Always keep Navy Operations Security in mind.  In the Navy, it's essential to remember that "loose lips sink ships."  OPSEC is everyone's responsibility. 

DON'T post critical information including future destinations or ports of call; future operations, exercises or missions; deployment or homecoming dates.  

DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.  Psalm 51:10

Restore us, O God; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.   Psalm 80:3

Whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.  2 Corinthians 3:16–17

God, I get bombarded by so many different voices and directions clamoring for my attention. Keep me focused on your timeless love and the truth of your Word. I’m so grateful for the gift of your Spirit and the freedom I have from the confines of sin and death. Remind me to live as a free child of God. Lord, forgive me when I fail and help me to accept the grace that you so freely give. Strengthen my heart to resist temptations.

Just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6–7

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!
1 John 3:1

“Praise be to the name of God forever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons . . .”
Daniel 2:20–21

Dear God, clean out the worries, guilt, and sinfulness in my heart today. Thank you that you are with me through every season. Help me grow closer to Thee through Your Son, Jesus. May I never forget where my Joy comes from. Give me a Heart of Love and Gratitude.  Show me ways each day to become more like Jesus, giving, helping, loving Not complaining and trying to get 1 step up or ahead of others. We are on this journey together help us to reach out to each other with a helping hand.  Show us your ways Lord and your Love and Forgiveness.  This we ask through Christ your Son Amen.

For those who are home all day (complaining) watching TV or what ever you are doing....think about picking up the Bible and start reading.  There were hardships and trials before and after Christ. Some turned away from God and seen great trials, some turned back and was rewarded with abundance. Read and Learn. God is always with us,  are we turning away or towards him?  the path was rarely straight because we were given free will.  Sometimes we don't choose right but God is always there to take us back. He is reaching out his hand to you today, are you gonna slap it away? ignore it? or grab on and Praise him?

Father I choose to hang onto your every word. To Love, repent, forgive and follow Jesus.

Psalm 91:1 "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty"

v.5,6 "You will not fear the terror of night nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday".

v15 "He will call upon me and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him."

Thank you Father that you are in control. Thank you that you have a plan for each of us and are working things according to your will and not ours. Thank you LORD that you love us and our children more than anyone else with a love that surpasses all understanding on our part. Thank you GOD that nothing can take us away from you. We love you so much and are eternally grateful and thankful that you chose us to be yours even before we were born. Satan cannot have us. We praise you today, tomorrow and forever. Your will be done in Jesus name. Amen.

[Jesus said,] “Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” Matthew 6:8

Dear Lord, please remind me that you do hear my prayers, even when I’m forced to wait patiently for your answer.

By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also.   1 Corinthians 6:14

Jesus, thank you for rising from the dead and bringing abundant life. I want to trust you fully, knowing that what I do is meaningful for your kingdom.

Comment by Blondie on April 22, 2020 at 2:42pm

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

Romans 12:12

Dear God, thank you for the way you’ve gifted me and given me a purpose in life. Help me to share it even in the midst of today’s challenges.

Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.   Philippians 3:12

Heavenly Father, I’m so glad that you don’t expect more from me than I’m capable of giving. I don’t have to be perfect. You love me just as I am.

Comment by Blondie on April 17, 2020 at 3:37pm

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.  Romans 3:23–24

Jesus, help me to be vulnerable with the right person at the right time today. Allow our conversation to reveal your strength in my weakness. 

I am the resurrection and the life. (John 11:25)

Alleluia! Jesus is risen! His resurrection reveals a new kind of victory and strength. Easter reminds us that God’s love for each one of us is stronger than fear, illness, or even death.

Comment by Blondie on April 15, 2020 at 3:41pm

It was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed . . . , but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.  1 Peter 1:18–19

Put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with him is full redemption.   Psalm 130:7

The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever.
Isaiah 32:17

Lord, I’m so thankful for the unchangeable, unalterable foundation for my faith in Christ. I give you Praise  Abba Father, like a scared child, sometimes I just need you to hold me. I feel your presence and know you love me. Father, I want to follow your ways and produce the fruits you have promised in my life. Help me to follow your ways and not my own. through Christ Your Son we ask these things. Amen
