Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior. Habakkuk 3:17-18 NIV
When I moved to Juneau Alaska with 500 dollars and a suitcase. I learned a valuable lesson to never move to a State Capitol City with just 500 dollars and a suitcase. A few nights in a hotel, I ended up broke, homeless, and staying at the Glory Hole.
No joke: that was the name of the homeless shelter in Juneau Alaska. I used to judge homeless people as just druggies and alcoholics. One day, I ended up there. They say most people are two paychecks away from being homeless. Still not sure who “they” are, but they said it. 😀
At the lowest part of my life, God was teaching me a lesson. As I lived with the other homeless people, God taught me something. We were all human. Not all homeless people are druggies or alcoholic.
I started working at the homeless shelter and within 3 months, I found an apartment and it all worked out. Sometimes God will put us through situations and struggles to show and teach us something.
When we struggle or go through hard times, it is important to know Jesus is there. God never gives us anything that we can’t handle. We shall rejoice. Praise be to God!
