Sometimes it can be difficult to not worry much. Even as an author preparing for a launch someday I wonder about the support. I wonder will I be blessed enough to see it go to the top best seller? Then God reminds me would it matter? Like Abram falling into his deep sleep wondering will he ever have his seed, God was there to reassure him things would be as he said it. I have no experience at selling a book, but then again I had no experience writing one either. Yet the spirit produced a good works that blessed our men's ministry. I was blessed enough to find the John 3:16 network, thinking wow! Thank you Lord....Then just today for the second time in 2 months I am contacted by a group hosting a conference where they want to have copies of the book to distribute. Praise the Lord....Why should I worry? Just when I have no clue what will happen next or how things may turn up, God shows me that he has it all under control. He continues to place the right people- the right circumstances- and the right situations into my path. I am so thankful for it all

My thought for the day is centered on time. How we claim it's so precious yet waste it to no end. The time is precious, but we shall spend it being mad with one another. Not talking to one another, not loving one another. The time is precious, yet we spend it dreaming ......Never doing....in a slumber never to awaken. The time is precious and we must work, work away to sustain an enjoyable life. All the while forgetting to invest time in securing an enjoyable after life. Time is a conversation all in itself...We want an eternity of praising the Lord, yet cringe we when have to stay at church longer than expected....That is if you can get us there...See we don't have time. Have is defined as in possession, own or to hold. To have time would mean you possess it, control and can manipulate it. We don't have the time, so who does? God controls everything (2 Corinthians 4:17-18 (TEV) if God has the time then how shall we spend what he has given us? Everyday we get a little older and either we have done something to give God glory or we have failed and moved our purposeful life in reverse. So the real question is....With time being so very precious...How are you going to spend yours?
