My Hunger Story

We received this story from a Harvest House client. It is a brief look into what it is like to be hungry and homeless and is a very powerful one at that.

The trials and tribulations involved with being hungry, homeless and unemployed are at the core of what changes the essence of an individual.

It forces us to reevaluate our priorities, our day to day responsibilities as well.

After being homeless for nearly four years now, I believe I have truly learned the meaning of respect, compassion and the limitations of my own emotions demonstrated in day to day living.

These hard times have given me a rejuvenated spiritual awareness which inspires and motivates me continuously.

Proverbs 27:7 He who is full loathes honey, but to the hungry even what is bitter taste sweet.

-A veteran and Harvest House food recipient
