10Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.11The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.12She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.13She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.14She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.15She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.16She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
17She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.18She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.19She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.20She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.21She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.22She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.23Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.24She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. 25Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
26She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. 27She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.28Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.29Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.30Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.31Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
I most generally get this time wrong, we are about to celebrate our 36th anniversary? Maybe 37? OH well! It seems she my wife Linda (MOM) has always been there as I really think very little of life before her…
The FATHER Gave me my own person (Well her gave us to each other) a person whom HE knew I would need, a woman who has went though many ups and downs with me, a woman well she is most like the above proverbs, she makes sure the family is taken care of as well as the poor, read it, it’s all about my wife or so it would seem! HAPPY 36th dear wife!
She is not flashy nor really wants to be rich, yes she wishes all the past bills were gone, yearns to help family and the poor, believing the greatest pleasure come from giving as she does her whole heart! but she is a truly who is a woman of faith
“Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” Faith is believing in things you cannot see or has happened yet if you truly believe HIM on high then you act on what HE says “Hebrews 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.”
To live by FAITh we must be obedient and believe HIS word…so we act, She and I believe in what we were told to do and we act on it…the Mission Church is a great example as it is head towards starting our 23rd year…”James 2:18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.” Works come as the natural fruit of a beleiver, they come because of our your abilitry to move forward when nothing is there or example, we make the trip to the Mission sometimes not having even gas to return home or buy food, but we leave drive 60 miles one way and the FATHER always get the people fed and us back home…I could go on for hours…
We are a minsitry that does not have a budget, meaning while we have some very dependable supporters who some send faithfully donations each month or week, still even their donations have went up or down or delayed and so forth so we really truly never know what funds we will have….yes bless those faithful people as their continued support and some upping the donations we would not still be working…the FATHER is truly using them…
So we spend sometimes down to only a few dollars in the bank or pocket if you will, beleiving that it will be replenished whne the need is there…MOST people cannot do that, my wife is one of those special women who has that kind of FAITH! So the FATHER gave me woman who can and truly does live by faith, which also makes her prayers our prayers of healing very,very, strong, why because we believe by FAITH. Yes many times we hit a brick wall and our faith is tested like right now….(what’s new?)
We are strating to get back a donation that started coming before covid…it was food donatiosn of all kinds of things more than we could use quickly, so we gave a huge amount away….yes that is what we do is pass things on and not hoard but truly it was to get us stocked before the first covid year, covid started and that donation when down to almost nothing, in fact I almost stopped going and picking up what they did have to offer…but I believed it would go back up and it has…now we are starting to get back restock items like number 10 cans of food, I feel something once again is coming soon very big so why because here comes the stock! (Yes we still need donations for meat and Bibles etc)
OK so where does this FAITH thing come in now, well we have to pick the food up…that is why we own trucks…The DEVIL once aging is working over-time on us…My wife’s truck, a DODGE RAM 2004 hasd a lot of good work done to it new upper end and so on but it has some sort of werid short when out of nowhere you hit a bump and it dies, we have been trying months to find it (you have to get towed home)and have not been able to so she has been driving the 1996 ford taurus back up vehicle we have, trhen my son has a 1997 ford f-150 truck that the rear end justr went out of (we are looking at salvages) so a rear end assembly for it could run up to 1,200 or as low as $500 for all parts to get ir fixed…no funds for it, Ok then I have my 1997 ford f-150 with a new engine and transmission bought this year….BUT it has some electronic part or something causing it to miss really bad and drink gas…no further funds to send to a shop but my son is trying to figure it out…..
So all that to say we really are hurting because how are we going to pick food up? WE somehow by FAITH It will happen..
Most eveything is closed on December 25th so we ahev always been open, People are counting on this meal to eat…generally someone sponsers the meal, last year somone gave her and I a gift of some money for us and my wife and I did not hesitate to buy the meal….so this year who knows but the FATHER what will happen, but we believe the meal and our trucks will get fixed or just FLAT OUT HE will provide some way, that is by FAITH
ANYWAY next week whiole I am unsure how we will celbrate our 36th (or 37th) anniversary we will be feeding the people, but we will be taking off radio and doing news on prophecy hour unless omething really needsa badly reported….
Lift us in prayer, help if you can!
In HIS Perfect Peace,
Pastor Dan Catlin
