“Humble And Caring”

“This was confirmed by a Correctional Services source who added that the media’s image of Pistorius does not tally with the inmate who has proved to be “humble and caring”.

“The Oscar I’ve come to know in jail is kind-hearted and cares for his fellow inmates. He buys food for those who can’t afford it or those who are far away from their relatives. And he does this without asking for anything in return.”

“Oscar also doesn’t deny what he did and shows remorse every day without faking it or to manipulate people’s opinions. This is the side he shows in jail and people should stop judging him.”

You Can Come Out Victorious

Hi,

I have always been an Oscar fan; I’ve always been amazed at your story, how you grew up what challenges you faced and overcame and how you demonstrated that no matter what cards you’re dealt in life – you can come out victorious.
I want to encourage you Oscar to remember that… we may not understand when things don’t work out as planned in our lives but we can be certain that God will use these circumstances for good.

I came across the following whilst I was praying for you on https://www.gotquestions.org/life-Paul.html:

So, what can we learn from the life of the apostle Paul? First, we learn that God can save anyone. The remarkable story of Paul repeats itself every day as sinful, broken people all over the world are transformed by God’s saving grace in Jesus Christ. Some of these people have done despicable things to other human beings, while some just try to live a moral life thinking that God will smile upon them on the day of judgment.

When we read the story of Paul, we are amazed that God would allow into heaven a religious extremist who murdered innocent women and children. Today, we might see terrorists or other criminals as unworthy of redemption because their crimes against humanity are just too great. The story of Paul is a story that can be told today—he isn’t worthy in our eyes of a second chance, yet God granted him mercy. The truth is that every person matters to God, from the “good, decent,” average person to the “wicked, evil,” degenerate one. Only God can save a soul from hell.

Second, we learn from the life of Paul that anyone can be a humble, powerful witness for Jesus Christ. Arguably, no other human figure in the Bible demonstrated more humility while sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ as Paul. Acts 20:19 tells us that he “served the Lord with all humility and with tears and with trials that happened to [him] through the plots of the Jews.”

In Acts 28:31, Paul shares the good news of Jesus Christ: “Boldly and without hindrance he preached the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ.” Paul was not afraid to tell others what the Lord had done for him. Paul spent all his days, from conversion to martyrdom, working tirelessly for the kingdom of God.
Finally, we learn that anyone can surrender completely to God. Paul was fully committed to God. In Philippians 1:12–14, Paul wrote from prison, “I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel, so that it has become known throughout the whole imperial guard and to all the rest that my imprisonment is for Christ. And most of the brothers, having become confident in the Lord by my imprisonment, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.” Despite his circumstances, Paul praised God and continually shared the good news (see also Acts 16:22–25 and Philippians 4:11–13). Through his hardships and suffering, Paul knew the outcome of a life well lived for Christ. He had surrendered his life fully, trusting God for everything. He wrote, “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21). Can we make the same claim?

My Prayer for you Oscar is that you may lean on God, surrender to Him, ask Him to show you how you can share and spread His love in the situation that you’re in and watch Him change you from the inside out. Only God can do that.
Whatever labels people place on you are irrelevant; God created you perfect in His eyes and image. Having your identity lie in the hands of other can only lead to emptiness… Let you identity lie in Christ our saviour.

Best wishes, love and hugs from a friend you never knew you had lol,
