“Make me a Book worm for Jesus.”

Charles Spurgeon picked up a Bible with a hole made all the way through by a worm, and he cried out, “Make me a Book worm for Jesus.”
 Let this be not only the cry of our hearts, but the reality of our lives!

God's Goodness Portrayed Through Autumn

Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. Isaiah 6:3 
The earth is full of the goodness of the LORD. Psalm 33:5 
God saw all that He had made, and it was very good. Genesis 1:31
I have never loved autumn as much as I do this year. The goodness of the Lord is being revealed to my heart through His beautiful creation. I love to observe that which He has created! Me and some of my family took a hike up Horse Tooth and it was the most beautiful I have ever seen it! Below is a collaboration of some of the time spent with my Jesus and with my camera whether hiking or just wandering about in my backyard!:) Oh, how I love my precious Lord!

This one reminds me of an enchanted valley of some sort!

May this be a reminder to always walk in His ways!
My view of the trail - and yes, I read while hiking!

My handsome brother, David!

Isn't the Lord so marvelous?!

Dad and Jessi :) So cute!

I absolutely love this one - some of my favorite things
Bible, sunrises and the ocean! 
Sweet Talia Rose!

Yes, this is in New Jersey, but I think it is just so lovely !

to set lives free….


Shocking News: Gathered information of a doctor selling 12- 15 months babies to unknown people. It is not for adoption but the real purpose is not known. A mother who was trapped by this doctor shared the information with Indian Rescue Mission today.

There is possibility that he is selling these kids bodies are used to make pickles in China, or for child suicide bombers, or for training into begging.

We are gathering more information on this. Found that recently Police caught hold of this doctor (not raid) and doctor bribed the Police Rs. 2,00,000.

We need to use a special branch and conduct raid on doctor’s clinic and home. One of the team members needs to act as customer and then bust out this racket.

One baby is sold for 90000 he gives half of it to mother and half he keeps it for himself.

Indian Rescue Mission Planning to conduct raid on his clinic and bust this racket out. Keep us in prayers.

The Power Of Modesty

Holy Father, may you build up ladies that are willing to follow Your ways in the way they dress and in the way that they act as in the days of old. Teach us Your ways, O Lord, so that we may be changed by grace for Your glory. Thank you for enabling the godly young women of this generation to live a quiet and humble life, hidden within Christ, their first Love.

Bring the spirit of humility within us, and humble us in your sight. May we honor you in our hearts, and honor, respect the men around us and cause their eyes to be led towards You! Guard their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus so that they can focus on You alone. Oh Lord, have mercy on us  for being a distraction to our dear brothers in Christ! Cause us only care about what You think of us. Thank you Lord Jesus, for Your precious, cleansing, purifying blood! Oh how I love Thee.  Hallelujah!

My Dearest Sisters,

This is a very neat video that I would highly recommend watching. I want to encourage you all to take it to heart, and allow the spirit of conviction to come upon you. Although it may seem impossible at times, we know that the Lord will help us and we must claim this promise ~ According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue 2 Peter 1:3

Oh may we live for His glory alone! I love you all so very dearly!

Kneel Before Your Master

As a camel kneels before his master to have him remove his burden at the end of the day, so kneel each night and let the Master take your burden. ~ Corrie Ten Boom

The Bible

This writing about the Bible was written in a very beautiful, old Bible that someone gave to our family. It was written in 1916. It was in handwriting that was quite hard to read, so there is a section taken out... But it was beautifully written and I felt led to share with you all. May the  Love of our Lord overflow your hearts and minds in Christ. Much love to you all!

Presented to Daughter Snowdie and Son Raymond
By Father and Mother: Joseph and Rachel Sizelove

The Bible

This book contains the mind of God, the state of men, the way of Salvation, Son of Sinners and happiness of believers,
Its Doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable.
Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy,
It contains light to direct you, food to support you, to comfort and cheer you.
It is the travelers map, the pilgrims staff, and pilots compass, the soldiers sword, and the Christians charter.
Here Paradise is restored, ... (unreadable section)
Christ is its grand Spirit, its our good life designs, and the glory of God its end.
It should will your memories, rule your hearts, and guide your feet.
Read it slowly, frequently, and prayerfully.
It's a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory and a river of pleasure.
It is given you in life, will be opened at the Judgement and be remembered forever.
It involved the highest risk and impossibility,
Swords the greatest labor, and condemns all who trifle with its contents.

Christ's Commands to Make Disciples, Not Returning Customers

An evil resides in the professed camp of the Lord so gross in its impudence that the most shortsighted can hardly fail to notice it. During the past few years it has developed at an abnormal rate even for evil. It has worked like leaven until the whole lump ferments. The devil has seldom done a cleverer thing than hinting to the Church that part of their mission is to provide entertainment for the people, with a view to winning them. From speaking out as the Puritans did, the Church has gradually toned down her testimony, then winked at and excused the frivolities of the day. Then she tolerated them in her borders. Now she has adopted them under the plea of reaching the masses.

My first contention is that providing amusement for the people is nowhere spoken of in the Scriptures as a function of the Church.If it is a Christian work why did not Christ speak of it? ‘Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.’ That is clear enough. So it would have been if He has added, ‘and provide amusement for those who do not relish the gospel.’ No such words, however, are to be found. It did not seem to occur to Him. Then again, ‘He gave some apostles, some prophets, some pastors and teachers, for the work of the ministry.’ Where do entertainers come in? The Holy Spirit is silent concerning them. Were the prophets persecuted because they amused the people or because they refused? The concert has no martyr roll.

Again, providing amusement is in direct antagonism to the teaching and life of Christ and all His apostles. What was the attitude of the Church to the world? ‘Ye are the salt,’ not sugar candy — something the world will spite out, not swallow. Short and sharp was the utterance, ‘Let the dead bury their dead.’ He was in awful earnestness!

Had Christ introduced more of the bright and pleasant elements into His mission, He would have been more popular when they went back, because of the searching nature of His teaching. I do not hear Him say, ‘Run after these people, Peter, and tell them we will have a different style of service tomorrow, something short and attractive with little preaching. We will have a pleasant evening for the people. Tell them they will be sure to enjoy it. Be quick, Peter, we must get the people somehow!’ Jesus pitied sinners, sighed and wept over them, but never sought to amuse them. In vain will the Epistles be searched to find any trace of the gospel amusement. Their message is, ‘Come out, keep out, keep clean out!’ Anything approaching fooling is conspicuous by its absence. They had boundless confidence in the gospel and employed no other weapon.

After Peter and John were locked up for preaching, the Church had a prayer meeting, but they did not pray, ‘Lord grant Thy servants that by a wise and discriminating use of innocent recreation we may show these people how happy we are.’ If they ceased not for preaching Christ, they had not time for arranging entertainments. Scattered by persecution, they went everywhere preaching the gospel. They ‘turned the world upside down.’ That is the difference! Lord, clear the Church of all the rot and rubbish the devil has imposed on her and bring us back to apostolic methods.

Lastly, the mission of amusement fails to affect the end desired. It works havoc among young converts. Let the careless and scoffers, who thank God because the Church met them halfway, speak and testify. Let the heavy-laden who found peace through the concert not keep silent! Let the drunkard to whom the dramatic entertainment has been God’s link in the chain of their conversion, stand up! There are none to answer. The mission of amusement produces no converts. The need of the hour for today’s ministry is believing scholarship joined with earnest spirituality, the one springing from the other as fruit from the root. The need is biblical doctrine, so understood and felt, that it sets men on fire.

-Charles Spurgeon (1887)
