God bless you Sister Eva! This is an extremely intense piece you wrote and job that you do for your profession! But, I see you do it because you are serving God’s will for you and that is all any of us at least those who profess to be devout Christians should be doing which is providing God with our free will allowing our lives to be filled with His Holy Spirit continually making our lives a living sacrifice to be directed as He sees fit!
I know that the spiritual warfare is exponentially increased now over any other time in human history and there are many other tools for the evil one to use as temptations or snares now so the landscape before us all not just in prisons is a quagmire of debauchery; just look at our Nations seat of power and the evil forces that are so plain and easy to see for those of us that are fighting hard for God! I’ve seen many who are demonically influenced and some possessed over the last dozen years. I had to fight my own personal battles with these forces, even legal battles after being attacked directly by evil, but, I know Jesus has been with me which is the only reason I was able to overcome any of that hardship and turmoil along with health issues caused by these nefarious minions who serve the devil. The key is what you have explained here very well! As Billy Graham said many times in passing or during his ministering to God’s children!
Matthew 25:23 “His lord said to him, “Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I shall set you over much; enter the joy of your Lord.”
Of course this Scripture is exactly what is on Billy Graham’s tombstone for his epitaph, which is what he requested before his passing on. And I was so moved and inspired when in his final days when I saw him on a television program where he stated; that this is all he wanted to be remembered as, no huge celebratory hoopla; but just a humble man who worked hard all of his life to be God’s servant! What a good life and service provided by his sacrifice!
I say you have been working in this same vain; hallelujah! Emmanuel. Amen.
God bless you and all those you meet in your work and daily life! Amen.

Amended: I decided to add these thoughts from a previous essay I posted about Jim Caviezel and his drawing closer to the Lord through his work to save souls!
Ultimately the choice is for each of us to decide if we are too interested in serving this world and man with the crooked Ways of The World System or will we decide that this short life is too precious an opportunity to waste on going down a Dead-end path or worse; and that instead we choose to serve God and His divine plan; seeking only to do His will not our own!
If you are on your God chosen path that is wonderful; if you are not, I pray that you seek Jesus Christ with genuine devotion and a yearning growing faith in Him! Then allowing Him to lead you along God’s chosen path, doing His will daily; to “love and serve Him!” Amen.
Please sisters and brothers be sure to read the commentary in the comment section that was inspired between sister Eva and myself from this reblogging. Thank you!
God bless you!
As you may have read on this blog, I work in prison.
Depending on your assumptions about what it might be like to work in a place like this, you may or not be surprised to hear that it is the best job I have ever had in my entire life.
I get so much joy out of working there and I am excited to go to work every day!
Of course, prisons are generally dark places and there is a lot of despair, drama, pain, misery, dirt, filth, violence and ugliness there.
But the SPIRIT OF GOD and HIS PRESENCE is also very, very imminent and potent and evident there – at least in the prison where I work, and from what I hear from other Christians working in other prisons, it is the same there as well.
For me, my job in prison is my ministry.

One thought on “Thanks for helping to save a life”
“Thank you so much for the reblog and for your kindness, my brother!
We are all doing our best to work in HIS vineyard and bring glory to HIS name – in the best way we can – and we are all using what HE has given us, the gifts, the talents, the experiences and also the pain.
I see you, my brother.
You are doing what you believe THE LORD wants you to do, exposing the lies of the enemy, publishing truth and I am sure GOD will reward you for your work!
It is true, we all want to hear HIM say “well done, good and faithful servant” – don’t we?
GOD bless you too my brother, I truly appreciate your words and I know that GOD sees your heart.”
You’re very welcome my sister Eva! After I read how your work is so challenging, but just as needed by those individuals who’ve fallen into the deeper quagmire of troubles in this world by making bad choices or having gotten caught up in conflicted circumstances that can only lead one to trouble by subsequently being on the wrong side of the law; I was moved by the Spirit. I was thinking how this work that you do isn’t just a noble thing for you to provide legal counsel to the greatly afflicted in this world!
And I thought especially how considerate it is of you to also be ministering God’s truth through His word to some individuals who are in such great need of this insight and hope of Salvation, from these snares of sin or corruption that led them to criminal punishment!
But beautifully through this witnessing and fellowship to then understand how so important it is to not ever lose hope, and to know with certainty that our living and passing through this earthly life is a short term of suffering for everyone, one way or another; and for you to do what you do is quite saintly; as you must be serving the Lord’s will as I see it.
2 Timothy 1:6-8 “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control. 8So do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, or of me, His prisoner. Instead, join me in suffering for the gospel by the power of God.”
Matthew 14: 26-28 “When the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost!” they said, and cried out in fear. 27But Jesus spoke up at once: “Take courage! It is I. Do not be afraid.” 28“Lord, if it is You,” Peter replied, “command me to come to You on the water.”
“35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,
36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?
38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?
39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,
43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.”
Because in all of this, we must consider Jesus also warned all of us as we proceed hopefully in due diligence doing the Father’s will; that we truly need to avoid doing what this following Scripture point’s out clearly!
Mathew 25:41-43 “Then He will say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42For I was hungry and you gave Me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me nothing to drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, I was naked and you did not clothe Me, I was sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.”
This to me signifies how our journey here though it’s not easy to do all of the time, but, we must remember our Lord is a God of Mercy and Love first and foremost; as He proved it beyond any shadow of a doubt by offering up His only begotten Son on the cross as a living sacrifice in perpetuity in order that Anyone who wants to be saved can be and will be, by humbly coming to Him on bent knee at the foot of His cross, repenting of any sins with a contrite heart in order to receive his gift of redemption and salvation; so then being able and willing to go on seeking to serve our Father who is in heaven. Amen.
This my Sister Eva is truly beautiful and touches my deepest heart as I hope it does anyone else especially those in great need caught in horrible difficulties.
“We are all doing our best to work in HIS vineyard and bring glory to HIS name – in the best way we can – and we are all using what HE has given us, the gifts, the talents, the experiences and also the pain.
I see you, my brother.”
Amen to that and praise the Lord our God in Jesus’ holy name! Because this entire existence is His vineyard that He created so that we His children can attain eternal life with Him in His glory!
Sister I so truly appreciate your understanding and kind words to me; they mean so much and I did and do need them! We all need as much encouragement and “real courage” in this ever so tumultuous even chaotic world where the prince of it deals out his cards to outdo any of us, if given that chance to beat us! We can’t allow that, and we have the power of heaven to make sure it won’t happen as long as we stay close to and follow Jesus Christ with our hearts devoted to Him alone, then the Father in all of His glory will protect and cherish us for our devotion and love to His Son who gave all, taking the burden of all sin upon Himself for our betterment; bringing us home to Him in Paradise!
Romans 8:31-32 “What then shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, freely give us all things?”
Thank you again Sister Eva for this inspiration! Amen.
God bless you.
Brother in Christ Jesus,
