Working with the homeless day in and day out can be exhausting at times. There’s so much heart ache out there on any given day. So many people will come up to you and tell you all about their problems, and they expect an answer to those problems. Very rarely does it happen that I’m unable to help them due to having nothing to say, but it does happen. 99% of the time the Holy Spirit guides my lips on what to say and given an example throughout the Bible. This is totally awesome because the Bible is a cure ALL for our ailments. I say all because to this day I haven’t found any problem in my life that hasn’t already happen and been solved by God. I had a vanity problem and so did Samson in the book of judges. I was sexually promiscuous like Mary Magdalene found in Luke 7. I wrestled with God like Jacob in Genesis. I even struggle with sinning the same in Romans 7. Everything you need to know is written in Gods word and can be found if we just take a look. The devil uses the same tactics over the years to get us to follow him and it to is found in God’s word. Prepare yourself to receive it all and God bless your journey.
