    The greatest among you shall be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. Matt 23:11 ESVWhen I showed up at a church work day event, the job that got assigned to me was scrubbing all the bathrooms: upstairs, downstairs, and down the hall. I di...

    Do Not Be Dismayed from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about becoming “Dismayed.” To be dismayed means “to be downcast, disappointed, disheartened, filled with terror.” It replaces hope and will lead you to a dark place. We become ineffective and...

    Count it all joy, my brothers, when you fall into various temptations, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. Let endurance have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2 WEBMy Dad was born during the great depression in the early 1930s...

Something from Nothing

  • However, not to give offense to them, go to the sea and cast a hook and take the first fish that comes up, and when you open its mouth you will find a shekel. Take that and give it to them for me and for yourself. Matt 17:27 ESV

    When Jesus came to Capernaum, the tax collectors asked Peter for taxes. Jesus told him to go fishing and the first fish that he caught would have a silver coin in its mouth, and to use that to pay them. What are the chances of that? I grew up fishing and never caught one like that.

    Once when out of work for a season, I really needed two-hundred-fifty dollars to pay a bill and had no way to get it. After I went to church that Sunday, I noticed an envelope tucked into my Bible. When I opened it, there were two one-hundred dollar bills and a fifty. I still do not know for sure who did it, but they certainly heard from the Lord that time.

    We like to be self sustaining, and to have to depend on others is a struggle. But when you find that you have to depend on God, you will find that He is more than enough.

    So today if you find yourself in a tight spot, know that He is able to help you. Don't give up. God Almighty is the one that brings something, from nothing.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, You know my needs before I even ask, and You know the things that I am facing. Please provide for me and boost my faith along the way, in the name of Jesus I pray.

    Note: For those who celebrate with us in the US, happy Thanksgiving :)! Wherever you are from, we are truly thankful for each of you and pray that the Lord blesses you and yours with a joyful and safe day!!!

Prayer: Heavenly Father, You know my needs before I even ask, and You know the things that I am facing. Please provide for me and boost my faith along the way, in the name of Jesus I pray. Amen! Amen!! We have experienced a very humbling season over the last few years... through this time  our Heavenly Father has provided in so many awesome ways it >> could only be God nudging the heart of others to be his hands and feet!! Just like recently through this wild fire horror>>beautiful and wonderful people have stepped up to give to all the displaced (L). Our home town was spared (Thank GOD) but in the process we were cut off from access to enter the town of Chico (where my husbands check was waiting to be picked up) God made sure we had all our needs met through that time by the most kind hearted gift of love from parties that shall remain nameless but have a heart of gold to send such a significant gift that we were insured a way to get our granddaughter to her state gymnastic competition 5+ hours away!! What a mighty & loving Father we have that would make sure, even in a time of life and death, that my grandchild's dream of competing was not forgotten (L) Through that gift we were able to upgrade our tires so the long road trip would be safe and provide some special gifts for Araya to treasure for a life time!! We were blessed by rain yesterday which has helped contain that deadly fire!!! Praise God!!!! It's time to start rebuilding our beautiful community of Butte County and I have NO DOUBT that God will provide the way (A)Thank you Father for ALL you do!!! Thank you Pastor for reminding us what a loving Father we have (L) God bless ya'll
