– God Sure Can Surprise Us –


A few posts back, I shared how I was surprised at myself. (1*) This one is being surprised at what others did. Here, let me explain. I give God full credit for guiding me to a certain website that would show an interest in my book. My mouth dropped when I read they requested that I send them part of my story.  Yes, you shall assume that this happening made it into my journal with a few exclamation points used here-and-there.

I can’t help but want to – quote – ‘share it with the world’  that God sure can surprise you if you hold to what Ecclesiastes 9:10 says. – Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might.

That website is pregnancyhelpnews.com

This was a little over a year ago but, as of today, they just helped me again. They graciously agreed to put an endorsement, which I received today, on my book. I guess I, again, sort of surprised myself even asking if they would.

More proof to me that being daring and surprising yourself go hand in hand.

Share with me your verse that helps keep you going as Ecclesiastes 9:10 sure does for me. I’m sure many others, along with myself, could use as many to encourage us as possible.
