I used to enjoy going to work in the prison. After my battle with some people in higher positions started, I dreaded the atmosphere, but not the work. I knew from the beginning that the Lord wanted me to learn so much by bringing me into this dark place after I injured my neck in 1997. The moment He found me, I knew that He started working in my heart. Despite being surrounded with evilness and darkness, He blessed me tremendously as soon as I started working here and got out of my comfort zone from the hospital.
And He continues to bless me by faithfully being there at this troubling time.
I looked around and observed the people I worked with.
Those who loved money had been killing themselves working extra, longer hours to earn more.
Those who were conscious with the way they looked, often, talked about undergoing cosmetic procedures to maintain their physical beauty.
Those who were seeking pleasures for themselves were seeking in wrong places to satisfy whatever hunger their bodies had.
Those who wanted power only acted to feed their interests and they often spoke only about their accomplishments.
My self-fulfillment and satisfaction only occurred when Christ found me. What this world programmed in my heart was being replaced with His work in me. The process was painful. And it is still on-going…But nothing in this world would ever equal the joy and peace that Christ gives to a surrendered heart.
Christ indeed is the only treasure that fulfills everything.
