…..to be more ready for trouble from Satan after We have had a great or even good win over him.
About running from God: “I have found like David said, Where can I go Where He is not. I know He is here in prison…. We talk every day. I know now to do What He wants me to do and He will give me what I need I don’t have to get it myself.”
About the storms of life: “[I] look at myself to see is it sin or a test or something to make me stronger or is it just life and to know whatever it is, I will find the answer at the cross through my Lord Jesus, for Jesus is all that matters.”
About blessings when repenting from sin: “PEACE – JOY – Releaf – knowing I am ready to meet God, that God loves me enough that He would put me through whatever he wants to for me to repent & come to Him.”
About a life lesson from the book of Jonah: “It reminds me to gard my heart that when I may sin not to let it set up in my heart to harden it but cut it out by running to the cross & putting the sin away from me and not let it grow in me making me hard against God.”
About the Jonah Bible study: “A very good study to me — I did not want it to stop. Thank you and May God deeply & richly Bless you.”

“My Prayer” November 18, 2015 by K.F.
Dear Heavenly Father Yes You O Lord,
I need your help to tame my double edged sword.
Take away all the negativity, Please watch over my friends and family.
I cry out O Lord to you, But I’m scared my prayers don’t get through.
I’m lost in this cruel cruel place, Pushing forward everyday with death staring me in the face.
I sit alone at night and pray,
Thank Thee Lord for another glorious beautiful day.
God why do we try to tear each other down?
I’m tired of seeing others walk around with frowns.
Its sad seeing people lose their faith,
When all they have to do is let go for you’ve already carried the weight.
Not taking time to say a prayer before we go to bed,
Not repenting of our sin and to soon were dead.
The blessings you send get pushed back
Because faith and honesty is where we lack.
Lord I wish we could all walk free,
But one day soon chains, handcuffs & shackles can’t hold me.
I can’t wait to see my Father in heaven face to face,
Yes I’m saved but only through his amazing grace.
I know you didn’t put me here,
But you saved me from the death that was drawing near.
So thank you Lord for showing me to live Day to Day,
Without you I would have never found the narrow path way.

Mr. K. G.,
Thank you for the giant print reference Bible. Its print size, cross references and concordance makes it a very reliable hard to beat Bible. Thank you so very much.
In the last set of study answer sheets, you asked if I had gotten in touch with my victim’s daughter since she’d forgiven me for taking her father’s life. Yes, I have. It took a while, but my sister was able to find the daughter’s address. I let her know that her finding peace had been in my prayers for years. I thanked her for her forgiveness, which I had truly never expected nor felt I deserved. I also congratulated her on her making a family of her own and wished her the best that she truly does deserve. There has been no further correspondence between us, which is understandable, but I feel that she and I have made peace with each other because the Lord saw fit that we should. I truly appreciate your concern, comments, and questions.
God bless and keep you and your ministry safe and well. Thank you for allowing me to participate in it.
In Christian Faith,
As I sit in my cell, I no longer waste away,
For Jesus has come to stay.
Fast my days do go by,
I have no more tears to cry.
Joy fills the air,
For I no longer live in satan’s snare.
God’s peace is with me to stay,
He has showed me His righteous way.
My thoughts has been change in every area of my life,
Now that I share everything with Christ!!

Brief testimony —
I was arrested 17 Jan 11, I was taking every narcotic pill you could, washing them down with alcohol — that night I was arrested, I was getting a gun to committ suicide, I couldn’t bare life no more….came to jail angry, and every negative thing possible…..
Someone gave me a Bible __ I said “I don’t need this. God put me here!” He did — for many reasons, 1st one, to save me from myself.
After a time, I began to read God’s Word. He was working on me, Revealing what I was and why i was so unhappy. After 23 months, God said “He’ll take that cold, old heart & replace it with a tender one.” He did — He changed me completely,
I don’t look the same! I have peace where there was once confusion; Joy where sadness was once. Happy, I can’t ever recall ever being so happy — came to jail and found freedom like I’ve never known……
I was once told God will call you back when you not right gently at first. when you refuse to listen, He use drastic measures — He did for me! Now I believe the Lord wants me to be a leader in my family, to my nieces & nephews, my children, etc. Whatever He has for me, I will do it with a Smile on my face — and joy in my heart — God has taken me, from a woman who was angry all the time to Just the opposite! I look forward to what God has enstored for me on the outside and I pray I carry all I’ve learned with me as well…… This has been many lessons learned and I don’t want this trip again…
But I will give God ALL the Glory, the Honor & Praise for what He has done in my life presently and what He’s about to do! Hallelujah!
I never knew love, as i do now…
Never knew joy, til now
Never knew peace, til i gave my all to Him…
I gave my all & fell in love with an awesome man, my Creator, Savior, Redeemer. One day Soon, I praise Him eternally, every day I rise Thanking Him, for one more day!
