Reflections for Senior Corporal Earl James "Jamie" Givens, III

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Glenn was killed in the line of duty.

To the Givens family, fellow officers, and all who call Jamie beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace. I hope that your family knows that a nation mourned for you.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Sr. Corporal Givens gave to his community and the citizens of Texas and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on July 21, 2018.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray Psalm 91 over all LEO’s and this prayer also:

“Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are Your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

I know that God sends those angels to watch over our officers, sometimes to protect them and sometimes to whisk our officers into His presence.

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

I have lifted your family to God every morning for over seven years. I pray that Jamie's life and death will bring glory to God.

Trust those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

"Greater love, hath no man, than a Man, lay down his life
For a friend", these precious words, are so applicable, for Sr.Corporal Stevens, and others, everyday, who wake up, and put their Police Uniforms on. You all are willing to risk your lives, as Jesus said. We thank Corporal Stevens, and thank God, and I pray for you, ' literally', in my position everyday. But Jesus says some other words, that I want you to remember, " I SEND A COMFORTER, THE HOLY SPIRIT, WHO WILL BOTH COMFORT, AND STRENGTHEN YOU"! I ' ll be there with you, be steadfast, Rev.Deninah Goodwin, Volunteer Chaplain, for DPD, Sr.Pastor, of Zion Christian Ministries

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

Brother Mongo..Man why is it the good ones that are taken way too early? It's been a few years, but the memories are as fresh as yesterday. We've shared many miles, millions of laughs and all were nothing but the best memories I have of you. What an honor to be able to ride next to you and call you "friend and brother". I know you'll be up there, smiling down upon us, as you look for your next adventure...Save us all a spot, would ya? Right up in the front where all the fun happens....right next to you...Until then.

May God watch over the family and fellow officers these heroes worked with. We can only imagine their pain. But we can sympathize with them and we must support them. This is what the Patriots and Heroes looks like folks. Running to the danger when all others run away from it. Selfless and fearless to the end. They now work heavens Beat. And are in God's hands forever. Ever watching down on us all.
