Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story sometimes be to late to ever finish. You folks remember old Job in the bible who the devil wanted to have a hold on and the lord allowed the devil to take Job and to what he wanted with him, and how old job endured to the end, the poor man lost everything , his son and daughter his cattle everything but his wife, and she told Job to cuss the lord and go ahead and die, and he called her a foolish woman, Jobs wife was a quitter, sure as your setting on them church benches, she was a quitter, How many folks do you know after they lost everything would continue on and have endurance, like old Job did,? Job never done anything to cause God to allow this to happen to him, I think this happen to Job so it would be passed down to us, in the holy Bible. So we conclude that God had a purpose for the chapter of the history of Job for us to read and preach unto this days that would come hereafter . Folks that endure will be secure .!!!. That it folks who will endure will most certainly be secure!! You folks here have showed me your not quitters, you have made me proud of you all,.. God leads men to good pastors , he molds men to good ways, and help man to live in this harsh environment , These old rocky ridges are hard to turn the ground for corn planting, the roots that spread wide on virgin grown makes for hard plowing, but that don't stop men with endurance backbones, I recall when old man collier shack caught a afire and burnt down about two summer back , and the poor old fellow lost all his clothes and belongings and how you all pitch in and built him a cabin better than the one that burnt up, and how the woman folks made him new clothes and all, now that is what God wants to see , folks working together , not for the glory of the name of doing it , but for one sake and that is for Godly earnest love for their neighbors.. I feel it is a honor to serve you mountain folks and to be the barer of the lord Holy word, for under the stars of these Muddy Fork mountain lives men who are strong and not the hot or the cold or the harsh or the wind will keep you all from enduring unto the end of your days on earth.. And I close Giving God the thanks to be a part of something so powerful and good as the fellowship of good honest hardworking saints that I have come to love and to know personally who will be with me in heaven on that great and noble day of the lord . Thanks for coming says the good pastor of Muddy Fork . Our little short preacher stands the shortest man in Muddy Fork county , but for me he is the tallest of all men I ever meet.... The end Tweet
