No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you (NIV)
As a soldier, I fought to defend our freedoms and as a civilian, I support the blue. The complexity being that our freedoms sometimes kill those that protect us. Is there any easy answer? Maybe in knowing that even when we do not understand those mysterious ways, we are not alone nor are we forsaken.
This old song by James Taylor, if you think of God as the object, then it fits…..
When you’re down and troubled and you need a helping hand
And nothing, whoa, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me and soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest nights
You just call out my name
And you know where ever I am
I’ll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer, or fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there, yeah, yeah
You’ve got a friend
