  1. Hi Y’all-
    here are some verses that i think especially important with everything thing that going on in the world right now.

    Isaiah 40:8 The grass may wither and the flowers may fade but the Word Of OUR LORD STANDS FOREVER.

    Psalm 121:6-7 The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. HE WILL WATCH OVER YOUR LIFE.

  2. @Agentx14. We’re are you?

    @Countrygirl. Yes

    @ Texas Cowboy. Thanks for the encouraging verses, keep it up.

    @ Ed. I did not know that!

  3. Bible Verse of the Day

    The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandments of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. – Psalm 19:8

    1. The agency is just a fun way to learn more about God. There are occasionally missions for projects you can do at home or trivia games. There are always bible verses and good discussion about numerous things and we try to get a lesson (a short devotional) out weekly, though it doesn’t always happen. If you’d like to get more involved, let us know!

    1. Aq: I think all the podcasts are comment-able… just the old comments probably got deleted when they re-vamped the site. (By the way, this is Whit Fan #1, I just changed my name.)

      1. Hey there! I don’t know if all the podcasts are commendable, because I checked the writers page and could find the “Leave a Reply” thing. If it’s true that we can’t comment on older podcasts, I’m sad.

  4. AgentX10: Okay, well… this kinda messes things up. Do we want to find another one or just do the schedule on here from now on? Also let me know, I had given you this week, but is this too short notice now? I write something quickly if you want me too.

  5. AgentX10: Ugh… I think I forgot to label that one as me. Sorry. This new website, while lovely, keeps throwing me off.

  6. Verse of the day: I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
    John 15:5

  7. Jell-O: Hello! Yes, hopefully we’ll get this running smoothly again soon. Have you found a new place for the Wingfeather Page?

    1. Not yet! We might wait and use the current main podcast page after a few more podcasts have showed up on the conversation moves on from there.
      (Hey, this replying to comments thing is pretty great!!)

    1. Part 1: It matters who Jesus is for the same reason it matters what we think about God and the Holy Spirit. Our outlook of God immediately has more far-reaching ramifications than anything else in the world and your beliefs. What you think of God will quickly color how you think of everything else – especially how you determine right & wrong,

  8. Hello people, so now do I join this agency thing, do I just chat here too, or do I read stuff here or what? Please clarify

    1. @Person The Agency was started a few years by Agentx14 and I. The point is it’s a way to serve God . It’s a place were kids can share favorite Bible verses, devotions are held each week. It’s a place wear people can share prayer requests and open up the hearts for concerns and worries with people there own age. Welcome to the Agency.

      1. Thanks for the info, and thanks for the welcome, I check all the podcasts regularly so, I will be watching, dun dun daaaa!

      2. This is my favorite verse:
        Col. 3:16
        Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with all gratitude in your hearts.

        It points to Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and God the Father.

  9. Verse of the day: There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
    Galatians 3:28

    (Part 1)
    Recently I was watching a seminar from one of Hillsong’s conferences. Joel Houston was speaking and he said a story that really struck me.
    He spoke about a defect he had as a child that caused his chest to cave inwards, but then how as an adult he discovered a surgery that was developing for this very issue.

  11. (Part 2)
    He went to the doctor, who told him that unfortunately he could only do it to children, because adults’ bones are too hardened. Defeated, Joel began to leave, but the doctor stopped him. He had noticed something. Turns out that Joel had another rare condition.

    One that caused his bones not to harden.

  12. (Part 3)
    Anyhow they were able to do the surgery but something went wrong. Joel said he woke up and there was the worst pain in his life coursing through his body and he just wanted to die. They told him they would have to go in again. All he wanted to do was die.

  13. (Part 4)
    Recently, Joel went through a very painful time emotionally. He was extremely depressed for nearly a year. But the cool thing is, God used that time to purge him. He used it to bring out some incredible character and some incredible music and he also used it to remove the things in his life that were hindering those things.

  14. (Part 5)
    And that surgery? When they went in the second time, they found a cyst. It would have grown into a cancerous tumor, but they were able to remove it very quickly. Had they not had to go in the second time, they would never have found it until it was too late.

  15. Part 7
    Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
    The point is simple. We all go through those in-between places. In a way we never get out the in-between places. But sometimes the pain blinds us and we don’t see what God is doing.

  16. Part 8
    Being stretched is painful, but if we lean in and trust, God will work it out for good.

    And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

    Hold on to His promises. He’s gonna work it all out.


  17. I don’t know if this comment will go through. I don’t have email. What do I put in the website section? Sorry if this is confusing.

    1. Your comments will still go throughs if you don’t have/put in your email, and you don’t have to put anything in the website part, unless you want to put I your website adress. (if you have one.)

  18. Verse of the day: Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
    James 1:27

  19. Part 2: what you think of how you fit into the world, and what your priorities are. That in turn will surely determine what your actions are.

  20. Agentx10, could you please try posting lesson again? It didn’t all go through. It sounds really interesting!
    @ Everyone, next week I am helping with our church day camp. Please pray that all the kids will be impacted by the gospel. And that us staff will do good job explaining gospel in a clear way. Thank you!

  21. Hey guys! I just started horse back riding lessons, they are sooooo much fun! There are these kids that are being mean to me, and I don’t know what to do. Please Help Me!!!

    1. Madison I’m sorry some kids are being mean to you I know what’s its like from both sides ( I used to be a bully myself but um yeah that’s a another story😥) any who I know this is going to sound crazy but be nice to them ya know try not to get mad or upset by what they say or do because that’s what they want you to do get mad. like if they say your outfit is ugly just say well I like it and that’s all that matters in a nice way though. and if you bring shacks with you ask them if they would like one. and remember sometimes kids act mean because inside they are hurting and making someone else hurt makes them feel better ( sounds weird but its true) just think about what Jesus would do. I hope this helps!💖 ill be praying too😃

    2. Hi Madison I’m sorry some kids are being mean to you I know how that is from both sides ( I used to be a bully myself😩 😶) but anywho this is gonna sound crazy but be kind to them ya know. Don’t let them make you mad or upset because that’s what they want you to do.

    3. Like if they say your outfit is ugly just say well people have different opinions. Just think about what Jesus would do. And if you bring shacks with you offer them some . And remember some kids like to be mean because they are hurting in some way and making others hurt makes them feel better a little bit( it sounds weird but it’s true)

  22. Madison: I’m sorry! I’ll be praying for you. I know how that is.

    On the other hand, I absolutely love horses! We have a lot on our little farm plus a donkey and her baby! What have you been learning at your lessons?

  23. hi y’all okay i haven’t been on here in a while, but i thought i would stop by with some encouraging words for y’all.

    1. sometimes God lets you hit rock bottom you will
    discover that HE is YOUR ROCK at the BOTTOM.

    2. Always remember that with the Lord you can:
    start over.
    start late.
    be unsure.
    act different
    try and fail.
    and still succeed!

    1. Texas Cowboy, definitely true! I hear people say “God wont give you more than you can handle” but I think He does so we rely fully on Him. I love that we can always know God is our Rock and Stronghold.
      Its nice to see you on here!

      1. me too! another thing i’m really glad is that Jesus never said’s” Now this is the last time i put you back to together”

        Texas cowboy.

        1. Yes I’m so thankful God will help put us together as many times as we need it 💖😭”i’m crying happy tears” because if He didn’t there is no telling were I would be! I praise you God for saving me and putting me back together!💟😶😆

  24. Madison, how are you? I will be praying for you!
    Everyone, my week of helping at camp went great! Some unexpected things happened but it was still great!

  26. Hi! Two prayer requests:
    1. My mom has thyroid disease, and she is under a lot of stress right now and that is making it worse.
    2. I am going through a thing with my friends where sometimes they act like friends and sometimes they act aloof and distant. One friend in particular is hard to read and kind of withdrawn. I don’t know how to act with her

    1. I will pray for you Jell-o and for your mom !🙏💖 and remember that if your friends betray you or are distant there is a friend that will never leave you or forsake you and that friend is Jesus!😄💗 and I’m so happy/very thankful that God will never leave us ! Ps. I used to have a friend like that too like 2 years ago

  27. I will pray for your cousin pennybassett 💗💞 by the way how is your uncle ? Does he still have covid really bad? ( I really need to make a prayer list!😯)

  36. hi y’all had a min and thought i would stop by with this word for y’all:)

    Just as a cowboy needs his boots in order to do his job to the best
    of his abilities, we as Christians need God’s words in our hearts to do
    our job to the best of our abilities.

    ~Texas cowboy~

      1. Bunny hope, aw thanks:) heres one more Texas cowboy quote
        I know that He tells me to be glad when trials come to me, but instead
        i always question if you love me at all, but i know you know me Jesus . Jesus
        i know you listen to my cry, so Father i’m running to You tonight, cause
        i need your help, cause i can’t fight this battle on my own. TBC

            I know You hear this prodigal’s cry
            Father run to me tonight. cause i don’t

  40. For some encouragement:
    ●You are fearfully and wonderfully made!(see Psalm 139:14)
    ●You are a child of God!(see Gal. 3:26)
    ●You are Gods masterpiece!(see Eph.2:10)
    ●God’s hand is always on you!(see Psalm 139:5)
    ●As a child of God, Your a special Treasure!(see Exodus 19:5)
    ●God loves you with Unfailing love!(see Jer. 31:3

  41. ● You are chosen By God! (see Thess. 1:4)
    ●You can over come any obstacle blocking your way,
    even temptation, through Christ!(see Rom. 8:37-39
    ●Don’t strive to be live someone else. Be who God created you
    to be. Be You!
    ● who said normal is the goal? if your always trying to be normal,
    you’ll never know how amazing you can be!

    Texas cowboy

    1. Like always Texas cowboy this was great !😆💖and yeah if you always act normal than yeah you won’t know how awesome you can be or crazy !😂dont act normal act like you!😋😂

      1. Bunny hope, awww thanks::) actually the who said normal is the goal wasn’t my own quote i got it from the book know who your are(subtitle: live like it matters) by Tim Tebow:)

    2. Texas Cowboy, I love all of these. Especially the last two. It always feels people want to fit in, so they change their uniqueness.

      1. Yeah I feel like I need to fit in sometimes because I don’t act or enjoy a lot of things, like girls my own age do. But like I say, why fit in when you can stand out!😋😆

  42. I like Tobymac too! I really like the song edge of my seat and the song everything!😋and backseat driver that one is really fun/ funny to me

  43. Guys, my brother got baptized today, before I was the only one of siblings that had been, but not now! I’m SO happy for him!

  44. ps if y’all want you can call me Timmy, i’m sure that some of y’all have been wondering what my name is, so i thought i’ve been on here a while, and i thought, that i would tell y’all:”)
    you don’t have to call me Timmy, but i would like it if y’all did:)

    thanks Timmy/Texas cowboy

  45. okay for some encouragement:)
    You+ Jesus can= miracles!

    okay so its really short but thats all i had time to do today:)
    ~Timmy/Texas cowboy~

  46. sorry, the last comment is from me. My little brother was sitting with me and hit enter on my username before I finished typing it:)

  47. your name is Timmy, Texas cowboy! I like your name 😊ill try to call you Timmy from now on but it’s kinda confusing now because it’s like you have two names now 😛 Texas cowboy and your real name Timmy! I would tell everyone my real name but I rather not,but my middle name is hope! That’s why I’m bunny hope!😊 and I just like bunnies😋

    1. Hope(is it okay if i call you that?) ya i know:) its weird seeing my name on here, i see a comment to Timmy and i’m like oh whos that? then i’m like oh ya thats you! you’re not Texas cowboy and more:)(lol)
      Timmy/Texas cowboy

  48. Does anyone celebrate the biblical feast (Rosh Hashanah, Sukkoth, exc.)? My family is learning about them. We did some minimal things special for Rosh Hashanah bc it was our first time. A family at church is also starting to learn about the feast. My parents Are going to celebrate Sukkoth with them. I was thinking maybe y’all knew about them too.

    1. i have heard\read about sukkoth and the other feasts as well i think 🙂 that’s cool that your family are celebrating them!😄 my family doesn’t celebrate them but i think we did it for school one time… maybe i don’t really remember 😂

  49. for some encouragement:

    We often depend on others to pay for what we can’t. While we are growing up, who puts the food on the table?
    who pays the taxes? who pays for repairs on your house? Jesus paid for more than that. His gift took care of every mistake, you ever made and will make. now thats love. thats a gift worth receiving.

    ~Timmy ~

  50. Hey guys so i won’t be on here for about a mouth. but after that i should be on here more:)
    anyway just thought i would tell y’all:)
    bye for now
    ~Timmy/Texas cowboy ~

  51. can you guys please pray for me i keep getting these bumps ( i guess that’s what you call them) in my mouth and they hurt pretty bad 🙁 and they rub on my braces which makes it worse!😞 also my best friends mom tested positive for covid can you pray that she will get better. Thanks💕 ~ Hope

  52. Hay guys, i’m at the ranch sales/auction and i had a min. before i have to go show some people the horses that we have for sale, so i thought i would stop by and share a word of encouragement for y’all:

    Faith tells me that no matter what lies ahead God is already there.

    don’t just be a leader, be a servant leader. Severe and lead.

  53. For some encouragement:

    ● It takes courage to live a BOLD passionate life for Christ in todays world.
    ● Christ provides us with supernatural power, right when we need it the most!

    i know this was short, but that’s all i have time to do today:)
    Timmy/Texas cowboy

  54. Hey y’all, whats up? sorry i haven’t been on, we’ve been getting our cattle ready to go to the market, and weaning our calves, and fixing/putting up fence:)

    ~Timmy/ Texas cowboy

    1. Timmy, sounds like your busy! I don’t know why people haven’t been commenting much on this post recently. I really liked your post about how it takes courage to be a Christian today. It certainly does!
      My family is just busy with school, and some home projects.

      1. Yeah Timmy your posts are great and I agree with county girl it takes a lot of courage and faith to be a Christian today, but we just need to know that God is always in control no matter what happens and that this world is not our home for christians our home is heaven! So we need to be strong and run the race until it is finished even if it seems no one else is going down the narrow path, we need to keep heart and keep going!😊 John 16:33 Philippians 3:13-14

  55. A few days ago my little sister and I were laying in bed and we couldn’t fall asleep. All the sudden she started reciting poems and verses! It was so nice. That day I sprained one of my toes.

  56. I have a prayer request,

    Please pray for a man that is friends with my dad, he has a tumer in his thymus and he doesn’t have a good doctor. Please pray.

  57. I will pray for your dad’s friend chief😉💞. And sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve been on here I have been doing school and stuff and I kept checking on here and not that many people said anything so I thought this page was dying so that’s why I never put anything on here for awhile! 😛
