military. prayer. chaplaincy.

I would love to be a Chaplain in the US Army.  I still think about it everyday.  Not sure why I didn’t make it.  I heard from the recruiter a few months back.  I still can be one.  But I need 6 more hours of seminary to make it happen.  I have a little over 4 years to get it done.  I know God has a plan… He has a reason why I didn’t become one.  My heart is still very tender over it.  Kind of breaks when I spend too much time thinking about it.  Who knows maybe he has something else that He has been preparing all along anyway.  I still think about it none-the-less.  I may not be wearing the uniform serving our country the way I would like to be.  So I will serve my country anyway… a little differently.  I’ll serve by praying daily.

I pray each day for Maj. Steven Cantrell (Chaplain), Pvt Todd Trowbridge, and Pvt Steven Scroggins.  I’m proud of you guys!!(Jason you don’t have his name on your blog but Joel seems to think it is Steven so that’s what I’ve been praying since your post.  Let me know if it is different… until I know for sure I still pray for your brother daily.)

Who do you know serving our country that you pray for?  Someone that you would want others to be praying for?

random… sort of but not really

God’s love never quits.  His love endures forever.  His mercies are fresh everyday.  God is my rock, my comforter, and my shield.  He is my help in times of trouble.  He is the Rock that makes me roll.  God’s love never quits. 

How many times have you tried something… and you absolutely loved it for a season then quit… gave up, got bored with it.  God’s love never quits.

God is who He is.  He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.  God never fails.  God loves me.  God loves you.  God’s love never quits.

God has purpose and meaning for all things.  We may not understand it.  But He does.  That’s enough for me.  It’s got to be.  God’s love never quits.  God is eternal.  He is the Alpha and the Omega… the beginning and the end.  He is here.  He is there.  He has always been and always will be.  Love him.  Celebrate Him.  Worship Him.  Put nothing else before Him.

God’s love never quits.  Check out Psalm 118.
