Below are some of the songs that we sung during “worship music” time at church this past Sunday (April 2nd 2017), which I had to reflect and share on how God personally spoke to me through each individual song. Feel free to share yours down below…
Music: Karaoke-“Shekinah Glory” by Crazy lil’ Sal creativemusicartsy.wordpress.com
“I Worship You In The Spirit” Shekinah Glory Ministry lyrics
Sal: May this song be a prayer daily! We need more of Him throughout the week (not just on church days). “We want more” (releasing of His power to give us strength or whether for His healing power to be show to the people around you that might need it).
How does this song speak to you?
Music: Karaoke-“Holy Spirit” (originally by Bryan & Katie Torwalt) by Crazy lil’ Sal creativemusicartsy.wordpress.com
Holy Spirit – Bryan and Katie Torwalt – Lyric Video
Sal: Let us bring His presence outside of the “Church” walls! ..to our families, communities, workplace, nations, etc…! After recording this and singing it again, I remembered how this particular verse took out..
“..Help up become more aware of your presence…”
I pray that we all become more aware of your presence and how God is trying to “speak” to us in our daily life circumstances.

Music: Karaoke-“Come Alive… Dry Bones” (originally by Lauren Daigle) by Crazy lil’ Sal creativemusicartsy.wordpress.com
“Come Alive (Dry Bones)” featuring Lauren Daigle – Live from the CentricWorship Retreat
Sal: I thought of the game of “trench” I used to play at school growing -up on how we had to use a kick ball or something soft (ball) and hit one of our opponents to get freed from the “dungeon” behind enemy lines. We as “believers” need to take an “active” role (e.g. intercessory prayer and asking God how we can “reach out” to them) like this game on “rescuing” fellow brethren who have “backslidden” from their faith.

There Are No Atheists in Foxholes – Origin liquisearch.com
“The precise origin of the phrase is uncertain. Various sources credit Lieutenant Colonel William J. Clear, or Lieutenant Colonel William Casey, but the phrase is most often attributed to journalist Ernie Pyle. It has also been attributed to U.S. Military Chaplain William T. Cummings in a field sermon during the Battle of Bataan in 1942…”
There Are No Atheists In Foxholes conservapedia.com
“Reverend William T. Cummings is famous for declaring There are no atheists in foxholes.
Reverend William T. Cummings, who served at Bataan, is famous for declaring “There are no atheists in foxholes.” In addition, Lieutenant Colonel Warren J. Clear, who also served at Bataan, used the expression in an interview printed in U.S. newspapers in the middle of April.
Chaplain F.W. Lawson of the 302d Machine Gun Battalion, who was wounded twice in wartime, declared “I doubt if there is such a thing as an atheist. At least there isn’t in a front line trench.” Hannah More wrote: “In agony or danger, no nature is atheist. The mind that knows not what to fly to, flies to God.”
In recent years the organization Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers has taken up use of the slogan “Atheists in Foxholes” as a list of those men and women who serve the country while lacking a belief in a god.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared in remarks broadcast from the White House as part of a February 7, 1954 American Legion Program:
“ As a former soldier, I am delighted that our veterans are sponsoring a movement to increase our awareness of God in our daily lives. In battle, they learned a great truth-that there are no atheists in the foxholes. They know that in time of test and trial, we instinctively turn to God for new courage…Whatever our individual church, whatever our personal creed, our common faith in God is a common bond among us...
Speak Up!—The Deaf-Bed Atheist

“Sources are uncertain as to the origin of the famous saying though most pin it to the WWII Battle of Bataan in 1942. Although the adage occasionally means that all soldiers in combat are “converted” under fire, it is most often used to express the belief of the speaker that all people seek a divine power when they are facing an extreme threat. The quote is also referenced when discussing the opposite effect — that warfare causes some soldiers to question their existing belief in God due to the death and violence around them.
Although not everyone goes to war and not all reach the same conclusion or faith in God, you can just about guarantee that all soldiers have thought about it at one time or another…”

“The phrase “there are no atheists in foxholes” is not without controversy. (In fact, one Soldier even went so far as to file an official complaint because an officer used the “discriminatory” phrase.) The old saying, whose origin is unknown, isn’t meant as a moral conclusion or a statement of fitness. It simply characterizes the belief that in extreme situations and faced with mortal danger, many people are open to the concept of some form of higher power.
There are certainly examples of the opposite truth. A New Hampshire publication recounts the recent award of a medal to a World War II veteran. Milton “Chris” Christian, an 84-year old vet, was presented with a Bronze Star for his service 60 years ago. In the article, he says..”
*Note: Even though Ted might be considered “atheist”, he did call upon “God” during a “foxhole” event while he was a pilot in one of the missions he flew during the Korean War..

“I got a mayday…big explosion in the plane, I didn’t have my brakes…no wheels down…fire in my A#@ ..saying to myself..when is this dirt… I never prayed in my life…G__ da&$…. Christ..this is where Teddy ballgame needs Ya..”-Ted Williams….a miracle!
Remembering Ted Williams: A Marine Fighter Pilot mca-marines.org
“…The midnight-blue F9F “Panther” jet was coming in “heavy” and very fast. Its sluggish movements, trailing smoke and streaming 30-foot ribbon of fire all indicated serious danger. The pilot obviously was having difficulty controlling his aircraft, but he was too low to eject. His only course, therefore, was to try to bring his crippled aircraft in.
An already tense situation became worse when an explosion rocked the undercarriage as the plane approached the airstrip. The stubby fighter plane made a wheels-up “belly” landing, skidding along the tarmac with sparks flying for almost a mile before coming to a stop. The nose promptly burst into flames that threatened the cockpit. The trapped aviator blew off the canopy, struggled out of the plane and limped away, hitting the ground in a less-than-perfect baseball slide…”

Hello…my name is…
What’s your real name? Do you know the meaning of it? What’s the story behind your name? How was your name chosen? Do you identify with it? What do you say is your “true” identity?
I’m always intrigue by people’s real names and I love to ask some of the questions above. Some really ponder and don’t know some of the answers to the questions.
My full name is Salvador Cruz Monteagudo, which mean “savior -cross -sharp/pointed mountain”, something like that… 😉 However, when I was growing-up, many had trouble saying my full name. I can’t remember what grade I was, but a teacher asked if she could call me by a shorter name..”Sal”. I said yes and I’ve used that on my homework, documentations, applications, etc.. ever since. By the way, “Sal” means “salt” in Spanish 😉
Can you relate? Do you have a nickname? What’s the story behind it?
