And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
I wanted to present this verse today for Memorial Day. Being a disabled Marine veteran, I understand what every generation of service members have and will go through. The struggles, the loss of friendships and family and sometimes the loss of faith. I have been there, I have lost many friends, but what gave me my strength was knowing God’s will was at work. Why I can relate this verse to my military service is because it takes a specail type of person now of days in our society that does not confirm with the rest. These people are willing to give their lives for not only their country, but for many people that do not know them. In many cases, not even like them. But always remember during your trails and tribulations, that God’s will is perfect. Everything good or bad is in his plans for you. If it is learning how to grieve a loss to help others in their time of need, or if it is simply to put others first before your wants and needs. You will be rewarded for not conforming to this world. God bless all the veterans out there, not just today, but everyday!
