Hello Stacy and Family: I have just learned of Beth's illness. Actually, I live in your neighborhood. I have put Beth on the prayer list at my church, Immanuel Baptist Church/Immanuel School of which Beth is a graduate. I saw Beth at Market Street, she looke wonderful and had a glorious attitude. I admire your marvelous courage in what you are experiencing. Your dogs got away from the girls tonite and they knocked on the door to apologize. We had a tree to fall on our house a week ago and i thought it was somebody out back going through the lumber to begin the repairs. You have raised them well and they are such sweet girls. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in this trying time. God is still in the miracle business and I still believe in miracles. I am praying for God to heal Beth. In Christian Love and Friendship, Jane Lee
Beth, Here is a blast from the past! Remember all the great times we had together at Mt. State, camping and those random times that the Hatfields would blow through Lexington and set up the RV in our driveway? Ahhh what wonderful memories of the Good Ol' days.
I am so sorry to hear about your condition. Be sure to know that I am praying for you and have put you on our church's prayer list as well. You have about a hundred people praying for you here in Kentucky. Know that God is Good...All the time. Blessings to you and your family.
Your childhood friend, Patti Blake Butler
P.S. I love the photos of you and your beautiful family. You look just like your mother at your age. So much so it's scary.
Stacy, Today's devotion in Mary Tileston's book, Daily Strength, is from Is.32.2: The shadow of a great rock in a weary land. and Is. 30.15, In returning and rest shall be your strength. What great hope for us in these few words! Christ is our Rock and as we REST in Him we receive His strength, which is ever so much better than the "pretend strength" the world offers-even our own spirits want to profess strength but we have none of our own. You know this so well. The first line in this daily devotion reads,"Strive to see God in all things without exception, and acquiesce in His will with absolute submission." I am praying this for you today. Only in Him, Kathy Strevel
Dear Beth, I received the email concerning your health from Paul and Judy Hatfield. I am sorry for your many issues and know that God will hold you in his hand and care for you as one of His loved ones. I will continue to hold you up in prayer. I am your Dad's cousin (our Mothers are sisters). Rest well today knowing that with God on your side, you have nothing to fear. Love, Ima Bess
Dear Stacy, It was with much sadness that I learned of Beth's condition; it is with much confidence in our great God and gentle Saviour that I keep you both (and the children) in my heart and prayers continually, expecting that He WILL accomplish His purposes and that this will indeed be for your good. A word from Mr. Spurgeon that has given me aid: Is.41:14 "I will help thee, saith the Lord."...Before the world began I chose thee.I made the covenant for thee. I laid aside My glory and became a man for thee; I gave up My life for thee; and if I did all this, I will surely help thee now...thow art nothing but a tiny insect at the door of My all-sufficiency, 'I will help thee.'O my soul, is this not enough?..Behold this river of God is full for thy supply..Go forth in this thy might. The Eternal God is thine helper!" "Fear not, I am with thee, oh, be not dismay'd! I, I am thy God, and will still give thee aid." Your family are in my thoughts in the dark of night and when I awake. In Him alone, sis. Kathy Strevel
Stacy and Beth, Amy and I want you both to know that we are praying for you guys and of course for your family. You are on a journey that God has set ahead just for you. Don't let the size of the circumstance overshadow your faith. Saul was a tall, broad, muscular king who shook in fear at the size of the giant...but David....little David wasn't concerned with reports from the field of battle. You see God prepared him, trained him for such a time. His spiritual eyes were stronger than his physical eyes. Beth be strong and courageous! Stacy be very strong and very courageous! I will try to get your contact info. Give us a hollar if you need us. 601-807-6466, my cell church # 662-328-1256.
Finally the truth!! Thank you for preaching what seems to be gone up here in the midwest. That is to correctly interpret the Word! Why people up here in this Arminian neck of the woods have an awful time with the Sovereignty of God is beyond us!! They chase you out of all the churches around here if you say that God is in control of everything and all. They accuse you of making God the author of sin. NOT!! We never said that, but they will accuse you of it everytime. Are there any 'Absoluters' around? Seems they live in the southern states :) Thank you again for a powerful message. May the Lord continue to bless you Pastor Herb.
Great Sermon! I THANK YOU BROTHER HERB FOR A POWERFUL SERMON ON THE SOVEREIGN WILL OF GOD. YOU SUPPORTED YOUR BELIEF WITH MANY FACTS FROM THE WORD OF GOD WHICH CAN NOT BE DISPUTED. WHAT AN AWESOME GOD WE SERVE. THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU.
God Honoring! God has never been taken by surprise.
All things are in the counsel of God.
Thank-You for being true to the Word of God in this message unlike many others who say they believe in the sovereignty of God.
Great Sermon! Thank you Brother Hatfield for a very good sermon. I thoroughly enjoyed and learned from this sermon. Larry Phillips recommended you to me to get solid teaching and since there are no true churches in this area, I have to rely on preachers such as yourslef and Larry to keep me grounded. God Bless You and Thank You.
A MUST LISTEN TO SERMON Herman:
Everyone should listen to this messgage. There is no greater comfort than for a poor weary laden soul to know and experience God's grace and mercy and the fact that He is Sovereign, Omnipotent and all wise. God Bless You !
