About me

My name is Jonathan Craft. I have what they call cerebral palsy. Which really means that they don’t know how much of my disease will progress and there really is not that much out there on how to treat an adult with my handicap. So already I have over proceeded my life expectancy. And I have come to realize my days may be numbered. I have tried to make the best of my life. I think I know a lot about everything, but the truth is I just know a little bit about a bunch of stuff which sometimes can be a little dangerous. I have a college degree in organizational leadership and an associates degree in social work. I now have a problem getting a job because my handicap is so involved that I need some adaptations to even apply for a job. And I am having trouble with that, because the stuff( the technology) isn’t where I need it to be so that I could be successful at any job. So I am stuck in the waiting game. So that’s where this is what I consider my job until I can get a job. So any posts that you want me to research that relates to a handicap or to a current event in this world let me know and I will do it but the kicker is not everything is going to pass my approval. So I won’t research everything unless it passes my approval. So if your stuff doesn’t get pass my approval just change it a little bit and then try again. If you want me to research something contact me at and leave any suggestions or comments. Thank you for reading my blog.

Sin has made the basis of things wild and not rational, but I learned from experience if you trust in the Lord you should never have problems with the devil. All you have to do when you feel the devil is say, “Almighty Jesus protect me!” and the devil will go away. Your brother and friend in Christ Jon

Verse of the day

Verse of the Day for Thursday, June 22, 2017:

He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD. — Proverbs 18:22

Thoughts on Today’s Verse….

Several great truths are taught us in the opening chapters of the Bible. First, we are made in God’s image, both male and female. Second, we are made to be different (male and female). Third, we are made to bless each other and be complements of one another. Fourth, a husband and wife were made to leave their families of origin and build their lives together (Gen. 1:26-2:25). To find a spouse for life, one created by God in his image, is to find what is truly good and what God truly desires.

My Prayer…

Father, I thank you for your plan for my life. (for the married) I thank you for my spouse and ask for your help in blessing and fulfilling that person in every way. (for the widowed) I ask, dear Father, that you comfort my feelings of loss and grief, and that you know my thanks for this special person through whom you blessed my life. (for the single) I ask that you help me know the path for my life and use me to bless others in the way that I live with integrity and faithfulness. (for the divorced) I ask, dear Father, that you minister to my sense of loss and that you use me to serve you and bring you glory. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Helping other people

Helping other people is necessary almost vital in my opinion. If you want assistance you have to help other people when they’re in need. Maybe it’s your neighbor or a homeless person or perhaps even a stranger on the road. Many people don’t want to help, but if no one helps they maybe stuck. That’s not how many people were brought up. Many people are scared for their own well-being. God doesn’t want us to be strangers towards anyone because of that fact. We should not fear anything or anyone. As long as we are doing it for God. He will protect us. Our Lord isn’t going to let anything happen to us. In fact he Says ” If  you lose your life for one of mine you save yours.” So why should we be afraid to help other people especially  if you put it in perspective like I just did. But I know people are conscious of safety, but sometimes our safety has to be put aside for the greater good of other human beings. We just have to continue to trust in our Creator as we always should. Love Your Brother in Christ Jonathan.

Love your neighbor as youself

Memorial of Saint Aloysius Gonzaga, Religious
Lectionary: 367

Reading 12 COR 9:6-11

Brothers and sisters, consider this:
whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly,
and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
Each must do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion,
for God loves a cheerful giver.
Moreover, God is able to make every grace abundant for you,
so that in all things, always having all you need,
you may have an abundance for every good work.
As it is written:

He scatters abroad, he gives to the poor;
his righteousness endures forever.

The one who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food
will supply and multiply your seed
and increase the harvest of your righteousness.

You are being enriched in every way for all generosity,
which through us produces thanksgiving to God.

GospelMT 6:1-6, 16-18

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Take care not to perform righteous deeds
in order that people may see them;
otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father.
When you give alms, do not blow a trumpet before you,
as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets
to win the praise of others.
Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward.
But when you give alms,
do not let your left hand know what your right is doing,
so that your almsgiving may be secret.
And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.

“When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites,
who love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on street corners
so that others may see them.
Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward.
But when you pray, go to your inner room, close the door,
and pray to your Father in secret.
And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.

“When you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites.
They neglect their appearance,
so that they may appear to others to be fasting.
Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward.
But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face,
so that you may not appear to others to be fasting,
except to your Father who is hidden.
And your Father who sees what is hidden will repay you.”

Verse of the Day

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

So often today, we discount the wisdom of those who have come before us and who want to share with us the collective wisdom that was handed down to them by their predecessors. Let’s be especially attentive over the next few weeks of those who are older and have proven themselves faithful. At the same time, let’s remind our children and our grandchildren how important obedience is to God, especially the obedience of children to their parents.

My Prayer…

Dear heavenly Father, I ask your forgiveness for the times that I have not properly respected the word and wisdom of my parents. I thank you for their love for me and their desire to guide me in your path. Please bless them with your grace and bless me as I seek to be more obedient to your will. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

This is a great organization

http://www.cci.org/?referrer=https://www.google.com/

It’s a great organization. It’s mostly volunteers, they don’t income from the government they receive donations. It’s a big organization, but it’s run by what people give to them. What I am asking of you is very simple ponder over giving this  non profit organization money. No amount of money is too small to donate. Any donation is more than sufficient.
