Inspired by; God
Welcome back to Spirit Ministries my friends. Hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! First, I would like to thank our God for all of the things that he has done in my life. I must let it be known that I give God all Glory for the gifts that he has blessed me with, I know they are to be shared, not to draw attention to myself, but to exalt the name Jesus Christ, God, and The Holy Spirit (Triune Being, Godhead three in one). I am merely a willing vessel that has been filled with joy unspeakable, God has given it that I might share it for his Glory and his Glory alone. So when you see me doing something, know that it is for God! And know that I am eager to give you the same joy unspeakable that God has given me. I would also like to thank all of you for your kind words, your encouragement, your prayers, and the support you have brought to my life. I thank God for all of you. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21 (KJV).
I would like to share with you some of the things that I have been doing lately. I am still employed at Fashions Inc. in Ottawa, KS. I have been truly blessed with this job. I know that the economy isn’t that great at this moment in time and only God knows if it will get any better. I know after going to prison for many years that it is even harder to attain gainful employment in this society. However, I chose not to believe that because my faith is deeply rooted and I know our God has final authority in all things, not man. So I am truly greatful for this opportunity. We have been working twelve hour shifts for some time now so I am asking all who read this to please pray for everyone that makes up Fashions Inc., Universal Design, and Steel Tech. along with their families. Thank you.
S.P.I.R.I.T Ministries was put on me two years before I ever left the penitentiary. It came to fruition in God’s time after my release and he continues to bless this Ministry. The Lord has put many good brothers and sisters in my path. Two in particular that I would like to bring to your attention are my good friends Jeff Wilken and Corey Moore. These two men are great examples of faith. They have been truly faithful in their service to the Lord. I met these men at Fashions Inc. 15 months ago and now they have been added to the Ministry. Every time the Lord calls me to do something they faithfully go to give their support and encouragement. I am so greatful, I thank God for placing these men in my life, and I would like to thank them for all they do. Corey is just a great example of someone who lives by the Word, and Jeff is a walking miracle who shares what God has done in his life and filled with joy unspeakable. God bless you two, and once again, thankyou. Indeed, I look forward to serving our God with you guys for as long as possible.
Since I have become involved with Helping Hands at the Wellsville Family Worship Center in Wellsville, KS not only has the Lord blessed me with many good friends, he has opened many doors not only for myself, but many others. It has been an awesome experience! When I was at Wellsville days to sing and speak I was invited to sing with their worship team as well. I know we have become an inspiration to one another and the fellas showed up at my group one Wednesday night and we had an awesome time. We played a lot of music and sang songs. Now these fellas were something else. I went to church and spoke to our pastor about them and I invited them to Community Foursquare to share their music. This took place last weekend and wow! I don’t even have the words to describe this by any means. I know God was in his house and he was smiling down upon us.
My neighbor, who is the grandmother to these fellas has suggested that we have a get together in the name of Jesus Christ in Richmond. I know I will share my music, my testimony, and I know the fellas from Wellsville will be present as well. What I am asking in God’s name is for everyone to pray about this. I know it is from the Lord and I know it will happen in his time. The prayers would be greatly appreciated! If you are interested and have some insight that you would like to share, contact me, Michael Teter at 785-418-7150.
In all things we do communication is imperative. It is how things become reality. I’m referring to our relationship with God. When God is first in our life he sees where our allegiance lies. Our relationship is not only personal, but it is intimate as well. The relationship we share with God is like a marriage. He is the bride and we are the groom. When we truly understand this, we share our inner most desires with him, we trust him, we confide in him. As Jesus Christ said, I will not put my confidense in man, for I know what truly lies in their heart; I entrust my life to God for he will never fail me nor forsake me. So I encourage you to pray about everything because you will be blessed. Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about eveything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7. NLT
If you proclaim Christ Jesus as your Lord and Savior, live it, embrace it whole heartedly. Keep an open line of communication with God in all things while you pray, open your heart, ask him for whatever it is you need and see just how faithful he is and you will discoveror that he is always faithful! God will not and can not break his promise, he gave us his WORD and his word is the TRUTH. I encourage you to stand on what you believe, and never sacrifice what you believe. You will bel blessed!
Father God I thankyou for your Son Jesus Christ who shed his blood on the cross for all of our sins. I come before you earnestly, humbly with a repentant heart asking you for your forgiveness. For I know you are the potter and I, your creation am merely a man you created for your enjoyment. Lord I pray that you continue to let your blessings rain down, shine your wonderful light upon, allow a provision, surround your warring angels around all of my Christian brothers and sisters, my brothers in the prison, all the people at Fashion’s Inc., Community Foursquare Church, Grace Community Church, and the Wellsville Family Worship Center, my group, the homeless, the hungry, those in need, all the children of the world, my parol officer, my family, and Spirit Ministries. I pray that you continue to lead and direct me by your Holy Spirit, encourage me, inspire me, provide me with your wisdom, give me strength, patience, perserverence, use my gifts for your glory, and provide a publisher for my book. I just thank you Lord. I pray in the name of your wonderful Son Jesus Christ, Amen!
I can do all thing through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13
