They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning; we will remember them. 

This Remembrance Day, the Nation will stop and remember those who have laid down their lives so that we might experience freedom. We may never know the hardship and the challenges that our military has had to face. As we pause in quiet recognition let’s consider that those we remember were somebody’s father or mother, husband or wife, son or daughter, grandchild or friend. 

Today these families are left with photos and memories of better times. No one but Jesus will honestly know the heartache, the tears, the grief, the fears and uncertainty of what the future may hold. Yet as we choose to remember the fallen with dignity and pride, and rightly so, we should not forget those who are hurting and grieving for their loved ones that are no longer here; unable to talk, laugh and share stories. 

Jesus knew what it was to weep when his friend Lazarus died. He cried with Mary and Martha and is touched with the feeling of our infirmities and weaknesses. (Hebrews 4:15) God truly knows and cares; He understands and is one who is acquainted with our deepest grief and no stranger to suffering(Isaiah 53:3) 

We honour the many who have laid down their lives so that we might experience freedom

If this Remembrance Day brings back memories of the pain and disappointments of the past, don’t hide those feelings or emotions. God is already aware, and He invites us to give all our cares, all our worries, all our concerns upon Him because He cares about you. (1 Peter 5:7) You don’t need to suffer in silence or suppress your emotions for tears are liquid prayers, captured in his bottle and not one is lost. They are all recorded and counted into the book of remembrance, where there are no blots or mistakes. This attentiveness demonstrates the heart of God to know and to care about every intricate detail of our lives. 

Today, we honour those who have given their lives in wars and conflict across the world; we are forever grateful. We also remember the one who gave His only begotten Son, becoming an example oselflessness so we might live in true freedom.  
We Will Remember Them
We remember those who fought, so we could live in freedom.
