What are people worth?
What are the people that YOU know worth?
What are your kids worth?
What is your spouse worth?
What is your neighbor worth?
What are the people who you encounter everyday worth?
Ever look around you while you are in a store or crowded room and wonder...
Who are these people?
What is their story?
Are they believers in the Most High God?
Do they know Him?
Where will they wake up when they die?
If they suffer when they are dying will they suffer more when they wake up in a Godless eternity?
Is Yeshua (Jesus) their true Salvation?
Do you know Him? He is LOVE. He loves you! He died for YOU! He wants you, your family, your neighbor, your coworker to KNOW Him.
Is your family generally healthy? Do you come down with the flu or colds and catch everything that people are passing around the stores, churches, or schools?
This is a series about how to stay healthy.
First, we believe the Bible. You have to believe what God says AND put it into practice. That can be very difficult when it comes to our health or the health of our kids! A lot of people immediately want to run to the doctor. When they get there, they expect a prescription and unfortunately a lot of doctors give in. Some doctors don't ~ that's good!
Faith means nothing without action. How much faith do you have?
The first place to start is with Scriptures and, in later posts, I will list vitamins and talk about eating habits. Wisdom is in His Word. The beginning of knowledge is the fear of the LORD, Yahweh.
The PINK are promise words:
Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 3:7-8 Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your body and refreshment to your bones.
(That is enough to keep you busy for the rest of your life!)
Proverbs 16:24 Pleasant words are a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
(NO negative thoughts or words!!!!)
Exodus 15:26 And He (Yahweh) said, "If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, andkeep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the LORD (Yahweh), am your healer."
James 4:14-16 Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer offered in faith willrestore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him.
Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.

We went to Candy Cane's house today. She was very grateful for the items that everyone so graciously blessed her with.
We went to Salvation Army (one of my faves) and got her 2 office like chairs that she can use at her table or in her living room. We also got her a small child's dresser. It's at least big enough to put her personals in.
She had a blanket on the floor (that she sits and sleeps on), a cd player and some books. In the kitchen she had a table and an old stove. In her bedroom she had a garbage bag of clothes and a picture of Jesus on the wall. In her bathroom she had her clothes soaking in the tub and some more clothes hanging from a shower rod.
While we were out and about I told someone about what we were trying to do for her. This person took pity on a girl that they've never met and has offered to help her get a job! No kidding! God is with her!
Candy Cane is sooo happy with the possibility of getting a job. The state wants her to accept disability and she is refusing! She WANTS to work.
Candy Cane is at the mercy of everyone else, the state, the Church, and people that she meets. She doesn't have a dime nor a thing in this world.
Meeting her and the others that we visit in Chicago sure does help put perspective on things. Even when you think that you have so little, you really have so MUCH!
I am sure thankful that my God has put her in our path. I am so thankful that He has given us ways to help others.
A lot of people don't feel good about themselves. They have so much self pitty. I know; I've been there. Helping others is part of the cure.
I've seen people come out of deep depression. One thing that helped them is reaching out to the homeless and needy.
Try it, you'll like it!

I am writing to ask for help, AGAIN! I am still collecting items for Candy Cane. I am including an updated list of needs.
If you have given, I thank you. I'm sure she will be soooo happy to receive the items. I will be taking items to her very soon as I got her address just today.
If you aren't actively helping others, won't you please, prayerfully consider helping Candy Cane. She is a fellow believer (a new believer) and needs help. There is only so much that the government can do and it is our job as believers to be there for each other.
I know you all have things that you don't need or know people who do!! (wink wink) It wouldn't be a terrible thing to ask others for their help also!
She has nothing. She is sitting on laundry baskets and sleeping on the floor (not for long). I will find out more when I visit her.
