I have been deployed overseas for the Army for about 6 months now. I've been kind of down lately with all of the uncertainties in my future and all of the daily obstacles that seem to constantly come at me. I needed something uplifting, so I prayed about it. After praying, it occurred to me that I have not listened to any Christian music like I do back in the states when I'm driving. I went to the Air1 website and turned on the internet radio. "I'm Not Alright" by Sanctus Real came on and it hit me hard. In the midst of deploying and doing my part to ensure my loved ones back home have the freedom to worship God, I have lost sight of him myself. I have been broken inside and hiding behind my daily duties as a soldier. When I take a moment to realize, as the song says, that I have nothing left to hide behind and I am really not that strong. I need to "cling" to Christ and allow him to move me and lead him closer to me. Everything I go through leads me to him whether we realize it or not. It's about time I start realizing and allowing the Lord to lead my life.
