I had a dream last night that I found a job.
I had to learn all kinds of new things.

"My God in turn will supply your needs fully,
in a way worthy of his magnificent
riches in Christ Jesus.
All glory to our God and
Father for unending ages! Amen."
Philippians 4:19-20

Trust in the Lord.
He will take care of you.
He will lead you.
He will bless you.
Give glory to God.

I just found out by reading Facebook
that another friend of mine
lost their job on Tuesday.
I just sent them a message.
Five people in one week.

I ordered this book yesterday.
Programming WCF Services
I have studied WCF before
on August 4, 2009 in a different book.

"The hand of the Lord was with them
and a great number of them believed
and were converted to the Lord."
Acts 11:21

The power of God is alive.
It changes lives.
It changes you.
Believe it.

(February 26, 2010 Fri 7:50 AM CST)

Yesterday I found out that
a networking friend of mine found a job.
She is going to work at Offutt AFB in Bellevue, Nebraska.
She was excited.
It took her 9 months to find the job.
She found it by networking.
God bless her and her family.

"Zacchaeus quickly descended the tree,
and welcomed Jesus with delight.
When this was observed,
everyone began to murmur,
'He has gone to a sinner's house as a guest.'
Zacchaeus stood his ground
and said to the Lord:
'I give half my belongings, Lord, to the poor.
If I have defrauded anyone in the least,
I pay them back four-fold.'
Jesus said to him:
'Today salvation has come to this house,
for this is what it means to be a son of Abraham.
The Son of Man has come to search out
and save what was lost.'"
Luke 19:6-10

Jesus wants to come to your home.
He wants to visit with you.
He wants to talk to you.
Welcome him in.
Be found.

(February 25, 2010 Thu 9:08 AM CST)

The book of Esther keeps popping up.
It was in the crossword puzzle for Feb 16, 2010 .
The clue for 47 DOWN:
Her book is read during the Jewish holiday Purim.
It was one of the readings at church this morning.
A friend of mine at SFH has studied the book.
I do not know much about this book.

Jesus taught,
"The heavens and the earth will pass away
but my words will not pass."
Matthew 24:35

Read the Bible.
Study the Bible.
There is much to learn.
These are eternal words.

(February 24, 2010 Wed 11:38 AM CST)

There are four people that I know
from where I used to work
that lost their jobs yesterday.
It is hard.
Pray for them and their families.

Last evening I went to .NET meeting on
Microsoft SharePoint 2010 .
If I knew SharePoint
that would be great on a resume they say.

I took a 75 minute logic test this morning for SetFocus .
They said I passed the test.
Or maybe not great.
There is a lot of discussion about SetFocus.
Is the training they offer worth $19,000 or not?
If you get a job, I guess it is worth it.
Some people do find jobs and some don't find jobs.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
Blessed is the reign of our father David to come!
Hosanna in the highest!"
Mark 11:9-10

Welcome Jesus to your town.
Give praise to him.
Give your full attention to what he has to say.
Worship him.

(February 23, 2010 Tue 8:03 AM CST)

Here is something you have never seen before.
A rocket taking off on February 11, 2010
blows a sun dog away
as it hits the sound barrier.

Yesterday I was watching this video on laminin .
It is a protein in the body that is shaped like a cross.
Very cool.

"Nothing delights me more
than to hear that
my children are walking in this path."
3 John 1:4

Pray for your children.
May they walk in the light of Christ.
May they be protected from evil.
May they have joy in their hearts.
God bless all the children.

(February 22, 2010 Mon 8:47 AM CST)

It's snowing and the sun is shining.
It is a *typical* Nebraska morning.

Did you read the story about the
unemployed GM worker that found a new job
as a professional bowler ?
He won .
Yes, go after your dreams.
Now is your chance.

"In all circumstances hold faith up
before you as your shield;
it will help you extinguish
the fiery darts of the evil one.
Take the helmet of salvation
and the sword of the spirit,
the word of God."
Ephesians 6:16-17

We are at war.
Good against evil.
Who will win?
Be on the winning side.
Be with the Lord and his winning team.
He is all powerful.
It is not really much of a contest.
Good will win.
There is no doubt about it.

(February 21, 2010 Sun 8:32 AM CST)

I heard about 3 people losing their jobs recently.
One of the people gave me a phone interview
for a software engineer job on May 15, 2009.
Pray for them and their families.

"Meanwhile throughout all Judea,
Galilee, and Samaria
the church was at peace.
It was being built up and
was making steady progress
in the fear of the Lord;
at the same time
it enjoyed the increased consolation
of the Holy Spirit."
Acts 9:31

We need peace.
We need consolation.
Come, Holy Spirit.
Bring us your grace and peace.

(February 20, 2010 Sat 11:07 AM CST)

Yesterday I was reading chapter 11
of the book "What Color Is Your Parachute?"

I'm spending way too much time on Facebook lately.
You start to read and before you know it
an hour has gone by.
I need to set a time limit.

Jesus said to Philip and Andrew,
"I solemnly assure you,
unless the grain of wheat falls to the earth and dies,
it remains just a grain of wheat.
But if it dies,
it produces much fruit.
The person who loves their life loses it,
while the person who hates their life in this world
preserves it to life eternal.
If anyone would serve me,
let them follow me;
where I am, there will my servant be."
John 12:24-26

Following Jesus takes effort.
It takes sacrifice.
You give up things in this world
to gain an eternal world.
Serve the Lord.

(February 19, 2010 Fri 8:12 AM CST)

We are getting snow again this morning.
Yesterday I bought flood insurance for my house.
There is a lot of snow
that will melt in the next few weeks.

Most of the time lately I use bing.com
to do my Internet searches.
Sometimes I use lycos.com and sometimes google.com.
Lycos.com was *THE* search engine
when the Internet was young in the 1990's.

Zechariah said,
"We should serve him devoutly
and through all our days
be holy in his sight."
Luke 1:75

Think about your life.
Think about why you are here on earth.
Serve the Lord gladly.
Be devoted to him.
Be holy.
Concentrate... concentrate...

(February 18, 2010 Thu 8:21 AM CST)

They read this at church this morning.

"I have set before you life and death,
the blessing and the curse.
Choose life, then, that you and
your descendants may live,
by loving the Lord, your God,
heeding his voice,
and holding fast to him."
Deuteronomy 30:19-20

It is your choice.
You can choose life or death.
Choose life with Jesus.
Listen to his voice.

(February 17, 2010 Wed 8:35 AM CST)

(Update at 4:28 PM.
I just watched this video of Nicole Johnson .
It has a great message.
Build for the Lord.
He will see what you have done.
We work for him.)

It is Ash Wednesday.
Lent has begun.
What will you do for your spiritual life?

Two people that I know got new jobs within the last week.
God bless them and their families.

What is the planet with the longest day ?

Here's a funny video I found yesterday.
No big deal.

"The next day, when John caught sight of Jesus
coming toward him, he exclaimed:
'Look! There is the Lamb of God
who takes away the sin of the world!'"
John 1:29

Point to Jesus.
Tell others about his saving power.
Pray to him.
Thank him for taking away our sins.
Jesus, forgive us.
We want to get closer to you this Lent.

(February 16, 2010 Tue 7:55 AM CST)

Someone showed me this video last night.
The baseball hits a bird.

I could not get rid of the virus on my PC yesterday
so I did a restore of my hard drive to February 6th.
I backup my PC each week.
I think the virus came from FaceBook.com
which I just started to use in the last week.
Then again... my PC just crashed at 8:10 AM.
That is not good.
I still have some issue with my PC.

They read this at church this morning.

"Make no mistake about this, my dear brothers and sisters.
Every worthwhile gift, every genuine benefit comes from above,
descending from the Father of the heavenly luminaries,
who cannot change and who is never shadowed over."
James 1:16-17

All good gifts come from heaven above.
Thank the Lord for his kindness.
Thank him for his goodness.
You have been blessed.

(February 15, 2010 Mon 9:18 AM CST)

I might have a virus on my main Windows XP PC,
so I'm doing a full scan of the hard drive right now.
I disconnected the network connection also.

"Beloved, do not imitate what is evil
but what is good.
Whoever does what is good belongs to God;
whoever does what is evil has never seen God."
3 John 1:11

Do the right thing.
Do the will of God.
Scan for the evil and delete it.
There is much to be done
for the kingdom of God.
Do good.

(February 14, 2010 Sun 8:28 AM CST)

Happy Valentine's Day!
God loves you very much!

Yesterday I watched this TV program:
Undercover Boss - Waste Management
It was very interesting and changed the company.
He even got fired on his first day somewhere.

"Beloved, let us love one another
because love is of God;
everyone who loves is begotten of God
and has knowledge of God.
The person without love
has known nothing of God,
for God is love."
1 John 4:7-8

Show someone that you care today.
Thank the Lord for his love.
Do something nice.
Jesus, thank you for your love.

(February 13, 2010 Sat 9:15 AM CST)

Here is a strange video from Caen France I found yesterday.
It has a gravestone marker that says James A. Ryan
from the D-Day invasion in 1944.
I don't know what the people are saying about the marker.
I don't speak French.
In the movie "Saving Private Ryan"
they were trying to save Private James Francis Ryan.
The two names are very close.
The name in the movie is fictional .
You can also drive around Caen France
and see the town from street level.

Yesterday around 4:45 PM someone stole a laptop computer
from a kiosk at the Westroads Mall in Omaha.
Many people were around.
They did not catch the person.
Pray for the thief and the victim of the crime.

"One of the criminals hanging
in crucifixion blasphemed Jesus:
'Aren't you the Messiah?
Then save yourself and us.'
But the other one rebuked him:
'Have you no fear of God,
seeing you are under the same sentence?
We deserve it, after all.
We are only paying the price
for what we've done,
but this man has done nothing wrong.'
He then said,
'Jesus, remember me when you enter your reign.'
And Jesus replied,
'I assure you:
this day you will be with me in paradise.'"
Luke 23:39-43

They call him the good thief.
He asked the Lord to save him in his dying moments.
Jesus forgave him and took him to heaven.
Don't give up on anyone.
There is always hope.
Jesus, come and save us.
Come and save the lost.

(February 12, 2010 Fri 8:42 AM CST)

"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday,
today, and forever."
Hebrews 13:8

Base your life on Jesus.
He is your foundation.
He is your security.
He is your future.

(February 11, 2010 Thu 9:18 AM CST)

"Rejoice always, never cease praying,
render constant thanks;
such is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Be thankful.
The Lord has given you many things.
Pray each day.
He has been very good to you.
Have joy in your heart.

(February 10, 2010 Wed 8:41 AM CST)

I did make it to the Job Fair yesterday.
God bless all the people that were there.

"You see, brother, I want to make
you useful to me in the Lord.
Refresh this heart of mine in Christ."
Philemon 1:20

Be useful.
Ask the Lord for direction.
Open your heart to his advice.
Listen to him.

(February 9, 2010 Tue 9:07 AM CST)

There is a Job Fair today in Omaha
at the Holiday Inn near
72 and Grover from 1 PM to 5 PM.

I finished the SCJP book on Friday.
Now I need to take the Java Certification test.

"As for you,
be steady and self-possessed;
put up with hardship,
perform your work as an evangelist,
fulfill your ministry."
2 Timothy 4:5

You are called to serve.
That is your ministry.
God gives you talents to help others.
Fulfill your destiny.

(February 8, 2010 Mon 9:56 AM CST)

It feels much colder outside this morning.

I saw the end of the Super Bowl last night.
I missed the first half.
The Saints won.
I was watching at a relative's house and
it was time-delayed as we studied
some of the commercials by replaying them.
The Tim Tebow ad did not seem controversial at all.
Why was there such a big protest?
That's part of the Super Bowl I guess ---
lots of hype.

Jesus taught,
"Blest shall you be when people hate you,
when they ostracize you and insult you and
proscribe your name as evil
because of the Son of Man.
On the day they do so, rejoice and exult,
for your reward shall be great in heaven."
Luke 6:22-23

Controversy goes with being a follower of Jesus.
You will be given a hard time.
Hang in there.
Keep the faith.
In the end you will be a saint in heaven.

(February 7, 2010 Sun 7:22 AM CST)

Here is another job opening in Omaha.

"By the might of his glory
you will be endowed
with the strength needed to stand fast,
even to endure joyfully whatever may come,
giving thanks to the Father
for having made you worthy to share
the lot of the saints in light.
He rescued us from the power of darkness
and brought us into the kingdom of his beloved Son.
Through him we have redemption,
the forgiveness of our sins."
Colossians 1:11-14

Jesus, forgive our sins.
We have failed.
We ask your forgiveness.
Show us the light of your grace.
Rescue us.

(February 6, 2010 Sat 9:26 AM CST)

The trees and bushes around Omaha are very beautiful
from the snow we received yesterday.
Everywhere you look it is very nice.

"Test yourselves to see
whether you are living in faith;
examine yourselves."
2 Corinthians 13:5

Conduct a test.
Are you faithful to the Lord?
Does he mean everything to you?
Do you pray everyday?
See the beauty of the Lord all around you.

(February 5, 2010 Fri 7:15 AM CST)

"About midnight, while Paul and Silas
were praying and singing hymns to God
as their fellow prisoners listened,
a severe earthquake suddenly shook the place,
rocking the prison to its foundations.
Immediately all the doors flew open
and everyone's chains were pulled loose."
Acts 16:25-26

Pray daily.
Prayer is powerful.
It will shake up your life.
Wonderful things will happen.
It will open doors for you.
And sing like Paul and Silas...
until the whole world hears .

(February 4, 2010 Thu 8:50 AM CST)

"They sent word to the jail
that the prisoners were to be brought in.
But when the temple guard got to the jail
they could not find them,
and hurried back with the report,
'We found the jail securely locked
and the guards at their posts outside the gates,
but when we opened it we found no one inside.'"
Acts 5:21-23

The Lord will set you free.
Trust in him.
He will deliver you.
He is your salvation.

(February 3, 2010 Wed 8:34 AM CST)

"Pilate addressed them again,
for he wanted Jesus
to be the one released."
Luke 23:20

Jesus was innocent.
Pilate wanted to release him.
Jesus died in place of us.
He took the weight of our sins.
Thank you, Jesus, for your love for us.
You are most kind and generous.

(February 2, 2010 Tue 8:44 AM CST)

They read this at church earlier today.

Simeon said,
"Now, Master, you may let your servant go in peace,
according to your word,
for my eyes have seen your salvation,
which you prepared in the sight of all the peoples:
a light for revelation to the Gentiles,
and glory for your people Israel."
Luke 2:29-32

Simeon waited.
He literally waited for the Lord.
Jesus finally arrived in person.
Simeon saw him with his own eyes.
It takes patience.
It takes faith.
It takes vision.

(February 1, 2010 Mon 8:14 AM CST)

"Vengeance is mine; I will repay."
Hebrews 10:30

Do not try to get even.
God sees what is happening.
If someone has hurt you, forgive them.
Pray for them.
Pray for their soul.
They do not know what they are doing.
