"Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the mind and healing to the body."
~ Proverbs 16:24
"You have made the Lord, my refuge, even the Most High, Your dwelling place. No evil will befall you, nor will any plague come near your tent."
~ Psalm 91:9-10 NASB
Last evening I witnessed a neighbors trailer being scouted out & then broken into . . . honestly for a few moments I wavered on "what to do" . . . I believe it was my heart that knew what the correct thing was to do but I believe it was my mind that wanted to argue it a bit . . . or maybe that was reverse, I am pondering the difference between the heart & mind . . . anyhoot . . . I knew what they were doing was wrong & needed to be confronted . . . but as well I was a bit hesitant for some human flesh concerns ( to put it one way ) were rapidly swirling about . . . by the grace of God & the encouragement of Jesus I did the right thing . . . the owners of the trailer do not reside there, this trailer has been a continous work in progress for them . . . three years back they gave me their cell numbers but untill this moment I never called them . . . again by the grace of God I located the numbers & was able to make contact . . . turns out that they were in NJ attending a loved ones funeral & no they had not given any individuals permission to enter the residence & remove any item . . . from there they requested I call the local police . . . with my mind & heart still battling a wee bit I literally stammered & stuttered to the police what little I knew & what was taking place . . . during the call the individuals began to leave & I had a feeling "too little, too late" BUT again by the pure Mercy & Grace of God the police were able to understand my gibberish & were able to apprehend ALL individuals involved . . . the police arrived here & we literally discussed it in detail for over two hours . . .during this time period naturally the "local scouters" emerged & creeped about . . . watching & observing, tallying . . . again my mind began the "moans" . . . mmmm, now you done! you are marked! retailation is in the making . . . mmm, mmmm. mmmm . . . perhaps BUT I feel that is when the Holy Spirit spoke up by assuring me "If God is for you, who can be against you?" . . . which then I heard/felt the word "conform" . . . mmmm, yes . . . so many of us ( myself included ) do a great "talk" of what we would have done in any "situation" but honestly when it comes down to it, will we do the "walk"? or will we instead "conform" & turn our heads because it does not involve us or it is none of our business? but aren't humanes, our brothers & sisters, are business? Honestly it is easier to sit there & cluck your tongue to your cheek & say "oh ain't that a shame" "what is this world coming too" "that is just wrong! SOMEONE should do something!" . . . it is much easier fer sure but just because it is easier doesn't always mean it is right or for the better . . .
I give HUGE kudos to the Police! I give continous PRAISE & GLORY to God & Jesus!
