Sad... Please Pray...

There is something I feel I want to discuss, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It's not regarding me.

However, it is regarding some people who live in the city I live in... Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

Here is a link to the artradio.ca article I read that is entitled, WINDSOR'S HOMELESS TAKE TO LIVING IN VEHICLEShttps://www.iheartradio.ca/am800/news/windsor-s-homeless-take-to-living-in-vehicles-1.10054062?fbclid=IwAR0N3XbX9xXQDeyVmB7K6D2P10QWiUNyslrDT_OtnBrqCj-UxIRtrzheolM.

Did you click on that link, and read that article?  Well, if you weren't able to, then please read what the article stated, that I'm sharing with you (I copied.pasted):

Windsor's homeless are finding different ways of getting off the streets — by living in their cars.

Given the skyrocketing rental rates and lack of affordable housing, some people are living in their cars and parking in different areas of the city.

There is a wait list of more than 5,000 people for affordable housing in Windsor and a count in June 2018 on the number of people living on the streets on any given day, found 197 people were homeless.

"I've been living in my vehicle for the last three years to be honest with ya and I wish there was more affordable housing," said this man who called AM800's the Morning Drive.

Although he has a job, he says it isn't enough to find a place.

"When the government raised the minimum wage to $14/hour, that was all fine and dandy but the price of everything else went up and it gets to a point you can't afford it," he says.

He says he usually goes to the Walmart parking lot because 'they don't bug anybody' and uses the showers at the YMCA. 

Any money he earns goes to his car, gas and a cell phone.

"I have a job to get me by but that doesn't still help," he says. "I would love to get a place, I don't have enough to get a place."

In the winter, he says he uses warm blankets to keep me warm along with three sleeping bags.

Although he says he has reached out for help,  he can't seem to find the 'right help.'

Wow!

Isn't this terrible?

I believe it is.

To me, it's truly sad.

But, I believe that many people will wonder what they shall do.

Thinking of that made me think of Luke 3:10, "And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?".

Amen!  And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?

What shall we do?

If you read God's Word, the Bible, then you'll have an idea.

What do I think?

I believe that we all need to trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.  If we do, then we gain salvation, everlasting life, and we'll belong to Him!

When we belong to Him and love Him, then He will love us and provide for us... always.

Hopefully, you'll join me in prayer... for everyone who needs help.

Thank you for praying!

If you do, I believe God will bless you.

Thank you, Lord!


Until next time...
