Message for people living in despair

Published 9:34 pm Thursday, June 11, 2015

Dear editor,

I have a message for the people of Selma for I am one of many who use to struggle from payday to payday or from month to month to receive my Social Security or retirement benefits.

I now say after giving my life to the Lord our God Jesus Christ living is much easier. So keep the faith, fight for your rights. Be persistent. Don’t give up, and always remember to put God first for he really does care for you and he will answer your prayers like he did mine.

There are people here in Selma both black and white and men of color who are homeless and they shouldn’t be. They all should have a house, a job and money. I always remembered something I read a few years ago and that was the art of having plenty of money is to make money plentiful, and the way you do it is to get a decent job. One where you don’t have to work two or three jobs to make ends meet that way you can spend more quality time with your family and friends.

Don’t settle for less. Life is full of delays and frustrations but thankfully, there is a God who cares for us.

For most of us are over looked and the appropriate services that are available to each of us often fail to address out needs.

So in closing, we as people, children on the true God, need to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and enough just to get by. Or should I say most of our young people are out future are still living for the weekend. They must believe in themselves with God’s help. He will give them the power to change for the better life.

So in closing I want to leave you with this most important message. Let us unite spiritually for the eye of the Lore is upon us.

Psalms 53:2 and 33:13-14.

For no truer words have ever been spoken.
