Homeless men, women, and children have the same interests, disappointments, pains, hurts, and feelings that we do.
They endure their struggles without a place they can call home. In most cases, they live in a place unfit for human habitation. For a few, it is in a car. For many, it is in a tent. For some, it is in an abandoned building.
They live outside without heat or air conditioning, dealing with bugs and having to find a bathroom.
Those who are homeless cry get depressed, sick, and hungry. They experience toothaches and get wet when it rains. Their feet also hurt just like ours. Additionally, they often have nowhere to turn to for help.
These individuals often share with one another generously. This usually includes clothing, tents, water, hygiene items, and food. They often share the hope that things will get better.
Some of them share cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, and pain pills. However, most do not have addictions honestly. If we do have addictions, it is because we have money.
Too many homeless people have mental health issues. These include bipolar disorder, ADD, autism, schizophrenia, severe sexual abuse trauma, parental rejection trauma, and low self-worth.
The founder of Campus of Hope in Conroe, Texas has been helping individuals who are homeless for more than 50 years. He observed that faith and trusting in Jesus Christ as your Savior brings about a most genuine change in behavior. After all, the Bible is full of solutions for life's problems.
