Making a Stand

It takes courage to stand up to those that oppose our freedom. Paul demonstrates courage in standing up to the negative ways of the world during his time. He was devoted to being a servant of Christ even when in danger, imprisonment, & facing tremendous pressure.

Step Ahead

It takes courage to make a stand against those that oppose our freedom. Below is a picture my daughter took when she went to Washing ton D. C. on a class trip years ago. It’s a photo of the United States Marine Corps War Memorial inspired by the iconic photo of the soldiers raising the flag on Iwo Jima on February 23, 1945.

There are going to be
Hard times faced in life
But making a stand
Frees you from strife.

Be a courageous
Servant for Christ
And oppose those who
Are pulling a heist.

The power of the
Holy Spirit inside
Will help to step ahead
And not be terrified.

Make a stand with courage
To those who oppose
With God’s perfect way
And power it bestows.

Let’ work together
As God’s angel army
To provide safety
For you and me.
