In the Lord’s Army #SDG Connections

I never thought it would happen, but I have finally gotten used to it. Sort of.

I check the clock, certain that at least six hours have passed. But it has only been three minutes. Sigh.

I make plans, but I always write in pencil. Sigh again.

My heart no longer jumps into my throat every time the phone rings. Sigh. (Do you see a pattern here?)

Yes. I am Jesus lover AND an army wife. And just because I say I have gotten USED to this call, it doesn’t mean it is easy.

Lords Army SDGDon’t get me wrong. I love it…most days. But rocking this army wife life provides more challenges, more new experiences and more Jesus-if-you-stretch-me-any-farther-I-am-totally-going-to-break-and-or-eat-all-the-chocolate-within-a-five-mile-radius moments than I ever anticipated.

And we recently had one of those “moments” in our little infantry family.

It was an adventurous, life-changing moment that we will never forget. I am so very blessed to share it over at my good friend Jen’s place with Soli Deo Gloria Connections. Pop on over there to keep reading.

Also consider this: Where have you witnessed God meet your needs (big or small) in ways that grew your faith? We always love to hear from you. Leave a comment below.

Sweet readers, remember that we don’t have to wear the uniform to serve in the army. All of us, married to the military or otherwise, have the opportunity serve in the Lord’s army.

And trust me. He is the one Commander whose Battle Plan will never, ever fail.

For His Glory,

  1. Your words are always such an encouragement to me. And this was a mighty post. First of all, I am so sorry to hear about the miscarriage. I mourn with you and Brandon over that loss. Even though it happened a while ago, I’m sure there will always be a part of your heart that feels the grief. But, I know that both of you also celebrate the fact that that dear child is now with the Lord. Secondly, I am always so inspired by your testimony of faith. I appreciate your honesty, as you always present the truth. Sometimes ugly, sometimes messy, but always strong. Your testimony encourages me to press on.

    The Lord has met my needs more than ever since I moved to the mountains. I have faced more *issues* since living here – loneliness, boredom, lack of purpose, discouragement. But, God has taught me more about Himself, and I am more sure of His faith-full presence than ever. That is a blessing.

    Onward Christian Sister Soldier – may we continue to fight strong as we lay claim to the victory that Jesus has already won!!

    • Thanks for your kind words, Sharon. Really we don’t feel much pain and grief anymore, but a sweet yearning for heaven and gratitude for how God used that hard situation for His good (as He always does!)

      Keep calm and Jesus soldier on 🙂
