Dear Princess, Number 10 (Summer 1999)

February 7, 2004

Dear Princess, Number 10 (Summer 1999) | Timeless Truths Publications, 1999 Trust
I am satisfied that God knew we would not know what we were doing. He meant for us to voluntarily trust Him by turning from our own ideas and opinions and placing our hand in His hand for guidance. He designed the thing so that we would absolutely need a guide.
Dear Princess, Number 11 (Fall 1999)

February 15, 2004

Dear Princess, Number 11 (Fall 1999) | Timeless Truths Publications, 1999 Obedience
We also each have the town in front of us that God calls us to walk in. What is the town? It is God's way. It seems dark, uncertain, not promising a light, easy life. It calls us to give up our choice things—the things, people, places that are most dear to our hearts.
Dear Princess, Number 1 (November 1996)

January 25, 2003

Dear Princess, Number 1 (November 1996) | Timeless Truths Publications, 1996 Patience
There are two different ways to wait for something. You can nag and complain.... The other way is to wait patiently until it is finished. If it's some long-term thing it helps not think about it constantly. This is not easy to do unless you ask the Lord to help you.
Dear Princess, Number 2 (Spring 1997)

February 8, 2003

Dear Princess, Number 2 (Spring 1997) | Timeless Truths Publications, 1997 Kindness
It is easier to be kinder to our friends.... But the Lord has grace for us to get along with the people we do live with.... We may think, why does someone in my family always have to irritate me? But remember, that if we never had any trials we would never grow.
Dear Princess, Number 3 (Summer 1997)

February 22, 2003

Dear Princess, Number 3 (Summer 1997) | Timeless Truths Publications, 1997 Trust
The Lord doesn't do things under pressure. He just refuses to. We aren't going to help the Lord by trying to hurry things up a bit. The longer we try to "make it work," the longer the Lord leaves us alone with our problem.
Dear Princess, Number 4 (Fall 1997)

March 3, 2003

Dear Princess, Number 4 (Fall 1997) | Timeless Truths Publications, 1997 Trials
God is always giving us trials that are open doors. Every single trial we have is a chance to be an example, to show someone what Christ was like. Oh, dear sisters, take those privileges to be examples seriously! They are so important!
Dear Princess, Number 5 (Winter/Spring 1998)

March 8, 2003

Dear Princess, Number 5 (Winter/Spring 1998) | Timeless Truths Publications, 1998 Submission
How many of us, when we had planned to have a day in town, but have to stay to watch our little siblings, say, "Sure, Mama, whatever works out is fine with me"? Or, when [some plan] doesn't work out... you don't even question why it couldn't be made to work?
Dear Princess, Number 6 (Summer 1998)

April 5, 2003

Dear Princess, Number 6 (Summer 1998) | Timeless Truths Publications, 1998 Love
Love "endureth all things." What?... Does God really have grace for me to love my little sister who cut two big holes in a cross-stitch that took two years to complete?!... If He loved [the Jews who crucified Him], can not I find grace in my heart to love her?
Dear Princess, Number 7 (Fall 1998)

March 29, 2003

Dear Princess, Number 7 (Fall 1998) | Timeless Truths Publications, 1998 Encouragement
I have found His way is best in my own life. When I commit all my thoughts and ideas, hopes and plans to God, how beautifully He works all things out than if I struggle in my own strength!... The Lord had led to me to higher ground to see what really matters.
Dear Princess, Number 8 (Winter 1999)

September 13, 2003

Dear Princess, Number 8 (Winter 1999) | Timeless Truths Publications, 1999 Patience
I have just been thanking the Lord for helping me to choose Him completely in my youth and wait on the Lord for a companion. It surely pays! I was 29 before I married and the wait seemed so long then, but now it seems like nothing! I am so glad I waited on God.
Dear Princess, Number 9 (Spring 1999)

November 29, 2003

Dear Princess, Number 9 (Spring 1999) | Timeless Truths Publications, 1999 Modesty
Take everything to the Word of God and measure it to see whether it be of God or man. If it doesn't line up... then we know that it isn't truth. What better guide do we have than the Word of God? We cannot go wrong if we bring everything and measure it to the Bible.
Foundation Truth, Number 10 (Summer 2004)

September 11, 2004

Foundation Truth, Number 10 (Summer 2004) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2004 Decision
"Can I find, do you think, one answer, one description, which will suit you all—fisherman, mothers, boys and girls, artists, merchants, gentlemen, the old man and the little child? Yes, I can.... Each of you, without exception, might write this—I am a servant.
Foundation Truth, Number 11 (Winter 2005)

January 22, 2005

Foundation Truth, Number 11 (Winter 2005) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2005 Humility
Jesus was quick to give the credit to God. Although He was God Himself... He quickly and reflexively gave the credit for virtue to His heavenly Father. It is this set of heart and mind that avoids the pride of life and lives in humble reliance upon God.
Foundation Truth, Number 12 (Summer 2005)

December 1, 2005

Foundation Truth, Number 12 (Summer 2005) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2005 Church
It is all uphill to the top of the mountains. Also, for people to flow together in this manner, they must melt. There are a whole lot of things that can only work in the Bible pattern if the melting occurs.

Foundation Truth, Number 13 (Spring 2006) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2006 Bible/Word
The men were getting pretty discouraged, and Major Powell would tell them, "Hang on, we'll make it through, we've got to explore this canyon. That's what we set out to do." ...It was starting to look more promising, and then those kind of rocks again.
Foundation Truth, Number 14 (Summer 2006)

September 1, 2006

Foundation Truth, Number 14 (Summer 2006) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2006 Holy Spirit
Whether we are stable or easily unravel, stiff or delicate, able to stretch to meet a life of continual strain or remaining constant in places of high demand, His purposes surpass our understanding. Will we be but yielding fabric in the Master's hands?
Foundation Truth, Number 15 (Autumn 2006)

January 1, 2007

Foundation Truth, Number 15 (Autumn 2006) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2006 Abiding
Men have their policies; they learn and adjust. God does not learn; He knows. Men compel obedience for the greater good. God reveals enough truth to those who have ears to hear that a man can work when the Father works.
Foundation Truth, Number 16 (Winter 2007)

April 1, 2007

Foundation Truth, Number 16 (Winter 2007) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2007 Idolatry
How precious the experience of a clear conscience and a soul at rest! But, if not jealously guarded and valued, it surely can be stolen from us. How can we guard this priceless treasure? By placing extreme value on it.
Foundation Truth, Number 17 (Spring 2007)

June 1, 2007

Foundation Truth, Number 17 (Spring 2007) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2007 Examination
So then I turned from the One who loved me the most and severed the last tie of my salvation. I promise you that it was not the most happy time in my life. It was the darkest. And the most hurtful. God left me alone pretty much.
Foundation Truth, Number 18 (Summer 2007)

Foundation Truth, Number 18 (Summer 2007) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2007 Church
Immediately I got the money, the Lord's voice again came to me saying: "Send most of the money to your family." Whenever the Lord speaks, there is a finality and so joyous a conviction that it cannot be easily mistaken.
Foundation Truth, Number 19 (Winter 2008)

January 1, 2008

Foundation Truth, Number 19 (Winter 2008) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2008 Prophecy
The prophecies were intended for the comfort and edification of those who have paid the price of buying the truth. They cannot be properly understood in all the fullness of their blessing until this step is taken.
Foundation Truth, Number 1 (Winter 2000)

July 19, 2003

Foundation Truth, Number 1 (Winter 2000) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2000 Salvation
The Bible requires a pure heart—a failure on your part to get the Bible promise fulfilled in you will result in you missing heaven, for "blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God," and "without [holiness] no man shall see the Lord."
Foundation Truth, Number 20 (Spring 2008)

June 1, 2008

Foundation Truth, Number 20 (Spring 2008) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2008 Fellowship
Miracles do not proceed from my high ambition to do great work for Jesus. He took the little they had to offer and blessed it and broke it. Blessed and broken. How simple and humble are God's ways of working!
Foundation Truth, Number 21 (Summer 2008)

October 1, 2008

Foundation Truth, Number 21 (Summer 2008) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2008 Vision
Jephthah knows about God, and his knowledge about God is correct, but Jephthah doesn't know God! Think of this! He is facing the greatest crisis of his life, and he doesn't know God! He only knows about Him.

March 1, 2009

Foundation Truth, Number 22 (Winter 2009) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2009 Worship
It is very important that we understand the differences in these experiences. It is possible to mistake our physical and intellectual delights for spiritual experiences when actually our spiritual being has received no divine inspiration at all.
Foundation Truth, Number 23 (Autumn 2009)

November 1, 2009

Foundation Truth, Number 23 (Autumn 2009) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2009 Temptation
A man who prays can spiritually afford to be generous. He can afford to let others have the last word. He can afford to appear inferior in argument. Abram knew that God would take care of him regardless, so he could afford to be generous.
Foundation Truth, Number 24 (Spring 2010)

May 2, 2010

Foundation Truth, Number 24 (Spring 2010) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2010 Light
We must know the greater power of God.... We cannot know this power if we are not willing to call good, good and evil, evil. If we will not agree with God's thinking about things, we will simply have a man-made religion.

Foundation Truth, Number 25 (Summer 2010) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2010 Holy Spirit
I did the stupidest thing—attempt to pull the truck back with my own strength—of course, that didn't help anything. The truck bucked over the curb, and then plowed into the aluminum-extruded, glass-fronted entryway... ka-BOOOOM!
Foundation Truth, Number 26 (Autumn 2010)

January 1, 2011

Foundation Truth, Number 26 (Autumn 2010) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2010 Faith
The first step to walking in faith in God is to renounce your unbelief.... When this is done, when we have been afflicted to the extent that we mourn and weep... then we will be inspired to believe the promises of God.... We will then count Him faithful who promised.
Foundation Truth, Number 27 (Winter/Spring 2011)

April 12, 2011

Foundation Truth, Number 27 (Winter/Spring 2011) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2011 Warfare
I think my biggest battle was myself. I expected more. I wanted to see progress. It was trying on patience to sit with an unresponsive child and give instructions to deaf ears. ...I wondered what the point was. I was handicapped and resented it.
Foundation Truth, Number 28 (Summer 2011)

August 1, 2011

Foundation Truth, Number 28 (Summer 2011) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2011 Grace
"Giving all diligence." ...at its heart it really means, "with all speed." Do it right now! Promptly! Get it taken care of!... That is to say, I need to seek the Lord's help to live a virtuous life right now, when the test of my virtue is on me.
Foundation Truth, Number 29 (Winter 2012)

Foundation Truth, Number 29 (Winter 2012) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2011 Light
...a man is still a man... still just an earthen vessel.... When God has finished beating the mountains small with a worm, then that worm is still a worm—a worm used of God.... "When the work of the Lord is done right, there is no room for the flesh to glory."
Foundation Truth, Number 2 (Spring/Summer 2000)

July 27, 2003

Foundation Truth, Number 2 (Spring/Summer 2000) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2000 Church
The unity that Paul and Apollos had was not a negotiated one.... The essence of that unity came from each being in unity with God. This produced a oneness in Him that did not depend on careful posturing and positioning with each other.

August 2, 2012

Foundation Truth, Number 30 (Summer 2012) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2012 Light
Oh, that men would put away their childish things! That they would seriously and humbly hunger for truth and spiritual reality! That they would... abhor the deadly simplicity of arranging things as they see best.... Most people are proving they are playing at religion.
Foundation Truth, Number 31 (Winter 2013)

Foundation Truth, Number 31 (Winter 2013) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2013 Light
We want to be among and a part of a people where the Holy Ghost is ruling in and through each member.... And we want to detect and submit to the Holy Ghost in each person, in whatever capacity the Holy Ghost sees fit to work in those who have Him indwelling.

September 1, 2013

Foundation Truth, Number 32 (Summer 2013) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2013 Examination
In the world of professing Christianity, there is hardly anything but counterfeit money.... The command to try the spirits is only possible for people that have the true Spirit, else it is only people comparing the false with the false, i.e., counterfeit with counterfeit.

Foundation Truth, Number 3 (Autumn 2000) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2000 Faith
"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God."... Someone has stated that the fool says this in his heart without the full consent of his mind, for if it be difficult to prove by human reasoning that there is a God, it is utterly impossible to prove that there is not.

Foundation Truth, Number 4 (Winter 2001) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2001 Sanctification
The Holy Spirit brings us to this—it is far beyond the capacity of man to enter into this rest on his own. We can resist and limit God.... Or we can allow the Holy Spirit to have His way and take us from the wilderness into this spiritual land of Canaan.
Foundation Truth, Number 5 (Spring/Summer 2001)

March 1, 2004

Foundation Truth, Number 5 (Spring/Summer 2001) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2001 Consecration
It takes time for God to teach you His voice and how to find the mind of the Lord. Look to Him now about the little decisions of life. Don't rush ahead with your own desires and wishes. Wait on Him. Pray for His direction.... He will prepare you if you let Him.
Foundation Truth, Number 6 (Spring 2002)

November 12, 2002

Foundation Truth, Number 6 (Spring 2002) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2002 Humility
Acknowledgment of truth is the first and vital step to getting help. This truth runs contrary to the philosophy of influence... the skill of easing people into a better condition. The way of the cross is the way of acknowledgment—it is a stark confrontation.

Foundation Truth, Number 7 (Autumn 2002) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2002 Sanctification
Making up your mind and setting your will, in themselves, are necessary to do the works of man; but, if you want to do the works of God, the work of God must be done in you first, in all its completeness.

Foundation Truth, Number 8 (Spring 2003) | Timeless Truths Publications, 2003 Church
God, in dealing with us, does not take away our humanity.... the work of God in the earth—His church overall and each member's individual walk with God—can be a perfect blend of the Divine and the human if we allow the Lord to have His way.

"Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy." Do you believe this? Do you really believe that God is able to keep you from falling and to present you faultless?

"There he comes again," said Annie. "He walks this way and seems to be looking for something. He walks slow, and is without his hat. He puts his hand to his head, as if he did not know what to do. Oh, sister, he has gone in again; what shall we do?"

Juan was impatient. "Coco, you must hurry or we will never get done," he said sharply. But the little burro only plodded. "Get off and walk, Lucita," Juan said. "You are probably too heavy for him when it is so steep." So Lucita walked behind, holding the red scarf tightly.

"I don't think you really want this kind of doll, Precious. Even though it's cheap, it's not worth the money." Self-pity tears filled Precious' eyes. "But Mama... I love her, I really do. I don't care if she's got a broken finger. And I have the money... she's on sale...."

Precious felt very pleased with herself when she had finished the sleeve. "I don't think I need Mother Matron's help at all.... It will be a surprise to show her how much I've done."... The fabric didn't meet at the edge, but a quick scissors snip took care of that.

God made the world and all that is in it for a reason. He made us on purpose. When I do something "on purpose," I have a plan and a reason to do it. God has a plan and a reason for us. He wants us to walk with Him and be with Him, just like Jesus was.
