Soldier Son

Lord knows they need him and others like him.  But, I just wasn't ready for that text. 
It said and I quote, "going to haiti, tonight."


What will you be doing?

How will you get there?

What time do you leave?

I'm a little scared for you.

Can you call me before you leave?

That's it, no more text.  I know they need to be there, Lord they need help.  
And as a warrior Mom, I proud that my son is going to one of the ones there to help.  It just that he is a sweet spirit, kind and generous, loving and as his Mom, I know his heart is going to break.  

So, what's a warrior Mom to do?  Pray.  Pray.  Pray.

And ask for prayer.  Would you?  Add Jeremy and all the people there trying to help, that God will strengthen them, protect them both physically and mentally.  That no weapon formed against them will prosper, that no calamity will cross the threshold of their home, hearts,  or minds.  I thank you Lord Jesus that he is the head and not the tail, I thank you Lord Jesus that you will equip him and all our soldiers and missionary's already there, to be your hands and feet.  I trust you Lord Jesus, that living life with you is the greatest adventure of them all.

I will lift Jeremy in prayer - Father, Be with Jeremy as he ministers to the people in Haiti who have lost their homes, their loved ones, and many their hope. Please keep Jeremy safe and in your protection during this journey. Father, I ask these in your precious Son's name

Love to you during this time.

That' exactly what we will do. We will pray, pray, pray for your sweet Jeremy. That God will use him in a mighty way protecting his mind body and soul as he reaches out his hand to others. I pray that God will comfort you and give you gracious peace while Jeremy is away. Take care dear sister.

Have a blessed day resting in His reassuring arms!!!

I know that one day I will get a call or text like yours, I know that his eyes will be opened, his heart will break.. he has no idea because he is young, full of fire and ready to go! Im proud of my son and yours and will be praying for them both.
