May we honor our hero’s and the sacrifice they have given.
Lord, we ask in Jesus Name that You hide our soldiers both near and far beneath Your wings and keep them safe. Be with their families Lord and bless them for their sacrifices are important, too. Thank you Lord for those who have given all for our freedom. Fill their loved ones with your comfort and peace. May you bless mightily the brave pilots who bring our hero’s home and keep them safe. Surround them with your angels and guide them home. In Jesus Name. Amen

For Christians there is ALWAYS hope.
We all have times when we feel like we cannot HOPE anymore. Support systems fail, friends fail, family fails, church “family” fails, organizations and programs fail, we fail.

Some actually succeed in giving up and find themselves in a black hole that feels eternal. Some die. The process begins to happen when darkness settles in and takes up residence somewhere in our lives, our minds
Hopelessness for the Christian is not true. It’s a lie. Oh, the actual feeling is real, the emotional toll on the health of the body is real, sometimes to the point of death. However, its reason for taking up residence and control of your life is not. God decided before the foundations of the earth were laid that His people…

With God’s help we can rise above our past.
Picture it. 1937. A skinny little boy with big brown eyes lying on his bed wheezing. His father gently picks him up and rushes him to the hospital. He has pneumonia.

When it’s time to be discharged the doctors and nurses are puzzled. Where is the little boys father? No sign of his mother either. No-one has even visited. Having no other choice they call child services and he is placed in a Christian orphanage.
I can’t imagine how he felt. The confusion of why his parents didn’t come to see him or why they didn’t come to take him home. “Where’s my Daddy?” must have haunted his thoughts daily. The fear he must have felt in being in a strange place…
