All you need is in your soul is a message that I've been sharing for almost 35 years. You may think that if you are brave, you don't need faith, or help, or anything from anyone. How is your life now? Are you happy? Have you made peace with what happened during your service? Do you feel love, or do you only feel anger and regrets? Are you still drinking or doing drugs so you don't have to feel anything?Simple ManLynyrd SkynyrdMama told me when I was youngCome sit beside me, my only sonAnd listen closely to what I sayAnd if you do thisIt will help you some sunny dayTake your time...don't live too fastTroubles will come and they will passGo find a woman and you'll find loveAnd don't forget sonThere is someone up aboveAnd be a simple kind of manBe something you love and understandBe a simple kind of manWon't you do this for me sonIf you can?Forget your lust for the rich man's goldAll that you need is in your soulAnd you can do this if you tryAll that I want for you my sonIs to be satisfiedAnd be a simple kind of manBe something you love and understandBe a simple kind of manWon't you do this for me sonIf you can?Boy, don't you worry...you'll find yourselfFollow you heart and nothing elseAnd you can do this if you tryAll I want for you my sonIs to be satisfiedAnd be a simple kind of manBe something you love and understandBe a simple kind of manWon't you do this for me sonIf you can?
Well, I got news for you, not healing is just plain stupid! Why on earth would you want to go from a person so filled with courage and compassion that you were willing to die for someone else, into this half alive person? What are you afraid of? Admitting you need help?
Suck it up and remember what it was like when your job almost killed you. Did you ask for help back then when you were outnumbered or did you try to pull a Rambo? Chances are you were smart enough to ask for whatever the hell you could get to stay alive.
As for the rest of the ego thing, pity isn't your type of party. Is it? If you're miserable and suffering then folks will feel sorry for you, but if you do whatever it takes to heal and fight this battle, you become an inspiration!!!!!
Don't worry, I'm not going to get all preachy on you but one thing is for sure. God doesn't screw up. Humans do. Whatever got in your head making you think that it doesn't get any better than this moment is, everything you need is in your soul!
But Streucker is more focused on a heavenly reward. As the lead pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in Columbus, Georgia, and a highly sought-after speaker, he is just as interested in winning souls for Jesus Christ as he is protecting his country from its enemies.The retired U.S. Army major is a veteran of military operations in Panama, Iraq, Somalia and Afghanistan and has earned a chest full of medals for distinguished service. His heroism was depicted in the popular war movie “Black Hawk Down.”
In Jesuit Father James Conroy, the White House Jesuit Retreat in south St. Louis County has perhaps the perfect leader for its annual veterans retreat — Friday, June 30, to Sunday, July 2, just before Independence Day.Being a Jesuit priest at a Jesuit retreat center certainly qualifies in the spiritual aspect, but Father Conroy also fulfills the temporal nature of the retreat, connecting him quickly with men and women who have served their country.He's a veteran himself, of the Vietnam War.Now, you ready to get to work and start getting your life back? Whatever is wrong with you is because of what is strong within you. Hint: The same thing that gave you all you needed to do what you did and make it this far is the same thing that can heal you!
