Loving Your Neighbor

homeless%20Jesus
Hi my sweet sister Clare, you make me chuckle with Joy every time I hear the most endearing conversations you have with the Lord daily. I will continue to pray for the Lord give you even more strength to keep on going on this road.
Please send my regards and love to your soul mate Ezekiel my dear brother in Christ. Love this needed message this day. When I see how people ignore the homeless on the street because of their appearance it breaks my heart.  Their appearance does not matter to me or to the Lord. The Lord is concerned with our Hearts We need to reach out to all of God’s creation. The homeless need to be given a Word of Hope, a smile, some water, something to eat.  They too deserve respect and acceptance for they are hurting and need consolation, love and compassion.  They need something to hold on to and Jesus’ Love is the answer.  Sister Clare, I will share with you and my brothers and sisters here on your channel something poignant and amazing  that the Lord had me do a couple of weeks ago for it is exactly what your video today speaks about “To Have Uncommon Respect.”  First of all, God’s timing is amazing and He is never late and always on time. :)) Unbeknownst to me, little did I know that on that particular day as I was rushing to the Dollar Store to buy some Bibles, God had another assignment for me along the way and I was elated that He was able to use me, to share His most precious love and compassion for a hurting soul. Well, on this day, I was with my twin and she had accompanied me to the Dollar Store.  As I arrived there, the Lord immediately prompted me to see this broken down homeless man sitting on the sidewalk with His head down and he had no shoes on his feet. Before I entered the store, I scooted down to this stranger and said, Hello my friend, how are you doing, are you ok?  He was not startled at all to see this strange woman just approaching him out of the blue and my sister was standing by me.  Well, we began to talk and I told Him that Jesus sent me to see Him this day and that Jesus loved Him. Just to think about what happened that day with this man makes me start to cry again. I looked into His eyes, for I felt Jesus working through me as if Jesus was instructing me as to what to say and do.  Thank you Jesus… I asked Him why He was sitting alone on the sidewalk.  He began to cry and said that He had just been released from Jail and that he was thinking of His family. I told him, for his name was Miguel.. I said, Miguel, does your family know you are out of jail have you wanted to call them?  I am sure they want to hear from you? He began to cry again, I placed my hand upon His cheek and said “Do not worry is okay to cry, Jesus loves you so much and you are special to Him for you are His child.  I even asked Him if He wanted to use my cell phone to call right then and there and he replied and promised me he would call them that night. I told Miguel that nobody is perfect, everyone makes mistakes.  We just have to have hope for tomorrow and do the will of God.. Miguel was a Christian for I asked him if he was and He told me that he had accepted Jesus during his stay in Jail.  He was currently living in a homeless shelter until his family picks him up. I was so happy to hear he had already accepted Jesus into his heart. I asked him if he wanted me to get him a bible and he replied yes, and he wanted me to get him some soda so i went in to get him the soda, some water and some snacks. I went and gave him this plus some money the Lord led me to give him.. There were people watching me as I was speaking to this gentleman and even a lady I knew from a business next door to the Dollar Store, she went to her business for a minute and came out with a dollar to give to Miguel.   Of course there were people looking at me  and wondering who is this lady, crouched down speaking to a homeless man?  I kept doing what the Lord instructed me to do and did not care about the stares and hoped that they could one day find some compassion for someone that was hurting who just needed someone to listen and care for them even for a moment. I prayed with Miguel and told him to please call his family that night and He told me that he would.  I told him to wait for me that I had something else for him that I needed to get at the dollar store. He nodded and said ok.. I quickly went back in the Dollar Store prompted by the Holy Spirit to get Miguel a small duffle bag and some toiletries, white socks, more snacks. etc.. When I exited the store, Miguel my sweet brother was not there anymore. He had vanished from my sight and I was oh so sad.. I had my sister drive even to a Mc Donald’s nearby to see if He was there, but he was not.  We drove around and around and did not see him anywhere.  I remember, Miguel did not even have any shoes on his feet.  I was worried and even had my sister drive to the nearby bus stop, but Miguel was not there.   Till this day, I have Miguel’s duffle bag in the trunk of my car to give to him. I pray that the Lord will bring him to me again to give him the goodies God had for him.  I continue to pray for Miguel each night and wonder how he is doing. But I find consolation knowing that one day I will meet with him in Heaven. This story that I am sharing is not in no way to glorify myself or pat myself on the back. ALL GLORY AND PRAISE GOES TO THE OUR LORD!!!!!! I just wanted to share how AMAZING GOD IS and how He can use us to help those in need that feel down trodden and broken hearted.  I was so happy the Lord used me that day and that I was able to be a blessing to someone and spread God’s Joy and Love that is everlasting to everlasting and that GOD’S LOVE for all of His creation is so POWERFUL, PURE, LOVELY AND INFINITE AND HAS NO BARRIERS. Hope this story blesses your heart this day to encourage you to look around when you are out and about in your day,  for the Lord will prompt you when you least expect it to share His mighty LOVE!!!!
