Volume 41
I'm thankful to be getting this issue done a bit earlier than usual. Today is April 15, and though I haven't made the copies yet, the masters for Hidden Wisdom Vol. 41 (May-June 2001) are nearly finished! Lord willing we'll be able to make the copies next week, and then get them to each of the subscribers before the end of April.

I was blessed to receive a number of excellent articles on the subject of contentment for this issue. It's always so encouraging to read how others have gained victory in their lives through the Lord's strength! Contentment is a difficult area for many of us, and I found the insights that were shared to be a big encouragement: I'm sure you will, too.

Here's an outline of what this issue contains:

Theme: Contentment

  • From the Editress -- What are the benefits of meditating on God's Word? Here are practical steps to discovering treasures in the Bible.

Includes 3 photos of our family taken in early 1992.
  • A Price to Pay, Chapter 5, The Hospital -- This chapter of Jolea J.'s continuing story introduces us to Aaron's father, angry and bitter. What will he do about Aaron's injury? Will he ever come to Christ, like his son? Again, Cherish F. has prepared an excellent illustration to go with the chapter.
