Last night was our first meeting for Hidden Treasures Prison Ministry! It was a great meeting! I am so excited about this new opportunity that God is bringing in my life! Even if they don’t let me back in prison, I will still find a way to get to those women in prison!
I’ve kinda been slacking a little with getting involved. I keep blaming it on not having a church home and not being settled in anywhere yet. But there is no excuse why I have not jumped in with both feet into a ministry yet! It is time to find my place! Time to find my purpose out here! It is time to listen for the leading of the Lord and not hesitate for any reason or make any excuses!
What happened to that consuming passion I had to tell my story? What happened to my love and yearning to impact the hurting and the lost?
The meeting last night pricked at my soul! Worshiping with all these ladies that have a heart for prisoners touched me to my core because I was the one on the other side and now I am seeing what goes on out here to make it happen on the inside. It made me realize how much I want this in my life! My purpose is to take Jesus Christ into the prisons. To take His love to the ones that feel unloved. To bring His hope to those who feel that all hope has been lost!
I’ve been lolly-gagging around for too long! It’s time to take action! It’s time to get my focus back and put my passion back where my heart is… telling a story of redemption and hope. Telling a story of love and forgiveness. Telling the story of Jesus, who had a heart for the prisoners and those in bondage. It’s His story to tell. And His people need to hear it. So thankful that this ministry, Hidden Treasures, is starting up and allowing me to be a part of it!
