We Remember

Psalm 46:8-10

“Come, behold the works of the LORD,

how he has brought desolations on the earth.

He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;

he breaks the bow and shatters the spear;

he burns the chariots with fire.

“Be still, and know that I am God.

I will be exalted among the nations,

I will be exalted in the earth!”

In honor of my dad who served in Vietnam, my late father-in-law who served during the Korean War, and all of of our men and women who have served or are currently serving in the military, here is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman called “We Remember”.

"We Remember"

This is for the ones who heard the fight for freedom calling

For the ones who answered, "I'll do what I can"

For the ones who ran to battle, Who believed that freedom mattered

Oh this is for you

And this is for the ones whose orders took them to the front lines

For the ones who fell and never made it home

For the ones who came back broken, With memories too hard to be spoken

Oh this is for you

We remember, We remember, We are thankful, We are grateful

We know freedom isn't free, We remember, We remember

The gift you gave, The price you paid

Is not in vain, And it will never be forgotten

'Cause we remember

And this is for the ones whose war is wondering and waiting

For the moms and dads and families back at home

Those with pictures by their beds, Who had to learn to live again

Oh this is for you

We remember, We remember, We are thankful, We are grateful

We know freedom isn't free, We remember, We remember

Every time we chase our dreams, Or pray out loud, Speak our minds

And even when we disagree, Oh we remember

And though sometimes we've lost our way

We're still the land of the free and the home of the brave

Questions to Consider

Do you know a veteran you could reach out to today? Do they know the ultimate and eternal peace that Jesus offers? What does God’s war-ceasing presence say about His character?


LORD, we are truly blessed to live in this great nation and we know that our national security comes at a great price from the women and men who serve our nation. We pray for them and especially for believers who shine your light in the armed forces. We long for the ultimate peace that You will bring on this earth and know that our current turmoil will not always be reality. May we be grateful for the freedoms we enjoy and may we never take these for granted. Amen.
