I trust you are well.
In recent days, again I have become aware of children who are ill in the Police Family. Parents and Grandparents are truly concerned about these children. Please bring them before the Lord for His Intervention in what at times are harrowing experiences for the Children and also for those in the Family who watch and care.
This week I have attended a Meeting where I have been with a large number of people listening to a speaker. He was talking about the pressures under which so many people in our Country work today, such as Police Officers and Staff. As a result, they find very little time to care for themselves.
When the speaker came to the rostrum to speak; on the table in front of him was a glass full of water for his use.
As he started to speak to us, he encouraged us to interrupt with any comment or question we might have.
About half way through his speaking, he picked up the glass of water; continued to speak and placed it back on the table. I began to count the number of times he did this – six times but he never drank any of the water.
Eventually a member of the audience indicated that they wanted to ask a question, so the speaker stopped and listened. At this point he picked up the glass of water and drank.
This speaker was showing us by his body language – quite unintentionally, exactly what his subject was about, too busy to stop and look after himself. His body was crying out for water, but he never stopped to drink.
As Police Officers/Staff, please take time to look after yourselves. You are encouraged by the Lord to stop and do exactly that. Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink”. John 7. 37.
Interesting that Jesus said this in a LOUD voice. I sense He really wants us all to hear this.
My Prayer this week for you is that you choose to take time out to look after yourself. This is a very busy weekend for a number of reasons for the Police.
