Soldier for Christ

I am not sure as to how God would want me to use this blog for His kingdom but I will give it my best. Today I received an awesome email from a fellow believer and I wanted to share it because I found it to be so powerful. Don't you want to live your life like this? My friend wrote:
I woke up this morning with a sore throat and 4 days left on my health insurance. I had a couple of errands to run and then I was going to go home try to get an appointment at the doctors, then crawl back to bed. My first stop was a day shelter for the homeless. I was dropping off some pastries. As I looked into the eyes of the guests there, some familiar some not, I forgot about my sore throat and found myself telling a friend about how good things were despite being laid off. Then I stopped by the mission to drop off some deodorant I had found on sale along with some clothes. I told some friends there what GOD was doing with my time off and how he continues to provide for my family. By the time I left to go to the unemployment office, crawling back into bed seemed like surrender. (not gonna do it) Today is filled with blessings. As a soldier for Christ I will never be unemployed, but I do have a promise of retirement in paradise PRAISE GOD!
Thanks Rob!
