Spiritual gifts are given for works of service so that the body of Christ is built up. From Charmayne Mason’s point of view, her gift is the life sentence she endures with no time off for good behavior. Her struggle between purpose and self-preservation becomes the battle royal that pits her past pain against the destiny God has ordained for her life.
“Charmayne Mason, I have taken into consideration your age. Included in this determination have been the compelling testimony of the eyewitness and the brutality of your crime. I therefore have no other choice than to sentence you to ten years in the state penitentiary for the crime of murder in the second degree.”
How could this be? From my first memory I have served God. I have felt his presence and have lived with the pain, heartache and responsibility of the gift entrusted to me. If righting the wrongs of the world were not His intensions, then why would He allow me to see and feel things that others can’t?
