My heart aches when I think of the men and women who’ve given their lives in service to this country over the years. Be with those who’ve lost loved ones in defense of the freedoms we now enjoy. God we complain about so many things as if nothing is happening in our country, yet listening to the news makes my blood run cold. Lord, we know it’s not about being black, white, or hispanic. We know it’s not about being a gang member, a cop or a criminal…or all of those things. Your Word tells us we battle the powers and principalities of the heavens, good and evil, praise Your Name we know who the Victor will be. Lord Your children will lift You up in all honor, praise and glory on this Memorial Day weekend. May our hearts be mindful of the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus Christ made on the cross that we might know true freedom. It’s in His name and for His sake I pray. Amen.
