WHAT I LIKED – June 29

June 29, 2013

The following are some of my  favorite internet waves from surfing the web the last couple weeks.

QUOTE:

“God is pleased continually to vary His mode of dealing with us, in order that we may not be tempted to trust in donors, or in circumstances, but in Him alone, and to keep our eye fixed upon Him.”

George Mueller

FAITH:

Brian Welch has a testimony that is simply incredible.  No one is too lost for God to still save.

A beautiful prayer that reminded me that we always need Christ in everything.

This article is a great reminder that the gospel is huge.

POETRY:

Cling to Jesus; He is our all in all.  Jesus in Mine 

 I love the imagery of  “God’s tireless chisel crumbles me into a shape I don’t understand.”  Probably the Wrong “Somewhere”

May we not be hesitant to let Christ in and make us shine.  Made to Shine

WRITING:

I find concise writing difficult.  I tend to think that more words are better.  Thankfully, my wife helps me with editing and she is very good at cutting.  I appreciated the suggestion in this article of reading concise writers to help in concise writing.  Concise Writing is Usually Clear Writing – Dorothy Parker

This article has some helpful tips for us bloggers on how to cut through the volume of content on the internet.  Become a Pro Blogger with these Tips

I have always struggled with managing my pace while running.  These are some great tips for managing your pace on race day.  How to Run at a Perfect Pace

I made the mistake of running without socks.  I wanted to see if I could go without socks on an upcoming race.  Turns out, I can’t.  Now, I have five blisters to deal with.   How to Treat a Foot Blister.

SWIMMING:

This is a training test that I had never thought of.  That does not mean I have done it yet but it looks like a good idea.  Assessment Sets for Triathlon Swimming – The Pace Maintenance Set

  1. What a gift. Thanks. George Mueller … He had the orphanage? A tremendous prayer warrior and a man of faith … Peace, T


    • He did have the orphanage. He was a wonderful example of prayer and faith as he shared God’s love.
      I am humbled every time I read something that he wrote.
