TODAY'S MANNA  for Sunday  May 30, 2021
 
Something to consider when you feel like quitting.   Message from the front: 
 
TO:  Commander and Chief Spiritual Armed Forces,
         Jesus Christ
SUBJECT: Transfer
 
Dear Lord;
      I am writing this to You to request a transfer to a desk job.  I herewith present my reasons:
      I began my career as a private, but because of the intensity of the battle You have quickly moved me up in the ranks.  You have made me an officer and given me a tremendous amount of responsibility.  There are many soldiers and recruits under my charge.  I am constantly being called upon to dispense wisdom, make judgments, and find solutions to complex problems.  You have placed me in a position to function as an officer, when in my heart I know I have only the skills of a private.
  I realize that You have promised to supply all I would need for the battle.   But Sir, I must present You a realistic picture of my equipment.  My uniform, once so crisp and starched, is now stained with the tears and blood of those I have tried to assist.  The soles of my boots are cracked and worn from the miles I have walked trying to enlist, encourage, and instruct troops.  My weapons are marred, tarnished and chipped from constant battle  against the enemy.  Even the Book of Regulations I was issued has been torn and tattered from endless use.  The words are now smeared and now difficult to read at times.   You have promised You would be with me always, but when the noise of the battle is so loud and the confusion is so great, I can neither see nor hear You.  I feel so alone.  I'm tired.  I'm discouraged.  I have Battle Fatigue and PTSD.  I would never ask You for a discharge.  I  love being in Your service.  But I humbly request a demotion and transfer.  I'll file papers or clean latrines (bathrooms).  Just get me out of the battle--please, Sir.
 
                                   Your Faithful, but very tired, Warrior.

To: Faithful, but very tired, Soldier, Spiritual Armed Forces of The Lord God
Location: The Battlefield
SUBJECT: Transfer
 
Dear Soldier:
      Your request for transfer has been denied. 
I  herewith present My reasons:
You are needed in this battle.  I have selected you, and I will keep My Word to supply your every need.  You do not need a demotion and transfer.  I have equipped you and anointed you.  (You'd  never cut it on latrine duty anyway.)  You need a period of "R&R" --Renewal and Rekindling.  I am setting aside a place on the battlefield that is insulated from all sound and fully protected from the enemy. (Psalm 91) I will prepare a table for you in the presence of your enemies. I will anoint your head with oil. (Psalm 23:5)
I will meet you there and I will give you rest.(Matt 11:28)   I will remove your old equipment and "make all things new." (II Cor. 5:17)
      You have been wounded in the battle, My soldier.  Your wounds are not visible, but you have received grave internal injuries.  You need to be healed.  I will heal you.(Matt 12:15)  You have been weakened in the battle.  You need to be strengthened.  I will strengthen you and be your strength.(IICor. 12:9)  I will instill in you confidence and ability.(1John 5:14)  My Words will rekindle within you renewed love, zeal and enthusiasm.(Prov 4:20-22)
    
Wait for me and I shall renew your strength and you will rise up and soar like an eagle. (Isa 40:31)
Report to Me tattered and empty.   I will refill you and refresh you.(Eph 5:18)
 
                                 Compassionately,
                                 Your Commander-in-Chief,
                                  Jesus Christ
