I Am A Soldier
Author Unknown

I am a soldier in the army of my God.  The Lord Jesus Christ is my commanding
officer. The Holy Bible is my code of conduct. Faith, prayer, and The Word are my
weapons of warfare. I have been taught by the Holy Spirit, trained by experience,
tried by adversity and tested by fire. I am a volunteer in this army, and I am enlisted
for all eternity. I will either retire in this army at the rapture or die in this army; but I
will not get out, sell out, be talked out, or pushed out. I am faithful, reliable, capable
and dependable. If my God needs me, I am there. If He needs me in the Sunday
school to teach the children, work with the youth, help adults or just sit and learn.
He can use me because I am there!!  I am a soldier.

I am not a baby. I do not need to be pampered, petted, primed up, pumped up,
picked up or pepped up.  I do not need to be cuddled, cradled, cared for, or catered
to. I am a soldier.

No one has to call me, remind me, write me, visit me, entice me, or lure me. I am a
soldier.  I am not wimp. I am in place, saluting my King, obeying His orders, praising
His name, and building His Kingdom!  No one has to send me flowers, gifts, food,
cards, candy, or give me handouts.

I am committed. I cannot have my feelings hurt bad enough to turn me around.  I
cannot be discouraged enough to turn me aside. I cannot lose enough to cause me to
quit. When Jesus called me into this army, I had nothing. If I end up with nothing, I
still come out ahead.  I will win because I am a soldier.  My God has and will
continue to supply all my needs.  I am more than a conqueror. I will always triumph. I
can do all things through Christ.

Devils cannot defeat me. People cannot disillusion me. Weather cannot weary me
and sickness cannot stop me.  Battles cannot beat me.  Money cannot buy me.
Governments cannot silence me and hell cannot handle me.  I am a soldier.

Even death cannot destroy me. For when my commander calls me from this
battlefield, He will promote me to a Captain and then allow me to rule with Him. I
am a soldier in the army, and Iím marching claiming victory.  I will not give up. I will
not turn around. I am a soldier, marching heaven bound.  Here I stand!
