Prison in Palace!


Jeremiah 32:2 “Now at that time the army of the king of Babylon was besieging Jerusalem, and Jeremiah the prophet was shut up in the court of the guard, which was in the house of the king of Judah.”

Note: Have you sowed your offerings, if not, do it now!

As a teenager I studied  in a big, reputed convent School, we were in poverty but my parents despite our situation gave us good education;  I was very shy about our poverty though.   I remember entering a big building with three floors very proudly but we stayed in a small one room house on the top third floor.  While I read the above scripture of prophet Jeremiah being put in a prison in a palace, I remembered that stage of my life; friend there are various stages in our life and each has a purpose. After several years I understood that God had to take me through that touch terrains in my early childhood, so that I could today run a school for the poor and underprivileged kids – I understand every bit of their feelings.


Let me share one particular incident that happened in our Abide Angel Home which would help you understand the hurts inside those tender hearts.  When one particular girl whose father had left her while she was a baby, had gone home for holidays, after she returned, the children were all travelling in the van,  she was proudly narrating to her friends which I was hearing from the front seat.  She said,” my father came home, bought me new clothes, dolls, ate with us and we all went out”, children were listening to her, spellbound by her story.  Before going to bed that day, I called her to my room alone and asked her, “was all that you said true?” , she said ‘no’ and she wept.  We work in the midst of such broken hearts, I can understand the pain but one day they would understand that they were put safely in ABIDE SCHOOL and ABIDE ANGEL HOME and taken care of by God. Amen.


Because prophet Jeremiah spoke the truth, he was put in a prison inside the palace; however, God saw to it that the prison was inside the palace! Ah! Clap hands for God! Jeremiah  had access to good air, place was clean and also safe from outside dangers.  Do you understand now?  Some blessings come to us in disguise which we would be able to understand later.  God bless you!
