"Let Go and Let God"

In John 6:40 Jesus declared, "For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day." Overcome your fears and let God through the Holy Spirit mold you and rule your life. Be happy as you trust in Jesus, follow his teachings and God will bless your life abundantly. And in 1 Corinthians 5:16-17, the Holy Spirit in Saint Paul tells us, “Be joyful always, pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

In John 8:12, Jesus spoke again to the people saying, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life." Make a difference in this world by helping others know Jesus in you and see the light ... Let your light shine brightly now!

And in Matthew 6:33, Jesus said, " Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you." Live with true peace, see and feel the blessings and fulfillment that come upon your life when you do what is good for others as compared when you judge and cause pain in others which can bring so much stress, conflict and even illness in your life."

To Our Youth and The Weary, "Hope and Trust in God and Be Generous"

Herewith is a related inspirational message from the letter of St. Paul to the young Timothy (1Timothy 6:17-19), which states, “Command those who are rich in the present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.”

Finding God in War: Soldiers Face God and Mortality in Combat

(Navy Chaplain, Lt. Marc Massie seen on left)

It is the popular notion that there are no atheists on foxholes.  When a soldier sees mortality in combat he usually thinks of death and the probability of him being next. 

And in these times soldiers are still searching and finding God.  It is just like when somebody sees an impending death or in a bind or crisis, wherever one may be, he sees the importance of prayers and forgiveness.  Don't you think we always have to thank God everytime we see a bright new day or even when facing a problem, don't you think we have more blessings to share and thank God for than being obnoxious or loud, digging the past (which we cannot change except learn from it as an opportunity for change) and turn to sin?  Here are some related inspirational verses from the bible...

In Matthew 6:25 and 34, Christ says, "Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear.  Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? ... do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own."

From the Psalm of David Ps 23:1-4, "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.  He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.  He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me."

Read more on our CNA link below and gain some insight, and remember to pray for our soldiers too aside from our love ones, as we also pray for peace, mercy and continued guidance.

  1. That's what I like here in America. Americans give special reverence to the fallen soldiers who have offered their lives for freedom, not only for America, but for the whole world, wittingly or unwittingly and have promoted democracy as well. God bless America for this noble role of being “Policeman of the World”, no matter how imperfect it can be, there are more blessings to count than the dark dot(s). American interest is always there. Nevertheless, there is no substitute to being in the right path always with God, under the Holy Spirit, through Jesus Christ our Savior. For this "life is only a stepping stone to what is 'truly life'" (as in 1TImothy 6:17-19)
