Lauren Daigle Preaches God's Love at Ohio Prison
On August 24, Lauren Daigle performed a concert at the Ohio Reformatory for Women and spoke to women at the facility's Tapestry Therapeutic Community. In a video of Daigle's visit, she remarks this is the fifth time she has visited a prison. (In February, Daigle worshipped and visited with inmates at the Folsom Women's Facility.)
The Billboard-topping singer also preached about God's love to the inmates during her concert.
"The one thing that we can always do is look up," Daigle says in the video. "You can look up and see the sky. You can look up and see the kindness of God, and His extravagant love for each one of you. And I know sometimes that can be hard to wrap your mind around, but let me tell you something, He doesn't see you by your faults, or maybe the things that you've done or the things that have trapped you and ensnared you. But He sees you as children, as His own, beloved from the Most High King. That's who you are.
"If you ever question your identity, I tell you what—just open up a Bible somewhere and watch His sacrifice, watch His love for you. It doesn't change just because you're in here. His love for you doesn't waver just because of the things you have done or the things you felt have gripped you for your entire life. ... I see you and me as the same. I don't see us separated at all. I don't see a difference. I see you as people. We're all people. We're all on this journey of life together."
