To those of you who may think I’ve fallen off the planet, I have not. Okay, so the election did distract me a little . . .
In spite of all that, I have continued to work on research for my next post. That post has morphed into two or three posts, kind of being written simultaneously. I’m in the process of placing the appropriate information in the appropriate places. I’m checking all my facts, adding, editing and polishing, and when they’re ready, you’ll see them.
This sweet account of God’s provision was passed on to me from one of the folks at church. It touched my heart and I wanted to pass it on here.
GoodSoil Ministries is located in Jellico, TN and serves the community in a number of different ways there, as well as affecting missions world-wide. I’ve posted once before about GoodSoil and some of the work they do in Jellico. That post, with video, is well worth a peek. I especially like the music on the last half of the video – it stuck with me for days. Take 10 minutes. You will be blessed. Click HERE to view “Jesus Changes People” .
This mass-email was originally from Steve Meeks of GoodSoil Ministries:
This will only take a minute, but you gotta hear this story from Sunday….
Sunday evening, the church ate together after worshipping. I sat with Bobby and Larry–both less than 3 weeks old in Christ. Bobby is in his 60s; Larry is 22.
They talked. I listened (and ate).
“You know,” said Bobby, “I fed my horse the last bag of feed I had the other day. Honestly, Steve, I didn’t know where I was going to get the money to keep feeding him. So, I just left it to God.”
He continued in his slow quiet metered voice, “The next day Jeff (a neighbor) called me. He said, ‘I have a bag of feed over here for you. Come get it when you want to.'”
At that moment Larry jumped in (less metered, more excited and with youthful volume), “That’s just like me! I prayed for a job the other night and the next morning the phone woke me up and it was the motel asking if I could come to work!”
We grinned with pride in our Heavenly Father. Bobby said, “God is amazin’, id’n He?”
It took parted waters to amaze some; ten plagues didn’t phase others, but here in Jellico a bag of horse feed and a minimum wage job have us on the edge of our seats! I’m telling you……hearts are ripe here–riper than anyone ever imagined. Keep praying out there, there is a harvest here…
Amazed as well,
