Deuteronomy 31:8 Don’t be afraid, for the Lord will go before you and will be with you; he will not fail nor forsake you.
My mother needed to downsize to a smaller apartment and several of the boxes were stored at my home. I started going through the boxes and found the Bible my dad carried with him every day during WWII. I remember hearing about this Bible but never saw it. The size is small, three inches by four and a half inches. It states on the inside cover “A Bible for Victory-Heart-Covered Pocket size New Testament with gold plated Steel Cover.” There is no “Hollywood Movie” about the Bible’s gold-plated steel cover that saved his life from an enemy bullet. But, there is the faith, hope and trust in Jesus my dad had every day of the war from reading this small Bible and keeping it close to his heart.
Dear Lord, please be with the all our troops as they protect our country. Bring them home safely to their families. Bless our country as we celebrate them.
