An excited young lady had just received her drivers license.  Before starting on her first trip, she prayed “Lord, guide me.”
While driving she faced an emergency. The car in front of her had stopped.  The truck behind her was bearing down upon her.  “Lord,” she cried, “take over!”  And He did!

Moses faced an emergency. Before him was the sea, behind him was the enemy.  Moses called on the Lord.

(Ex 14:13-26).

Whenever you find yourself facing an emergency  -- remember –The Lord is stronger than the strongest, wiser than the wisest, and greater than the greatest. Call on Him & He will deliver.

(Psalm 91:15)

Jesus knows the circumstances of every soul. The greater the sinner's guilt, the more he needs the Saviour.

Jesus knows the circumstances of every soul. The greater the sinner's guilt, the more he needs the Saviour. 

Jesus does not desire those who have been purchased at such a cost to become the sport of the enemy's temptations.

He does not desire us to be overcome and perish. 

He who curbed the lions in their den, and walked with His faithful witnesses amid the fiery flames, is just as ready to work in our behalf to subdue every evil in our nature.

Today He is standing at the altar of mercy, presenting before God the prayers of those who desire His help.
He turns no weeping, contrite one away.  Freely will  He pardon all who come to Him for forgiveness and restoration.
Whosoever will, may take hold of God's strength, and make peace with Him, and He will make peace.
 The Ministry of Healing, page 89 – 90

Don’t  Jump To  Conclusions

A woman was flying from Seattle to San Francisco.  Unexpectedly, the plane was diverted to Sacramento along the way.  The flight attendant explained that there would be a delay, and if the passengers wanted to get off the aircraft the plane would re-board in 50 minutes.

Everybody got off the plane except one lady who was blind.  The man had noticed her as he walked by and could tell the lady was blind because her Seeing Eye dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of her throughout the entire flight.

He could also tell she had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached her, and calling her by name, said, “Kathy, we are in Sacramento for almost an hour.  Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?”

The blind lady replied, “No thanks, but maybe my dog would like to stretch his legs.”

Picture this:  All the people in the gate area came to a complete standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with a Seeing Eye dog!  The pilot was even wearing sunglasses!  People scattered. They not only tried to change planes, but they were trying to change airlines!  
So, don’t jump to conclusions without the full benefits of the facts.

Toxic Air.jpg

From the Director...
Rosie Taylor RN

We live in a toxic environment.   The air we breathe is becoming increasingly more toxic.  Our food supply is being subjected to more and more chemical fertilizers, pesticides and GMO (Genetically Modified Organism). Bottled water, once a luxury, has become a common staple due primarily to the concern over the health of our water supply.

So, what do we do? How do we handle this TOXIC state that we are in?
“Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.” Psalm 119:73.

The human organism is the handiwork of God. The organs employed in all the different functions of the body were made by Him.  As we co-operate with Him, making efforts to know ourselves, to understand how to care for the delicate human machinery, He will give us wisdom.

We need to first understand the body’s natural process for removing toxins and then research whole-food ingredients that can assist the body’s cleansing process, giving the body tools to work with. The body is constantly working to eliminate toxins through the liver. The liver removes toxins from the blood before returning it to circulation.   It then metabolizes those toxins so they can be removed from the body.   In a healthy digestive system, those toxins are then trapped and bound by fiber and gently removed from the body.

Toxic chemicals, food preservatives, bad diet, environmental toxins, cigarettes, alcohol and prescription drugs all deteriorate the liver, drain its energy and make it hard or virtually impossible for it to do its job.  Once the liver gets overloaded accumulating toxins, its life sustaining functions begin to suffer and gradually drop out.  This places the body in a state of emergency that debilitates & damages all other organs, opening the door to chronic health problems, fatigue, emotional stress, depression and the list goes on.

So how do we handle this Toxic state that we are in? How do we co-operate with God to bring about cleansing and ultimately healing?  

Remember the 8 doctors?

Pure air, sunlight, abstemiousness, rest, exercise, proper diet, the use of water, trust in divine power,--these are the true remedies.  Every person should have a knowledge of nature's remedial agencies and how to apply them. It is essential both to understand the principles involved in the treatment of the sick and to have a practical training that will enable one rightly to use this knowledge.  {Counsels on Diet and Food 301.3}

“Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.”

As it is in the physical, so it is in the spiritual.  Christ is cleansing the temple in heaven from the sins of the people, and we must work in harmony with him upon the earth, cleansing the soul temple from its moral defilement.  If we will work thus, we shall find that the sweet influence of God's Spirit will be wrought into our life. {RH, February 11, 1890 par. 4} 

The Lord just wants us clean – mentally, physically & spiritually so that we may be fit vessels for Him.

A mother was discussing with her daughter, who was full of complaints about life; on handling adversities. She took her to the kitchen, filled three pots with water, and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to a boil. In one she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and the last she placed tea bags. The daughter waited patiently. In about 20 minutes, she turned off the burners. She placed each item in a separate bowl. She asked the daughter to feel the carrots. She did and  noticed that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg & break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg. Finally, she asked the daughter to sip the tea. She smiled as she tasted its rich aroma.

She humbly asked,"What does it mean, Mom?"

The mother explained that each item had faced the same adversity, boiling water, but each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong and hard. But after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak.

The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior. But after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened.

The tea bags were unique however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.

"Which are you’ she asked her daughter. "When adversity knocks on your door, how do

you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg, or a tea bag?"


How about you? Are you the carrot that seems hard, but with pain & adversity do you wilt and become soft and lose your strength?

Are you the egg, which starts off with a malleable heart, a soft & loving spirit; but in the mist of adversity become hardened & stiff. Your shell looks the same, but are you bitter & tough with a stiff spirit & heart?

Or are you like the tea bag? The bag changes the hot water, the thing that is bringing the pain. When the water gets the hottest, it just taste better.

If you are like the tea bag, when things are at its worst, you seek the Lord for guidance, & make things better around you.

When people talk about you, do your praises to the Lord increase? When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest, does your worship elevate to another level?

How do you handle adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg, or a tea bag?

 How Is Your Patience?

A  teacher noticed one of her kindergarten students struggling to put his boots on. He asked for help and she could see why.  With her pulling and him pushing, the boots were on, she had worked up a sweat, She almost whimpered when the little boy said. “Teacher, they’re on the wrong feet.” She looked and sure enough, they were.  It wasn’t any easier pulling the boots off than it was putting them on.  She managed to keep her cool as together they worked to get the boots back on—this time on the right foot.  He then announced, “ These aren’t my boots.”  She bit her tongue rather than get right in his face and scream, “Why didn’t you say so?”  like she wanted to.  Once again she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off.  He then said, “They’re my brother’s boots.  My Mom made me wear them.” She didn’t know if she should laugh or cry.  She mustered up the grace to wrestle the boots on his feet again.  She said, “Now, where are your mittens?”  He said, “ I stuffed them in the toes of my boots…”

“Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.”   James 1:3,4
“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”  Galatians 6:9
