in the battle

A few weeks ago, we honored those who have fought battles for us. Those heroes and their families who have made sacrifices we will never fully understand, to protect our freedoms and secure our safety.

We humbly and gratefully say THANK YOU!

In big and small ways, far and near, the harsh reality is the battle rages on. Challenges, heartaches, unexpected “curve balls,” the enemy of our souls who lurks at every corner – a myriad of things that can threaten to overwhelm us. Life in this world leaves us vulnerable. We need Someone who will protect and defend us.

What peace and comfort washes over me to read the verses in today’s breakfast psalm 🌿, reassuring me that my Savior is the very Author of salvation! He has already won the greatest victory over death … for me. He will never leave my side and faithfully takes on every battle to protect and defend me. Because of Him, I am never without hope or security.
