We are Moving

Good morning, Colorado Springs and anywhere else, my “voice” is heard!

cropped-oim-logo.jpg is moving! We’ve been blessed with a new office and a new opportunity to continue the work that we’ve started. It’s always been unpopular to be godly. The longer I live, the more I observe, the more I recognize how blatant it’s become. Landlords are raising the rent, forcing people who can’t afford much, in this case, nonprofits, to be forced to relocate. Such is this situation. But as Scripture says, “What man means for evil, God uses for good”. Thank you, Lord, for your unspeakable gifts!

Below is a map, courtesy of Google, between the “old” site and the “new” site. We will have completely moved in, God willing, by October 1st.

This is what the office looks like right now ( a great deal cleaner as these pictures were taken pre-clean)…

Who’s your Neighbor?

The New Testament instructs us to “Love thy neighbor as thyself” but who IS your neighbor? Is it the circle you call friends? Is it people of the same economic group as you belong to? Or, could it be that it’s the homeless guy you passed this morning on your way to church, or to the movies or to…wherever else you had to go? For me, it’s anyone who passes by, regardless of how they’re dressed, how they’re acting or speaking or what they’re doing. Maybe they’re not the BEST neighbor we’ve ever had, but that doesn’t change the fact that they ARE our neighbor.

Let me tell you about MY neighbors. They are poor. They are homeless. They have nowhere to go at night. They want jobs but none seem to exist and if they DO, they go to everyone BUT those seeking them, They have either a past – or a present – problem with drugs, alcohol, etc. They may not have worked for years. They’re trying to climb a hill and a mudslide of political and peer pressure, discrimination and generalized animosity is coming right at them and they’re expected to climb and not drown; to withstand the  pressure put on them, raise a family, etc., with pretty much NO support from those who are called to do so.

I was just sitting here, listening to Ray Boltz singing “What if I Gave All” and as always, this songs brings tears to my eyes and a sob to my heart.

Please take a couple minutes and really listen to this song…It’s been the cry of my heart, as moderator of this page to be able to help those who are in need. It’s so discomforting for me to realize how big and pure my heart is, in spite of my humanity and fight against sin, and just as great a need as the kids portrayed on this video. And the killing part? I’m not trying to reach Africa– I’d settle for my backyard- Colorado Springs, Colorado – and the  people who come here to OIM to be blessed with food and clothes and whatever else we can give them.

The truth is that I’m tired. I’m tired of watching my pastor  hold her head up and practice her faith and know that she must, when no one is looking, cry out to God and ask him why people will spend hundreds of dollars for Denver Bronco‘s tickets but when it comes to money in the offering plate, there’s not enough to pay a tiny staff to work. I’m one of those prospective employees and I can’t even cover my rent since the government cracked down on TANF and food stamps so I do my best to hold my head up and do the best I can and wonder if I won’t be forced to take my family back to the shelter where we will once more be separated. My boss keeps telling me to trust God and believe and I know in my heart and spirit she’s right but if people don’t step forward to help, we’re screwed- and it’s not right. It’s not right that some people have more than they’ll ever need and others don’t have anything. Psalms 73 speaks of this so clearly but still I am human and love my family above all and lived through the damage it did to my son being separated from his father for 6 months. He’s only 4 years old and we desperately need help; both me and my family and this organization I’ve served faithfully the past 6 months.

I’m discouraged and tired of running my mouth about this. I’m tired of using increasingly obvious guilt tactics but what else can I do? I can’t force people who claim to be Christians to come forward. I can’t force people to read or buy my book.VFWTS I live in a constant state of fear, whether I like it or not. broken heart

See, this isn’t a popularity contest. If it were, I’d lose by default, primarily because so few know I’m even alive, despite  my many social outlets. It’s not a lack of trying: it’s a lack of RESULTS

Lord, please open the door.  Let me know that there are still a FEW who don’t “bow the knee to Ba’al“. The lines of demarcation are no longer clear as they used to be…I pray that we find a way to find each other and join forces to make a difference.  You are my neighbor and I am yours. ❤

Video Pictures of OIM

I have several videos on YouTube that correlate to the ministry I am privileged to serve at. I figured, rather than  have people running after ME, why not bring it to a central location? That having been said, I will be adding to this post as I create more videos…enjoy! I LOVE working here!
