MESSAGE

I went to congratulate him and noticed he was sad. He told me of his eagerness to be released and see his family. To my surprise, he opened up about his life and the events that had led him here. I asked him to join me in a prayer. When we finished, I encouraged him to take heart in the words of Revelation 3:20: “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in.” I invited him to the worship service in the chapel that evening.

Luckily, God is steadfast and patient. When we place our trust in our Savior, the Holy Spirit opens our spiritual eyes to see the path that God has laid before us, always leading toward our good.
