Our Prayer Answering God Yesterday, it became obvious that our home sewing business needed a secondary industrial, straight-stitch, walking foot sewing machine (similar to JUKI LU-1508N). I had been struggling with this for about a year, but really didn’t want to shell out the money for it. However, with the increase in volume of work that specifically needs an industrial machine, I could not keep up by myself. Neither could I take time away from the one industrial to let one of our girls practice to get good at it to be able to help and then sew at the same time. Hence the needRead More →

He That Goeth Forth and Weepeth… I have read Psalm 126 yearly for the last 15 years, but it was only this morning that I realized that the order of events are actually reversed. Psalms 126:1-6 A Song of degrees. When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. 2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, 3 The LORD hath done great things for them. The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad. 4 Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streamsRead More →

Discouragement: Satan’s Most Valuable Tool One of the hardest things in life to admit is “I have failed”, or “I will fail”, but it is essential if we are to be victorious! Just like the sinner cannot be saved if he/she does not admit their sin merits punishment in hell, the first step to victory as a Christian is admitting our failures, or rather, that we can fail. The “Sinless Life” (Lordship Salvation), the “Prosperity Gospel” and all the false doctrines that go with them are lies straight from the pit of hell. The Bible tells the Christian: If we say that we have noRead More →

Tools For Sale  It was advertised that the devil was going to put his tools up for sale. On the date of the sale, the tools were placed for public inspection; each tool being marked with its sale price. They were a treacherous lot of implements…..Hatred, Envy, Jealousy, Deceit, Lying, Pride, and so on. Laid apart from the rest was a harmless looking tool, well worn and priced very high. “What is the name of this tool?” asked one of the purchasers, pointing to it. “That is Discouragement”, replied the devil. “Why have you priced it so high?” “Because it is more useful to meRead More →

Being a Friend This is based on what the Lord gave me in my personal devotion time on April 11th, 2007. If you are not familiar with this story, please read II Samuel 13-14 before proceeding. What kind of friend do I want to be? Let’s look at some examples in the Word of God: 1. The Wrong Kind of Friend: The story of Amnon, Absalom, their sister Tamar, Jonadab, and King David is a very sad one. Jonadab is not the kind of friend that will help anyone draw closer to the Lord. A. Let’s look at what Jonadab did: 1. He saw Amnon,Read More →

Count the Cost  To those who put off God’s gift of salvation, His own precious Son for their soul’s redemption – Though despised, rejected, and hung on the cross, God’s cry of love still reaches out: “Count the Cost!” To those who have refused Christ’s sacrifice of love, Who have wandered through life without any thought of hereafter, Like the Rich Man in hell, with all hope gone from above, How you’ll wish you had taken the time to “Count the Cost!” To the Christian whose focus is on wordly pleasures, Who lays aside His Lord’s command to seek the lost, Who has no concernRead More →
