I LOVE how we stop on Memorial Day and HONOR those soldiers who have died protecting our lives and our country.
I think it’s interesting, how God actually instituted a form of Memorial Day, thousands of years ago.
He would often ask the Israelites to stop and build an altar or make a pile of rocks; so whenever anyone passed by their crude statue, they would STOP and REMEMBER all the good things He had done.
Today, I just want to stop and remember what my country has done for me. I was a Canadian 3 yr-old, who was adopted into the arms of AMERICA!
I want to remember what MY GOD has done for me. A little girl that was given up by her biological dad…but always treasured by her SPIRITUAL FATHER!
What kind of memories do you have, today? Who or what do you HONOR?
When we take time to show honor, that helps keep our eyes on all that we HAVE, instead of complaining about what we think we don’t have.
Join me, and pray for the families of those who have died in our defense. We pray PSALM 91 PROTECTION over all those, around the world, who stand in our place, TODAY.
If you are a veteran or first-responder…WE HONOR YOU and THANK YOU for your service!
“No one has greater love [no one has shown stronger affection] than to lay down (give up) his own life for his friends.” John 15:13 (AMPC)
Happy Memorial Day!
This is the perfect time to give honor where honor is due. Tell me, what have your country and your God done for you?
