The Cry of the Desperate

desperatemanA letter from an abandoned soul says:

“God, give me a reason to live, a place to fit in. No one cares if I live or die. Where are your people from the bible?

Your Word says in John 13:35:
35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

So many places have people who stare at me because of how I look or smell. There are people who stay together and do not let me into their groups. It is actually worse than the world. There is still jealousy, back biting, and competition. There are some who speak but if I miss service one day I am criticized in some places. If I don’t fit in, the friends I made while there, no longer speak to me if I leave. It’s like being banished. I could be trapped in my house sick. If I’m not in service for two weeks it’s like no one knows I’m missing. How can this be the remnant of God’s people? Where is the love of Jesus if the tithes are more important than the people? Why do building repairs get talked about more than the hopeless, homeless, depressed, suicidal and abused …etc? What happened to “feed my sheep”?
What hope is there for the lost or new believers to survive? This isn’t every church, but it’s the majority. If this is what the christian menu is serving, it’s understandable why people are lost.
This to some might offend, to others an eye opener, and to some a reality. Which of these represent you?  Have any of these situations occurred in your life? What I do know is that the Truth shall set you free.
God, I feel abandoned by today’s church and confused about the unspoken message being put out by church institutions. For now, I will stay in my home and pray. God, I will seek your face in the secret place. Lord, continue to direct my path.

Signed: Desperately seeking a church with Tongue talking unafraid Jesus followers.”

Daily Bread

We started off our day busy as usual. The calendar for the day was filled. We went from one place to the next seeking to get it all done. While fulfilling our schedule, we came across this man. He was on the streets asking strangers for his daily bread.
For this man to accomplish simple daily basic sustenance he asks strangers for help. He relies on the mercy of others to get by. I can’t even imagine what he is going through.
In addition to getting by, he told us he needs cancer medicine. He was diagnosed with cancer and can’t afford his medicine. Lord, I am humbled by this man. His need is great and his pain was intense. This man was so pleasant and content with his circumstances. God used us to bless this man and pray for him. He said that the pain in his neck where the cancer was, was intense. This pain, he said got worse at night. We told him of Jesus and how he paid the price for all healing. We laid hands on him and prayed in Jesus name for the pain to leave. In about 20 minutes there was a change. The man stood in wonder. He said, I can’t believe it….the pain is gone. I can’t believe it. No, seriously guys, its gone. No, seriously I don’t think we need to still get my medicine. Praise God!
We got him some food after we prayed. In the car that day, he gave his life to the Lord. The goodness of God leads to repentance.
This man was hungry today and expected to make money to get fed. God heard his cry and healed this man. Sometimes we are hungry but it’s not physical bread we need.
The word says, “give us this day our daily bread” God still does miracles, if only we would believe and lean not on our own understanding. Ask God today to feed you. I guarantee it won’t be your usual meal.
