I have lived too long with those who hate peace. I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war. . .Psalm 120:6-7
Sweet child of War, A victim of corruption and misused power Held in caring hands of a weary soldier, too tired to weep
He holds this sweet child in the safety of his arms, soothing her fear with the strength of his courage, His soldiers heart breathes compassion! How can you call him uncaring?
This is the face of war.
Wary soldiers who have not forgotten, how small and helpless a child is, how cold and cruel the world can be! He cradles her gently in his arms, daring the enemy to try to harm her! His comrades march behind him, Angered by the Innocent victims of this battle;
this is the face of war.
Shown in the heart of one who battles, the injustice of the world, what will he see in his dreams tonight? What does he feel in his heart?
Look at the face of war! See the sweet tenderness in his comforting, of this child today!
Oh brave Knight! Our prayers go with you in every step; our hearts are with you as you rise each morning, how deeply my heart is tore!
To see you sitting there, where you should not have to be, the pride and hope in my heart swells, as I see your compassion for this child. You have taught us to see in stark reality, the truth behind their lies; this is more powerful than shattered lives, and gruesome gore!
The bittersweet compassion, in the armored heart of our soldiers! The devastation and horror, in the sad and innocent,
Face of war
OH LORD, how I marvel that man was created in YOUR IMAGE...with compassion being a strength that few know. I thank YOU for this gift in the hearts of our brave men and women. Dear LORD, bless those who carry the burden of sorrow so deep. Thank YOU, JESUS, that YOU offer comfort for YOU invite all to come to YOU who are weary and heavy laden and YOU WILL GIVE THEM REST. May YOU draw them to succumb to YOUR GENTLE RELIEF and HEALING GRACE. Amen.
Please join me in Prayer for our brave men and women. I thank all of you in advance for lifting them up this day...Jean
From Afghanistan, thank you.
Please pray for the end of Sequestration. The damage it is doing to the military is real and deep. I know that is not a popular subject around here, but it is the truth. Trust me on this.
Deborah Kendrick loves to attend Broadway musicals even though she is blind and always struggles to understand the setting and the movements of the characters onstage. Recently, however, she attended a play that used D-Scriptive, a new technology that conveys the visual elements of the stage production through a small FM receiver. A recorded narration, keyed to the shows light and sound boards, describes the set and the action as it unfolds onstage. Writing in The Columbus Dispatch, Deborah said, If you ask me if I saw a show last week in New York, my answer is yes . . . I genuinely, unequivocally mean that I saw the show.
Her experience struck me as a vivid illustration of the Holy Spirits role in our understanding of Gods Word. Just before Jesus went to the cross, He told His followers that the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you (John 14:26).
As we open the Bible to read or study, the Spirit of Truth is with us to guide us into all truth (16:13). On our own we are blind, but through the guidance of Gods Holy Spirit we can see.
Read: John 14:15-27
