Today, a man came in to PUSH needing a few things. I struck up a converstation with him and found he had just been released from prision the day before. He had nothing.
I told him we’d be more than glad to help with whatever we could.
He looked at me and said ma’am, I want to work and I want to be a good father to my son. I’ve been in prision for several years and have a lot of time to make up to him.
He went on further and said, I don’t want anything. I have ALL I need. My freedom is precious right now and I want to get a job and rebuild my family. I’m going to do my part and I know my God will do the rest. My life is up to me!
Prison can be a physical jail cell or it can be an emotional lockdown. It’s so important to know that You have to take the first steps. You have to make choices to move forward. There’s lots of resources. It’s up to you!! ~ Another……..BUT GOD moment!!
