Happy Independence Day

As I sit here in my room above the US Vets program in Las Vegas on this 4th of July I am listening to some very patriotic music by a variety of military bands. I am very thankful that the good Lord allowed me to be a citizen of this great nation, where at least I know that I am free to be all that God intended me to be. I don’t need anyone else to tell me how to live my life or what to believe. I follow my God given conscience of what is right and what is wrong (see Rom. Chapter One).

Well,  I don’t feel like ranting much today so I’m going to go and enjoy my 4th. They are having a BBQ downstairs today to feed the homeless. If anyone can make a small donation to US VETS it would be greatly appreciated. Mention me in your prayers. Happy 4th to you all. Love: Mike 😁

Happy 4th of July

In this day and age when our liberal politicians are so obsessed with being so PC and are afraid of offending other nations or groups of people so that the US of A has lost so much respect, even among our Allies, they need to go back to their history books and learn from our past heritage those things that has made America the greatest nation on earth. “Make America Great Again!” God Bless America this Independence Day!

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. 🐸

New Website Address

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.

Taming the Tongue

charlieChaplin

Have you ever noticed how so many people open their mouths and speak without considering the consequences of their words? I call this “engaging the mouth before the brain.” Once words come out they cannot be easily if ever recalled. It may be that most people don’t really care about the feelings of others, especially strangers. The old saying that: “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words shall never hurt me” is a lie straight from Satan. I am reminded of the passage of Scripture found in James chapter three that so eloquently speaks on this subject:

1 My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment. 2 For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body. 3 Indeed, we put bits in horses’ mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body. 4 Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires.

5 Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles! 6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell. 7 For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. 8 But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. 10 Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so. 11 Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? 12 Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh. (James 3:1-12)
