30 days of thanks 5


As festive Thanksgiving day approach as evenings extend darkness all around us.

I can not help but think about our brave troops all around this gigantic globe we call earth, which God created and left every living thing upon it in man’s hands to care for.

Genesis 1:2, In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

Genesis 1:26- Then God said,” Let us make man I our own image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish and the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps in the earth.” NKJV

Away from loved ones and friends, our beloved brave troops spend their days, weeks, months and years on foreign and domestic grounds ensuring we are able to exist in some form of normality.

I salute the men and women of the armed forces for risking their lives, in order for everyone to enjoy their lives.

I thank their families for standing beside them as they protect us all, but most of all, I am thankful to the Lord for giving them the courage to continue and not allow fear to turn them around.

2 Timothy 1:7 God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and a sound mind. NKJV

I salute you all with honor for a job well done!!!
