There must be a vision for service.

     There are so many stories of those who have had crippling handicaps, yet served to the last breath.

     Soldier of The Cross, what about you?  Is your life about you, or is it about taking up The Cross daily and following Him?   We all need to be reminded of the basics all the time.  The reality is,  this world is not your home.

     Clean up your thought life by prayer.
     Clean  up your mouth by prayer.
     Clean up your private habits by prayer.
     Clean up your schedule by prayer.

     Soldier, everything in your life must be brought before Him.  How else can you be transformed?   He will never force Himself on you.  He is always knocking at the door of your heart.  What does it mean to have Him come in and "sup" with you?   Are you interested in that?

     Oh, Soldier!  Please, please consider eternity.

     Come before Him and remind Him you are available for anything and everything He wants with your life.

     You can't say it if you don't mean it.
     Say it aloud.
