A Glimpse Inside the Prison Walls

Our days in prison for 2011 are now completed. Words really cannot describe what we have experienced during these prison services. Watching Jesus working in lives, setting captives free, and healing the broken hearted is.....absolutely awesome.
 I could say so much more-I could write for hours and not do justice to the power of God. He is so mighty...He alone could do such amazing things! 
I am reminded once again that I am no better than these inmates-that it is only by the grace of God that I am on this side of the fence and they are on the inside. 
He set me free from those heavy chains of sin, He set me free and He gave me peace within
Well He lifted all my burdens and took my fears away and now I praise and thank Him and I'm waiting for the day
When I shall see my blessed Savior face to face and hear Him say "I have prepared for you a place"
Until that day I'll watch and pray and thank my God for setting me free
I will close with some thoughts from Psalm 103.....these verses take on new meaning after seeing the Lord so mightily at work in setting people free!
"Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy name...Who redeemeth thy life from destruction, Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies.....The Lord is merciful and gracious.....As far as the east if from the west, so far hath He removed our trangressions from us...."
