IT IS WRITTEN …
Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Deuteronomy 8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.
THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH …

My husband and I come from families where no one knew The Lord. When we were both saved back in the late 1980’s we bought our relatives bibles, and we shared the gospel with them. We spoke to our parents, children, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, etc. You get the picture. I am sad to have to say that there has not been much fruit. The seed was sown, and we continue to pray daily for those who are still alive.
Over the years, never giving up hope, I continued to witness and pray for my mother. It was truly a “miracle of mercy” that my mom was indeed saved when she was in her 80’s. Jennie, my mom, went to be with The Lord in 2007. Redeemed, how I love to proclaim it! She was born on November 10, 2017. Today is the anniversary of her birthdate.
