Reflection from Nina Laird-Fusilli
Semper Fi is the phrase the Marine Corps use as it is translated “always faithful.”
In the line of duty marines are trained to exemplify never-ending loyalty to protect and serve.
This is our Heavenly Father, Always Faithful! He will always be there, no matter what. Unlike the Marines, our Lord is not limited by being in a human body.
There is nothing, NOTHING Jesus cannot do. He is a wonder working God!
He asks us to come to Him with ALL our problems, BIG and small and He will get the job done. We do not have to be ashamed and unworthy. It is the blood of Jesus that placed us in the front row, at the foot of the cross!
It is not by our efforts, it is by God’s grace!
Just ask Him and He will “perfect that which concerns you.”
None of us are worthy, not one. But we are accepted into the Beloved by the Spotless Lamb. Our Lord Jesus. So come boldly before the throne and accept the inheritance of our Father!
Indeed @Eric God is fighting our battles. The loneliness, struggles, pain and setbacks, give it to God. Everything that life throws at us, surrender it to God. The heaviness that we’re feeling, lift it all to God. Rest in victory, he’s got another wins coming for us.
“You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you” (2 Chronicles 20:17)
Hello, dear @Eric
Nice reflection there by Nina, I love how she express her feelings. I have accustomed to to share them with my family during dinner, as it’s always a good way to start reflection to ourselves.
I think something that we need to accept is that life is not fair, not because of the Lord, but because we live by sin, the Lord is the one who makes life worth living! With him everything’s is possible. Imagine if we followed his commandments and lived by love, then life would be fair and all would find the path God wants for us, full of happiness.
Kind regards, Luis Guerrero.
True, life will be one hard journey, but it does not mean that God s nowhere to be found. He gives us challenges that He knows we can overcome as long as we trust Him. We are not alone, He is with us. Life is better when we work hand in hand with the Lord God.
