How to Stay Close to God During Deployment

When Sonja asked me to blog for her military corner, I asked her what topic she wanted me to tackle first. She asked me to write about staying close to God during deployment. I thought about it for a long time.

Deployment is one of those times that make you think, “Where is God in all of this?” But I ask you, shouldn’t that be the time where you need Him most? It’s a time for growing and learning as a person, but also spiritually. A time to devote more time to God and to intentionally live as a Christian.

When you think about deployment, what is the first word(s) you think of? Most likely it’s NOT going to be “spiritual growth” or “internal peace. I did a poll on my blog’s Facebook page. I asked, “When you hear the word deployment, what is the first thing you think of? In ONE word only please.” I got responses such as, “loneliness,” “fear,” “heartache,” “dread,” “alone” and “sad.”

When I thought about it, I realized that deployment does not have to mean these things. It can be a time for personal learning and growing, it can be a time to grow closer to God and to work on your relationship with Him.

So the question is: How can we turn around something that is full of “dread” and “sadness” and turn it into an experience to learn, grow, and become closer to God? So glad you asked!
