JAMES CHAPTER 1 27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
Ï wonder sometimes ,, When I could I went door to door in my neighborhood and Got to know People yes ,, I had many doors slammed in my Face ,, But most where nice ,, I would get to know them ,, We have this lady in Town we live in the country and she has nobody so my daughter goes and takes her shopping and helps her she brings her laundry here and my sister does it wish I could ,, She cries when I call her she is so lonely she lives alone and her son is in prison and she is in her 60s and she has no family ,, I wonder so often how many are like this ,, Who need just to see someone ,, she has no car no way around ,, it is sad yet one call or visit means the world to her ,, Please ck around you and know your people ,, I know its awful now but I remember one time I found this family and the parents were on drugs but I went in and they had no beds no heat and it was winter and she cried and showed me her refrigerator thank God she had that but no food ,,, I went back to church and we bought them gas ,, and food and got beds ,, clothes so on ,, Many said we should not help them they had 4 children best I remember ,, and I can tell you it is not those Children's fault the parents are addicted to drugs ,, I will say this they all came to church and the mom got saved and the last I knew she got off drugs we can make a difference if we show GODs love ,, I love you all it just breaks my heart to hear this lady cry ,,, Be Blessed Betty

    Powerful message! Praise God for the way He worked in the family of those children and their mother. We never know how He will use our lives, our words and our actions to reach others for Him. We just surrender and He does the work, He gets all the praise. You and your family are such a blessing to so many people. I will be praying for the woman you speak of who is lonely, there are so many like this and you are right that we need to be on the look out for the needs of others. We are to show God's love and let His light shine through us. God bless you and your sister for all you do for Him to serve others. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful message with us, we all need this reminder. emoticon emoticon

    What a beautiful example of loving people to God right where they are. You are a wonderful person, Betty. God showed you a way to help but you chose to do so and for that you should feel peace.

    Thank you for the reminder to be compassionate and look for those who need our companionship or help on an ongoing basis.

    It is certainly heartbreaking to see situations like this. You have made a difference in more than one person's life in tough situations! Blessings. I feel for that poor woman.

    Betty you have a wonderful gift! That gift is so rare! We sound be doing that as a Christian but we don't. When I was raped and pregnant, a friend reached out to me like that. I thank God daily she did. She gave me he maturity clothes, she became my lamaze coach, and become my sister!

    We ARE the body of Christ. I think sometimes some of us forget that. Thank you for the reminder!

    Wonderful Post. Well Said! We need to come out of our comfort zone, stop thinking about what we need and begin to focus on the needs of others. That truly is what God wants from us. Thanks again for this message.
