Homelessness

I have been homeless for the last 15 days. I have been more happy about myself and my thinking than I have in a long time. You realize one, your not the only one on this earth. and the things that we take for granted are now really appriceated. It is the little things that count.

The first week was a little crazy learning everything about the shelters, bus rides, and when to be back at the shelter so you can have a bed. I also had to learn the people in the shelter. It is quit the mix of people. I always say hi to everyone, asked them questions like “How was your day”, How are you?, Good Morning, Have a great day ETC…. Some looked at me like I was crazy, some looked at me as if I wanted something from them, and some smiled and asked back.

It really shocked me as speaking with these people that many of them have not ever been asked the questions and or maybe not at all. It made me sad. I keep doing it even to the ones that I know do not like me, and want nothing to do with me. I know in my heart they will come around, many already have.

The 2nd week many of them started asking other people, and asking me the same questions. I love seeing the results of what is being done. It is healing my heart in a lot of ways, and helping me grow in my purpose.

One issue that I am still working on with in myself and questions I have for God, and my inner spirit is why does almost everyone talk to themselves. I have been really watching. I wonder who they are talking to. I know that when my spirit starting showing herself (Gipsy) to me, I would talk to myself all day long. The book I am reading is explaining to me about my inner spirit, and how to use it.

Many of these people I can tell they are talking to themselves, God shows me. He tells me these are the people you need to speak to eventually. He has also showed me the ones I should come close to and get to know them, for they are people he sent to protect me while out here. It is amazing and I love Jesus sooooo much.  Some of these people are talking to their Spouses that have died, some are talking to their children, others ex- boyfriends, and or girlfriends, some I am not sure. I have to keep listening. I have so many evil forces coming at me. I can feel them. When I feel them I feel the angels fighting back. I start shaking,, because they are protecting me.

I do think that some of these people can be helped. So many of them need help, and better living, and treated better. The homeless is treated like crap. It is really bad. I want to change it. Almost all of them are on medication from doctors because diagnosed with PTSD, ADHA, Depression, and gave them medication and sent them out. I do not agree with this. It is all about the money these shelters get from each homeless person using services. It is out of control, and totally unfair to the homeless who are treated like crap. Makes me really sad.

Everyone gave up on these people who have been traumatized and sent them to be homeless, basically told them they would never have anything different. Almost everyone that I have spoken to have shared their story with me almost immediately. I can relate to them. I love Jesus and all he has done for me, and putting me in a position to help these people.

Thank you Lord for all you do for me and everyone around us, thank you for giving a safe place to stay and food to eat. In Jesus name I pray Amen

Message from God

There comes a season in life when one really has to take a step back and look at their life. First, build a relationship with God, and he will never fail you. His relationship, and building a foundation based off of his word is really what it is all about.

There comes a time when you are sick and tired of being sick and tired.  What is more important? What does it take to grow up? I have been asking this question to myself. I see myself making the same mistake over and over again. I have ruined my reputation, nearly everyday. I have disobeyed God over and over and over. I know he He told me he made me righteous because of my faith. That will never be destroyed and will always be protected.

There comes a time in ones life, when CHANGE is the only way out. Walking out of a situation to become homeless, no money, no food, ETC….. I am so very glad I finally did it. There is a saying, A women is like a rubber band. You can stretch her a long way, but once she’s done she’s done.  It is the best decision I have made.

The message my God sent me when I got to where I am now.

Fear not: you will no longer live in shame. Don’t be afraid; there is no more disgrace for you. You will no longer live the shame of your youth and your sorrows of widowhood.

For your creator will be your husband; the lord of your heaven armies is his name. He is your redeemer, the holy one of Israel, the God of all earth. For the lord has called you back from your grief, as though you were a young wife abandoned by her husband., says your God. For a brief moment I abandoned you, but with great compassion I take you back. In a burst of anger I turned my face away for a little while. But with everlasting Love I will have compassion on you, Says the Lord your Redeemer. Isaiah 54:4-8

Can God Make You Incompentent?

The answer to this question is YES.

When in the midst of finding my purpose, I was not obeying God at all. I was still living the worldly ways, I was a sinner in all ways.

The Bible says Fire test the purity of silver and gold, but the Lord test the heart. Proverbs 17:3

I personally really had to do some soul searching to realize what I really wanted to accomplish. Relying on my own thinking, I would not be able to do anything I was called to do. I would sit and argue with God, even pray to him why can’t I do anything. Why do I always just sit around thinking about what I should be doing. Then I would start beating myself up about it, and I would go right back to bad habits. We are truly our own worst enemy.

He has not despised or disdained the suffering of the afflicted one; he has not hidden his face but has listened to his cries for help. PSALM 22:24

It would be back to square one. I always knew everything was going to be okay. I would argue with myself about this. Every time I did my father in heaven would give me signs to just keep my faith.

The Almighty God, will place a heavy hand on one, or place a thorn in your side to make you humble, and to obey him. I found my plan through his son Jesus Christ, and still living in sin. God wants us to be patient like he is with us. He brings everything around when he wants to, not when we want to. If he has to use this kind of discipline on one to get it. He will.

The Lord wants us to fear him in every aspects of our lives, and will go to all measures to make sure you do, if that is what he chooses

Fear of the Lord is a life-giving fountain, it offers escapes from the snares of death. Proverbs 14:27

If you are stuck in your life, and have a relationship with our heavenly father, it is time to find your purpose with him. He has you stuck for a reason. If you do not have a relationship with him, now is the time to start building one. I would be more than happy to assist with this, for I have a direct contact with God.

Fear of the Lord, will save your life, and help you achieve more than you can imagine.

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, fir we know they are all good for us. And endurance develops strength of character in us, and character strengthens our confident expectation will not disappoint us. For we know how dearly God  loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. Romans 5:3-5

See God wants us to love him like he loves us. He gave his only son for our sins. Jesus did not do anything wrong and yet he died on the cross for us. We should always think of Jesus and looking through his eyes when we face struggles and trials in our life for they were brought to us by God for a reason. For every season there is a reason. Just be thankful, and Fear the Lord.

Thank you,

Importance of Humlity.

It is important to practice humility in everyday life because he grows our spirit and soul of God. When people struggle with humility it stems from some kind of shame. The word humility is different from being humiliated.

As we build our relationship with God he teaches us how to have humility, and be humble, to rely on only him for advice, and to let God take care of our problems. That is why Jesus died for us, and for our sins. He saved the world by living a life of misery, and was blamed for all of our mistakes. He took the beating for us. He was okay with it, because that was God’s purpose for him. He thanked God, for he trusted the Lord that his plan was far greater than the life he suffered. Again, Jesus thanked him for it.

That is what the Lord wants us to do with our lives. We get beat up everyday, with bills, relationships, traffic, anger, addictions of all kinds, just by everyday life. What do we do as humans when we fall? Who do we blame? We either blame someone else, or something else, or God. In the bible God teaches us to be humble in our circumstances, because that is what Jesus did for us. He was taught humility and humbled himself before God and everyone else for he trusted the Lord with all his heart. He knew there was something better waiting for him.

Kind words are like honey-sweet to the soul and healthy for the body. Proverbs 16:24

The rich and the poor have the same thing in common: The Lord made them both. Proverbs 22:2

Don’t say ” I will get even for this wrong” Wait for the Lord he will handle the matter. Proverbs 21:22

As our walk and knowledge of the words written in the bible, we are shown how to be humble and trust in the Lord to take care of our problems and sufferings.

How many Christians are in this world?

How many people are there in the world?

In June 2013, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs’ Population Division estimated the world population at approximately 7.2 billion. UN projections show a continued increase in population in the near future with a steady decline in population growth rate; global population is expected to reach between 8.3 and 10.9 billion by 2050.

The number of Christians around the world has nearly quadrupled in the last 100 years, from about 600 million in 1910 to more than 2 billion in 2010. But the world’s overall population also has risen rapidly, from an estimated 1.8 billion in 1910 to 6.9 billion in 2010.Dec 19, 2011

America is broken

Thank you Kenneth. I agree with you, Americans, or people in general are stuck on negativity. If it is cold, people want it to be hot. If it is hot people want it to be cold. We are always complaining about something.

I read in the bible the other day, there are 2 things in the bible that if we do not have them, we are nothing. Love your neighbor, and trusting our Lord, Jesus.

I do believe that every single human being should do the 12 steps. Every one has something that they can get rid of, no one is perfect. It is a great way to draw closer to God, build a relationship with a higher power. Maybe just maybe we can all stop complaining and make this world not so broken. Thanks again

A BROKEN CULTURE

by Kenneth Justice

~ As I sat at my computer yesterday, looking at images of Baltimore burning, I couldn’t help but think that our country is broken.

Conversation at the coffeehouse has all but simmered down lately. Thanks in large part to computers and WiFi, it becomes more rare to see strangers connect with each other in positive dialogue. Instead, the scene that plays out at the coffee house most days is a myriad of people with headphones in their ears, and their eyes staring blankly at glowing screens.

A good friend of mine called yesterday and bemoaned the heat that he is getting for moving into a predominantly black city, “Almost all of my friends and family are trying to convince me that I’m wrong to be moving there….and all I can think is that its because they are racist; they don’t believe a young white guy should…

Many photographers display watermarks — commonly known in the form of a visible marker such as text, a logo, or a signature — on photographs for various reasons, while others strongly prefer not to add them. Here, we’ve asked a handful of WordPress photographers their takes. You’ll read a mix of opinions from bloggers who take pictures for different reasons, their various experiences and methods, and links to other sources of information.
