God created us and He loves us. Even though God is love, our sinful nature often creates situations that cause pain and grief instead of peace and love. When we experience these types of painful situations or reflect on and remember the pain that was experienced by ourselves or others, we can be reminded that God offers a solution. God shows us love and He can both heal us and teach us how to live differently. We can remember what God and those that came before us have given us. We can bow in prayer and worship of God, the Lord our Maker, to show our reverence to God and our thankfulness for those who sacrificed for us.
Bow down in prayer and worship of God to show your thankfulness for those who sacrifice for freedom.
Thank You for those that You have placed here to defend freedom and to offer protection. Help me to live in a way that shows Your love and peace and not in a way that causes pain and grief. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
