Listen, my dear brothers: it was those who were poor according to the world that God chose, to be rich in faith and to be the heirs to the Kingdom which He promised to those who love Him. James 2:5

Listen, my dear brothers: it was those who were poor according to the world that God chose, to be rich in faith and to be the heirs to the Kingdom which He promised to those who love Him. James 2:5


James 2:1-9, Psalm 34 & Mark 8:27-33


I have to admit I was pretty scared when it came to visiting the homeless, poor and hungry as I began my surrender to a life in Christ. There used to be a point in my life that I would look down on people who were failures in the eyes of the society. I used to ask myself, “Why do these people choose to live alone amongst the elements instead of fulfilling the dream most Americans have?” God instilled in me the courage to fulfill His Commands by daily practice, prayer and preaching to embrace the lost as His child of destiny.


I remember distinctly the first time I hugged a homeless man and he whispered in my ear, “this is the first time anyone has held me in years,” that I knew God was talking to me as tears of Christ joy ran down my cheeks. Mother Theresa heard the poor man say, “I am thirsty,” and she equated this to God telling her to do more for the poor and needy of the world. I personally lived a homeless life finding not despair in my heart but a purpose to live for His Glory. What you find in me writing to God in brevity is courage to do more for His Truth. Share your love of loving Christ Jesus. Amen.


I will praise Yahweh from my heart; let the humble hear and rejoice. Proclaim with me the greatness of Yahweh, let us acclaim His Name together. I seek Yahweh and He answers me, frees me from all my fears. Fix your gaze on Yahweh and your face will grow bright, you will never hang your head in shame.” Psalm 34:2-5


We pray by God, His Son and His Spirit to seek out the poor and share with them the Good News Your Son brought to the world.. We continue our Novena of prayers for Robert M. in NJ. We pray for “40 Days of Life” to close abortion clinics. We pray for the Emmaus Team in NJ. We pray for LIFE FM. We pray for our spouses, children, family, friends, and the unknown Christ-like people we pray with every day. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.


God Bless His Truth for America,

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed


His Promised House for those who love His decrees- James 2:1-9


There is no distinction in faith

All are afforded God’s Space

Jesus Christ is for all to taste

Not just the rich but poor to face


Two different types arrive at the door

One rich and one obviously poor

Do not make a distinction of the two

God is for each as He is for me and you


God gave His grace to the poor in spirit to see

The heirs to His Kingdom He named in thee

His Promised House for those who love His decrees

A faithful place for the poor to eternally conceive

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
