“You will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world. Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped, and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely….The free men of the world are marching together to victory. I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory. Good luck, and let us all beseech the blessings of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.” ~General Dwight D. Eisenhower giving the D-Day order on June 6, 1944.

  1. This could echo the marching orders for the church in this hour. Don’t you think? Our knees should be calloused, our voices hoarse from lifting them up, and our strength and resolve should flow from our Father’s heart into our own hands and feet so that His kingdom should shake the kingdoms in the hearts of the lost, lonely, and broken.

    Thanks for sharing this today. It quickened my heart, hands and mind!

    Still pressing forward, Bonnie
