It has been a few days since I last posted. I have been busy with my blog at: www.dailysignsofhope.com. It has been growing so fast that we are ranked # 2 out of 6.1 similar sites according to the Google Search Rankings. We are averaging about 15 new RSS feed subscribers a day.
I would love to start that kind of action here as well. Please take a couple of minutes and sign-up for the RSS feed here. It really helps this site move up in the rankings.
I have some exciting news! I just had a trailer made for my book, “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World.” I received an email yesterday with the final draft in it, and I approved it. They said it would be 3-4 days before it hits YouTube, and the other video outlets on the web. I will be having it as a regular feature on this site when it comes out.
I am very impressed with the quality of it, and I hope you will too. Keep checking back to see when it comes out.
Often times when we pray we are doing in a noisy, or busy place. It is very difficult to concentrate when that is happening. Look at it this way:
Imagine you are at a party with a friend and you are trying to talk to them. There is a lot of noise, and clamor. You are trying to whisper what you want to say in the other person’s ear.
The one listening will not be able to hear what you are saying. That could be what happens when we are in a crowded and noisy area when we are praying to God. We can’t concentrate, and will not be able to get across what we really are trying to say.
We need to find a quiet place when we “talk” to God. We need to be able to concentrate on what we are saying, and who we are talking to.
God says, “Be still and know that I am God.” He is telling us that He is our God, and we need to quietly follow Him, and be connected through prayer.
The next time you pray, think about the quality of how you are praying. Think like God is sitting right next to you in a chair carrying on a conversation with you. Then share your hurts, and thoughts about others you are concerned about. It will bring the level of your prayers to a new high, and you will feel much closer to God.
Just a reminder that the book, “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World,” is on sale right here on this site. All you need to do is click on the “Bookstore,” tab at the top of this page. You will find a description of the book and a copy of the cover.
The book is on a special price. It is selling for $19.99 in the retail stores, but if you order on from here, it is only $15.99. The shipping is cut in half as well. A total savings of over $6.00.
Did you realize that it is less than 90 days until Christmas. Time to start thinking of that.
Never, ever, give up!
