No Doubt!

How many times I’ve been hurt before? My trust broken? And it’s happening again at my workplace. It’s so ironic that we are working as a part of law enforcement, yet, some people in power don’t seem to care to break the law in order to fulfill their own desires. In order to satisfy their own intentions.

My broken heart, Someone did rescue. The only Healer. The only Mender. The only One Who gives hope. The only One Who remains faithful. The only One Who accepts and loves me (any one of us) for who I am we are.

I used to wonder. I used to have doubts of His existence. But He remained faithful. Day after day. Month after months. Year after years. He has proven and has shown that what’s impossible for me is not for Him. Doubt…No! I never doubt His power. I never doubt that He is risen. I never doubt that He is the Son of God. Because when I doubt myself, He always believed in me. The God Who is able.

Do you believe in Jesus?

  4. @Sister Bren: Thank you for the cyber hugs...It feels good and I'm encouraged. Thank you for your prayers. Always. Keeping you in mine. It's hard to trust now at work. Knowing all the lies. But that's okay. I pray for the Lord to continue to give me a discerning Spirit of where He wants me to go now. Even if I'm hurt, it doesn't matter anymore. I just pray for these evil people to know the Lord. He's the only One Who can change their hearts. God bless.

  5. Dear Rosel
    It must comfort you to remember what Jesus said... that if the world hated Him, so will the world also hate those who follow Him. They are not really hating you... it's Jesus they hate. Count it a privilege to suffer the hatred of the world... count it all joy, dearest Rosel.

    Keeping you close...

  11. Hi Beth -

    Certainly, you are not alone - how wonderful that you know that.

    Our Lord is such a comfort in the midst of it all - HE REIGNS.

    One of my favorite motto's is -

    WHATEVER IT IS - IT IS NOT BIGGER THAN GOD.

The Attacker (5/15/09)

The sun was just peeking from the Eastern skies. Ephesians 6:12 [37 kb]


Out in the prison’s yard, some huge Sheriff’s buses were illuminated by the soft glow coming from the lights all over from the tall lamp posts. Their engines were turned on, warming up, before the buses would take the inmates to the different courts where they would have their trials.


Orange-uniformed men were lined up in pairs, joined together with handcuffs and chained, forming a long line. They already had their breakfast and had their morning medications prior to going to courts. Some were fidgeting, as they waited to board those buses.


All of a sudden, all hell broke loose! Two men were engaged in a fight, using weapons they made secretly for a while. Deputies called for help on the radio, both for custody back-up and medical staff, as well.


When the air was cleared and the other inmates were secured, one man was down on the floor. He sustained multiple gashes but two of them were deep. One cut was vertically etched from his left ear going down to the jaw line. The other dangerous cut was horizontal on his left neck, close to the jugular vein. Pool of blood dripped all over the floor. Holding his bleeding neck, he was pointing at the other inmate few feet away, being guarded by the other deputies.


The other man being accused was not hurt. There were no lacerations nor any other signs of trauma. He was obviously very agitated as he was being questioned by those deputies, while the medical staff started treating the other man on the floor. They cleaned the wounds and controlled the bleeding. That man was sent to the nearby hospital.


When the investigation was finalized, it turned out to be that the “downed man who was accusing the other inmate” was the attacker and the other one who didn’t have injury was the one attacked. The deputies found out that it was the second attempt to attack the unhurt man. Both attacks on him failed. He was well-prepared after the first attempt on him, that when the second attempt was done, he was able to defend himseld and ended up injuring his attacker severely.


[Source: Life Application Bible]:


We also have an “accuser of the brethren.” Satan and his army of demons are the enemies of God and of everything good.


“Because God’s children are human beings – made of flesh and blood – Jesus also became flesh and blood by being born in human form. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the Devil, who had the power of death.” –Hebrews 2:14


Because of what Jesus had done [dying on the cross], we, who live in constant fear of death shouldn’t be afraid anymore. Jesus had freed us from that fear so we can live for Him. When we belong to God, we know that death is only the portal that leads into “eternal life”. [“Thank You Lord!].


Paul warned us, too that we also battle against the evil forces of Satan, who is a vicious fighter. But to be able to withstand their attacks, we must depend on God’s strength and use every piece of His armor. We face an army whose goal is to defeat Christ’s church. When we believe in Christ, they become our enemies. They will try any device to turn us away from the Lord.


Fear not! For God has provided His supernatural power to defeat Satan and his army, through His Holy Spirit within us. So, arm yourselves with God’s armor.


Let us be strong in the Lord's mighty power. Let's put on His whole armor to resist the enemy's attacks: put on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God's righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News, so that we are well-prepared. We will need faith in every battle as our shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed by Satan and his army. Let us put on salvation as our helmet, not forgetting the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Let's pray at all times, on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. We must stay alert and be persistent in our prayers for all Christians everywhere. [Ephesians 6:10-18].
