With the christmas season coming around everyone is getting ready to celebrate the wonderful birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. This year is going to be very different from last christmas because my father was called to Iraq and won't be here for Christmas. He has been gone since early January this year and won't be back till early Feburary next year.
I am so proud of my father for fighting for his country and accepting this hard trial even thought it isn't what he had in mind for 2009. It has been hard on us to live without him and have him gone for so long, but i can have a peace of mind because i know that my dad is in God's hands and that can't get any better.
So anyway i have been down lately and these verses i found have encouraged me a lot! I hope they are able to encourage you in some way also.
Deuterononmy 31: 6
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear of be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will never leave you or forsake you.
Psalm 121: 1
I life up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
1 Cor. 2: 5
That your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
I would appreciate prayer for my family and especially my father during this hard time. Also that he would continue to be safe over there! Thank you all!
