I hope this letter finds you well, despite the circumstances you are facing. I understand that being incarcerated can be a difficult and trying experience, and I want you to know that you are not alone. Many others, myself included, are praying for you and lifting you up in thought and spirit.
In times of difficulty, it can be easy to lose hope and feel as though life is not worth living. However, as a Christian, I firmly believe that no matter what our circumstances may be, we can find joy, peace, and purpose in life through our relationship with Jesus.
In John 14:27, Jesus says, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” This verse reminds us that even in the midst of our trials, we can have peace in our hearts because of the peace that Jesus offers us.
In addition, Romans 8:38-39 says, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” This verse tells us that nothing, not even being incarcerated, can separate us from the love of God.
I encourage you to hold on to these verses and to cling to your faith in Jesus. Allow Him to be your source of comfort, strength, and hope. Know that there are people who love you and are praying for you, and that you are never truly alone.
I will continue to pray for you and the Church. May God bless you and give you the peace and strength you need to endure these trying times.
