Good Morning Everyone!
The weekend is almost here, friends. Hang on just a little bit longer! Of course, that means that it’s almost time for the second of five messages in our “Growing In Grace” series, and that we’re another week closer to finding out who is going to win the Recovery Version New Testament Bible (it’s only the New Testament) and the books by Watchman Nee and Witness Lee.
I have someone who has agreed to volunteer their time to upgrade my computer from Windows Vista to at the very least Windows 7, and that will allow me to download the upgraded version of Window Live Writer. I know that doesn’t mean much to you, but to me next to my Bible apps Windows Live Writer is the most important tool I have. That’s where I write every message I pen before I send the draft online for the final proofreading and post. So, Windows Live Writer is a very important and necessary tool for Christlike Ministries NWA.
There’s a lot going on this month.
As of yesterday, Miss Elisabeth is officially 18 months old! I can’t believe how fast time has gone over the last year, but what a joy it has been to be home with her watching her grow, learn, and what a joy it was yesterday to be listening to praise and worship music last night to have her raising her arms and clapping without being prompted.
Wednesday February 25 is Christlike Ministries NWA’s 3rd Birthday! That’s also when I’ll be announcing the winner of the Bible and Devotional Book contest. If you want to be entered into the contest…all you have to do is invite people to our Christlike Ministries NWA Family group page. The person who adds the most members that are still a part of the group on our anniversary will be the winner. That’s it. It’s that easy.
Finally, my 12th Annual 29th Birthday is next Friday. That’s right, laugh it up now, my birthday is on Friday the 13th. I missed being born on the day of love by one day, and I missed being born on one of America’s greatest President’s birthday also by one day. If anyone is thinking about getting me anything…I have one simple, but very necessary birthday wish…take whatever money you were thinking of spending on me…and send it to me so that sow it into Christlike Ministries NWA.
Before I close, I want to let you know that I just checked my statistics the other day to see what kind of outreach www.christlikeministriesnwa.com is having in the world, and what I found was quite exciting. The Christlike Ministries NWA Blog has been seen nearly 60,000 times, the 7 Hebrew Words For Praise series has continued to be the most popular series and continues to have the most popular message with over 6,000 views, and for those who know me best know this final number is the one that excites and humbles me the most. Christlike Ministries NWA has been seen at least one time in exactly 180 nations. In 3 years, God has taken what I thought would be a local, friends and family ministry to all corners of the globe.
Friends…this isn’t a hobby…it’s a world-wide ministry that is impacting nations I’ve never even heard of, and being used to teach people in ethnic groups that aren’t even on maps. This is what you are being asked to sow into to help maintain, and make better. I know some of you are numbers people, and God made it rather simple. I’ve no doubt that by our anniversary date we’ll be closer (if not over 60,000 views just a few weeks ago we just went over 50,000), and if you do an average that’s 20,000 views a year from people who are seeking out the truth of God’s Word, and with 180 nations that’s an average of 60 newly reached nations a year that have been reached by one simple blog. I don’t know about anyone else…but those numbers far exceed what I expected when I started this ministry.
Well, I’ve to get things moving along. I’ll be back later with our devotional for today, and maybe God will give me a side journey or two today.
Thank you to all of you who have faithfully stood with me for the last three years, and a heart-felt welcome to those of you who have recently become a part of the Christlike Ministries NWA Family…YOU are loved and appreciated very much because without you there is no Christlike Ministries NWA.
Have a blessed day in the Lord!
Blessings & Grace;
