Big Ups For City Rescue Mission!

OK I admit….I failed to post a blog yesterday!But today I want to give a huge shout out for City Rescue Mission here in Jacksovnille. It has been extremely cold here. It’s almost as if we skipped Fall and move directly into Winter. The Florida Times- Union highlighted the significant work of CRM in a way that really made me glad to see that there are many groups out their doing phenomenal work for those less fortunate. While I’m sure that there are many others wotking in the same capacity, CRM really stood out..

Jesus said in Matthew 25:35 For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home.

This was the living Gospel on display. Keep up the good work CRM! To read the article click the link below. I’ve also posted this to my Facebook page.

Children Being Dropped Off In Nebraska

I’m reading this article on CNN about parents dropping their children off at various locations in Nebraska….mesmerized. http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/11/14/nebraska.safe.haven/index.html?iref=newssearch YOU MUST READ THIS STORY

I’ll admit as a parent it can be extremely difficult. However, the thought of leaving my child with total strangers is disturbing. How can it be? Children didn’t ask to come here. Many were born out the will of two adults.

Yes, there are things that happen such as rape. I don’t wish that upon anyone. But for the majority of births two grown folks knew exactly were they were doing. There must be other options for parents to avoid these beautiful gifts to the world being left without the certainty of care and compassion of a responsible adult.

Below are a few alternatives that come to mind about this awful trend that’s taking place as possible options for parents and guardians:

1. Speak with a church in Nebraska about available caretakers.

2. Speak with a church in Nebraska about residential services for a home if needed.

3. Speak with a church in Nebraska about financial assistance to continue provision of basic necessities.

4. Speak with a church in Nebraska about referral services.

5. Speak with a church in Nebraska regarding temporary options through any Health & Human Service agencies

Lay Aside The Weight

In light of everything that’s taking place in our economy. I think it’s really important that we self-examine to see if there is any place in our lives that need trimming. It’s very easy to point fingers at high earning CEOs with disgust as their companies crumble faster that Graham crackers in a new box. Yet, if we are honest with ourselves we very well would find waste in our own lives. Much of this is nothing more than exra stuff that’s not needed.Since  we are called to be the light of the world we have a mandate to ensure that there’s nothing that would prevent us from being just that. This weight, that diminishes the light, could be too much unhealthy eating, unnecessary shopping, self-pride, alcohol, dishonesty, illegal drugs, illicit sex, you name it- whatever it is. There is no little sin vs. big sin. Ask God to give you the strength to let it GO! Our words have power. So much so that with our tongue we can control life and death…check it out in the book of Proverbs!

Speak no more weights in your life. I know that’s why I’m doing. January- why wait for a New Year’s resolution. Get rid of it now.
That’s my story….and I’m sticking with it. What’s yours?
