Bible Verse of the Week  

But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.   John 3:21


Quote of the Week

This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it. 

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


I am God.  Today I will be handling all of your problems. 

Please remember that I do not need your help.

If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do not attempt to resolve it. 

Kindly put it in the SFGTD (something for God to do) box. 

All situations will be resolved, but in My time, not yours.

Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it by worrying about it. Holding onto it will delay the resolution of your problem.

Instead, focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life now.

Because I do not sleep or slumber, there is no need for you to lose any sleep. Rest, my child.

If you need to contact me, I am only a prayer away.

We hope this website is helpful for you, and we hope Harvest House can meet your needs.



The seed was planted when Gary Tatu saw a picture of the church in a real estate listing book. A few days later the seed was cultivated at a John Michael Talbot concert where all night the messages of, "Sell all you have, give to the poor and follow Me," and "Peter, do you love Me? Feed My sheep" seemed directed specifically at them. Gary and his wife Linda left the concert and drove by the church. After months of research, prayer and seeing God's loving hand directing them, they sold their home in the suburbs and, on April 12, 1993, purchased the derelict city church which is now Harvest House.
