I interviewed an 11 year old male in a group home in 85041 yesterday and he left me a little bit stunned. When asking him to confirm his birthday that I had on his application, he said he didn’t know when his birthday was and basically that he didn’t care. I’ve never known a kid of that age not to know their birthday or even care about it. To me, that says there has been some serious life events that he has experienced. He is a quiet and introverted little guy. What was interesting about him is that he said he wants to be a “U.S. Hacker” when he gets older. He clarified my confusion by adding that he wants to hack other countries outside of the U.S.
He also says that he can not read or write (at all or not very good at all). He hasn’t been in school for about a year, is living in a group home with 7 other males, and he needs a mentor.
I want to clone myself about a hundred times, but I know there’s plenty of people in Phoenix & surrounding areas that should be able to spare AT LEAST 8 hours a month to make a difference in the life of a youth in foster care…right??
Arizonans for Children is in need of volunteers to be mentors for youths in foster care
Here’s one quick and easy way to increase your social media following…spread hate. We all know good news doesn’t circulate as well as bad. So, to increase your following, talk negatively about people on social media and in person, but be sure to film it so that you can post it on social media for the world to see. You don’t want to miss out on increasing your following, right? (Insert much sarcasm here)
So, go on spread hate and negativity online and watch your following increase. We all love a “good story” and will be sure to jump in and support your cause. Hatred breeds more hatred…just like a cancer. Attack one another today.
And we wonder why there is so much division and lack of unity??
Forget those words in the Bible about “love one another” and “love your neighbor as yourself”. Attack someone today on social media and watch your following increase. People will be attracted to your message like piranhas.
Here’s the easiest way to miss God’s voice…wait for Him to speak to you in a loud audible voice. Didn’t work for this guy either….
“He said, “Go outside, and stand on the mountain before ADONAI ”; and right then and there, ADONAI went past. A mighty blast of wind tore the mountains apart and broke the rocks in pieces before ADONAI, but ADONAI was not in the wind. After the wind came an earthquake, but ADONAI was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake, fire broke out; but ADONAI was not in the fire. And after the fire came a quiet, subdued voice.”
M’lakhim Alef (1 Ki) 19:11-12 CJB
Do we overook the still voice while waiting for the loud and clear?
“But God doesn’t speak that way!”
Then what did He give us His Holy Spirit for?😂😂😂
OK, I got it Lord. Lesson learned.
Tonight’s 3 things :
2. Be still
3. Slow down
I think sometimes we think we have to generate the Holy Spirit’s presence, instead of just relaxing and enjoying His Presence. True worshipers worship Him in Spirit and in truth. Is there a way to just relax in His presence in worship without putting on a show/performance?
We are in the world but not of the world…but while being in the world its easy to accumulate some unwanted dirt…especially for a car in Arizona.
Some people see church as the place where they can go get “clean” after rolling around in the mud all week. Some see it as the rinse off after being in the world all week, living right, but surrounded by darkness, negativity, and dust.
It’s monsoon season…who wants to wash their car? 😂😂😂
From 5-18 years old, Chris was in 30 different foster homes. Imagine having to go to a new school every time you went to a new foster home. Aged out and became homeless. Now he is mentoring.
Arizonans for Children has over 100 foster youths right now who are waiting for a “difference maker” in their life. Someone who will spend 8 hours a month with them, 1 on 1, to support, encourage, and believe in them. Do you want to make a POSITIVE difference in the life of youth in foster care?
