192 hits!!

In my post “Answered prayer:  100 hits a day” from 2-24 I said:

“So what do I ask for now?  My first thought was for 200 hits per day, but with the steady upwards trend… ‘

And how right I was to ask for more than I first thought of!!  Today (3-3), as you might have guessed from the title, I nearly reached 200 hits…  one WEEK after making an issue of getting *100* hits!!  (My previous best day was 167 hits on Christmas.)  5 of the 7 days since then got near or over 100 hits, including today’s eye-popper.  I had by far my best week ever at 791 hits, and February was my best month ever at 2255 hits;  that’s my 1st time over 2000 hits  March is looking certain to beat 3000 hits.  There’s no doubt that God is responsible, because I have done nothing to promote this blog, and there’s simply no reason for Google to send me anything like this # of hits.  I am VERY blessed.

I submitted a prayer request a few weeks ago, and on the day it seemed to me that it had been lost because requests after mine had already been aired, it DID air.  Today, it seemed like it had gone past the point where anyone could have replied…  and finally someone DID.  I clearly need to be more patient…  and, given the timing, I think God has a sense of humor.

Today’s JO sermon, which will be up soon if it’s not already, was about activating faith, not fear.  JP’s newsletter came, talking about how God’s love is the antidote to fear.  And Biblegateway.com’s verse of the day is:

Joshua 1:9 (NIV)

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Maybe a coincidence…  maybe an encouragement.  Time will tell.
