    He told them this parable. 'Which of you men, if you had one hundred sheep, and lost one of them, wouldn't leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one that was lost, until he found it?'

    Yahweh spoke to Manasseh, and to his people; but they didn't listen. Therefore Yahweh brought on them the captains of the army of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh in chains, bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon. When he was in distress, he begged Yahweh his God, and humbled himse...

The One Who Makes Dreams Come True

  • May He grant you your hearts desire and fulfill all your plans! Psalms 20:4 ESV

    It was so hot in the field that day that people were getting sick to their stomachs and the rest of us had to crop their row. As a young boy about twelve working in the tobacco field, my world was very small. My family was the least of the least and I was in my twenties before I even knew what college was, and we could never have afforded it anyway.

    Still I had the desire inside to work with computers from the first one that I saw on our black-and-white television, and though I hardly knew what they were, they fascinated me. It was beyond my wildest dream that I could ever work in that field and I did not dare get my hopes up. Things then were difficult. There was no internet to research with as we know it today.

    One day while I was zealously trying to grow closer to God, He changed that and herded me into the computer field just like cattle through a chute. With no formal education, it seemed that it just came naturally and soon other technicians were calling me for advice. What I laid hands on, I fixed, and load balancing Linux mail servers became just another day at work. Computer programming just seemed to make sense and I picked right up on it. I now use those same skills to spread His word.

    God is able to fulfill your wildest dreams. In fact, He is the one that gives them to us just as Joseph had his dream as a young boy. My dreams started to come to pass when I put Him first in my life. When nothing else mattered but Him, He gave me everything else. He is the One that makes dreams come true.

    Prayer: Father, please reveal the gifts that you have placed in my life and teach me to use them better. Please use the skills and gifts that you have given me for Your kingdom, in the name of Jesus.

Nell Neathery
Nell Neathery I was born where the cotton fields and flat lands are in Rayville, Louisiana, near  the Mississippi border, in 1957.  Now, I have a 1-year-old grandson as of today in 2015.  God has shown me a way to go home to Louisiana and live in the same neighborhood where my grandson is with his mother and the father of her baby she will have in December.  I will hopefully be able to help Megan, my daughter, and my grandchildren grow closer to Jesus like I have since I moved here to Henderson, TX 2 years ago.  He has revealed gifts to me and taught me to use them better, thanks in a large part to Refreshing Hope Ministries, and I will be able to use my skills and gifts better in the name of Jesus!

Virginia Turner
Virginia Turner God puts His plans and desires in your heart, and as long as you tell Him that you are willing to do HIS Will, stay focused in His Word, stay in prayer and fellowship with Him....... . . . HE WILL work it out IN HIS OWN TIME.  Job said, "He knows the way that I take and when I am tried, I will come forth as Gold."  However, it still will not stop the devil from doing his own "thing" on you and your life either.
