When the Son of Man Cometh, Shall He Find Faith on the Earth?

Another Lord's day. 
Another chance to worship our Almighty God,
and Saviour Jesus Christ. 
We went to a local church this morning,
and a visiting preacher preached a message very similar
to the one my husband preached to the same church, 
a few weeks ago.

This morning's message had Fire and Life in it,
but, few in the church seemed to feel it. 
It was wonderful to see, and feel God working through, 
His God called minister, but, heartbreaking to see the null and void look
on the faces of most of the congregation.

When the service began, rather nonchalantly,
I wanted to shout out. "God deserves better than this!" 
The songs were seemingly sung without meaning,
prayer requests, seemed to be spoken in the wind,
I just couldn't wait for the service to be over, and get to leave.

Guess, I felt a little like Elijah, when he said,
"Lord they have killed your prophets,
and torn down your Altars, and I alone, am left." 
God told Elijah, He had 7,000 that had never bowed a knee to Baal. 

But, when the visiting preacher stood and began to preach,
things took a different turn in the service.
The Holy Spirit passed our way,
confirming the word of the preacher to be true.
Though, most of the church, seemed not to recognize It's presence,
it was reassuring to know,
there are some who still worship God in Spirit and Truth.

I've said before, if you can still feel the Holy Spirit in your church,
guard it with all your heart, keep close to God,
and don't let the Fire die out in the House of God.

But, if you don't know what I am talking about,
when I speak of the Holy Spirit; you can know. 

When you feel convicted of your sins, and ask God to forgive you,
when God forgives you, that is when you feel the Holy Spirit,
or Holy Ghost the strongest,
and you will know without a doubt, that it is coming from God. 

Then throughout your daily life from then on,
you will feel the Holy Spirit,
as It leads and guides you through all truth. 

As Jesus said in, John 4: 14
But, whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him
shall never thirst;
but the water that I shall give him
shall be in him a well of water springing up
into everlasting life.

Jesus said, He lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
No, I am not a preacher, just a sinner, saved by the grace of God.  

I want everyone to know that God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son,
and the Holy Ghost are real. 

I also want everyone to know if they are not saved,
that they can be saved anywhere,
they don't have to be in a church to be saved.

We have a preaching friend that told us when he prayed to get saved,
he went to the Altar at church and prayed, but,
didn't feel like he'd gotten saved. 

So, he went back again and prayed like this:
"Lord if I go to Hell, I'll go believing in you."
At that instant, he said, God saved him.

Praise God!

Our lives here will end, but, we will live forever, somewhere.



Please pray for God's churches all around the world.

Worried About the Comet Elenin?

Lately, I've been seeing a lot of articles on the internet,
about the comet Elenin. 
Many are indicating that they are truly worried,
that it will crash into the earth. 
I know that anything is possible, but, not all things probable.
Sometimes we can get worked into a frenzie over things, that we need not to.
The thing I am reminded of most is, that God is in control, and like the song
says, 'nothing can touch me that doesn't pass through His hands.'
There is a verse in the bible, that brings comfort in these times of restlessness and media hype:

Philippians 4: 6, 7

Be careful for nothing; but in everything
by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
 let your request be made known unto God. 

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

May God Bless and Keep You, Trisha

Vintage Blessings

Vintage Expresso, Old Gas Lamp, Old Needlework
   We had a wonderful weekend; 
we got to spend time with our daughter, son-in-law, and grandson, and do some yard saling and flea marketing. 

The weather was great and
God blessed our visit, and trip.
   We found some really nice things,

I love the old copper expresso maker;
but, the most unusual thing we found 
was this old gas lamp
w/ original shade. 
 I also love the old patriotic needlework.  

 We found a lot of red glass,
 a mother of pearl cigarette case,
vintage dresser items, and much more. 
 We couldn't have had a better weekend
if we had ordered one from
The Saturday Evening Post. 
 We thank God for a Blessed weekend. 
Hope you are Blessed today, and always.

Don't Let the Fire Die Out in the House of God

   The church was set up to be a light to a lost and dying world. 
 There used to be fire in the House of God, by fire, I mean, the Holy Ghost. 
 No, I'm not talking about wildfire, as my husband calls it,
some churches are good at that, too;
I'm talking about the real Holy Spirit of God   

We go to many churches in several different counties;
and have been noticing that most local churches are losing their fire.
Ten years ago, if anyone had asked where a good Spiritual church was,
we could have directed them to several, but, not today, they are few.

My husband likened it to being away from home, and getting lost;
and asking a blind man to show you the way home.
Our churches are supposed to be a light to a lost world,
yet they are increasingly becoming like the Laodicean church,
 that the apostle John wrote about.

If you are attending a Holy Ghost filled church,
please guard your relationship with God,
and don't make room for Satan's attack,
it's easier to guard what you have,
than to get it back, when it's gone. 
Keep the fire burning in the House of God. 

But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst;
but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water
springing up into everlasting life.

John 4:14

What is that well of water springing up into everlasting life, that John speaks of?
The Holy Ghost and Fire.

Blessings friend, don't give up your search for a Spirit filled church,
some still exist.
Until next time, Trisha

Finds from the Stanford City Wide Yardsale

Old Singer Sewing Machine

 We found a few things at the city wide yard sale in Stanford, Ky.  last weekend.  We found this old Singer sewing machine, and purchased it to go in an old Singer sewing machine cabinet,  we already had.  We had a great time and met a lot of really nice people.   We didn't find the usual loads of glassware, that we normaly do, on the big sales.  We found lots of nice glass, but, the prices were more than the antique shops have it priced for.  We did find this cute little vintage string holder.  Hope you have a Blessed day,  Trisha

Thank God for the Old Country Church

  This morning we went to Tidalwave Baptist Church in Whitley County.  It was a beautiful early Fall morning, with high clouds and a warm breeze. The church stood on top a small hill, as a beacon of hope to a lost world.  You can see my husband, preacher, heading around the building.     
Tidalwave Missionary Baptist Church
  We had intended on going to another church this morning, but, was led to Tidalwave.  It had been several months since we had been to Tidalwave, but, my husband said, we were going there this morning, because he had a message.                       
The Pastor Brian Reeder asked my husband to preach.  The message was to the church, the message was FAITH.  I don't know what trials the church, or it's members are, or will be facing; I only know when God leads, we need to follow.  The congregation did come to the Altar to pray.  It was a beautiful sight.  Please keep this church in your prayers.
  So many will not bow a knee anymore, even in little country churches.  When we are too proud to bow a knee to a Holy God, how then can we petition Him for a favor?  Dare we even ask?  
Have a Blessed day, wherever you are, Trisha
