Prisons and Jails Bulging

PRISONS AND JAILS BULGING

Here are some observations I see happening in my life at the jails here in Yakima and in what is happening to our jails and prisons in the United States.

Prisons and jails are bulging at the seams; we’re building new and larger facilities to hold more inmates. Through out the nation many facilities are built, with no money to place residents in them. Many are being released, before their sent time, to make room for more inmates coming in. This is causing lots of frustration to citizens through out the nation, as we’re putting criminals out on our streets, before they complete their sentencing.

I see inmates daily needing to be rehabilitated to reduce recidivism; this requires a community effort to make sure we use what has been built.

I understand the power of prayer, for without it we are just another person struggling to achieve our potential. I would encourage everyone to pray for the jail ministry here in Yakima, as we work with staff and those in authority over us. Pray the Lord will open the hearts of people to accept the truth, the way, and the life, that is only found in knowing the Lord, as our personal Savior. I see people daily who begin to want to change as they accept the truth.

Achieving Your Potential Part 11

Do I see the truth, or do I have blind spots? What is my perception of truth? Does it bless me or curse me? We have what is called Cognitive Dissonance- restraint and contradictory conflicting opinions and beliefs. We are not seeing the true picture God has painted for us, but we see the picture Satan has painted, it is more fun, anyone can do it. So please, “do not tell me what to do, and I will not tell you”, is what I hear to often in the Jails.

Gods Word never changes, it is the bases of all truth and we are seeing the Bible not being read so who do we obey. NO ONE! What is your self worth based upon, money, fame, who you are, or who God is? The total you is based upon your beliefs, who do you visualize becoming like MAN or GOD?

Let’s look at our habits and attitudes and see the need for simulators (Like the real thing) in our lives. Is it rationalization we base every thing on, I hope so. Is it logical and justifying to all around me? Like a Doctor that smokes, or a minister that cheats, and tells there clients not to. It takes a commitment to understand the truth, that we are all born sinners. That makes me want to, not have to change my habit, or attitude about the truth. I need to be born again into that child of Gods, not the enemies. Note what John 3 says:

Achieving Your Potential Part 10

Motivation is a Latin Verb; “MOVERE” meaning to move. It is an intense drive that causes action, or a reason to act, or behave. Need is a lack of something good and a drive is a tendency to act, in order to fill that need. I hope you’re seeing if you have to, you’re going to be unhappy, but if you want to, you’re blessed beyond measure.

Romans 8:13 (KJV) says, 13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

 Romans 6:6 (KJV) Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

Gal 6:16 (KJV)  And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

Do these verses motivate you to die out to self and life for God?
