Get marching soldier…

Day 232

I am stressed out over my job, or lack of a job.  I am stressed out over the economy, and the election. I am also worried about the weather, and how I am going to make house payment.

I am also stressed about the election, and oh well….a whole bunch of other stuff.

You know, I am thinking…the ONLY thing that I don’t seemed stressed about is how I am serving the Lord!  And how am I “following” God’s will that I so desperately want to “know.”  Isn’t that sadly hilarious?  Oh Lord….show me your will.  Okay Dan….here it is….now do it…now.

Oh Lord….can You show me something else?  If You will just show me something something that I can do to follow You and proclaim Your Kingdom.  But if you don’t mind…can I do it between 8:00-8:30 on Saturday?  But not this Saturday, because I have golf scheduled.  Actually, Lord, if You don’t mind…can I do something for You next week, because I am going to the beach for the 4th time this summer.  Can I do it at the beach? Or how about after the World Series are over….I have been praying for the NATS to make it all the way this year…. Sound familiar?

We are so tied up in the world…that we really don’t have time for God.  We TALK about it…but we don’t actually want to DO it.  God floored me the other day with this verse….

2 Timothy 2:4 – No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier. (NASB)

Uh-oh….well….who signed me up as  soldier?  God did!!!….from the moment that you were conceived….

So be encouraged….you have the chance to be a hero. You want to be famous?  You want to be known for eternity?  You CAN….and you WILL if you are doing God’s will.  And if you will march when He says march.  And for you Army guys….HOAAH.

Grace and Peace, Dan



About Dan

My name is Dan. I grew up on the lovely Eastern Shore of Maryland...go Colonels! God really got a hold of me a few years back and asked me when I was going to "get in the game" and start living my life for Him. I have been burdened with the fact that many...many men in our world are wasting their lives while God wants them in the game. This is one of the ways that I am giving them that challenge...our nation, and our world depends on it. So thanks for your support...and your prayers. Dan
