NOT QUITTING, BUT HANGING IN THERE!

God-bless-you-004

HURRAH!!!

YESTERDAY I REACHED 40,000 views!!!

IS THAT A BIG DEAL?!  YES, FOR ME IT IS!

You see, I started ‘God’s Enduring Love’ on May 26, 2012.  I didn’t know the first thing about blogging, but Word Press saw me through my ignorance and incompetencies and now my site has been up nearly 4 years since then.  In the beginning what was really tough was being a relic from the pre-computer age, meaning being computer illiterate.  Even till this day the learning is gradual, though I’m moving ahead slowly.  Six months ago I was talked into getting an iPhone so family members can text me and in seconds I could text them back!  So I am also learning how to use the computer features slowly, but surely, mainly with the help of Logan, my youngest grandson (12 y/o) who is proud to show off how smart he is for his Nana.

Logan has several years experience over me with computer education in school plus his gadgetry and computer games he’s grown up with.  All 7 of the grandchildren can tell anyone about the latest upgrades and how to shop on iTunes and the App store.  Of course what helped them is that as babies they were already playing games with the gamut of the mobile devices their little hands could get on.  It is amazing that they just learned how to do stuff without knowing how to read yet.  Even after they acquired reading skills, they still could figure out most anything on their computers without written instructions or a computer manual, a demonstration by a live tutor, etc.

Shortly after I started my ‘miracle’ blog,  in June 2012  I helped my husband with his blog  ‘God’s Hidden Nuggets for the Endtimes’ to post his many Bible lessons based on over 40 years of learning the Bible from the Holy Spirit.   He has really serious teachings, current events relating to last days, etc. and  zoomed ahead of me in viewership.  He hasn’t posted anything new in months now and still has daily hits, doubling my daily averages.  His last post is well read,Warning- Hell is for Real. . .’  I feel happy for him that people are interested in his very provocative writings.

My original intent when I started blogging was to learn how to get a blogsite going for Drgold, my husband’s pen name.  I hadn’t planned to continue mine, but just wanted to learn how to format a blogsite.  However, curiosity got the best of me and I thought I would continue since I enjoy writing as much as Drgold, even though he is a better writer than me.  To this date Drgold has over 65,000 views, and after a hiatus of 10 months, he will soon blog again! 

I recalled what a WordPress editor said about blogging, that a 10,000 views minimum per year was a good indicator of a blog’s viability.  This year would be the year to decide whether I would continue writing or  have more time to pursue my other hobbies, art and music.   So I thought.  God has His own plans for my blogsite.

Anyway, this is the point I want to make.  No one who drops in here to my site comes ‘by accident’.  The sheer low numbers tell the story in themselves!   It is God’s Enduring Love that draws anyone to a not so popular site with often unpopular topics, but written for those God has chosen to Himself for His plan and purpose for their lives.   One will never know who reads my blog, whose life is touched by God.  An example was a Hindu man with a photography blogsite who liked to read my posts.  He died of a heart attack a year ago, a week after his last post, and somehow I believe that he reached out to God and God is with the Lord. 

SO, I made 40,000 views one month before the 4 year deadline I had set for myself.  

I want to THANK ALL OF YOU WHO READ MY BLOG POSTS, whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever reasons you have for visiting my blog, GOD KNOWS.   God has touched the lives of folks from large countries to remote little islands all over the world.  As I continue to write, my hope is to share God’s message of His Enduring Love for us all.   Many have read ‘Why Do People Resist God.’    We can only hope and pray that the resisters will experience God’s love, be blessed with the gift of  Salvation and have a better life than the one they now have.  

GOD BLESS YOU!

The Holy City- Jerusalem

I love this song and I’ve visited the Holy City, Jerusalem! COME, LORD JESUS!

God's Enduring Love

The Holy City Jerusalem, the City of God, is where Jesus was born King of the Jews, and where He will return to save His people and to rule the nations of the world.  Jesus will establish His eternal kingdom, the New Jerusalem, from Mt. Zion, in Jerusalem.

The prophet Isaiah prophesied over 700 years ago:

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:and the government shall be upon his shoulder:and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”  (Isa 9:6-7)

TODAY’S WORD FOR YOU, 9-20-2015

THE BENEFITS OF A CHILD OF GOD

GOD’S PROMISES of PROVISIONS for us are LIMITLESS and can be found everywhere in His Word.

When we LOVE GOD, He will comfort us and deliver us from adverse situations; He will answer our prayers; He will honor us with recognition and respect.   God will assure us of long life and reveal more of Himself to us.

Do you want to be the head and not the tail, on top and not on the bottom, esteemed rather than out of God’s favor?  We can have God’s good favor by being on good terms with Him!

Psalm 91:14-16

14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

PRAISE GOD!  HALLELUJAH!

Dear Friends,

I have not forgotten my blog!  I am taking a short hiatus to work on a protracted art project- an oil painting of an Italian street scene.  What a challenge, not having painted buildings and figures ever before!  I study art online and am currently on the 8th of 13 lessons.  There are also my other activities and in addition, I am working on a Bible study on Nehemiah for the women’s group at my church.  I’ll be posting on the study later.  God bless you all!  ~Liz

BLOG UPDATES- Facebook Group, eBook, ABOUT Page

It’s been 3 years since I started blogging on ‘God’s Enduring Love’.  I had no idea what to expect when my son, a non-blogger at that time, told me to ‘try Word Press.   Their support team was there for me and also a couple of new friends soon stepped in and offered their help to a novice blogger.

FACEBOOK and eBOOK–  The impetus for my blog site began when I was moderator for a Facebook group in 2011 that later became the Sounding the Shofar group.  For 2 months in the latter part of 2011 I was very ill with the worst sinus infection imaginable, and it was during this time that I collated my notes and started writing an eBook, Sounding the Shofar- Exhortations for the End Times’.   I had to have help publishing it since I couldn’t make heads or tails out of the self publishing guides.  A fine company, Trafford Publishing, came to my rescue by offering a special at that time and by the end of 2011, they helped publish the final draft of my book.  Copies were made of my eBook and given to pastor friends in the Philippines on our last mission trip.  Since then I have declined Trafford’s repeated offers to help me market my eBook, explaining to them that I had intended all along to ‘give it away free’.  The Bible says,  ‘Freely you have received, freely give’ (Mt 10:8).

*Shofar eBook- You will find the FREE eBook on my TAB BAR or SIDE BAR of ‘God’s Enduring Love.’  The list of chapter links is found from ARCHIVES- Jan. 13, 2014  https://heulu.wordpress.com/shofar-ebook/

About My Blog– ‘God’s Enduring Love’ was actually started as a ‘trial run’ on May 26, 2012 for ‘learning how to set up a blog site’ and then get Drgold’s blog  going.  You see, he is the Bible teacher in our household who needed to start a blog to share his many Bible lessons and articles of current interest that he tirelessly works on.  I just tried to light a fire under him.  If I learned how to blog, I would get his started for him which I did a month later in June 2012.  Since our 3rd Word Press anniversary Drgold is going great guns with over 20,000 views than me.  Besides Bible studies, there is a lot of interest in his research on current events in the nation and the world.   Perhaps I should faze out my blog and let Drgold do all the writing from now for both of us.  Well, I haven’t figured out how to do it.   Stop blogging I mean, and then I could continue on with my BB life ‘before blogging life’ with my other interests and pursuits.  But if I do,  I will surely miss the company of all the friends I’ve made all over the world!

‘ABOUT’ page updated– Anyway, at this time I have updated my ‘ABOUT’ which I invite newcomers, especially, to read:

HONORING A VERY SPECIAL FATHER

My earthly father left me in 2000, then I became an orphan of sorts. But I have a Father who will never leave me, nor forsake me. (Heb 13:5)

God's Enduring Love

(Originally posted June 16, 2012)

While many of us will remember our fathers this Father’s Day, we need to honor another father, the Father of all fathers- our Father God in heaven.  It is God, our Father, who  loves us with an Enduring Love.  Unlike our earthly fathers, God knew us and loved us from before we were born (Jeremiah 1:5).  And when our fathers leave this earth and they can no longer care for us, our Father in heaven will continue to love and care for us.  Some children have not had good earthly fathers.  Some have had absentee fathers or fathers that they have not had a very good relationship with.

This is not the case with our Father God in heaven. It says in 1 Peter 5:7, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.  Isaiah 59:1 tells us, “Behold, the…

THIRD YEAR ANNIVERSARY! A Viable Blog or Not- With 31,000 views!?

ABOUT OUR BLOGS- ‘God’s Enduring Love’ and  ‘God’s Hidden Nuggets for the Endtimes’

This week is my 3rd anniversary with WORDPRESS!  I couldn’t imagine maintaining a blogsite even 3 years long when I started writing on May 26, 2012.  Such a green horn I was, terribly computer illiterate as far as doing anything more than email and word processing that I was familiar with.  Some of my challenges with blogging are chronicled in ‘ABOUT MY BLOG’ in the Side Bar CATEGORIES (read May-June 2012).   When I first told my son that I wanted to start a blog, he told me it was easy to do and to go with WORDPRESS.  That was the extent of encouragement he gave me because he knew nothing beyond the fact that he knew people  with WORDPRESS blogs.  So much for his help!  

Few people even know that my intention was not to have my own blog site, but to practice starting a blog under my name and learn how to do a blog, then soon after I would launch Drgold’s blog, ‘God’s Hidden Nuggets for the Endtimes- Revealing Truths from the Word of God’.   I had hoped to get his blog going and I would fade out somehow.   When I began to post, I simply reposted content from my Facebook which later was the impetus for my eBook, ‘Sounding the Shofar- Exhortations for the Endtimes’.  This eBook can be read FREE from my TAB BAR!

It was quite a daunting task to learn how to blog from books like ‘Blogging for Dummies’ and WordPress tutorials, but the WordPress Support team came to my aid, as well as two blogger friends, Shekinah and Rommel, who helped me with the technical aspects of our blogs.  It was by the GRACE OF GOD that we were able to get Drgold to publish his first Bible lesson on June 22, 2012, a month after mine got going.  His first post,  ‘What Really Happened In the Garden of Eden- God’s Eternal Purpose Revealed’, Part 1,  remains one of his top posts.  A popular post on my site is ‘Why Do People Resist God’.   There are viewers of this 2013 post every week!

Drgold has been posting important End Times teachings and at this date has had over 52,000 views- over 20,000 more than me!  Of course, we have different writing styles and reach different audiences, but our focus is the same- America, the church, Endtimes, preparing people for the Lord’s Return and for the Rapture, and related subjects.  Serious students of the Bible and followers of current events and Bible prophecy gravitate to his blog, while I have a diverse group following my blog site because my varied interests also include art, music, travel and photography.

Here is a word from DrGold:

“I have been serving the Lord for 42 years, and back about 3 years ago in June 2012, the Holy Spirit told me to begin a blog on the many things He had taught me. God wanted me to go fishing using the Net… namely the Internet, to fish for souls for Him, to reach thousands of people (over 50,000 viewers at this date).  At that time in 2012, Liz and I had just completed our 14th missionary trip to the Philippines and to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, since the year 2000. We served as missionaries/evangelists on the main island of Luzon, in Manila, Dagupan City, and further north to Baguio City, teaching in Bible schools, holding Pastors Bible Seminars, and occasional revival meetings. We were seif-sponsored with God leading and opening many doors for us in a number of places such as Cagayan, La Union, Binalonan, Urdanetta, Lingayen, and Abra.  Since then, the Lord told us that 2012 might be our last foreign trip. I have since posted over 60 papers on the Internet. Since 2010, I have been teaching the ABC- the Adult Bible Class, at FCCH at 9 am every Sunday, and also for the past 8 years or so, I have served as co-pastor of a Filipino Christian church, preaching every other Sunday.” 

Back to me- A WORDPRESS editor wrote an article a while back and said that a viable blog should have at least 10,000 views a year.  So I have just ‘made it’ at 31,000 views!  Then yesterday WORDPRESS told me I published 500 posts!  That is incredible!   I have written only a percentage of them, re-posted all of Drgold’s writings, re-blogged and linked from many other blog-sites, compiled popular topics on my TAB BAR, and shared videos of my favorite worship and praise songs, etc.  It has been 3 interesting and exciting years of WORDPRESS blogging!  TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

 

THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

The Man Who Was Mad At God!

I am reblogging this because 2 years ago I didn’t even know how to post a photo. It helps the viewer to see how high the condominium is and where the penthouse is situated.

God's Enduring Love

I LIVED IN THIS CONDO ACROSS FROM ALA MOANA  BEACH PARK, Honolulu Hawaii. I LIVED IN THIS CONDO ACROSS FROM ALA MOANA BEACH PARK, Honolulu Hawaii.

 (REBLOGGING THIS STORY WITH PHOTO- originally posted Sept. 2, 2012)

After our children had all grown and flown the nest, Wyman and I moved out of our large 9 bedroom 5 bath home to a luxurious, 32 floors and 350-unit condominium near  Waikiki.  On the 3rd floor level was a spacious well-manicured lawn, beautiful landscaped garden with a walking path, and large swimming pool and hot tub.  There was also a well-equipped party room, and next to it was a glassed in, fully equipped exercise room.  Being retired, Wyman liked to exercise daily during the mid-mornings.  One day while exercising, there was just one other person in the room with him, an 80-year old Japanese man.  Wyman knew this man, who at one time was a very prominent real estate developer, lawyer and city councilman in Honolulu.  He struck…
