Hidden Wisdom Volume 55

Volume 55
This issue is now on its way to subscribers around the world! I just got back from taking the majority of the issues to the post office, and I'll be finishing up the last few within this coming week. Lord willing, subscribers will receive their copies by September 1.

A number of excellent articles were submitted for this issue. I've been challenged to take a bolder stand for the cause of Christ, and I trust these articles will inspire you in the same way.

Here's an outline of what this issue contains:

Theme: Standing Alone

From the Editress
~ By Abigail M. Paul ~
Lessons learned from the trial God placed in my life this summer.

Two pages of encouraging comments and feedback from readers, including two photos.

Wise Counsel
Have you ever struggled with loneliness, wondering if you'll ever find a true friend? Nearly five pages of excellent, Scripturally based answers to this problem are shared in this issue, and three more answers may be read online here.

Conform or Reform?
~ By Heather T. ~
Encouragement from one who has struggled with "different" from the rest of the world.

Persevering Under Temptations

Thoughts on being a good role model without being "self righteous."

Blessed are the Pure in Heart...
~ By Mrs. Gloria Y. ~
Lessons from the life of Daniel, who purposed to stand alone even in "little" areas like diet.

Standing in the Center
~ By Joel C. ~
A young reader shares what the Lord taught him through a time of standing alone.

You are Never Alone
~ By Amanda O. ~
Even when we feel that everyone is against us, God is still on our side!

...Still I will Follow
~ By April H. ~
A true testimony from the heart of a girl who struggled and yet made the right decision -- to stand alone for God's truth.

The Story of My Life, Chap. 50
~ By Abigail M. Paul ~
In this, the final installment of my autobiography (for a while, anyway), I tell about our adventures through the fall of 1992 -- a trip to Oklahoma, California visitors, repainting the house, and more! Includes diary excerpts and photos.

Together For Good
~ By Naomi H. ~
Don't miss chapter three of this insightful story of Abigail and Nabal, as seen through a servant's eyes. Sarah C.'s excellent illustrations again add much to the story.

The Bibliophile's Niche
Three books are recommended this time; check them out!

Life at Its Best

We all face times of uncertainty, when we're not sure where the Lord is leading. Jana shares her experiences here, and how God gives peace no matter where we are.

Tips for the Encourager
~ By Nicole H. ~
A selection of practical ideas on how to brighten others' days; includes an encouraging poem to share with someone going through a hard time plus 15 more practical ideas from subscriber Danielle R.

Subscriber's Corner
In this issue we get to meet Anna Kirk and her joyous family of nine. :-) Includes two photos.

The Fall Harvest
HW food editor Katherine N. has prepared a delicious selection of reader's favorite fall vegetable recipes. Enjoy!

Ten advertisements are included in this issue, ranging from magazines to penpals to free books. :-)

Discover the Treasures of God's Wisdom!
The daily Bible readings for September and October are found in Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, and Isaiah. The selections are brief enough that anyone can use them to help maintain a daily quiet time.

Online Resources
A selection of quotes and poems submitted for this theme didn't fit in the printed issue, so I've included them here. Check them out!

Standing for Christ
    Encouragement to stand alone for truth
I found several excellent articles on other websites that I thought you would be blessed by. Please keep in mind that I do not necessary agree with every point made in every article listed here (much less agree with other articles that are included on each of these websites!), but I have included each of these articles because they are thought-provoking and they motivated me to check out the Scriptures for my own. I pray you'll be motivated to do the same!
