I'm trying to enlist into the Marine Corps, I am possibly facing odds of being denied to enlist due to the habitual errors I've made in my old ways. A little faith can move mountains... Do I have that amount of faith? I have much more than just that! I have God Almighty fighting my battles for me on my behalf. Not only that, I have many Marines/Vets supporting me along for what I am fighting for. I have listened to this speech dozens of times, and will try to do it every day when I wake up after my praying, during work, working out, and whatever else. At first... I was a coward, "too weak, smoke too many cigs, etc"... To I want to do it, to I will do it, if its my Heavenly Father's will. I will be a Marine, and I have already thanked God & will continue to do it.

We need more people like him who aren’t afraid to make their beliefs known before the public. However, most of all, the world needs to open their arms back up to God. He hasn’t left us like some believe. He told us He wouldn’t and Hebrews 6:18 and other verses confirm that He is incapable of lying.

Sorry, my english is pretty good but i have a question about the sense of the video, I am not prrtty sure of the meaning. English Is not my first language but i don't understand this video. God, what is? The meaning of put god before. They wrote wrong the word? "Tod" maybe or "Bob". Is a error? Thanks
