“…Frankly, I rather 25% of the readers read it 100% of the time; then 100% of the readers read it 25% of the time….”

Are my “postings” falling on deaf ears?  I’m not talking about if the intended receivers are actually receiving them; or if they’re actually reading them.  I’m comfortable that “it” is going to the intended recipient, and that he/she is reading it… even if only ½ or 1/4th are reading it….I’m happy.   In fact, I’d rather have 25% of the  readers read it 100% of the time; then 100% of the readers read it 25% of the time.  What I am talking about, is: rather or not my daily posting is penetrating the reader’s heart, mind, and soul…a tall order, I know.  I have no credentials; I’m not trained for this task, nor am I considered accomplished in this field of endeavor that I’ve undertaken.  I am trying to spread THE WORD.  I’m trying to open man’s heart to the idea that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, a member of the Holy Trinity, and the Savior of all of mankind.  I’m trying to bring God back into the Board Rooms of Corporate America.  I’m trying to re-introduce God to the same audience that recent Oscar winner, Matthew McConaughey spoke of when accepting his Oscar for Best Actor.  If Mr. McConaughey, with his notoriety, cannot muster up any media attention in his effort to give credit to God for giving him all that he has, and has accomplished…then why…do I think anyone is listening to me?  I’ve said from the very beginning of this Mission, that if I could influence “just one person” to KNOW Jesus Christ, then I would have served my purpose.  I was reminded of that statement, just recently, by one of my kind and supportive followers.  I’ve considered the usual outlets, i.e. Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, etc., but have elected to “stay-the-course,” I originally set out on; that being LinkedIn and BrOOKS-of-WISDOM.  I’m relying on God to do the navigating; to guide me, inspire me, lead me… to YOU.  I’m relying on Him to open the hearts of man, to pause, just a moment, to listen to His Word. This is my Mission, my role, my job, and my commitment… to God.  I’m doing this, because, deep down in my heart…. I know this is what He is expecting of me.  Statistically, I’ve sent out nearly 1000 daily posting over the last 2 1/2+ years, and more formally, about 272 daily postings via BrOOKS-of-WISDOM since July 1st of 2013.  I share this with you…. in hopes that you might forward, at least, one of my postings to a friend who needs a little direction, encouragement, or even a midge of BrOOKS-of-WISDOM.  I measure the success of this Mission against what I did yesterday…no more…no less; and I remind myself that God is in CONTROL.  Acts 4:13-14 – When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. But since they could see the man who had been healed standing there with them, there was nothing they could say. …Blessings…cjlb…4/12/14
