Prayer and Testimonies
I’ve often thought this thought, “if only I had more money, things would be much better.” What I did not consider, was the fact is, when I received more money, I received more or higher bills. I quickly learned that if we are trusting in money that is loving money. We need to trust the Lord always in all things.
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Ye that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord: he is their help and their shield.
It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.
Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.
They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him: (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)"
I thought it proper to include more verses on trusting God.
Love you guys talk to you again real soon, Bill & Shirley
Like the Ronco commercials of days gone by I have learned to set it and forget it when I pray for any situation. I can remember when my children were growing up they would come to me with a request, when I would say “Yes, I will do that.” I meant it. If I said I would think about it, that is what I would do.
Most of the time if, in my opinion, It was not going to harm them, my plan was to do whatever their request was if it was in my power. But here is the “Kicker” if they would keep bothering me about the Issue, I would deliberately put off doing or giving them their request.
Mathew 6:7, 8 says this.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of before ye ask him.
Those verses are followed by the “Our Father”
I believe we must pray our requests, believe the answer is enroute, and it is the perfect solution to our needs. “Set it and Forget it.”
I have been trying to work this blog site for my wife for about 4 months now I think it will be easy after I learn how to do it.
Yesterday my darling husband decided to reorganize our pantry. I was infuriated, not because he did it, but because he did it without me. Well to say the least he, as usual, did a fabulous job. He did include me when he needed advice on the cans. We ran out of money, our budget was $100.00 we spent a little over. And added a lot of new features. Look at this, I am a little upset because he didn’t take before pictures. He is planning on painting the cabinet doors I removed 2 or 3 years ago.

Hey guys I believe this could be classified as a small Christmas miracle. It all started last week when my oldest daughter informed me that she had three tickets for the Christmas Train sponsored by Church on the Move.
Well she invited me, the next thing we knew we needed another ticket, we came up with 4. So now my wife could go, well not yet, we were now short one ticket again as my 20 year old granddaughter required a ticket. Simple fix I would stay behind, and let my wife go in my stead. Now it’s Sunday evening and we all head off to the Train. My daughter called me and informed that her 20 year old decided she wanted to go, so they offered her the stepdads ticket. I wouldn’t stand for that so I gave up Grandma’s ticket. Now we were two short and for a second decided to turn around and go home. Grandma was pretty upset about all that, so I said we are going anyway and that we would get at least a ticket for her. To shut her up I said Pray in the spirit and we did, with an occasional complaint or two from Grandma. I would like to say we didn’t fuss but that would be a lie because we did.
Meanwhile my middle daughters husband knowing we needed tickets was at the gates waiting for us when a guy out of the blue said does any one need 2 tickets I have 2 tickets. Lee said I do how much do you want, the guy handed him the tickets and say there are yours merry Christmas, they are yours.
