November 2015 Jottings – Chaplain Lil

Have you ever found yourself in the midst of Challenges within your life, or in your family, or work? Challenges are very familiar to God. We are immersed in challenges in our daily lives. When knocking on the door for Christ we may continue to have doubt. We hope He will touch the hearts of the lost.
As a prison chaplain for well over 24 years, there have been many challenges in working with the women at Chester County Prison. I believe that God has seen me through those challenges. It has been a growing experience for me. I also believe in allowing God to do his work through me. I reflect on the verse in Revelation 3:20 NIV. “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person”. He has continued to equip me each week to teach the women through their own doubts; praying Christ will touch their hearts and that they will relinquish control to allow God to work in them.
In 2 Timothy 4:5-8 Paul tells us to endure suffering, “endure” being the key word. Regularly teaching on this is helpful on how to endure the challenges of life and where our ability to endure comes from. “Endure” and “relinquish” have been two words that have been an eye opener to the women. Teaching them the Love of Christ, who suffered on the cross and took all of their guilt, even though it didn’t belong to Him.
I want to thank you all for you prayers and support for myself and Peter Roomet at Chester County Prison. During this season, and always, we are thankful to God for dedicated believers such as yourselves.
May God Continue to bless you all.
