ABASED AND ABOUNDING
excerpts from "How To get a Mate and Keep'em"
RUTH KEEPER AT HOME
Husband Les called to sell business
Come home to pray and be in God’s Word
Les believed: Owe no Man
Les believed: Don’t ask anyone for money.
Would God provide?
RAN OUT OF MONEY
No car for a year
Best year in Bible Study
Never asked for a ride
Never said “I need a car”
Went every place we wanted to go.
Couldn’t buy rich food.
HOW GOD PROVIDES?
Ruth cleans wheat and grinds it in coffee grinder
Prays until mid afternoon
Cooks wheat, add: Applesauce
Made from church Apple tree
Black Walnuts from our trees.
STOVE TOP BISCUITS
From her ground wheat
To go with pots of thick healthy soup.
Shared our meals twice a week with others.
FOUND TOMATOES IN DUMPSTER
Made canned Spaghetti and Mexican sauce
Also Indian curry.
OUR PROSPER PRAYER PAGE
Provided, we were more thankful than ever.
Not buy white flour or sugar
Only buy healthy
Ruth has more energy and strength
That would help her
For the many years of ministry ahead.
BIG TEST – LES HEART ATTACK
Much pain, weak
Could hardly talk.
No money to call a Doctor or ambulance.
Les refused to owe money or ask.
RUTH “WHAT TO DO?”
Spirit of God comes on Ruth
She jumps on him and at the top of her voice,
“You spirit of death, come out of him now!”
With that the severe pain leaves - still weak.
Ruth hears Les yell “Ruth”?
She runs into the living room,
He jumps off the sofa, pounding on his chest,
“I’ve been healed!”
Helped neighbor pour cement next day.
He would live 14 more years.
SON BRINGING GIRL HOME FOR CHRISTMAS
No good food to feed her
People come to visit,
Want prayer, painful swelling around ribs
Les puts hand on rib, as he prays,
Swelling goes down under his hand
The man is healed.
MAN GOES TO HIS CAR
Brings in sack of frozen meat.
Three turkeys come
Other food, the fridge fills.
Enough to feed the girl and
Eat for a number of weeks.
WHEN GOD CALLS US TO DO SOMETHING
We will have trials and testings,
But as you pass these tests,
He will trust you with bigger tests.
As you trust him to look after you.
