I picked up a “Who is Jesus?” Devotion Series at the Chaplain’s library a few days ago. Although not the first time, it was the first time I have read it with enthusiasm.
After reading it, I was touched and brought to tears of spiritual joy. My roommate and another prisoner were sitting on his bed, playing chess. They saw me wiping the tears from my eyes and got concerned, as they thought something was wrong. When I shared the “Who is Jesus?” Devotion Series with them, they too started nearly the same.
My roommate said: Man it’s been more times than I can count! Only God knows how many times they have spoken the right Scriptures to me, and many more of us prisoners, right when we needed it, comforting us in Christ. You need to sit and write this God-sent prison ministry, and then thank God for speaking to their heart.
He just kept going on and on about how right and true your words were. I just let the tears of joy flow freely. The three of us joined hands and prayed. The Power of the Holy Spirit was so strong: not only in our room but in the entire dorm. I didn’t know it at first, but the majority of the prisoners were looking at this television show called “The Voice.” I was told that when we started praying, another prisoner got up and turned the volume down. Some prisoners outside my room door and some of the other prisoners fell silent. I didn’t know what to make of it. But, I gave thanks and praises to God.
Once again, thank you for your spiritual uplifting and encouraging message. Only the Holy Spirit could have led you to write so truthfully and beautifully for His Sake. You and your family are lifted daily in my prayers. I will write more as God opens the door for me in my next letter.
God loves you, and so do I, in Christ Jesus.
God is an on-time God. He may not come when we want Him to, but He will always be there right on time. We just need to wait on Him. Amen
