Memorial Day

A memorial to all the soldiers who gave their lives for this beautiful country.  A country built on, founded on, the knowledge of Christ Jesus.  What happened?
We need God in America again!

The statement below was the very last post ever published on our old blog, I thought it appropriate to post on this one.

I Am a Soldier
Unknown author. Revised and rewritten by Elisera.

I am a soldier in the army of God. The Lord, Jesus Christ is my commanding officer. The Holy Bible is my Code of Conduct. Faith, prayer, and the Word are my weapons of warfare. I have been taught by the Holy Spirit, trained by experience, tried by adversity and tested by fire.

I am a volunteer in this army and I am enlisted for eternity. I will either retire in this army at the rapture or die in this army; but I will not get out, sell out, be talked out, or pushed out. I am faithful, reliable, capable, and dependable. If my God needs me, I am there. If He needs me in the home, to be His daughter, an example to others about the value of femininity; or in the church to just sit and learn; or in the world to be a light to those searching in darkness, He can use me because I am there.

I am a soldier. I am not a baby, but I am a woman. At times, I may need to be pampered, petted, primed up, pumped up, picked up, or pepped up. I am a soldier, but I am a woman. At times, someone may have to call me, remind me, write me, visit me, entice me, or lure me. I am a soldier, but I am a woman. I am not a wimp. I am in place, saluting my King, obeying His orders, praising His name, and helping to build His kingdom! I am a woman. I may need to be cuddled, cradled, cared for or catered to. But I am committed. I cannot have my feelings hurt bad enough to make me turn around. I cannot be discouraged enough to turn me aside. I cannot lose enough to make me quit.

When Jesus called me into this army, I had nothing. If I end up with nothing, I will still come out ahead. I will win. My God has and always will continue to supply all of my needs. I am more than a conqueror. I will always triumph. I can do all things through Christ. The devil cannot defeat me. People cannot disillusion me. Weather cannot weary me. Sickness cannot stop me. Battles cannot beat me. Money cannot buy me. Governments cannot silence me and hell cannot handle me. I am a soldier. Even death cannot destroy me. For when my Commander calls me from this battlefield, He will promote me and then allow me to rule alongside of Him as a daughter of Christ. I am a soldier in the army and I’m marching claiming victory. I will not give up. I will not turn around. I am a soldier, a lady, marching heaven-bound.

Here I stand! Will you stand with me?
