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. 🐸
One of the greatest chapters in the Bible. I wish and pray that more people would take to heart the message of Corinthians chapter 13. This would be a much more beautiful world.
Much of the time I feel very lonely (for human companionship), but I know that I am never truly alone.
Remember and pray for our nation and world. Especially in the coming year as we have a Presidential election. That God will give us Godly leaders. How much longer will God be patient? Come quickly, Lord Jesus, and exercise your righteous judgement on a evil and sinful world.
There is so much hatred and evil in the world that we need to be grateful for the many blessings that God has given us. He is a very patient God. Nevertheless: “Come Lord Jesus! Yes, come quickly!”
This is probably the best collection of inspirational and uplifting collection of hymns ever put together. Approximately 225 hymns, over eight hours worth. The graphics are really beautiful also. ENJOY and may the Lord Jesus the Christ bless you richly in all things through this music.
Think about it! Do you want eternal life in God’s kingdom? Or eternal death (separated from God for all eternity)? Make your choice today, because it will be a very sad thing if you make the wrong decision. What if you live to be 100 years old? What is that compared to eternity? You can have an abundant, joy filled life here on earth even if Jesus and God is just a myth. Jesus said in John 14:6: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
I am reposting this FB entry from June Towle that I found to be very appropriate and perhaps helpful to people who may be suffering depression.
I’m really struggling with that saying,
“Fake it til you make it.”
Take Robin Williams for example… This man spent his whole life making people laugh yet no one knew off his pain. He faked it and he didn’t make it. I really hope people find the courage to get real and be honest about their pain. A burden shared is a burden lessened.
You are not alone… Talk about it.
You can’t get the help and support you need if you don’t share it.
I CARE and I think you matter.
