think on these things by Roberto Jimenez Sr. I am thankful that God will not condemn me for my past mistakes and sinful behavior (Romans 8:1), and that I can always come to Him with confidence (Hebrews 10:35). Every time I sincerely confess my sins to the Lord, He will forgive me and cleanse me (1 John 1:9). Even though my body is in prison, my spirit has been set free from the bondage of my past (John 8:36). I am comforted by the fact that God still loves me, and I believe nothing in this world can separate me from that love (Romans 8:35-39). In fact, His love for me is an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3). Though I am surrounded by many sinful temptations, God will never allow me to be tempted with more than I can bear (1 Corinthians 10:13). During times of loneliness and discouragement, I will remember that I am never really alone (Hebrews 13:5), for God is always with me. Fear cannot control my thoughts, because the Lord has promised to replace my fears with power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). Whenever the enemy comes against me, I will submit myself to God in prayer, and by resisting the devil, he will be forced to flee (James 4:7). I will wait patiently for the day of my release, knowing that God hears the cry of my heart for freedom (Psalms 40:1-3), and cares deeply for me (1 Peter 5:7). I will take comfort in the truth of God’s Word, for it is my life (Psalm 119:50). As I daily hide the Word in my heart, it will keep me from sin (Psalm 119:11), and it will illuminate my way through the darkness (Psalm 119:105). Amen! “I pray that people will be inspired by this publication, God bless you all.” 12
