Rescue on the High Seas

[…]for other possible pirate attacks. While I didn’t always have time for a nap, I did have time to pray–and that’s what I did whenever I felt exhausted, frustrated, or doubtful about the future. In my need I turned back to God for help, and His encouragement was the same every time, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.” It was enough for me, and I felt God’s presence as much as I ever had before. The “Alabama Eighteen” group of technicians, specialists, and other sailors carried out their duties with uncompromising professionalism and diligence, manning their weapons […]

Whose Arm Doth Reach

[…]floor Dive with our men beneath the sea Traverse the depths protectively Lord, hear us when we pray and keep Them safe from peril in the deep. Its hauntingly beautiful melody gave me my first inkling of the risks involved in sea service. The second was when Dad began taking us to the aquarium…where it first occurred to me that there were places in the ocean so dark that the creatures living there possessed their own bioluminescence as a substitute for sunlight.… We learned that there were many strange creatures in the deepest, uncharted parts of the ocean where no […]

We Honor Them

[…]We then entered the plane, moved to the flag-draped transfer cases, and the chaplain offered a prayer. The Commander and I then returned, in step, to the tarmac where the Army Honor Guard was waiting. As we all stood at attention, the Honor Guard moved to lift each case. At this time the Commander and I saluted (ceremoniously-a slow, three-second move) as they moved the case to the open doors of the hearse. We did this for each soldier being honored. Then one last salute as the hearse started to drive away. We all then followed, in step, the slow […]

by Karen L. Martin May Jehovah, the great God of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control, bless you with His LOVE-and with each of these attributes that will strengthen you and touch the lives of everyone you meet. JOY… when emails or phone calls are late in coming, and when birthdays or anniversaries are forgotten. PEACE… in the midst of complaining children and crashing computers.  PATIENCE… when people let you down. KINDNESS… when your husband gets promoted, but your friends do not. GOODNESS… when the commander’s spouse calls at the last minute for help with a […]

Lead Your Child to Christ

[…]be received if salvation is to be possessed. Remember, do not force a decision. Ask the child to pray out loud in her own words. Give her some things she could say if she seems unsure. Now be prepared for a blessing! (It is best to void having the child repeat a memorized payer after you. Let her think, and make it personal.)* After salvation has occurred, pray for her out loud. There is a good way to pronounce a blessing on her. 4. Lead your child into assurance. 5. Show him that he will have to keep his relationship […]

Home Front Holidays

[…]yes. As families who have faced this holiday scenario, here are a few lessons we learned: 1. Pray, pray, pray. Pray that the Lord will sustain you and that your heart will be drawn to your Savior and your spouse in a new way. Pray for all of the deployed service men and women, and for their families. Search the Scriptures and claim God’s promises for your children, your spouse, and yourself. 2. Be realistic about what you can do. A perfectly planned and executed holiday does not automatically make it a happy one. Do your best to make it […]

War Eagle, Iraq

[…]guard our steps as we seek to do the right thing (Psalm 91:5). b) It’s always a good thing to pray with the knowledge that the Lord hears the prayers of the righteous, casting all our cares upon Him because He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7). The prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective (James 5:16). c) Always wear your Kevlar with the Helmet of Salvation (Ephesians 6:17). P.S. The soldier recovered well and attended the next chapel […]
