It is the popular notion that there are no atheists on foxholes.  When a soldier sees mortality in combat he usually thinks of death and the probability of him being next. 

And in these times soldiers are still searching and finding God.  It is just like when somebody sees an impending death or in a bind or crisis, wherever one may be, he sees the importance of prayers and forgiveness.  Don’t you think we always have to thank God everytime we see a bright new day or even when facing a problem, don’t you think we have more blessings to share and thank God for than being obnoxious or loud, digging the past (which we cannot change except learn from it as an opportunity for change) and turn to sin?  Here are some related inspirational verses from the bible…

In Matthew 6:25 and 34, Christ says, “Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear.  Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? … do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

From the Psalm of David Ps 23:1-4, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.  He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.  He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.”

Read more on our CNA link below and gain some insight, and remember to pray for our soldiers too aside from our love ones, as we also pray for peace, mercy and continued guidance.
