~ A Big Thank You & Book Give-Away! ~
It is amazing to observe what God has done in my first three years of blogging for Him. I am truly humbled at your response. My first blog “Introduction to Abundant Life Now” was on Wednesday, October 21, 2009. By the end of that week I decided to make it a Tuesday morning blog—every Tuesday continues to be a Topical posting.
Surprises ~ The world-wide audience! Abundant Life Now has been read in over 150 countries and has been translated into more than 60 languages. Additionally, ALN is copied to a number of websites following each post.
I continue to be surprised that particular blog entries which I personally thought would generate comments often didn’t. Some of the blogs which I did not expect comments generated multiple comments! It is one more evidence that we are only channels and it is the Holy Spirit that causes the stirrings of the human heart.
Schedule ~ From the start my intention was to write a weekly blog. Over time I have increased my blog activity (significantly each year). For over a year now I have posted a weekly Sabbath post regarding fulfilled prophecies of the Messiah—Jesus Christ.
Miscellaneous ~ The format and appearance of the blog has undergone continual evolution regarding layout and side content.
Looking Forward ~ Beginning next year Abundant Life Now will move to a four-post per week format. Tuesdays will continue to be a Topical post. Thursdays will add a post on Miscellaneous topics. Sabbaths will continue with Messiah posts, and the Lord’s Day will see a weekly post specifically about Jesus Christ.
Closing Comment ~ If Abundant Life Now has been a blessing to you, please pass the information along to your friends and acquaintances so that more individuals might be blessed by the simple concepts and truths presented on Abundant Life Now.
May God bless all of you as you seek His face and we seek to minister for Him together in these last days.
Book Give-Away ~ Stay tuned. This Thursday the rules for a book give-away will be announced!
