The Caring Place


One of the most important keys to living life to the fullest is having the ability to give back to those in need. It’s sad to say, but it seems like lately the people who have the least are the ones who are more inclined to share and give to others. People who have more want to keep getting more, sometimes even if it means taking it from someone else. Such sad times, but I am here to say there is hope. There are people and places that still have hearts for others. Today I’d like to highlight one of those places.


Junction City Caring Place (JCCP) is a non-profit organization established in 2004, located at 1013 B W 8th Street in Junction City, Kansas. The Caring Place is a faith-based central resource center in Junction City, Kansas and its surrounding areas with FREE food, clothing, counseling and basic medical care. When I learned about JCCP, I knew immediately that I needed to be connected. The fact that people only have to show their ID to receive the free services offered by the Junction City Caring Place is amazing because most other organizations that provide free services require government documentation verifying the need for assistance.


The Junction City Caring Place has been an inspirational and motivating factor because of the results and the impact it has made in the community from when they first opened the doors back in 2004 to its position in the community currently in 2014. This organization has given support to over thousands of family in Junction City and the surrounding communities. Being faith-based gives the community a different perspective of the love of God through his giving help to one another during the difficult times in life.

The Caring Place is also looking to start offering free computer classes; basic computer skills, resume building and internet skills to those who might be interested.


Hours of Operation for the JCCP is Monday and Wednesday 10:00am -2:00pm (Clothing Only) Tuesday 10:00am -1:00pm (Food Only) Saturday 10:00am -12:30pm (Medical by Appointment and Clothing)

Junction City Caring Place is always in need of volunteers, food and clothing donations. Monetary donations are also accepted and greatly appreciated.

I Need you to Trust me, so I can Trust you


When I was younger, two of the first Bible scriptures I remember learning and actually memorizing was Proverbs chapter 3 verses 5 and 6. ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.’ For some reason these scriptures just resonated in my heart as a child and they still do to this day. It reminds me that no matter what, I am to trust God at all times and most importantly stop trying to figure everything out. I have to be honest, me not trying to figure stuff out is a battle I deal with on a daily basis. I am bothered when I do not know something or when things do not go as I expect them to. Hence the reason we are to take comfort in the scriptures and lean not on our own understanding. At the end of the day, I have come to realize that some things I will never understand, but that must never affect my trust in God. Instead, I am learning to use one of the most powerful tools that God has given all of us. I am learning to pray more and more. The more you pray, the stronger you become. The less you depend on self and realize where your strength comes from, the easier it will be for you to trust Him completely.


While in my prayer/study time the other day God gave me a huge revelation that I want to share with you. He said, “I need you to trust me, so I can trust you”. That moment was life changing for me. God needs you and me to trust Him in every area of our life, stop trying to figure it out, lean not on your own understanding. In doing so, He will then be able to trust you. Are you still waiting on your financial break through? Are you still anticipating a promotion on your job? Are you still hoping for a new business? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I have one more for you. Can God trust you? Make a decision today.  Decide to fully and truly trust God with all areas of your life; finances, children, health, employment, family, school, etc…then yes He will be able to trust you because He knows that no matter what, you are not going to lean on your own understanding, instead you are going to acknowledge Him in everything so He can direct your paths.


The God that we serve is a BIG God. He’s a merciful God. He’s a gracious God. He’s a giving God. His love is perfect. He wants to see you succeed. He wants you to own your own business. He wants you to write a book. He wants you to graduate from college. He wants your body healed. Most of all, He wants you to trust Him so He can trust you.


Thought Check:

Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun. (Psalms 37: 3-6 NIV)

Exercise Your Faith


Often times we offer words of encouragement to someone when they are in a tough situation by telling them the importance of having faith and trusting God.  Yes, indeed we have to have faith when faced with obstacles in life but what about if we make faith our lifestyle.  Live life in such a way that you are required to get out of your comfort zone and actually make an effort to exercise your faith on a daily basis.  This is especially important when it comes to utilizing the gifts that God has placed on the inside of us.  There are a lot of gifts that God has given us, yet we are either not comfortable operating in those gifts or if we operate in those gifts we don’t do it for the glory of God.

How do you exercise your faith?  Well, the best example I can give you is to compare it to the same thing you do to exercise your physical body.  When you first start exercising, you start slow.  You don’t go and run ten miles, you start with maybe one and work your way up from there.  That is the same thing you can do with your faith.  Jesus said we are to have the faith of a mustard seed, and a mustard seed is extremely tiny, virtually impossible to see with the human eye.  The same way that running a marathon builds your physical strength, exercising your faith grows your spiritual strength.  Spiritual maturity will also come with spiritual strength and growth in your personal relationship with God.

See, to God, your life is a finished picture, beautifully painted on a canvas and He is watching parts of it unfold each and every day.  It’s your faith and ability to not just talk about it, but actually make it a lifestyle that is going to help paint a new part of that beautiful picture.  Remember, He is Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. You were created to be a central part of the Kingdom and to be used in a vast way.  Stop looking at your present situation as the end all, be all and exercise your faith.  Just do it.  You have a future that God is trying to get you to, but in order to get there you have to make it through where you are right now. So today, my challenge to you…Change your lifestyle, exercise your faith and see just how spiritually strong you will become.  #iDeclare #exerciseyourfaith



Father God, In the name of Jesus I come humbly first and foremost repenting for not having the faith that I should.  Please help me Lord to live a life of faith and trust in you.  I decree and declare on today that I will live a life that will require me to exercise my faith and trust in you on a daily basis.  Faith is my lifestyle and I will draw closer and closer to you each day.  I know that faith without works is dead, so Lord I ask now that in my journey please help me and show me what I am to do on my part.  Thank you God for hearing my prayer.  In Jesus name I pray, Amen.


James 2:17 NKJV Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”

Hebrews 11:1 NIV Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”
