Day 11

día once: Today I am thankful for each person associated with the US Military - past, present, and future. They do brave, remarkable things to protect our freedom every day. Happy Veteran's Day, and thank you.
Dear God, thank You for all of the freedom that we experience as Americans living in the USA. Specifically, thank You for the people who have made that possible and are currently risking their lives to sustain that freedom. That is a true act of putting others before yourself. So selfless, so brave, & so patriotic. God, bless each member of the US Military. Thank You for all the veterans. Heal any disabled veterans physically, & heal them all mentally. Lord, I know being on active duty takes a toll on a person, but You can be the constant peace throughout it all. I pray that You are with each person out there defending our country right now. Protect them and may they somehow feel Your comfort.
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong & courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." -Joshua 1:9
In their most uncertain and scariest of moments, fill them with confidence & strength. Replace any fear & doubt with knowledge that You care for them. Lord, You care for them deeply, and You also care for their loved once left at home. Be with them and also comfort their fears. May they find strength & blessings from You, especially while their loved one(s) is/are away. May they be proud of their soldier & able to warmly welcome them back with a safe return. Lord, the men & women of the military go through things I can't imagine myself lasting through. Thank You for working through them as You do. They are truly heroes. Bless those who fight for us, who have fought for us, & who will fight for us. Thank You for their willingness to serve in so many aspects. Provide for them in a multitude of ways. Amen.
