In Memory of a Fallen Soldier
Daniel was in the battle for his life from June 26, 2000 through June 27 2004. Daniel was heaven bound. He was baptized in Jesus name on January 1, 2000 and filled with the Holy Ghost that same night. Daniel’s battle with cancer was long and hard. In the 4 years that he battled he only once asked “Why did I have to have cancer?” In all of his painful moments he cried out to God for healing and relief.
Daniel was a warrior for the Lord. Daniel’s favorite scripture was Proverbs 3:5-6. He fulfilled that scripture by trusting in the Lord with all of his heart. In our loss of Daniel and heaven’s gain we need not to weep but rejoice, for Daniel is home now. He has seen Jesus face to face and his pain and sorrow is over.
We may have lost this battle for Daniel’s life but now is the time to prepare for war. Let us go to God and His Word and recover the faith that was once delivered unto the saints (Jude 1:3). Let us not lose another fellow soldier to sickness or disease. Let’s recover the power of the healer and bring deliverance to the sick and dying. Let’s win the next battle for Daniel’s sake.
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
