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.
petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/keep-businesses-discriminating-against-those-seeking-employment-criminal-histories-and-child-support/… You will have to create a username and password to sign the petition. let me know if there are any issues.
Sometimes I want to feel sorry for myself as well as others in my shoes. Sometimes I wanna curse the world because I'm in these shoes! I can't keep feeling sorry and I can't curse the world. I guess I like many, didn't realize or understand why the bad things happen to good people. By God's grace and mercy I've learned to be grateful. If it wasn't for all the bad that has happened, I wouldn't have anything to be thankful for or know what good times are.
i am trying so hard right now, my biggest problem is child support, thought there was at least some program here in Mich that help ex offenders out with work to pay child support..otherwise if i dont pay i get another felony charge...been trying the temp agency advance employment, but they told me to make a list of everything in my record after i told them i cant remember everything in my past record. i was told that if i dont revel all then i will be falsifying my record...i said to him, if im telling you i have a record but dont remember everything that i have in my past...how am i falsifying? prettysure they are just making excuses.
Don't allow a past mistake to dictate your future and you as a person! Romans 3:23 says we all fall short of the glory of God for we all have sinned! Good news: were forgiven. Sure we still have that "F" on our record but it's God's record book that matters! There are plenty of criminals in suits and ties that haven't got caught yet. But, their time is coming too!
The next time you feel down and out, remember these Scriptures; Galatians 2:20-21: I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me! The life I now live in the body , I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!
Remember fam, we belong to God not people. We have a true friend in Jesus. We are not bound by the law because Christ lives within us. We have been made right with God by Jesus, because we are the inheritors of heaven because we have been banished by mans laws and standards. Jesus is the advocate for the outcast, the nobody, the sick, the broken hearts, the felons and the drunk.
Having a Felony tagged to your name will make you a believer of a Higher Power! It is unfair, its hard to find a job, housing, and funding if you're trying to create a better future for yourself! What hurts the most is if you have a parent(s) that were there for the bail and the lawyer fees and now that you're trying so hard to do better, the doubt that you see when you look in their faces is worse than a bullet to the chest.
Jesus said "I will never leave you or forsake you", "give Me your burdens and I will give you rest" Matthew 6.
My favorite book The Beatitudes (Teachings of Jesus) Matthew 5 Message version. It says that when you've lost everything you are the owner of the most prize possession (your soul), when all have come against you, you're blessed because then you have to rely on God. When people discredit you for My sake (Jesus) don't be mad be happy! You're building your reward in heaven.
I hope this gives someone the peace they need. I know its hard! I've been going through it for 10 years! Even though the road has been rough and everything and everyone has worked against me I learned a lot more than what any university could have taught me. The School of Hard Knocks granted me a PhD in life that no man can ever take from me!
Where my fellow grads at? Represent!!!
