America’s labor shortage is skyrocketing! But what’s interesting about this is the fact that this deficiency is being sorely realized in the blue collar positions. These are typically the hands on positions. They’re those jobs that are truly the spoke in the wheels that make EVERY organization go around and around. Blue Collar positions, while critically necessary, are also the ones less desired or applied for.
As I sat this morning the Lord said something to me that made a whole lot of sense! “NOW PEOPLE SEE HOW I FEEL!” All of a sudden He began saying:
This is nothing new, I’ve seen it before
I saw it as I walked the earth to and fro
As I taught, preached and healed all the people’s dis-eases
I looked around for some help cause there was sorely a need
With compassion, I looked in every nook and cranny
for someone to help out that poor ole’ granny
but every where I looked, many I never found
cause nobody wanted their hands to touch the ground
the dirt, the dust, the earth, the grime
nothing’s changed, just the TIME!
That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done,
And there is nothing new under the sun….Ecclesiastes 1:9..
“Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest…..Matthew 9:35-38…
There’s a road less traveled
That only a few do find,
It’s narrow just like a needle’s eye
Riches can’t be used to gain admission
The currency accepted is a confession
That Jesus died but He rose again
With all power and authority in His hands
This confession is more than words you impart
These words are felt deep within the heart
They’re attached and tethered to one’s belief
That leads to a walk eternally
Along God’s path of righteousness
Where Jesus leads us by Himself…
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…..Romans 10:9..
“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it…. Matthew 7:14
“And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God…. Matthew 19:24..
“He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake…Psalm 23:3..
