After finishing and reading my post yesterday I wanted to clarify something:
My suffering is not as severe as I believe it to be. I know there are others who are suffering even more. I can’t even begin to say, however, how I wish I could really reach out to them. I know a lot of people who are suffering through bad and broken marriages, physical pain, and I have known people who have experienced alcoholism homelessness…one of them being a an older cousin of mine. We did everything we could for him, but in the end he sadly and unfortunately chose to take his own life.
As I said, there are a lot of people whom only God can help. Even the well intentioned Christian can only do so much. We can feed them, clothe them, we can heal them to some extent…but we are most often than not, only the beginning.
We can do somethings, but we can’t do it all…We can provide them with food, but someone else needs to provide shelter…
This is something that while one brave soul can start, another needs to carry on, until the lost, broken soul can survive on God alone.
What I say isn’t meant to discourage anyone, any Christian, but it is meant to encourage one to another to get together in unity and become a powerful force to do good.
This is what church is all about…the coming together of the saints.
