Alimentando Sheep (Pt. 1)

Shirley Nickle

Our nation prospered when our leaders were men of God and our pastors preached the infallible Word of God.

In just the years I have been saved I have seen a drastic change in the teaching of God’s Word. There is no value placed on God’s Word and there is no reverential fear of God. His Holy Word is compromised and some churches are building on sinking sand.

They try all their own ideas of what they think will work. Some churches bring in entertainment to attract crowds. Anything we put before God is an idol. Continue lendo

True Freedom

Sharon Couchman

This week we are celebrating the founding of our country, remembering our freedom as Americans and honoring our veterans who sacrificed to maintain our liberty. We are truly blessed in America and certainly we should celebrate. Mas, there is a greater freedom which is available to anyone regardless of where they live. It is the everlasting freedom that every human being can experience if they are willing.

This wonderful freedom makes all the difference in how you live your life, your perception of circumstances and your whole future. What type of freedom is this? Where does it come from? How can you get it?

It is the freedom that is found only in knowing Jesus as your Savior. This freedom has already been attained for us by Jesus, mas, whether we obtain it or not is our choice. Jesus spoke a lot about freedom when He was here on Earth. The very One who walked amongst us is the source of true freedom. He freed us from sin, sickness and death. You can be free from torment and free to be your true self. Continue lendo

On PurposeGod Chose You!

Clete Snellenberger

For years I have been a student of God’s Word and have gained so much strength from it. I have known and memorized Ephesians 1:3 which says that we are blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.

One day the Holy Spirit brought to my attention Ephesians 1:4. It states “According as he hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world. That we should be holy and without blame before him in love.”

I know that God has a plan and purpose for each person in this life. Everyone is given a free will to receive God’s design for their life. If someone chooses God’s plan it makes all the difference as to the outcome. The word “chosen” means to personally choose. It is used to denote soldiers who were chosen out of the entire military to go on a special mission to do a special task. Continue lendo

You Have it in You!

It’s been nine months since my husband, Bill, and I heard that still small voice “You are moving. If you do not go, your children will not come.”

“Go where?” I asked the Lord God!

He didn’t let us know for about six weeks where we were going, but just told us to get ready to go. Then one day while watching the Jim Bakker Show, I knew where God was sending us. “You are going to Morningside Ministry in Blue Eye, Missouri.”

Where?” Continue lendo

Branch Out!

Sharon Couchman

Recently I hired a new landscaping person to get my yard in shape. Uau! What a mess this past winter made. Debris everywhere, broken twigs scattered all over the lawn, branches hanging too low, piles of leaves and a half-dead tree. Thousands of annoying sweet gum balls everywhere just waiting to trip someone. And what about that fast-growing tree which to my amazement is now touching my neighbor’s roof?

E, Ó, I can’t forget to tell you about all the broken asphalt on my driveway. Daily it seems like new chunks are breaking away from the main part of the driveway. It looks like a bulldozer came in and tore up the driveway. Every night I have to be careful as I get out of the car not to trip on a newly broken section of asphalt. Whew! I keep raking up piles of asphalt but not sure where to dump them since they are an environmental hazard. Continue lendo
