Beauty for Ashes

August 20, 2007

I Have Chosen You Over the years, there were times when God directed Richard Forrest to accept a student that other colleges may have turned down. Such was the case with George Akins, a man who hitchhiked from Savannah, Georgia, to Toccoa Falls. He came without any formal recommendation, except a short note from a […]

Trusting God One of the principles the Forrests had to learn early and quickly was the principle of trusting God for great things. Think about it: if you trust the Lord for small things, more than like that is exactly what you will receive—the bare minimal, and enough to get by. But if we trust […]

God’s Assignments When Dr. Forrest began to recognize the need for a school to prepare young men and women to serve God, he expected God to raise someone else up for the task and was even praying to that end. But, as we read the history of events in Achieving the Impossible with God, God […]

Songs in the Night MUSIC IS UNIQUELY revealed in every culture to demonstrate a wide range of emotions; to promote comfort, healing, and relaxation. Music also played a major role in the lives and cultures of many Biblical characters such as Job, David, Paul, and Silas who exemplified joy in adversity by songs of praise […]
