Why I Do What I Do? Print E-mail

It seems so rare to ever find out the impact God has on lives when we allow Him to work through us. Especially when, like I do , we allow him to dispatch us through the "known world". Many folks think that there is only a foreign mission field. I am learning and having reinforced daily that the good old USA has many folks that are in need of just plain Christian Compassion as well.

Good Morning Colonel,

It has been several months since I last emailed you. I apologize for this, but I have been very busy the last couple of months. My company paid for me to get my PHR certificate with the understanding that if I failed I would be responsible of reimbursing the company the one thousand dollars they paid. I really couldn’t afford to fail. Glory to God I passed the test just over two weeks ago.

The following was received from an officer I met at the National Crime Prevention Conference in Washington DC recently.

 I was packing up my exhibit and took time to unpack and find Tim a CLEF pin which I gave to him as we sat and shared testimonies and talked for about an hour or so about how the Holy Spirit was using us in law enforcement and how difficult it can be to live up to the expectations of many of those folks we serve and with whom we serve. We talked about some of the disappointments and difficulties we were experiencing in our loves or careers and tried to encourage each other.

I want you to notice how the smallest things in life like just listening and talking with someone you meet during your "busy" day can have an unexpected impact on their lives and therefore on your own.

I often wonder if I am really doing what the Holy Spirit wants me to do and I used to spend (or waste) time worrying about it. When I finally realized that all I needed to do was be available to be a part of a solution and not the entire answer, I was able to more easily recognize the many "windows of opportunity" that I had been passing by each day while looking for and asking God to open for me some "doors of opportunity". I finally heard Him say "are you SWAT or not". So don't be slow like me on the up-take. When a window of opportunity opens, make a SWAT entry and when you do the Holy Spirit will use you to make an impact in some way I am positive.

Here are Tim's Comments:

Some comments from a fellow worker in both the fields of the Lord and the mean streets of Florida and California ,Mike Dye, who was a Sgt on a FL Sheriff's Office while I was down there as a Sgt on another Sheriff's Office and then He left to become a U.S. Deputy Marshal in California. He is now back in FL as a deputy sheriff once again but He brings 20 years of experience back to the streets as well as his Christian Witness

You and I know that there are way too many "Christian" organizations out there that are not really doing God's work and never will be because of their own selfish desires and corporate needs.

I believe that God has His hand in everything that is going on in the world right now. He will keep His hand on our ministries as long as we remain humble and stay focused on the goal He set before us in Matthew 28: 19-20.

I have added a link to your website on my own, just as you have added my link to your links page. Thank you again for being out there to give me a "Ray of Hope" that not all Christian Chaplains have forgotten about "making disciples and planting the seeds."

Be Blessed
