Request for Transfer by Battle Weary Soldier

  1. Request for Transfer by Battle Weary Soldier


    REQUEST FOR TRANSFER, BATTLE HEATING UP...

    TO: Commander and Chief Spiritual Armed Forces, JESUS CHRIST

    Dear Lord,
    I am writing this to You to request a transfer to a desk job.

    I herewith present my reasons:

    I began my career as a private, because of the intensity of the battle You have quickly moved me up in the ranks. You have made me an officer and given me a tremendous amount of responsibility. There are many soldiers and recruits under my charge. I am constantly being called upon to dispense wisdom, make judgments, and find solutions to complex problems. You have placed me in a position to function as an officer, when in my heart I know I have only the skills of a private. I realize that You have promised to supply all I would need for the battle.

    But Sir, I must present You a realistic picture of my equipment. My uniform, once so crisp and starched, is now stained with tears and blood of those I have tried to assist. The soles of my boots are cracked and worn from the miles I have walked trying to enlist and encourage the instructed troops. My weapons are marred, tarnished and chipped from constant battle against the enemy. Even the Book of Regulations I was issued has been torn and tattered from endless use. The words are now smeared.

    You have promised You would be with me throughout, but when the noise of the battle is so loud and the confusion is so great, I can neither see nor hear You. I feel so alone. I'm tired. I'm discouraged. I have Battle Fatigue.

    I would never ask You for a discharge. I love being in Your service. But I humbly request a demotion and transfer. I'll file papers or clean latrines. Just get me out of the battle -- please, Sir. Thanks for letting me blow off some steam.

    Your Faithful, but tired, Warrior,

    Discouraged Guerrilla


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    To: Faithful, but tired, Soldier, Spiritual Armed Forces

    Location: The Battlefield

    SUBJECT: Transfer

    Dear Discouraged Guerrilla:

    Your request for transfer has been denied. I herewith present My reasons:

    You are needed in this battle. I have selected you, and I will keep My Word to supply your need. You do not need a demotion and transfer. (You'd never cut it on latrine duty.) You need a period of "R&R" -- Renewal and Rekindling. I am setting aside a place on the battlefield that is insulated from all sound and fully protected from the enemy. I will meet you there and I will give you rest. I will remove your old equipment and "make all things new."

    You have been wounded in the battle, My soldier. Your wounds are not visible, but you have received grave internal injuries. You need to be healed. I will heal you. You have been weakened in the battle. You need to be strengthened. I will strengthen you and be your strength. I will instill in you confidence and ability. My Words will rekindle within you and renewed love, zeal and enthusiasm. Report to Me tattered and empty. I will refill you. My Blood is sufficient and never runs out.

    Compassionately,
    Your Commander-in-Chief,

    Jesus Christ

    The harvest truly is plenteous but the laborers are few.

  2. Thank you that was great.
    Is it not how it is at times, just when we think it is too much the Lord steps in and renews and revitalizes us.

    Phil 4:13 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.(NASB)
     
  3. Great reminder, the battle belongs to the Lord. He really is the Commander-in-Chief.

    Isaiah 40:27-31
    27 O Israel, how can you say the Lord does not see your troubles? How can you say God refuses to hear your case?
    28 Have you never heard or understood? Don't you know that the Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth? He never grows faint or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding.
    29 He gives power to those who are tired and worn out; he offers strength to the weak.
    30 Even youths will become exhausted, and young men will give up.
    31 But those who wait on the Lord will find new strength. They will fly high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
     
  4. That was beautiful!! I cried reading this!! God Bless you!
     
  5. Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.

    Galatians 6:9

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    And He was saying to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest".

    LUKE 10:2 Jesus

    vlooi
     
  7. Didn't want to read this because of the title

    I'm glad I did and just when I was ready.

    Thank you

    God Bless
     
  8. I read this again today via an email I received during the week. Just the words and encouragement I needed.

    We all need to go to the quite place to recharge with God's strenght daily.
     
  9. Made me cry....beautiful. The protection of his blood never runs out. Thank you for posting this.
     
  10. The timing of this read was really close to how I feel. The battle wages on and I have been in it 21 years.

    I have to say in the 21 years I have also seen many victories and have been blessed.

    In saying this I know when I feel like that weary warrier, that I have to bring to rememberance the victories. The Word says we live by the word of our testimony. I have to keep them fresh in my mind.

    I pray this night for all who are weary in well doing, that the Lord would refresh each and everyone of us. He will pour down His Holy Spirit and give us the peace of His son Jesus. In Jesus name, amen and amen
