Helping the Homeless

Charity starts at home and we need more people to reach out to the homeless and less fortunate. With so many cities making it illegal to reach out one way we can make a difference is to work with those that have set up organizations to help. I know this one personally and I volunteer there. These people have a heart for God and compassion for the people that have needs that nobody else can  help them with.
They help people recover their lost identification documents, they feed people, they  help them get much needed supplies like clothing, shampoo, toothpaste and more. They also help people get medical care, shelter, and transportation. That is just the tip of the iceberg and they need support!
I for one will give support to this wonderful Ministry. With all the disasters that are making people homeless all over the USA today this is a Ministry that is truly needed. I can’t help but think that I could be in this position someday and I would want someone to care enough to help me. I have been homeless and it is no fun. Thank you for your kind donations. God bless you!

Conversation

Granted I like to talk. Yes I am very talkative for sure. Of course my husband says I talk too much, but I do take a breath on occasion. I try to pause when I am conversing, after I finish making my point, and give the other person a chance to say something. It is called a conversation for a reason. Now if I am preaching or lecturing, you probably won’t get a word in edgewise, but in a conversation, pauses are proper etiquette.
“Yes I have a reason for all this. lol”
There is a time when one should listen. If you do all the talking and never listen how are you supposed to grow? Hypothetically if I were to meet Jesus and we started talking to one another, just how in the world would I learn anything from Him if I didn’t pause to listen to what He had to tell me?
I do believe in listening as well as talking. When we listen to what other people have to say we are showing them that we value them as a human being. If while they are talking I am looking around and obviously not listening to them, I am showing them that I really could care less about them.
We can never really get to know somebody unless we listen to what they have to say. By talking we reveal ourselves to others. Yes people are not always interested in the same things, which makes to hard to listen or talk to others at times. But we should at least make a concerted effort to validate others by listening to their story and maybe politely bowing out when the opportunity arises.
It is frustrating to no end when someone completely monopolizes a conversation and won’t let you say anything, when you would like to make a point about something they have been talking about. I find it hard to talk to people that do that but I know some of them and talk to them anyway.  🙂 I still love them though.
I do think that conversation should be taught when we are young. People should teach their children to allow others to interject something while they are talking to one another. The definition of conversation is: the informal exchange of ideas by spoken words. Key word; exchange! lol
In case your wondering this morning I had an experience with this subject. Thank you for tolerating my little rant. 

People are not the enemy

I am not one to talk politics a lot but here is how I feel led to approach this subject. Let us pray that the people that are spewing hate on both sides will actually find Jesus for real! So many say they are saved but are still walking in darkness. When and if they do find the Lord and the light is shining in their hearts they will see their sinful deeds and repent of their wicked ways. That is the only real answer! Jesus said that once we know the truth it will set us free. People are in bondage and they do not even realize it. They have strong holds that need to be broken. Spiritual warfare is needed in a mighty way here.
Ephesians 6:12 New King James Version (NKJV)
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
People are not our enemy. The spirits behind their actions are.

The War Within: Flesh Vs. Spirit

This is an excellent sermon which I would recommend to anyone!  This is where grace comes in.  When we walk by the Spirit we are no longer under the law. To do this we must keep our heart happy in God “By meditating on the trustworthiness and preciousness of God’s promises until our hearts are free of all fretting and guilt and greed. This is how the Holy Spirit fills and leads.”  When we do this the Spirit leads us into the things of God naturally and we are no longer under the law. If we are not walking by the Spirit we are still under the law because we are still living in the flesh!  This is very eye opening! 🙂  Worth a good study too.
