Monday Quotes!

Peter Marshall

1902-1949

Teach us, O Lord

the discipline of patience,

for to wait is often harder than

to work.

Monday Quote!

Benjamin Franklin

1706-1790

Educate your children to self-control to the habit of holding passion and prejudice and evil tendencies subject to an upright and reasoning will, and you have done much to abolish misery from their future and crimes from society.

Monday Quote!

Francis Bacon 1561-1626

The pencil of the Holy Ghost hath laboured more in

describing the afflictions of Job

than the felicities of Solomon.

Monday Quote!

Dr. Thomas Arnold 1795-1842

My object will be, if possible to form Christian men,

for Christian boys I can scarcely hope to make.

A letter, in 1828, on the appointment to Headmaster of Rugby.

Suspended Children

Who are the suspended Children?

You see them every day, they are all around you.

These children are the children who do not know Jesus!

All around you in this country in your neighborhood are children 9 to 12 years of age who do not know Jesus. There may even be a suspended child in your home. These children do not know what sin is and they do not know Hell is a real place. These children are suspended above the flames of Hell waiting for you to teach them about the wages of sin. Romans 6:23; “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus.”

You and I who say that we are followers of Christ have been given a commission by Jesus: Mark 16: 15-16; “And He said (Jesus) to them, “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to EVERY creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved: he who does not believe is condemned.”

Our world is the people living around us these are the ones we are to teach the Gospel. In my thinking our Abba Father Wants to move among the people of the world again and wants to embrace the children of the United States. In the past when there was a move of God it has been a move in the younger people in this nation. I think back to Jesus people of 1960’s it was the young people touched by Jesus and the way we did church in America has been changed forever. The movement came about by one man with a burden and a prayer to reach the hippies. Young people the hippies had emptiness in their hearts and were searching for something to fill the void.

One day my heart became so burdened for children, it may have been after one of the school shootings, hearing about children having sex at the age of ten with one another, or even after seeing the lines of children waiting to buy the new Harry Potter book. Children are exposed to so much emptiness these days my heart broke, so I prayed. For about three years I prayed for the children. God gave me Donkey Tells, simply said, Donkey Tells is the Gospel of Jesus Christ told to children for the ages of 9 to 12 year old.

With all the disasters happening in this country as of lately I found myself in the book of Joel. Joel used the disasters to call the people to repent. I am not saying that the disasters in our country are judgments of God. One verse jumped out at me Joel 1:3;

Tell your children about it

Let you children tell their

Children.

And their children another

Generation.

God created donkeys to come alongside of man to help him carry the loads in life that were too heavy to be carried by him. Suspended donkeys are books that help you and are sent out for the suspended children to introduce them to Jesus. “Donkey Tells, A Promise Kept” is the gospel of Jesus Christ in words that anyone can understand. Donkey Tells is a tool to help anyone show a child the love of Jesus. Donkey Tells is a tool to open the door to teach a child about Jesus.

Children Only Know

What YOU

Teach Them!

A suspended book is a book that is bought for a child who does not know Jesus. Maybe you buy one book for yourself and another for the little trouble maker next door.

I am also looking for away to give a book to every child who has fallen into hard times. I wish to give a Suspended Donkey to foster care children, homeless children, any child in need, and all suspended children over the flames of HELL. Donkey Tells, is a donkey that comes alongside and carries them to the loving arms of Jesus.

Jesus said, “Let the Little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for such is the Kingdom of Heaven.” Matthew 19:14

Again a task before me has been given of which I do not know how to do. Again to our Abba I shall not be saying no. Yet to you my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus I am asking you to be of One Accord with me telling the children of the world about the Love of Jesus? I would love to hear your input on how we shall do this task. I have some ideas yet I believe many of you out there may have better ideas than I. Let us be the ones to introduce the Children to Jesus and His love for His glory forever and ever, Amen.

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

ACORNS?

Someone once said, “Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while.” That I find is a mystery to be pondered for sure. 

Still yet I find an even greater mystery for pondering: So numberless are the acorns born each year yet all do fall. Countless acorns are gathered by the beasts of the trees, the beasts of field, and the birds of the air. Acorns unnumbered that are carried away and then, they are no more.

Still yet are the untold acorns that fall to the ground and are never to be found. These lost untold acorns die, rot, and then return to dust of the earth from which they came.

Still yet there are the numbering of acorns that fall to the ground, that do not enter the earth, and yet still they die. In the spring when the rains come these acorns sprout up with new life and push upward to the heavens. Yet when the sun beats down on them in the summer drought, they wither, and death wins. For they are the numbered that have no root deep into the earth. For these numbered did not feed upon the nutrients of the earth nor have they drank fully of the water of life. For these who are the counted also die and return to dust of the earth from which they came.

Still yet are the acorns, the few, that fall to the ground, enter the earth and die. When the spring rain comes these few rise up with new life, and push upward to the heavens as their roots dig downward deep into the earth. Yet when the sun beats down, in the summer drought they do not wither. These few filled with new life have roots dug down deep into the earth to feed upon nutrients of the earth and drink freely of the water of life. As years upon years past, storms come, flood waters rise and fall, yet the years of drought pass by, these few with new life keep growing on. Massive oaks they have become producing much fruit and always growing upward till their purpose has been made full. Then they also die and return to the dust of the earth from which they came. 

 Still yet I find this to be a mystery: So is it also the same with a man? 

BE STILL and WAIT and KNOW!

I have come back to this page again 

to see if words of light dance!

I have two other tasks that beckon

to me come and toil for them. 

Yet Men of One Accord awaits

for some new words of light.

I find no new prose

nor a vision of a poem

is in my sight.

So now is this my time to wait?

A time to contemplate?

So is this the time to be still

 and know?

Yes, Yes my mind is 

really, really blank!

But to be still and wait 

and know?

Yahweh is your God.

So be Still and Wait

and Know.

Brothers and sisters in Christ this me trying to tell you that God has added to the calling in my life. I have two new task that has been set before me to do. One I have been working on for sometime the other is a door that has opened to me. Both task are demanding more of my time and I do not fill free to elaborate on them. The first project I have worked for some time is now moving ahead and I need to spend more time with it fine tuning. The other is a new door that has just open to me a new territory where I have never been before. I will also be keeping up on men’s prayer groups as I am needed there. I follow a lot of blogs and I will still keep following them and may even add more to my list. One thing I do need to do is to slow down on my posting and I am really having a hard time writing new post.

I want to thank every one of you who follows Men of One Accord  from my heart. I love all your comments, your blessings, and encouragement you have brought into my life. Please keep me in your prayers for I will need more of our Abba’s wisdom to discern  the loving truthful words of Christ with all the new people God is bring into my life. I need your prayers for boldness to proclaimed in the gentleness caring concerns of Christ for their souls.            

May the joy of the Lord be with you and the peace that passes all understanding be your resting place. May all who see you be greeted with the love of Christ that is in you. I pray that rivers of blessings flow out of heaven and deep into your souls so that all who meet you has seen the Face of Christ the hope in you, Amen.

Feet that Wander!

Many years ago I first prayed,

Abba hold me close for

I have feet that tend to wander;

Today I pray Abba hold me close 

for there is no other place

 I would rather be!

Abba my feet still tend

to want to wander, 

Yet with Your help my feet

 I have freely restrained,

to wandering feet searching,

for lost wandering lambs

to bring to Your Home!

AMEN. 

Quotes on Prayer! XII

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

The most eloquent prayer is the prayer through hands that heal and bless. The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service. The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless.

Billy Graham

Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but shall be the miracle.

Phillips Brooks

Certain thoughts are prayers. There are moments when, whatever be the attitude of the body, the soul is on its knees.

Victor Hugo

Good Shepherd and Guardian of our souls, we adore You. We adore You in Spirit and in Truth. Let us not lose heart, except to make more room for You in our hearts. Amen.

St. Francis of Assisi

Prayer is striking the winning blow. Service is gathering up the results.

S. D. Gordon

Prayer should never be an excuse for inaction. Nehemiah prayed, but he also set guards for protection. He used common sense. As a result, what had not been done in a hundred years’ time was finished in fifty-two days.

Corrie ten Boom

Nothing is so costly, so exorbitant, so extortionate, as that which is bought by prayer. While, on the other hand, nothing is so truly and everlastingly enriching as that which is gotten and held by prayer, and by prayer alone.

Alexander Whyte

The answer to a prayer request may indeed be long-delayed, but there is no delay at all in an answer to the prayer itself. When we cry out there is immediately an answer speedily God rushes to help. The answer may be the squeeze of the Father’s hand on ours, the quiet comfort of the Father’s voice, the reassurance of the Father’s presence even though the stresses and pressures are still evident.

Emilie Barnes 

The end we ought to propose to ourselves is to become, in this life, the most perfect worshipers of God we can possibly be, as we hope to be through all eternity.

Brother Lawrence, a sixteenth-century monk

Somebody once said God feeds the sparrow, but God never throws the food in the nest. Christ like men, who are wise never make prayer a substitute for work, nor work an excuse not to pray.
