Not Happy With the Job You have?

Thank you to all of you who have been subscribing to this site. It has grown from 800 subscribers to over 2,200 in just a few months. Our goal was to reach 2,000 by the end of the year. You blew that goal out of the water. We have to adjust our sights to a higher goal. Let’s see if we can reach 2,400 by December 31st. We are now at 2,376 so we are getting close. We still have 31 days to go.  It would be awesome if we can make it. .

You can help us reach that goal by subscribing today if you haven’t already. Just click on the icon right after the title to this post to do that.

I have been working very hard on my new book, “Signs of Hope: For the Military. I feel that it will help many soldiers and their families. The appendix for this book will have one of the most complete lists available for finding help in any area a person may be searching for pertaining to the military.

Be looking for updates on the book and other news at this site, or at http://www.dailysignsofhope.com.

It sometimes seems hard to trudge to work each day. Some jobs are not all that fun to go to. I was a very lucky man and worked as a teacher. The rewards were much brighter than the dark days of winter when I had to drive to work in the snow.

I did have those days when I wondered if I really wanted to get up and go to work. Then I would see a garbage man loading up someone’s garbage on a very raining day and the wind was blowing.

Sure I was going to a school where there are kids yelling and needing control, but to be out in the cold and shivering in a job that not many people would want to have made me glad to see the kids coming into my class. Besides, they always warmed me up with their smiling faces.

Do you have a kind of job that you wish you didn’t have? Do you drag yourself out of bed and force yourself to get ready? You aren’t alone. There are millions of people just like you. Off to work. Work hard all day. Come home, too tired to do anything but eat dinner and go to bed. Sound familiar?

God uses people in what ever job they may have. He doesn’t care if you dig ditches, or are a CEO for a huge business. He uses the meek, poor, rich, ordinary people of this earth.

What ever your lot is on life, God can use you. He will guide you to do far more wonderful things than you could ever imagine, if you just let Him.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Exciting news! We have a new book on the way that I am writing with Dennis Booth, from New South Wales, Australia. It will be called, “Signs of Hope: For the Weak Days.” (Working Title.) It is a compiling of posts that Dennis and I have been doing on my blog at: www.dailysignsofhope.com. There are 0ver 54,000 followers on that site, and it is because so many people are seeking hope and it is provided there.

*Update: 1-1-14. I have have over one half of my share of the book done. We still don’t have a publishing date yet, but stay tuned to see what is happening. I will try to have an update often.

I am finding more time to write on this site lately. It could be because God is telling me I need to spend ore time with you here.

This Site will have two functions:

  • Share with you what the latest news is on my writing, and new books that are coming out.
  • Write words of hope at the end of each of my post that you can cling to help you through those cloudy and stormy days.

I haven’t had much time to write the last two weeks because of the holidays. I did spend time reflecting over the year 2013.

It wasn’t a year that some would want to remember. I had a couple surgeries; an ablation on my heart, and a cardio version on my heart, and nothing seems to be helping right now. I see my cardiologist this Friday and we will come up with a new route to take.

I know…other than that how is your day?

My day is wonderful. I have such a supportive group of family and friends to help me through this storm.

I have slightly altered my plans for writing this year. I am still planning to finish my new book “Signs of Hope: For the Weak Days.” I am writing this book with my good friend Dennis Booth in New South Wales, Australia. We are working hard on it , and it will come out some time this year.

Where I am changing my path will be for the next book after this one. I was going to write a book for seniors called, “Signs of Hope for Seniors: The Alligators that Chase Us.” I am still going to write that book, but God has opened my heart and mind to reaching out to the millions of military soldiers, and veterans of this world.

The suicide rate in the military and the after life of the military is appalling. The rate is much higher than any other “Cooperation,” in the world.

I have been in the trenches. I am a veteran. I know about the loneliness. I know about the fear. I know about facing the unknown. I have sat on top of an isolated hill in Korea, alone wondering what the noises were I was hearing; wondering if someone was there to take my life from me.

This book could a very  important book for millions of people affected by the military.

I will update you on its progress, after my second book is published.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

It has been a while since I last posted. I had surgery on my neck to take out a bone spur, and the recovery is slow. Not only do I have problems with pain, I also can’t swallow solid food. I have to have soups, milkshakes, and juices. I love the milkshakes, but I getting very tired of soups.

I thought I would use part of this post to catch you up on where my writing is going, and what is coming up.

  • I have a literary agent interested in my work who is from Colorado-USA. If I connect with him a new world will open up. Tom Brady from the Patriots has an agent and has done pretty well with that. 🙂
  • My first book, “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World,” received a national award from the Reader’s Favorite Awards. I am very proud of that, and hope to continue writing the type of books people will like.
  • I have been working on my second book, which I am writing with Dennis Booth from New South Wales, Australia. It will be called, “Signs of Hope: For the Weak Days.” (Working title) It is a devotional, and has excerpts from my blog: www.dailysignsofhope.com. The blog has over 47,000 followers. Check it out yourself and see why. CLUE… the title gives away why so many people come there.

Now as I always do, no matter what the subject is above,  will share some thoughts that have helped me cope in this not so friendly world.

Are you walking on a treadmill and getting no where? Do you seem to go one step forward and two steps backwards?  Have you faced more than your share of trials and storms?

All of us have felt like there is a huge magnate on our shoulders dragging us down. We all have faced severe storms.

Yes, I personally have found that this is very hard to face. I am overwhelmed just like anyone else is.

The difference for me is that I know that I have a loving heavenly father who is watching over me. I know that He cares. He made us in His own image, and if He has done that, He will do what he can to help us through those storms and trials we face.

Yes, God does allow the storms, but He is there to help calm them.

Never feel alone. Never feel like God is far away some days. He is always near and will listen to your cries for help.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
