Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses it will save it. Luke 17:33

Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses it will save it. Luke 17:33

Wisdom 13:1-9, Psalm 19 & Luke 17:26-37

Our LORD has a special way of protecting those who lose their life for the cause of protecting their God-given rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. While men and women who join the military lose their life to protecting others, anyone can find His Spirit Driven Life in Christ if they are or become Christian Soldiers. What we surrender to Him will protect us in life and in death. The feeling of leaving one’s family, home and country to serve the military as various capacitates of freedom protecting American’s brings strong emotions to the men and women of our Armed Forces. Emotions of losing one’s life for a cause of freedom bring a willingness to die for the right to be free.

I’ll never forget the feeling of being tucked away in a bunk no bigger than a sleeping bag in nights that seemed at the time to go on forever and ever. The muffling sounds of a 325-foot US Naval Fast Frigate moving through the South China Sea soothed your exhausted body from 12 hours on/off rotations. I would read the Bible and toss it in the corner like an old book in a kindergarten classroom. His Word had no meaning but I identified with the feeling of surrender giving my all for freedom’s warm embrace. When I reflect on my selfishness in the Navy, I draw closer the LORD by keeping close to His Word celebrating His Son’s Eternal Redemption.

Today I kiss the Bible if it falls on the floor and I use it to grow in His freedom from sin. No longer does the Word of God become a tossed in the corner or put on a coffee table relic but a vibrant cause to understand God’s Will. In brevity in word I write of a life lost in His Truth to serve the LORD’s Will. In fullness of my love for God I honor our Veterans everyday in prayer as they serve in every capacity of active duty or completed duty. We have helped keep America free to love and serve the LORD. His Blessing is bestowed on those who believe. Share your love of loving Christ and find His blessing too. Amen.

So we ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today as we do everyday for our men and women serving in the US military. We pray to lose our lives to living Your Truth. We pray LORD You will give us a Spirit Driven Life in Christ to always have courage to live as Your Christian Soldier. We say a prayer of thanksgiving for Peter Fusco’s love of You LORD. Bless him and keep him safe. We pray for Andy Nezbith to receive the donor he needs for a new kidney. We pray for a friend of a friend named Kyle who has leukemia. We pray for a young boy named Christian who is battling brain tumors. We pray for the children of the world. We pray for Prayer Points and the need for people everywhere to be thankful to Your mercy. We pray for LIFE FM and its ability to reach countless people to share Your Son’s Gospel. We pray this in the Name of Christ Jesus. Amen.

God Bless His Truth for America,

Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

America’s Veterans Love for God and Country Our Honor- Luke 17:33

Lost for His Truth is something absolute

Protection from fear of death rest on your breath

Especially those who lose their life from what they choose

The military of God’s might will die for His Eternal right to lose

Our military’s fright comes a willingness to die

Not afraid of choosing God’s Eternal freedom ride

A right to be free is His Way of losing your excuse

Not needing to selfishly live in sin of Satan’s evil abuse

We stand on the Word of God in respect and model

Living in its Truth to pray for those who bother

To serve our country’s might in dignity fighting dishonor

Keeping God’s Truth free for all who fight for the Father

America’s Veterans Love for God and Country Our Honor

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
