12 Inspiring Quotes for our Brave Soldiers and Fallen Heroes

  1. “It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” – Robert F. Kennedy
  2. “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”—Joseph Campbell
  3. “We sleep safely at night because rough men stand ready to visit violence on those who would harm us”. —Winston Churchill
  4. “Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
  5. ” It doesn’t take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle.” – H. Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr.
  6. “Whoever said the pen is mightier than the sword obviously never encountered automatic weapons.” —Douglas MacArthur
  7. “The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.” —Patrick Henry
  8. “Live for something rather than die for nothing.” —George Patton
  9. “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
  10. The soldier is the Army. No army is better than its soldiers. The Soldier is also a citizen. In fact, the highest obligation and privilege of citizenship is that of bearing arms for one’s country.” —George S. Patton Jr
  11. “Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.” – Billy Graham
  12. The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.”– Douglas MacArthur

The Door of Opportunity is Open

The Door of Opportunity is before you. God has opened for you.  But there are adversaries. Will you look at the adversaries or will you look at God’s promise to you?

I know your [record of] works and what you are doing. See! I have set before you a door wide open which no one is able to shut; I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept My Word and guarded My message and have not renounced or denied My name. -Revelation 3:8 AMP

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” ― Winston Churchill

For a wide door of opportunity for effectual [service] has opened to me [there, a great and promising one], and [there are] many adversaries. – 1 Corinthians 16:9 AMP

“Not knowing when the dawn will come I open every door.” ― Emily Dickinson, The Complete Poems

“We often miss opportunity because it’s dressed in overalls and looks like work” ― Thomas A. Edison

MY PRAYER FOR YOU:

Dear Lord,

Open our eyes to the open doors. Let us not see the adversaries or the wall of resistance, but let us get up and walk through the door of opportunity.  God you gave us these promises. We choose to believe You and Your Word more than what we see.  Let us put on our overalls and go to work. We are the Light of the World and the Salt of the Earth. Let us stop looking at our enemies and get to work doing what You have called us to do on this Earth.
