Hello Fellow Devotional Bloggers:
I've never done this before and I have no idea how it will work out - but I have a BIG GOD who can handle even the simplest details - even when I can't!! LOL!
Anyway - let's get to it!
Last night, after the conclusion of teaching the book of Revelation, the class gave me a 'gift' and I would like to turn it around and give a portion of it back to the LORD by giving away some books to you!
I am going to give away 5 copies [random drawing] to those of you who desire to try for a shot at the book called:
In A Pit with a LION on a Snowy Day
How to Survive and Thrive When Opportunity Roars
based on: 2 Samuel 23:20-23
by author Mark Batterson
Here's the question on the back of the book if you have no idea what this is about. He asks:
WHAT IF THE LIFE YOU REALLY WANT, AND THE FUTURE GOD WANTS FOR YOU, IS HIDING RIGHT NOW IN YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM, YOUR WORST FAILURE... YOUR GREATEST FEAR?
************I just ordered 10 copies today - some will be given out to people in my Bible studies here - but I thought it might be fun to give them [randomly] to those of you on our Devotional Blog connections. You may already have a copy - so put your name in anyway so you can give one away if you win.
OK - here's the deal and how it will work. If you post a comment on this post title : FREE BOOK GIVEAWAY - submit your first name [for now] - your State - and briefly complete the following statement:
First Name: _____________
State:___________ [USA - addresses only please]
"I want to be a 'LION chaser' who goes after the promises of God - rather than a 'scaredy-cat' who runs away and hides in fear because..."
Bear with me on getting through the 'kinks' because I am NOT computer savvy [my son-in-law must be laughing right now and shaking his head in agreement - all the way in FL] BUT GOD... will make this happen because I know HE is leading this desire to give away these books. Besides - when all else fails - we'll do it the old fashioned way - names in the hat works for me! ;-)
Trust me on this - as I trust God - and together He'll [we'll] make it Fair and Fun!
I will do this random drawing with the help of my Bible study group once I have at least 25 names in the bin or by Friday - March 13th! Not even the 'odd's of that doomsday date [Friday the 13th] can stop a good thing when God has His Hand in it!
Tell your friends to post so many people will have a chance at these 5 copies.
OK - there's one more thing for those of you who read all the way to the end of this post. If you post your comment above as instructed - AND - you add your name to follow TRUTHSHARER down the left side of this Blog Those Who Follow Christ [with me] - then YOUR NAME will automatically be entered X2 - giving you more 'odds' to win!!
PS: I will remind you - and others - in each future Blog how to post back to this day for the giveaway. I will keep track. Once the winners are chosen - then I will need your complete mailing addresses so they can be sent to you directly. And yes, I will even pay the postage [USA only]!
Looking UPward and Choosing JOY,
[Time to FLY]
