Thank you for Reading this Blog

Isa 45:22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

Dear Reader, I want to thank you for sharing a small part of your day with me by looking in on my blogs.

When I started this blog back in May of 2009, it was basically to keep myself faithful in the daily study of God's Word and to keep myself accountable before anybody who might care to read my thoughts on the Word each day.

I have a difficult time expressing what a tremendous blessing it has been to me to be able to share Jesus and His goodness to His children through this venue and to present Him as Savior to those seeking answers.

Today, I thought you may like to know a little about who else is reading what you are reading. I was thrilled when almost 500 people read the blog that first month three years ago. I am humbled that the number has increased nearly 10 times.

What touches me most is that people are looking in on the blog from places that boggle my mind. Following are the countries from which our readership is derived.

Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Antigua & Barbuda, Austria, Argentina, Armenia, Aruba, Australia,

Austria, Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belgium, Belarus, Bermuda

Bosnia and Herzegovina, Botswana, Brunei, Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Brazil, Cambodia,

Canada, Cayman Islands, China, Columbia, Cook Islands, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus

Czech Rep, Denmark, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador

Estonia, Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Gabon, Georgia, Germany, Ghana, Gibraltar

Greece, Guam, Guatemala, Guyana, Hong Kong, Honduras, Hungary, India, Indonesia

Iran, Iraq, Ireland, Isle of Man, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Jersey, Kenya, Kuwait

Laos, Latvia, Lebanon, Libya, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Madagascar, Malaysia

Maldives, Mali, Malta, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mexico, Moldova, Mongolia, Morocco

Myanmar (Burma), Namibia, Nepal, Netherlands, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Nicaragua

Nigeria, Northern Mariana Islands, Norway, Oman, Palestinian Territories, Pakistan

Panama, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Rwanda

St. Helena, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia

South Africa, S. Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname

Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Taiwan, Tanzania, Thailand, Trinidad & Tobago, Tunisia

Turkey, Turks and Caicos Islands, Uganda, UK, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, US

Venezuela, Vietnam, Zambia, Zimbabwe

You may notice that many of these countries do not allow the Christian message to exist in any form in their land. And yet readers are searching the internet for sources of God's holy Word and related articles.

So, thanks reader, for looking in on our blog from time to time. May God richly bless you as you seek Him, put your faith in the completed work of Christ on Calvary and look for His return.
