I Am a Soldier in the Army of the Lord

I am a soldier in the Army of my God.
The lord Jesus Christ is my Commander-in Chief.
My church leaders are my superior officers.
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,
Tired by adversity
And tested by fire.
I am a volunteer in this Army,
And I am enlisted for Eternity.
I will either retire in this Army at the Rapture
Or die doing my duty to this Army;
But I will not get out,
Sell out,
Be talked out,
Or pushed out

By the grace of God,
I am faithful,
And dependable
If my God commands 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 Solider. 
I am not a baby.
I do not need to be pampered,
Primed up,
Pumped up
Picked up
Or pepped up

I am a Solider.
No one has to phone me,
Remind me,
Write me,
Visit me,
Entice me,
Or lure me,
I am a Solider.

I am not a wimp.
I am in place, 
Saluting my king, 
Obeying my orders,
Praising His Name,
And doing battle for His Kingdom!
No has to send me flowers, 
Gifts, food,
cards, candy.
Or give me handouts, 
I do not need to be cuddled. 
Or catered to, 
I am committed. 

I cannot have my feelings hurt
Bad enough to turn me around.
I can not be discouraged enough to turn me aside.
I can not lose enough to cause me to quit.

When Jesus called me into His Army, 
I had nothing spiritually. 
If i end up with nothing physically, 
I will still come out ahead.
I WIN...

My God has and will continue 
To supply all of my needs.
I am more than a conqueror. 
I will triumph ultimately.
I can do all things through Christ. 

The devil cannot defeat me.
People can not disillusion me. 
Weather cannot weary me.
Sickness cannot discourage me.
Money cannot buy me.
Governments cannot silence me
And Hell cannot handle me.
I am a Solider. 

Even death cannot destroy me.
For when my commander
Calls me from the battle field, 
He will promote me to Captain
And then allow me to rule with Him.
I am a solider in the Army, 
And I'm Marching Heaven bound. 
Here I stand! 
Will you stand with me?
Will you enlist by trusting Jesus Christ as
your Lord & Savior?
If you already have, be sure you are
reporting to your Commander
with a " Here am I, send me, Sir!
