genesis 16:13)
"Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:9)
