  1. Thank you both for your responses! Both of you referred to the book of Proverbs, which I also referred my friend to. Even though this gal is a bit younger in the Lord than I am, she has an amazing love for Him. She greatly desires to not only be in obedience to the Lord and His will, but also to glorify and please Him with her whole situation. It was such a blessing to literally watch the Spirit working in her heart. At the beginning of our conversation her voice was wavering and there were tears in her eyes from fresh hurt. She does not use a KJV, but watching the transformation in her demeaner from hearing verses and portions of verses from the KJV was awesome (Heb. 4:12). I could just see the weight of burden lifting from her and see peace enveloping her as her hope in the Lord was renewed yet again. You're right, Alan...about how powerful the tongue is. James 3:4 & 5 - "Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth. * Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!" Thank you for your thoughts and desire to give wise counsel. Dave...thank you for sharing about your own personal situation. It sounds like I have a similar response as your wife. I feel protective too when others are "attacked" without cause. I did the best I could to encourage my friend and to remind her how in His time, the Lord brings things around. When one's light (as in Matt. 5:16) shines before men then like is says in John 3:21...then "...His deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God". I surely agree that if we honour and serve the Lord the best we can, then the Lord will protect us and the truth will become obvious and will prevail.
  2. I was truly seeking scriptural counsel from a "multitude of counsellors," but I love how the Lord gives all utterance as THE Counsellor! A dear friend who is not only saved but obviously loves the Lord has been dealing with some very hurtful family issues. She has moved from the area but her siblings (doubtful that they are saved) have been openly gossipping and falsely accusing her to others locally. It is a grievous situation as we live in a very rural area. My friend was back doing some business and visiting for the day and a mutual friend informed her about the bad-mouthing that was continuing. With tears my friend sought counsel from me and the Lord truly helped me to give her an encouraging response. However, Proverbs speaks three times about a multitude of counsellors, and so I would be grateful for any scriptural counsel offered here still.
  3. When gossip and false accusations tarnish a testimony what does the Lord say is a wise response?
  4. I actually have the songbook "SONGS of John R. Rice". We aren't that far away and so if it would be helpful to you, I might be able to mail it to you.
  5. I have very mixed feelings when I get a new Bible. I absolutely love my Bibles and I have notes all over the place and verses underlined with emphasized markings. The Bible is so exciting and I love how it teaches me knowledge, and by the Spirit I glean understanding! I still have the little KJV New Testament that I was given as a very little girl, and then a KJV Bible with both testaments...and my name engraved into the leather-made cover. Just think! The Word is God-breathed! It's alive and powerful (Heb. 4:12). It is God speaking to US! I recently wrote a little piece that I entitled "Are We Paying Attention?" Are we paying attention when we open up our Bibles and read from them? Do we truly understand that God is talking to us? He's not just talking to the saints of old...but to you and to me...today! Wow! Anyway...I'm sorry that I go on sometimes, but His Word is just so marvelous and so sweet, so full of instruction and comfort and light! So...though I have mixed feelings when I get a new Bible it is still a joy because I know that what I've hidden in my heart is still there and there's all the more opportunity to learn and to grow more and more. What a treasure God's Word is to us!!
  6. "Bug" at a nearby state park. Anyone know what kind of "bug" it is?
  7. Alan...I'm so very thankful that you and your wife and those of your church are all ok. I've been praying for you all and will continue to pray for you. The aftermath with a quake that size and with its damage and loss of life can be great. My heart goes out to all of the precious people of that area, and especially to those that are not saved. Every time there is a "natural occurrence" such as this, I just pray that those that are saved will be able to grasp hold of each opportunity that arises to further share the Gospel. It does seem to me that the Lord allows these kinds of events because He is not willing that any should perish and thus over a widespread area people are warned to consider their own demise and their eternity to follow. As it says in Isaiah 55 God's ways and thoughts are so much higher than we could ever imagine, and beings that He is the creator of this wonderful earth and worthy of being feared, He is certainly over all of these things. Personally I can see the beauty of His love flooding the earth in each "disaster" that "Unto thee it was showed, that thou mightiest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him" [Deut. 4:35]. We have a small fault-line that runs along the north side of our little valley, and we have experienced a few good "shakings" ourselves. I'm so grateful that we have such an awesome God that we can trust with all things.
  8. This is what we call a "pine star". There's a lot of beauty out there!
  9. What joy! Three of our grandsons were saved today! The two oldest boys (15 and 17 yrs old) are both special needs boys, and that just goes to show how powerful God's love and His truths are and how they can pierce through and not be hindered by those special needs! The youngest is almost 12 yrs old and he was the first of the three to ask the Saviour to save him. "Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth" (Luke 15:7). What glorious answers to this grandma's countless prayers! I'm rejoicing with tears of praise, and ever grateful in prayer! Yes, praise God from Whom all blessings flow! I can't help but to add... What an unspeakably joyous thing it was to hear the oldest young man ask Jesus to save him! To be told that his countenance was one of peace and serenity surely wrought the instant longing to join the very angels in Heaven and burst out in joyful song! Glory to God in the highest for all three of my grandsons accepting the gift of salvation! Praise the Lord for my grandsons' momma who led them to Him...and their daddy for also teaching them and desiring that they be saved! In the quietness of your heart, if you will sweetly still yourself...you shall hear the RE-JOY-SING (JOY AGAIN and AGAIN!!!) in Heaven over these 3 precious young men!
  10. Were You There? Were you there over Two thousand years ago? Were you in His thoughts and did He know Of you when He conquered the evil foe?   O yes! I was there For His love encompassed me I was in His heart as His love for all Nailed Him to that old rugged tree.   Did you see His eyes piercing yours As He hung so painfully there? Did you count the countless sins He took upon Himself to bear?   O yes! I was there For His love encompassed me I was in His heart as His love for all Nailed Him to that old rugged tree.   Prostrate at the foot of the cross Did you go and humbly lay Seeking His forgiveness and His Covering, did you sincerely pray?   O yes! I was there For His love encompassed me I was in His heart as His love for all Nailed Him to that old rugged tree.   When that star so brightly shined The night He was born on earth, Were you in God's omniscient mind Recognizing His gift of priceless worth?   O yes! I was there For His love encompassed me. I heard His still small voice His Word pierced my heart to the core. To His call I humbly paid heed and Now I'm redeemed and blessedly His ...Filled with rejoicing forevermore.   - WWMS
