is there a group i can join for sex offender crimes
I haven't found one yet
Lisa created one
Hello all! I am been a convicted felon for 11 years now and will say that it is quite discouraging to hunt a job when you are a convicted felon, but I wanted to say to hold on to the Lord. Although I have always believed in God, I never really had a relationship with him. On Easter Sunday, I started to attend a wonderful church and am now starting to understand how I can have a relationship with God. I was blessed with a job last August and unfortunately was released from my duties on July 15, 2013. It was a devastating blow to the financial end of my family. My husband has been very supportive and done his best to maintain since then. Lately I have been focusing less on the bad of not having a job and more on learning about God and his plan for me. I am still not sure where he wants me to be, but I do believe that God makes no mistakes about things that happen in our lives and know that when the time is right he will put me where I belong. I have been thinking of doing some volunteer work to help pass the time and help someone that may need a helping hand. Just a thought of something constructive to do while you wait to find your place in this world. Good luck and God Bless all of you!
I'm so frustrated.....I need a job and nobody's hiring me....I have two kids to help support! I'm willing to work as a cashier at this point.
I ask my "GOD"to lead me and guide daily upon awakening and although life has been very hard for me(considering why I went to prison this last time) I remain hopeful & thankful.I am REDEMPTION SEEKER, it's going to be painful,it's going to be a long road,but "REDEMPTION"is coming.Don't hide your faces and don't give in to rejection,but most importantly,"DON'T GIVE UP ON YOURSELF!!!!!
Well y'all it's been two rough weeks! But I've learned that means it's blessing time! I hope things are getting better for the members of this group. If not, honey child hold on your blessing is coming! I received a Word from God from Apostle/Prophet Jerry: he said that my ministry will be fruitful and I know it was from God because only a few people know I'm a ordained, licensed minister, and I didn't tell the prophet or anyone else at that church that day or my home church for that matter.
I'm praying for a friend, and I ask that you all join me please. This person is like us, but hasn't had that moment when they really need God. When I told them my secret, they called me crazy and cursed me. Anyway, this is a lesson to all; don't take God for a joke, and don't play Jesus for a fool. I'm witnessing first hand what Jesus went through (as well as you too) with the message He had to deliver and it takes some balls to handle it.
Now I understand why I went through what I went through and even though you may not be called to preach it doesn't hurt to share your story with someone else. This life is hard, and when the world and people are against you, the pain is unbearable. Keep ya head fam, and KNOW GOD GOT YOU WHEN PEOPLE AND DA WORLD HATE YOU STAY BLESSED & HIGHLY FAVORED!!
for personal prayer request inbox me for my email or phone #! just return the favor for someone else!
Anyone in needof prayer? List your prayer request and Jesus said when 2 or 3 agree in His name, Our Father will hear from heaven and grant your request. So speak it, believe it, and don't doubt or have fear, confess your sins and watch God work! Have a blessed week!
Things are a lot better today than it was last week. Since I've thrown my fit, things have improved to a certain degree. Now my parents aren't feeling well and I asked God to forgive me for the things I said and for them to come to Christ. I want them to feel better and get well so they can witness me getting on my feet and for me to buy them somethings they deserve for putting up with my hardheaded ass. I want to better myself for my kids and for them and for those who've been told they can't or won't make it in this world. No matter how bad it looks remember Philipians 4:13 "I can do ALL THINGS THRU CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME!"
You're getting the ball rolling! That's the first step! I will post it to my twitter and I also would like for yall to check out my nonprofit called the Humble Hearts Project on facebook! I'm also seeking donations and it doesn't have to be money but we will gladly accept that too lol! We need literature, computers, clothing, food, toiletries, notebook paper, notebooks, children's books, shoes, words of encouragement, Bibles, toys anything you have to give! We focus on the basic needs that people lack because of circumstances they can't control; like us.
We focus on peoples health: mind body and soul, the most important components of life! Felons are not bad people! The poor are not bad people! The lower class are not bad people! We just happened to be looked down on, looked passed, pushed over and let down by those who are suppose to reach out and lift us up! Luckily for us we have God! He cares, and He won't let us carry more than we can bear! We have to stand together and help one another if we are going to make it.
We all have insight to help someone else and our misfortune is someone else lesson and we should be ready to teach.
We matter, you know why? Because God saw the strength in us to keep going and our situation is a testament to what God can do and Will do! We got strength mentally because we've been fortunate enough to see the error in our ways and strive to better ourselves. We have that Grace and Mercy people pay preachers for! We have that endurance that the average person can't see. We have that humbleness that most can't fake. In other words we got it all! We're that hidden treasure! We're the strength that the world doesn't have because they wrote us off as failures. Jesus said the least will be greatest and the least the greatest! It's our time to show these shirts and ties and educated fools who it's suppose to be done!
Sign the petitions! Get congress attention and let them know we aint no write offs we write, right, and rite! Our past is what it is and we have seen the error of our ways and if you (congress) don't give us back our rights GOD WILL! He aint playing and the Word you can't take away! Read Matthew 23, 24, 25, 26 & 27 it's already written!
The next time someone decides to floss their degrees refer them to 1 Corinthians 1:18-28; God can't stand a know-it-all!
Be blessed fam!
well so far i see 8 signatures, lets just all go for the link that has the mose, mine have been archived wh.gov/…
Petition for the Right To Work!! We need everyone to take a minute to sign the petition to try to abolish felony discrimination in employment and housing. This may be a chance for us to get things moving in our favor but if we don’t try we won’t know.... If we don’t take this serious no one else will. wh.gov/…
I am seeing quite a few of these petitions being circulated, good idea however too many being posted could result in everyone signing different petitions and names not accumilating toward the goal. Sign them all
here is a new link to the petition... petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/enforce-laws-those-seeking-employment-based-skills-and-experience-rather-then-criminal-histories-and/…
been doing lots of research on what jobs/careers are going to be in demand and maybe even green jobs that are okay with those that have felony backgrounds, those that fall inline with the "new economy" I am taking steps on going to community college to further my education in welding, considering the "tech school" i attended was shut down due to inadequete education and false reporting practices. Oh and btw, those of you that do plan on attending school to better yourselves and make yourself more marketable... dont do the "fast track" fly by night schools...stick with community or accredited colleges...please do research..i got burned and spent two years and lots of grief from the FOC and now facing another felony charge because of my time out of work due to substandard education.
