On this Memorial Day weekend I would like to show my appreciation to all those who have served and died. But first I would like to tell you who I am.
I was born out of hardship. I fought against those who were abusive to me. Out of this fight, in victory, I became something great. I have made mistakes, but the good I have done is overwhelming. I have shed blood for people I have never met. I have taken people into my house who were abused and mistreated in their own house. I have been overwhelmingly charitable, even to those who have berated and demeaned me. I have come to the aid of many who were strangers to me when no one else would. Once liberated from those who abused me I built a foundation in the word of the God of Israel and his Son Jesus. During times when I should have been killed, "He" has come to beat back my enemies. I am honorable, trustworthy, and the wisest of all. I have compassion and empathy for those who are less fortunate.
Now, I am tired. There are some in my own house that seek to destroy me and all the foundations that made me what I am. Those who stand by my side, fight against them. It has been a continual assault. I am getting weak, but my heart is strong, as is the heart of those who stand with me.
But it is alway's when I feel like this, that "He" comes to give me strength. A strength that my enemies from within my house and outside can not equal. In the end I will be victorious because of the very foundations they seek to destroy. I say to those who are worried about me, fear not, for if God stands with me, who can stand against me. I thank, with all my heart, all those who have fought for the things I stand for. God will bless them greatly. So, who am I?
