Good Morning World!

Jesus

Yes, Lord Jesus, come quickly that this promise may come true. We need You in this sinful, hurting world. Recent events in Las Vegas, my hometown, is another indicator of how badly we need your appearance.

Caring People

prov-024-01

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. 🐸

Do You Want Eternal Life?

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.”

Hope

words_of_wisdom

Not much more that I can say that isn’t said above except I seem to strive at times to live by these words of wisdom. I have always maintained hope in my life even when I was at my lowest points in life. I.e. when I was homeless and living on the streets I always found another recovery program to get into with the hope of getting back on my feet and making something of myself. Even being unemployed and living in a very small studio apartment and being lazy and complacent I have faith in God that He has a great future for me. I have been in prayer about God’s will for my future. I do have a vision of what it can be.

My Hope

Ain’t this the truth. If we keep our focus on our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we can have a great hope for our future. I know that I do! We can’t focus on our mistakes of the past, esp. if we were living in the flesh. But, those of us who are being saved can look forward to being with our Lord in the present world as well as the world to come. PRAISE the LORD!!!!!!!!
