Well… I don’t! But, at least, I KNOW that I’m a Creation of God and that He created me, and you, in His Image. So, that ought to get me through the front door. But no, it probably will not, as Jesus and the Apostles were denied entry, over and over again. Even, ultimately, killed for it, but that’s another story.
I’m just a novice in all of this. The subject, here, is this: Why in the world, do I think that any of you would want to hear anything from me and my TIDBITS-of-WISWDOM? What makes me think that I’m so great, that I could get your attention, on this, or any subject? The answer is: I don’t know. I’m just following through on what it is, that I think, God has asked me to do, Maybe, it’s because of my stage in life, that there might be some interest in what I am sending forth via this website.
I don’t think that I have much more to say on any subject, that someone else is not already said, or is gonna say; but, I’m the one doing it right now. I am stepping forward…today. Someone has to say something…before satan does his best to destroy us. I’m going to do my best to deny him. Think about it…we…each of us…is more powerful that satan. Why? It’s simple; he has no power or dominion over us. We can deny him. We can and should, tell satan to go to hell!! Get thee behind me satan, as it says in the bible!
I’ve been lead to believe (through my involvement in LinkedIn) that there are 500, or so, people who are listening to me; and some few more, who look forward to hearing what “TIBITS-of-WISDOM” has to impart… And, a few others, whom I have made a substantial impact upon. It is by the GRACE of God that I’ve done this, such as it is. I am, simply, trying to carry it to the next level. LinkedIn, while powerful, is not the platform that best serves my purpose (even though I intend to continue its use). I’m trying, through my own website, TIDBITS-of-WISDOM, to touch just one more person, in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
I cannot honestly say that I’ve ever, knowingly lead anyone to Jesus Christ…you know…100%. But, that’s my goal. What if we all, each of us, lead just one person to Christ? W-O-W!! But, I cannot do this without your help, your participation and your willingness to “step-out” and be COUNTED. I am approaching this through the business community, because that is where I have the most expertise, exposure and somewhat of a standing. I want to talk about business issues, corporations, finance, employees, travel, the economy, sprinkled with a little religion, and a little politics. This is not a religious, or political, website. But we can talk about “just about” anything.
But I do want to impart that God is the Great Leader, Teacher, and Motivator. We can learn from each other. We can share, expose, entreat, borrow, stimulate, give, love, inspire, emulate, exchange, and more…with each other. We can, all of us, be instruments of His Peace, and Conduits of His Love. We can, just, stick our toe in the water, and see how it feels; or we can jump in, fully clothed, fully aware, and fully committed to SERVE each other and therefore…God. With all of this said; I am simply asking that you bear with me, give me a little room and I will do all that I can to make this an enjoyable ride, and one that will HONOR, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. It is not to exclude, but encourage, other faiths, and inclinations, to share with us, that which they will. I know the risk in stepping forward, but God has promised to protect each of us… so there you go. Will you join with me?…….. Blessings…. cjlb…….9/1/2013
