I AM A SOLDIER IN GOD’S ARMY
(Author Unknown)

I am a soldier in the Army of my God. The Lord Jesus Christ is my Commanding Officer. The Holy Bible is my code of conduct. Faith, prayer, and the Word are my weapons of warfare.

I have been taught by the Holy Spirit, Trained by experience, Tried by adversity And tested by fire. I was chosen for this Army, And I am involved for Eternity.

I will either retire in this Army at the Rapture Or die in this Army; But I will not get out, Sell out, Be talked out, Or pushed out.

I am faithful, Reliable, Capable And dependable.

If my God needs me, I am there. If He needs me in the Sunday School, To teach the children, Work with the youth, Help adults Or just sit and learn. He can use me because I am there! I am a soldier.

I am not a baby. I do not need to be pampered, Petted, Primed up, Pumped up, Picked up Or pepped up. I am a soldier.

No one has to call me, Remind me, Write me, Visit me, Entice me, Or lure me. I am a soldier.

I am not a wimp. I am in place, Saluting my King, Obeying His orders, Praising His name, And building His kingdom! No one has to send me flowers, Gifts, food, cards, candy Or give me handouts. I do not need to be cuddled, Cradled, Cared for, or catered to. I am committed.

I cannot have my feelings hurt Bad enough to turn me around. I cannot be discouraged enough To turn me aside. I cannot lose enough To cause me to quit.

When Jesus called me into His Army, I had nothing. If I end up with nothing, I will still come out ahead. I will win. My God has and will continue To supply all of my needs. I am more than a conqueror. I will always triumph. I can do all things through Christ.

Demons cannot defeat me. People cannot disillusion me. Weather cannot weary me. Sickness cannot stop me. Battles cannot beat me. Money cannot buy me. Governments cannot silence me And Hell cannot handle me. I am a soldier.

Even death cannot destroy me. For when my Commander Calls me from this battlefield, He will show death who's in charge. I am a soldier in the Army, And I'm marching claiming victory. I will not give up. I will not turn around. I am a soldier,marching Heaven bound. Here I stand! Will you stand with me?

Guess what? If God has called you by the Gospel to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior you are NOW in the LORD’S army, WOW!
