He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

Wake Up Wednesday- The Line:Poverty In America-It's Not What You Think

"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.' - Matthew 25:40

Every 4 years my stomach begins to have this ever increasing knot that doesn't seem to go away. Politics are a mess, and with this years up coming election, the knots have begun. Here's to more empty promises, deception and lies all brought to us by your favorite political party. My prayer is just that we don't forget about the least of these. The following documentary will shed some light on poverty in America- watch, tune in, and may the LORD use it to help you to WAKE UP!!

Spread the word!

"The Line- Written and directed by Emmy Award-winning producer Linda Midgett, it chronicles the very real stories of four real people struggling with real poverty in America today.

You’ll meet a banker in the suburban Midwest who used to earn six-figures a year and now, after the economic collapse, must go to a food bank to feed his three kids; a fisherman on the Gulf Coast of Louisiana who has watched his livelihood and his culture wash away in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and a devastating off-shore oil spill; a blue collar guy in North Carolina who worked hard his whole life but lost his job, became homeless, and started over as a restaurant bus boy; and a single mom in Chicago who battles daily to ensure that her son is safe, healthy, and has the opportunity to go to college.

The idea of the film is simple: People living in and struggling with poverty telling their own stories. They are beautiful, inspiring, challenging, and full of grace."

The Line premieres at 8 p.m. (EST) Oct. 2 — the night before the first presidential debate. You can watch it here.
