The Thin Blue Line


The thin blue line
Amassed over time
Those who get up every morning and dress in blue
Those who walked the line for me and for you
Gone, shot, killed, set on fire
Or took their own death while trapped in mire
The job is an uphill climb every day
Standing firm in justice facing evil’s devilish ways
True, without the blue there would be no thin line
Then crime could unleash, over whelming families, couples, children, yours and mine
What you say?
We have police but evil continues to have a way?
Set down your logic
Take a bath, douse the toxic
Stop hating something good
Theres a whole world unseen, believe you should
Jesus, Our Lord, saves
Our Truth, our source of Life, our Way
He is in all things
Created birds who sing
Babies who cling
To their mamas and dads
The ones who are glad
To serve Him at a high cost
Every day there is potential loss
May those adjoined to the thin blue line
Seek Jesus every time
Every stress-filled day
Every long night, sometimes the fight not worth the pay
May good works be for Him
And glory to God go beyond the line thin
He sees every pain, every shot fired
Every death, every weight piled
May the thin blue line accept Jesus
And recieve blessings upon us
May the thin blue line honor His power His power more than able to sustain
and beyond any imagination amaze
For Jesus holds the keys to eternity
Victory and worry free
Awaits those who call His name
Saying Yes, Jesus, I need to be saved



I read an article today reminding me this battle between police and general public, or police and politicians, is spiritual.

If you choose to read, here it is:

“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You preserve my life. You stretch out Your hand against the anger of my foes; with Your right hand You save me.

The Lord will vindicate me; Your love, Lord, endures forever-do not abandon the works of Your hands” (Psalm 138:7-8).

For we who support the police, we will not please God by pointing our fingers at those who don’t. We can point to Jesus, the One who Saves, the One whose love bled to cover all our sins.

Something that weighs heavy on my heart are the police officers who die, almost daily. Have they accepted Jesus? Have their souls been told about heaven before their bodies were killed? Were they reassured of His amazing love for them?

“Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life,

Do not be afraid, for I am with you;

I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back’.

Bring my sons afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth-everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made (Isaiah 43:4-7).

Today, join me at 4pm Eastern time for a live reading of this poem and Isaiah 43. You are invited to like and follow me at so you don’t miss a live post.

I also spend time here:

The other blog I write with Jesus has a new post “Suspended Surrender”:

Thank you for being here today.

In Christ,

  1. Oh Julie, my heart goes out to you, your husband and all who are laying their lives down day after day to keep us safe in our police force. And anyone who is in an authority position stands alone in our modern culture where respect for authority is long gone. Thank you for pointing us all to Jesus, for He is and has always been our only hope. Joining you in prayer for the police officers to turn to Jesus as their Savior, Lord and Prince of Peace. Come, Lord Jesus! Blessings to you, dear sis!
