My favorite month of the year. Celebrating the birth of my Savior. Looking forward to a very productive 2017. So much to do I hardly know where to begin. Pray for me and our country. I just turned 60 and am unemployed and broke but am blessed with many spiritual gifts that I know that I can use for the glory of the kingdom of God. I am praying that the Lord will open doors of opportunity for me to serve Him. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Sitting here thinking about all the good and caring people in the world. With all the evil that the news media is always portraying it’s sometimes difficult to realize that the vast majority of people in this world are basically good people. Most people regardless of their ideology want the same things in life, i.e. food, shelter, safe home for their children etc. The truly evil people, like mass murderers are a very small minority.
During my time as a Homeless person most people that I met seemed to be kinda apathetic to the suffering around them. They are probably wrapped up in their own thoughts and problems. I know that before I became homeless I never really noticed Homeless People. I supposed they existed same as they do today, I just never saw them.
I could tell many stories of how kind people were to me when I was living on the streets. The many instances when I woke up in a doorway and someone had left me some food and money while I was sleeping. There are also many Christian agencies that provide physical as well as spiritual services to the Homeless. Such as the Church group that provided lunch to the Veterans here at US Vets today. One of my favorite radio programs is “Unshackled” from the Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago. They tell of how Jesus can and does change lives.
I’m in the process of putting together my testimonial website in the hope that it’ll be a blessing to other people who have been through similar situations as myself. Plus website design is kinda a hobby of mine so I’m also getting some satisfaction out of the project. So stay tuned for the announcement of its launch. Hopefully soon, if I don’t get lazy and procrastinate. Another of my shortcomings.
Well, I’ll be saying, “Good Bye” for now. May the Lord continue to bless you and your families. Especially all you Fathers tomorrow on Father’s Day. My father went home to be with the Lord several years ago and I still miss him. Also because of my previous lifestyle I’ve missed out on the pleasures of fatherhood or being a grandfather. 🐸
Excellent movie about the ministry of Jesus for this Holy Week. Enjoy!
I just felt a need or an urging from the Holy Spirit to send out a blessing. I’ve been meditating recently on how blessed I am living in the USA compared to most people in the world. I may be poor and unemployed, but I’m healthy, well fed and have a warm bed to sleep in. What more could a guy want?
Well, actually this is my old website with a slightly different address. My website host said that I exceeded my CPU limit with the other one, because I have a free site. They want me to pay for premium, which being broke and unemployed as I am I can’t afford right now. This is just kinda a hobby for right now anyway, but I’m hoping to turn it into a freelance business one day. I am studying front-end webdesign right now and have been to a few classes on the subject. I hope to some day design sites for Christian Organizations as well as other ministries for the Lord.
Anyway, for some good inspiration and to learn more about me and my ambitions which I believe is in the Lord’s will for me since I am endeavoring to glorify Him and His kingdom, for it does say in Psalms 37:4: “Delight yourself also in the LORD,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.” Go to: Ozzie’s Personal Site.
But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt. 19:14)
My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. (1 John 3:18)
This is true in my experience, especially when I was a Homeless person. Most people seemed to be indifferent to my situation, but I did meet a lot of very nice and wonderful people. I could tell a bunch of stories how people were generous to me. Of course I ran into the occasional bad or evil person, but they were very few.
