 Why do we need the Bible? It is just a book. It has thousands of pages. It is sometimes hard to read.  Why bother?

I thought that many years ago. As a matter of fact my grandmother gave me a beautiful Bible. However, I never read it much because I was afraid I was going to tear the pages, and soil it.

I’m sure that is not what my grandmother had in mind at all. She probably wanted to it look worn, and have many dog ears in it.

I have learned that the Bible is full of living water. The words flow out like a river of love that refreshes us each day. It give us the armor we need to survive as Christians.

Unlike some people who have put their Bible up in the attic, which only give the rats some paper for their nest, we should read the Bible every day.

I realize this sounds a little harsh, but I was guilty of doing that with my grandmother’s Bible she gave me.

I don’t have anymore excuses. I know how important the Bible is for our daily plans in life.

What about you? Do you know where your Bible is? Do you read it often?

The Words from the Bible should be “music to our ears,” and give us hope in a not so friendly world.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

When the darkness comes from life’s heavy burdens what do you do? Some go into deep depression. Others stay strong and always see the bright side of everything.

I have been in deep depression, but now I know everything is for the good of those who believe.

That verse in the bible is hard for some who wonder, “If that is true, what good did I receive from my loved one’s death?

Well, a little further in that same verse, it says for those who believe. That means belief in God.

When we believe, we also learn to trust God. We learn from our storms and trials. Sometimes we need to be put to the fire of life, to fine tune us like a sword has to be put to the fire to sharpen and shape to its maximum  potential.

I am now looking at everything on the bright side. I have learned that God has a plan. I have learned that He loves me, and will help calm the storms in my life.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all….never, ever, give up!

I have a podcast here that I did with John Kremer, the marketing guru. He invited me to share unusual places to sell books. Take a listen and hit those streets running: goo.gl/WGTF7

I saw a report that eBooks are starting to slow down in sales. They reached their peak and have leveled off. What does this mean?

It means that, if you have a truly good book, it doesn’t matter what the trends are. Your book will sell in any market at any time if it is well done, wins awards,  and has good reviews.

My book, “Signs of Hope: ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World,” recently won an award from Reader’s Favorite Awards. It also has received several five star reviews.

This has helped it keep good sales going.

Never feel that trends are what controls the industry. Good writing, and promotion controls the industry.

I went to a friend’s house last night to see some slides he had taken while he visited Israel. I thought, ” Oh boy, here is another of those boring slide shows put on by an amateur.”

I was very wrong. Don Phillips had a wonderful presentation filled with fascinating stores of his trip. He was very emotional the whole time while showing the slides. He kept saying things like, ” This is where Jesus prayed and sweat blood. This is where Peter denied knowing Jesus. This is where they think Jesus was buried. This is the Mount of Olives, where Jesus will come down to someday.”

As he went through the slides, I too got emotional. I decided that I had to go to Israel myself some day. I added it to my “bucket list.”

With Israel being attack by the Hamas, and many other countries in the Middle East trying to destroy it, the end times doesn’t seem to much like a fairy tale anymore. For those who are skeptics, the writing is on the wall.

I have read the end of the book (Bible) and God wins!

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
