Psalm 82:3-4

psalm8234Last night, I decided I was going to start the 30 Day Husband Encouragement Challenge.  After reading the first challenge, I sat down and went over a few solid LE related Bible verses. I really struggled over which one to choose, but wrote out (on a very fancy torn out scrap piece of notebook paper, mind you) the following:

“Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. – Psalm 82:3-4”

I stuck it in the pocket of his uniform where he keeps his small notebook, but honestly wasn’t sure he’d find it at all today. I half expected it to end up in the wash! A few minutes ago, he messaged me the following:

“I just found your note in my pocket. I liked it. I wish I would have found it earlier, because I just got done with a child abuse interview.”

I had no idea what to say, so I just replied that I love him.

I think, sometimes, with all that’s going on in the world, we forget that there are still the “everyday” victims and struggles. The ones that aren’t televised; the ones no one will probably ever hear of (outside of those in the victim’s immediate circle and those involved in the related judicial processes), but that weigh very heavily on our LEOs. I didn’t register when I picked up this “encouragement challenge” that I would be encouraging not only my husband, but the man who will hold people’s whole world in his hands for a brief moment in time. It’s a much bigger picture than I, admittedly, first understood!
