Bless the Fallen (Memorial Day 2021)

I bless the fallen on this Memorial Day 2021.God bless America and let freedom continue to be her portion!

I bless the fallen. I bless the fallen, who have died and sacrificed for this great nation of America on the Memorial Day 2021. 

Even though I do not know of any marine, army man or person in the navy, who has died to save America and protect Her freedoms that our fathers died for, I bless the friends and families of those, who have died for America to preserve Her.  

~”The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.”~Numbers 6:24-26, English Standard Version~ 

Many people in this country take the freedoms that they have for granted, such as being able to take walks in the park openly, talk freely about issues and matters on the Internet about concerns that the person has regarding this country and other matters and being able to eat out in public restaurants and cafes.  

For me, I take the freedom of praying and worshipping in church in public for granted and do not stop to think about why I even have this freedom to pray and worship in public: it is because of the fallen, who I bless today. 

I know that there are families out there, who miss their loved ones that died in battles overseas and wonder to God why He allowed for their death to take place. Even though the death of the loved one was very sad, it was for gain for eternity’s sake so that freedom in America can take place on earth as it is in Heaven. Freedom in Christ is a part of the plan of the will of God for every person on this earth and for those who go into Heaven in the next life. 

~”For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.”~Philippians 1:21, New International Version~ 

~”Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”~Matthew 6:9b-10, King James Version~ 

I remember and bless the fallen on this Memorial Day 2021. I remember the fallen not only because I am free to go to church to pray and worship in public and to fellowship with my brothers and sisters in the Lord together, but because I am free in Christ Jesus to share His Word with those who do not know Him and encourage those who do know Him as their Lord and Savior.  

I am free in Christ Jesus to walk. I am free in Christ Jesus to run, skip and twirl a victory dance in the streets because of the fallen. I am free in Christ Jesus to share a meal with a close brother or sister in the Lord because of the fallen. I am eternally grateful for the freedom that I have in this country because of the fallen. 

~”So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”~John 8:36, New International Version~ 

I bless the fallen. I bless the fallen. God bless America and may all of America bless God because of the fallen. Amen.
