My Story- Part 1

   Jean Oathout: I am thankful for how the Lord has blessed me in my 82 years!

   My earliest vision of Christ was in Sunday School. I believe I was about 5, when He stood beside me, holding my hand. 

   He didn't say anything, but I knew Who He was, and never doubted His existence from then on.

#54 Juniper Tree Prayers

   Samuel Chadwick: Elijah was mighty in prayer. God answered all his prayers but one, and that was the prayer that he might die. He was under the juniper tree, suffering from mental and physical reaction.

   Yesterday had been a great day. He had stood alone as God's champion: strong, defiant, triumphant. The next day was the day after! At the treat of a woman he fled. (Google image, Elijah discouraged)

#53 The Prayer of Moses

   Samuel Chadwick: Moses prayed that he might be allowed to complete his work. He had undertaken it at God's command. For forty years he had nursed and led a murmuring and ungrateful people through the wilderness.

   The promised land was within sight. What more natural then that he should desire to see his life-work completed? Besides, to all human judgment he could not be spared.

To Be Like Jesus

Did you make the choice today,
To look into God’s Word,
And there beholding Jesus’ glory,
To become more like our Lord?

#52 The Problem with Unanswered Prayer

   Samuel Chadwick: It is many years since I first wrote on Unanswered Prayer. The problem became acute when the man for whom we were praying so earnestly and confidently died while we prayed.

   The shock of it was overwhelming. It had never occurred to us that he might die. We had claimed the promise. We were absolutely sure of the Word. I do not think my faith was ever so sorely tried.(Google image, We will pray again)

#51 I Believe in Divine healing

   Samuel Chadwick: I believe in the healing power of faith. Apart from religion there is, generally speaking, health for the man who lives by faith. Sickness is of the mind rather than of the flesh.

   Divine healing is more than healing by faith. It is not to be confused with hypnotism and autosuggestion. The Lord is the Healer. The faith is in Him. (Google image, Praying for someone)

Thanks. A Lot

Thanks. A Lot.Ron Hutchcraft: Our grandson wants to major in philosophy when he gets to college next fall. 

A few days ago, we got to sample what kind of philosophy we might expect from his one-of-a-kind brain. It's not exactly Socrates. But it's interesting. And within the reach of the common man. (Ron's photo)
