Weekend Wisdom: What God Gave Us

Here are scriptures to help you deal with the panic that is gripping our country.

Yes, we were given self-control. That is why people are buying up toilet paper.

Am I panicked over this situation – no.

I am living my life as normal, getting up stumbling across the hall and working my virtual logistics job, walking across the yard to get the mail, and going to the grocery store and the drug store.

All will be well because even though the Corona virus is in the air – God is STILL on the throne.

He’s got this.

He knew about COVID-19 and all the other germs, bacteria and viruses before He created the heavens and earth.

So stay calm and remember what Jesus (God the Son) said:

33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33
English Standard Version
(ESV)

Yes indeed, He overcame the world by dying on the cross and rising from the grave 3 days later.

There is no need to panic, just take appropriate precautions…and quit hoarding the toilet paper.

Now I am off to the grocery store.

Last Day for Free Copy of Discovering Love Online by Chuck Miller

shelby-deeter-193590

Today is the last day to get your FREE copy of Discovering Love Online: Love Maybe Closer Than You Think: (How to Find the Love of Your Life Online). At the stroke of midnight, the price will be $7.99 for the Kindle version.

It is a pleasure to write posts about this book because I saw Chuck struggle with his grief and wonder what God was doing with his grief. Well, I believe the book Discovering Love Online and its companion website is the good work God had in mind for Chuck.

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose

Romans 8:28

#1 vs #2

I heard from Chuck last night and he has reached the #2 spot in Love and Romance but the number of downloads slowed so he is now at the #5 spot. Downloads are what matters in determining rankings and not the number of people who read a book. I never knew that fact.

The goal is to reach #1 in downloads because per Chuck:

It makes a big difference to reach #1 compared to #2, in prestige as well as long-term rankings.

When you are starting a new business, you need all the help and prestige you can get.

My Copy

I’ve started reading my copy and with the winter storm about to make the weather awful (rain turning to ice, turning to 6 – 12 inches of snow), this weekend will be a perfect time to cozy up on the couch with a blanket and a hot beverage after work and read more. I have a lot to learn about online dating and trust Chuck’s advice.

Last Call!

So grab your copy today while it is still FREE! After reading it, please leave a review for Chuck. I know he would love to hear your feedback.

You can download the Kindle App for your iOS, Android, Mac, and PC here.

Blessings

Thank you, Chuck, for taking Deb’s suggestion to heart and stepping out in faith in this new direction for your life. May God bless you with the downloads you need to reach #1 in the Love and Romance category, may God bless this new coaching business and may you and Deb enjoy many more years of marital bliss.

The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the Lord lift up his countenance[a] upon you and give you peace.

Numbers 6:24-26

All We Are Left With

 

The post At The End Of All Things. by my friend and fellow blogger Andrew, really hit me hard yesterday. His wisdom and common sense are gained from being in the process of moving to heaven.

Here are some of the words that spoke to my heart.

At the end of all things, all we’re left with is our faith, and our hope, and our love. These are the imperishables, but they’re ours to throw away if we choose.

Andrew Budek-Schmeisser

Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart

Yes, at life’s end all we are left with is our faith, hope and love. Whether we love well or poorly, love is our greatest legacy.

Will you be like Andrew and become love?

I encourage you to read Andrew’s post, it will give you a different perspective on your life.

Andrew ends his posts with a musical theme. Today’s music is from the late Jim Croce. Lyrics are below.

“I Got A Name”

Like the pine trees lining the winding road I got a name, I got a name Like the singing bird and the croaking toad I got a name, I got a name And I carry it with me like my daddy did But I’m living the dream that he kept hid

Moving me down the highway
Rolling me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won’t pass me by

Like the north wind whistling down the sky
I’ve got a song, I’ve got a song
Like the whippoorwill and the baby’s cry
I’ve got a song, I’ve got a song
And I carry it with me and I sing it loud
If it gets me nowhere, I go there proud

Moving me down the highway
Rolling me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won’t pass me by

And I’m gonna go there free

Like the fool I am and I’ll always be
I’ve got a dream, I’ve got a dream
They can change their minds but they can’t change me
I’ve got a dream, I’ve got a dream
Well, I know I can share it if you want me to
If you’re going my way, I’ll go with you

Moving me down the highway
Rolling me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won’t pass me by
Moving me down the highway
Rolling me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won’t pass me by
