Wounded Warriors

Lord, I cannot comprehend
The pain our soldiers endure
Or the sacrifice they make
To keep our freedom sure

May You dwell within them
And give them peace of mind
In their injured weakness, Lord
May it be Your strength they find

Draw them close to You
And answer their every doubt
Let them see You always near
Every time they want to shout

Only You know their thoughts
For You were always there
Never forsaking, Love abides
Always present, constant care

Silent heroes, wounded warriors
Ones that carry the pain
So I lift them up to You
To heal and make whole again

Parts of their bodies may be gone
But wholeness comes from within
You can use them, Lord
Just show them how and when

May they seek You daily, Lord
To get through life again
Embrace their hearts and minds
Wounded warriors will fight – and win

***
The enemy is now at hand
Depression, anger and pain
Use your training to face each one
And freedom from them gain

Warriors you will always be
Now fight for a different cause
The battle is the Lord’s…
Think on that and pause

He’s the Commander now
Your Eternal battle was won
The greatest Wounded Warrior
Was Jesus Christ, God’s only Son

He lifted His eyes to God above
When pain was too hard to bear
He, too, thought he was forsaken
But God was always there

Stripes on His Holy back
Blood freely pouring down
He understands your every pain
And memories that cause a frown

He came out victorious
And can give you victory too
Rely on Him my wounded friends
Warriors, each one of you

I pray for courage and strength
To fight the battles ahead
Remember the Lord is near you
“I will never forsake thee!” He said

Only the mother of a military man or woman could write with such heartfelt love and anguish for the ones who are faithfully serving their country. There must be some very lonely times for these dedicated men and women. The news media don't speak nearly enough of their bravery and dedication to their calling. Thanks, Lucy, for sharing this heart-felt poem with us. God bless you....Helen

Outstanding commentary and tribute to the men and women who serve in my/our great Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, and Navy for this great nation--THE United States of America!! May God bless you and God bless and protect them wherever they may be and do for OUR great people as they protect and preserve the freedoms and liberties we so enjoy! Let freedom ring because of the brave!!!
