    Lord, our nation is at a crossroads. Either we are going to turn back to you, or we will turn away, and be led to perdition and slavery and misery and pain. Lord, forbid that we could be so foolish and self-centered as to choose that latter...

    It can't just be me. Have you noticed how commonly we strain at gnats, while logs are firmly lodged in our eyes??? Why do we do this? All I've been able to come up with is that somewhere inside us, we DON'T really want to know the undiluted,...

    Lord, please be with Wally, and let him be healed. It doesn't matter how you choose to do this, just that you leave him here to help Preacher Jim in his ministry, and that you give him an experience that will be useful as an example for those who...

    I hate to admit it, but the simple truth is that I'm pretty hard soil, that has had to be plowed and disced many times over to get me soft enough to grow good seed. I've been stuck on doing things MY way, rather than His, and this has led me down...

    All I know is that when my father died, my first mental vision of him was him wearing some old jeans, rolled up to the knees, a nondescript short sleeve shirt, an old straw hat with the rim bindings partly gone, and some frazzeling around the edges,...

    You might try this . Heat to red until you lose the dull look and quench in 120 degree oil. Check to see if a file will cut them. If not they are hardened. Then put in the oven to 475 degrees for 30 minutes . Then if the "sharp" file will bite...

    It seems that the hardest thing for us humans to do, is to keep our perspective adjusted to where it needs to be. So very, very much is lost, from simply not keeping the right perspective. We see everything, practically, through the prism of our...

    Lord, you have loved us when we weren't very lovable. You have led us even when we were determined to every way BUT the one you wanted us to take. You have protected us from most of the consequences of our thoughts and decisions and actions. You...

    As a knifemaker using coal fired forge, etc, etc, we are warned to use protection against "any" particulent floating in the air from filing,grinding or whatever. Bone dust for one enters the lungs and sticks becoming permanent. This type is called...

    You know, it's kind'a funny how when we think of the "cost" of walking with God, we always view the question through the prism of our own wills, rather than looking at all the wondrous benefits of having a loving God by our side, helping see us...

    Shooters and reloaders are a shrinking lot, and it's so very sad when another one of our group passes on. We need all the understanding and support we can get, and that is in VERY short supply these days. God bless his family and friends. If he...

    Excellent post, and most relevant to all of us today. And furthermore, the main prerequisite to submitting to the Lord and His instructions and advice, is to simply be humble - not "mousey," but humble. When we've humbled ourselves before the...
