The story of a soldier on the frontlines in Ukraine.

My name is ___. 

Once serving the displaced impacted by the war, I am now defending our country. 

Once holding my family and my friends, my brothers and my sisters, I am now fighting for them on the frontlines. 

During the months I have been here I have been reminded of Psalm 90. 

Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. 

In situations where we were under fire, and missiles hit within 5 meters….

A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night. 

Debris flying meters away…

Teach us to number our days, so that we may gain a heart of wisdom. 

But the Lord has always protected me. 

Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.

And now, I understand the power of these words when the world is burning around me. 

Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, for as many years as we have seen trouble.

May your deeds be shown to your servants, you’re splendor to their children.

Christ changed my life for a reason. He has saved me for a purpose. 

I trust in Him. 

May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us, establish the work of our hands for us—
Yes, establish the work of our hands.

“I, like many others I serve with dream of returning home one day, to continue His ministry in our own lives. It is this hope and encouragement that keeps us going, knowing that our service is not in vain.”

The story of a soldier is one of sacrifice, courage, and faith. They are driven by a sense of duty and a desire to protect and serve. Through the trials and tribulations they face, we are thankful they find solace in the words of Psalm 90, knowing that the Lord is their refuge and strength. We all must continue to trust in His unfailing love and find hope in the promise of His eternal plan.
