Evictions Cause of Homelessness in Spain; Don’t be Anxious-Seek God

 John and Pat share about a troubling reality in Spain where evictions are leading to a homeless crisis.  John shares an account from the New York Times where a family was evicted from their apartment after falling behind in the mortgage.  They were now sleeping in the hallway of their building while there daughters slept in a neighbors van.  They continue to share how allegedly Spain has virtually no emergency system for families.  John and Pat encourage us to take note of not only what is happening in Spain but also what is happening to people in the United States and begin to empathize and move in compassion.  This is a perfect time for the church, God’s people, to build community and get to know their neighbors, so they can be there for each other.  John also offers encouragement for those in Spain and anywhere else where people are struggling or facing difficult situations in their lives.   Philippians 4:6-7 tells us
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”  They share that no matter what we are facing today we can either fear the outcome, which by fearing we can do nothing, or we can turn to God, to the One, who could do something about our situation through prayer.  When we turn to God and make our request known to him He will grant us peace beyond our ability to understand.
