When I go to LA I tend to walk amongst those who are impoverished. Those who are on hard times and without much income.
I guess if I really think about it. I’ve hung around that world or that life for much of my life. The life of the less fortunate. To be truly honest I’m part of that now.
I see the tired faces. The misfortunes and the wrong directions. I see the smiling faces, the joking around and the songs of praises. I see it all.
There’s some agencies here that we have to help. Some are over crowed and under funded. But most do what they can. And please don’t be ashamed of the need for help.
If your in need of shelter please look for homeless shelters and housing offices. You might end up on a list but it’s the start of hope. And we all need that. Also there’s jobs that provide housing. Rural farming jobs often give shelter. Trucking jobs often offer shelter, and look for nanny jobs or caretaker jobs. Some places offer shelter but research the families well.
There’s a program called Job Corps of America and they offer high school and trade programs. Often times they also have housing options.
There’s your local county offices. They might not have what you need but most will point you in the right direction. There they give you food options or medical options. Both are a help and blessing to those in need.
I often feel sorry for the need of those who just couldn’t provide it all. This world is filled with the need to have to. The things we need to maintain basic human needs seem excessive. But it is what it is. And we’re blessed just to have another day. I pray that we all simultaneously get the leg up that most of us need.
That together we will alright.
The day just begun to shine and once again things are on our sides. And love conquers all. But forgiveness sets us free.
