God's Love Removes All Fear!
1 John 4:11-21
for the Halloween Season
As Christians, we can enjoy every day free
from fear of any type. Halloween seems harmless, but it can create unnecessary fear in young hearts. God is not the source
of fear (1 Timothy 1:7). Satan is the source of all evil in the world, but Jesus conquered him for us! When we know and believe
that God loves us, we never have to be afraid!
Boris Kitty Stories
Halloween Doesn't Have To
Black Cats Aren't Scary - Halloween is a holiday that many people view as harmless fun.
But Boris learns that it also promotes prejudice and hatred of black cats. Determined to do something about it, God tells
him the secret to defeating hate.
If Fear Is The Problem, God's
Love Is The Answer!
The Terribly Scary Storm - Fear is a tool of Satan. It robs believers of their faith in
God. It is also a sin that needs to be defeated. Boris learns a valuable lesson about fear when he faces a scary thunderstorm.
With God's help, he is always victorious.
God Makes Everyday, Even
God Made Today - Sometimes the cares of the world make
us forget that God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. We should be thankful every day for His love and concern. That
is the message that Boris shares with his friends in this story. We should enjoy every day, because God makes each one.
Don't Let The Devil Steal
Devil Got Your Tongue - Throughout the Bible we are taught to speak in agreement with
God’s Word. In this story, Boris learns that when he talks of failure and defeat, he will get exactly that. But when
he speaks in agreement with God’s Word, there is nothing he can’t do.
OLD TESTAMENT BIBLE STORIES
God's Love Protects!
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego & The Fiery Furnace - A Bible story from Daniel 3:1-30. Three
young men refuse to sin, and by doing so, defy the most powerful ruler in the world, a crime worthy of a fiery death. When
they put their trust in God, there is nothing to fear.
God's Love Defeats the Enemy!
David and Goliath & Some Giant-slaying Faith - A Bible story from 1 Samuel. A young shepherd boy faces a 10-foot tall warrior and proves to his
countrymen that God was still willing to fight on the side of those that put their complete trust in Him.
God's Love Overcomes All Obstacles!
Joshua and the Crumbling, Tumbling Walls of Jericho - A Bible story from Joshua 1-6. God gives Joshua a most peculiar plan for
defeating Jericho. Seven days later and there was nobody doubting God's plan.
God's Love Never Fails!
Jumpin' Jehoshaphat - Praise Works! - A Bible story from 2 Chronicles 20:1-30. When 3 armies invade Judah, King Jehoshaphat knew that
God would protect his country. He marched the army out to face the enemy led by a choir singing praises to God. But there
would be no battle that day. God had already given them the victory!

-- Reader Comments About Matney Woodard Stories
Heaven's Art Gallery - A Christian short story about transforming life into a masterpiece
worthy of display in Heaven's Art Gallery.
"My wonderful senior friends were awed and silent! No one spoke for a few moments and I was
almost moved to tears reading it ("Heaven's Art Gallery") again. I looked and they too were misty-eyed. It is a powerful
and moving story and moves us to such personal questioning of where we are in our journey with our Lord
. Finally they
all agreed, it was a powerful message
First Presbyterian Church, Pasadena, Texas
"I wish to express how the
short story of "Heaven's Art Gallery" has touched many hearts from Lighthouse Christian Center, a school with about 50 students
and homeschoolers. One of the students, my son, Joel Andrus a senior, used this story at a chapel service. I don't think there
was a dry eye anywhere.
Thank you, for I believe it touched my son's life and others in such a positive way for
now and eternity."
