About

me

I’m a retired insurance agent who lives on a farm in northeast Oklahoma. Since retirement, I spend the majority of my time in missionary work with Jews For Jesus. Most of my ministry is in New York City where I spend about a third of my time. I also volunteer my time to the Tulsa County Extension office as a Master Gardener for Oklahoma State University. I have been married for 43 years, and have 14 grandchildren and 3 great grand children..

At the age of 12 I trusted Jesus as my Messiah and Savior. The marvels of what He has done for me I will never get over. This blog will reflect mainly what is impressing me at the time. I will post a variety of things and topics, as well as thoughts, articles, photos, etc. as they make an impression on me. I hope you will enjoy the content. I invite you to ask any questions, or feel free to respond to anything that I have posted. I have no agenda but to share.

    Pleased you enjoyed my article on Nick, Golden, the Seahawks and the Super Bowl. Nick’s story is very inspiring and often Christians who are facing an unexpected death need to hear how a brother or sister handles the prognosis and dying; I know I did.

    One of my bucket list items is to be on a cattle ranch while calving. Here in Montana that is generally February or March. I read accounts about Montana calving and boy, what the ranchers go through if the weather is difficult! I have a great admiration with what they do and put up with.

    Keep blessing!

I reside about 40 miles outside of Tulsa and commute into town everyday for work. What a small world it is sometimes. Anyway, thanks again for following my blog and I’m in the process of checking yours out. BTW, I can relate to your “Boys will be boys” post. Been there and met my own father and his leather razor strop. I have to admit, as much as I hated that strop, it has made me the man I am today.

        I agree that reformed bloggers are few and far in between. You have a few “big name” bloggers, but your average joe, which I consider myself to be, are much harder to find. Of course, living in this area is kind of the same. Reformed church’s in NE Oklahoma are even harder to come buy than reformed bloggers!

          You are correct about reformed churches in our area. I attend the Bible Church Of Owasso which is a good church, the best around here anyway. They are all from MacArthurs seminary. I have really only been consistently writing a post a day since January I think. It’s been interesting and I’m discipling some by email which proves difficult but is working. I have spoken back and forth with SLIMJIM several times. It’s a neat experience and plan to continue Lord willing. Nice chatting with you Thom!!

    Hi Levi! Just a short note to thank you for following my “Randa Lane…” haiku blog. You and I are “sort of” neighbors as we live in Alvarado, Texas…just about 30 miles south of Fort Worth, where I was born and raised. Your site is sooo inspirational, infused as it is with your obvious great sense of humor! 🙂 I hope you will feel free to comment on my haiku…anytime! May the Father continue to bless you and keep you and give you peace!

    Hi Levi, thank you for following my blog, I really hope you enjoy my post. I find what I have read from your blog very inspiring. November 2012 I hospitalized for fluid on my right lung, after the surgery the surgeon told my husband that it was not fluid, but an infection, to make a long story short, I was given a 16% chance of recovering. Between my husband, children, doctors and many of my family and friend who have encouraged me and prayed for my recovery, I am a survivor, it took almost 2 years, but I am here, why, I believe. So thank you, for sharing a part of you with me.

    It of course lead me to your blog and I was happy to find you a kindred spirit in the coffee. One fine day if I happen to travel through your neck of the woods I would love to sit down and have coffee with you and share the journey !

    At this moment the concentration of my blog has been writing through the canticles of the Bible, and I am thinking in the next few months I will complete that journey and return to more general reflections and contemplations of the day… or whatever the Lord plants in my heart to write.

    Anyway.. thank you again.. I will return to read more of your blog as time permits..

        Thank you, hope yours as well is blessed. We had another murder in a neighbouring town last night. THIS is the wild west here … longing for peace. I am asking to favours from you. 1. Please say a prayer for positive change for this country. 2. Please say a prayer for those using Christ as a cover. (There’s a lot of that here.)

                  All kinds of groups. Some are very good and work wonders. But how many realistically would do this if they weren’t making money at it. And they are very good at spending other’s money, in the name of God of course.

                  I’m not the best Christian, but I am one. And I certainly don’t take advantage of others, nor manipulate, bla bla bla … but now I rant. Thanks for listening.

                  Me, ridiculously, I want to help the people. In two ways. Provide money for transportation to and from highschool so they have a shot at university. And … laughingly … build quality outhouses so they have more sanitary conditions. Hmmm, think I’ll do an outhouse pictorial blog … people need to see.

                  I think you should do a blog on the needs there. I was a missionary in Mexico City years ago so I know some of what you are speaking of. Maybe The Lord wants to use you in His work there. Keep your eyes on Him and don’t let the money grabbers get you discouraged. Their day will come. You can blow to me anytime you need too.

I may be contacting you with some questions re: my new garden (in my blog, I posted pics of flowers from my old garden in IL, but now that I moved to NY, I am experiencing the uncertainties of where to start. Clay soil, extensive root systems from abundant bushes, pest infestations, and rock mulch in the back are a few of my challenges.)

    I am looking forward to checking out your blog.

    Hi Levi–
    I’ve been having so much fun reading your comments. I also read about your son’s accident. Is he doing okay? I didn’t notice the date; sorry. I wanted you to know that I’m honored to have you follow my blog. This month I’m doing mostly poetry for NAPOWRIMO, but I’m also going to do one Holy Week post a day until Sunday. If you’re interested, I also have audio posts on my website’s blog (www.megvillanueva.com). I only am telling you because I can’t put them on WordPress–not enough space. I hope you have a meaningful Holy Week and a glorious Easter as well.

    By the way, another Calvinist here–a Calvinist Episcopalian, no less 😀

    Hey Levi, Your mention of being a Master Gardener has come back to my attention. Is this in relation to having a green thumb or something else? If botany it is, then I am in need of your gardening for dummies help. My son brought home a cabbage plant from school. I am not at all accustomed to that world. Even moreso than that is the fact that we have wildlife to consider – deer, groundhogs, squirrels, bunnies and birds (predators and prey) and…, you get the picture. Before this thing dies on me, what are the beginner’s steps to getting this thing in the ground and living/growing and PROTECTED? thanks much. If it’s too much to put here, feel free to e-mail me at inspirationallifemedia@gmail.com. Thanks again.

      Hello. I’m a master gardener because I’m an ag guy that lives in the country so I have interest in it. On the cabbage the main critter problem around here are cabbage worms. Sevin is best chemical for them. You can keep ahead of them is locating them and killing them if you don’t want to use chemicals. Hope this helps, have a great day!!!

    Dear Mr Levi,
    My name is Nitin and I don’t know if you remember me. I’m the 26 year old boy who argued with you over Calvinism. I was never an Arminian but I believed for a long time that anybody is welcome. So it was only because of passion that I lashed out against Calvinism in a bunch of satirical posts. Only passion for the world to be saved. I suffer from Bipolar Disorder and I led a duel life between a nihilist and a theist for a long time. Today God spoke to me. You are right sir. God doesn’t have to choose at all. Although a part of me still finds it arbitrary that he must choose like that if we believe God to be good and just he has a reason which he doesn’t have to reveal to us at all. He is Sovereign in all his ways. He has healed me of Bipolar Disorder and I’,m no longer on medication. I write for him on nitinlalit.com. Do check my poems out. And forgive me if I hurt you in any way
    Much Love,
    your brother in Christ,
    Nitin

      Good morning Nitin,
      I do remember you very much. Praise The Lord that He has healed you of being Bipolar. I hold no it will against you at. I followed you until only a few days ago when one of your posts was wanting to take on any Calvinist. The doctrine of God’s sovereignty is not an easy one to swallow, but if He isn’t sovereign then I can’t have faith in Him because I can alter His plans and He isn’t a very big God. I am thankful God changes the heart like in saving me, and anybody that calls upon His name, and in convicting you of your actions in this. I truly accept your apology and admire you for doing this.
      You didn’t hurt my feelings, but I don’t need to argue Scripture with anyone. This is the Spirit’s work.
      Your brother in Christ,
      Levi

        That’s not an award thing.
        It’s a tag, meaning you tell other bloggers which you love to follow or read their post , tell them you recognize and appreciate their work. Pass it on.
        Best wishes.

    Levi, thank you for stopping by my blog. I appreciate your interest. As I read about you, we have some things in common. Thought I don’t work with Jews for Jesus, I have a heart for God’s chosen people and the ones He will work through to bring His plan to completion. Also, I have a son who not lives in Tulsa Oklahoma. He moved his family there about three years ago. It’s very far away from my husband and me, and we don’t get to see them often. Wouldn’t it be interesting if the Lord let’s your paths cross sometime.

    The pleasure was mine,Peggy. You have a nice blog. I have had a calling specifically for Jewish people for 35 years or so. This is not to the exclusion of everyone else, not Jewish. In fact Jews For Jesus reaches more non-Jewish than Jewish by numbers. I live about 25 miles from Tulsa but am there a lot. You never know about your son and I crossing paths. I was at the Tulsa State Fair this week working with the Master Gardeners and spoke to hundreds of people. I met a niece to my wife’s aunt in a conversation that came up just by asking where I lived. It really is a very small world. Thanks for the comment and stopping by. Have a great weekend. 🙂

    Levi, I’ve been out of commission, struggling with a cold. I wanted to let you know that I switched my blog to http://www.fascinatedbyjesus.com. Reading your about, I realize you are a master gardener. I have been gardening these past few years, but am no master gardener. I learn so much about God and his love and his truths through gardening!

      Esther, I’m sorry you have been sick. I too was sick with the flu that I picked up from my granddaughter and it has taken me some time to get back to normal.

      Yes, I was trained as a Mater Gardener for the Oklahoma State Extension office in Tulsa. I enjoy gardening and educating people about gardening. You started following me I think since I have posted much of anything. For over a year I had 2 posts a day on my blog. One I would write and the other was a daily devotion by Charles Spurgeon. I haven’t really posted anything since some time in Dec.

      I don’t know if you know but I am a Jewish man that has believed in Jesus for 50 years now. I am also a missionary to Jewish people with Jews For Jesus. I spend about a 1/3 of the year working out of our Manhattan branch. I fly into NY every month. I also travel a lot during the summer to work in our campaigns around the world. I will work in Paris the month of June, Toronto and NY in July, and Israel in August. Because of all else I am doing I haven’t had time to blog.

      I enjoy your posts and will go to your new site. Sharpen and clean up your tools as Spring is just around the corner. Feel better and shalom.

      Levi

    I keep forgetting to mention, Levi. There is a beautiful movie called “Amazing Grace” about William Wilburforce’s struggle against the British slave trade. It features John Newton, who was Wilbur’s pastor and mentor. I think you might enjoy it. Blessings, A.

      Oh, thank you so much, Cynthia. As you know I haven’t been on WP for months. I’ve been so busy doing one on one work which I love so much. I’ve been down since Thanksgiving but am now much better. My appendix burst and I had to have surgery, and to make it worse,I came down with shingles. But as I said, I’m almost well now. I wish you and your family a very blessed Christmas. I hope you are well!!!!
