The Fifteenth Chapter: How One Should Feel and Speak on Every Desirable Thing

By TomTruex The Imitation of Christ by Thomas à KempisBOOK THREE: INTERNAL CONSOLATIONThe Fifteenth Chapter: How One Should Feel and Speak on Every Desirable Thing The Voice of Christ MY CHILD, this is the way you must speak on every occasion: “Lord, if it be pleasing to You, so be it. If it be to Your honor, Lord, be it done in Your name. Lord, if You see that it is expedient and profitable for me, then grant that I may use it to Your honor. But if You know that it will be harmful to me, and of no good benefit to the welfare of my soul, then take this desire away from me.” Not every desire is from the Holy Spirit, even though it may seem right and good. It is difficult to be certain whether it is a good spirit or a bad one that prompts one to this or that, and even to know whether you are being moved by your own spirit. Many who seemed at first to be led by a good spirit have been deceived in the end. Whatever the mind …read more Source: Imitate Christ     ...

Hialeah residents line up for hours to apply for Section 8 housing

A crowd of people were lined up outside a Hialeah library for hours Friday as they tried to sign up for Section 8 housing. Those who were running the operation said there was problem with their website, so they were unable to help people sign up. One woman told Local 10’s Liane Morejon she has been waiting to sign up since 5 a.m. and still has received no help. “They said the system was down, so they gave us these papers and told us to come to this address which is 501 East 4Ave,” said Rosemarie. “I get here and I was treated real bad.” People have been growing restless and some say there has even been some pushing and shoving. They also say at least two people had to be taken away by fire crews to be treated for dehydration. Organizers later brought out water and chairs to make everyone more comfortable and to keep everyone hydrated. They say all other sign up locations in Hialeah are experiencing the same computer issues at this time. …read more Source: WPLG Local News     ...
