March has come in like a lamb here in New Jersey. But we have reason to praise the Lord for His blessings on the CF Devotionals website. The evening of March 6th, 1998 saw the 5,000th visit recorded to the home page. This is a wonderful milestone to reach and we can take no credit for it at all. Jesus has lead people here one by one from literally all over the world.
Our 4,000th hit came January 6th, 1998. So, in two months we have been visited one thousand times! The Lord is good indeed.
Some of our guests leave and never return. But others return time and time again from exotic locations like Norawy, Sweden, Mayalsia, Thailand, South Africa, Ireland and the Bahamas. For the prayer warriors on our list, all these people are in need of prayer. From the non-bleiever who stops, scoffs and moves on, to the businessman in an office tower in Singapore, to the student in the Netherlands in a modern-day secular Europe where spiritual food may be scarce. Pray for all these who cross ur collective paths.
One more cause for joy is the fact that we recently discovered that we had quietly passed the 500 articles mark. As of this date, we will have posted 525 devotionals. The Lord has blessed us with this place to share the things that He shows us. We are certainly no special group of people, so we are greatful for the opportunity and the resources He has giving to us. And we are as blessed in the writing and preparation as we hope you are blessed in reading.
In the midst of all this counting, we must never lose sight of the fact that the most important number we could ever count are the people who are helped by this site, or lead to a relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior. We have no technical way of doing that, of course. Please pray that our focus will remain on feeding the body of Christ and reaching this lost and dying world with the love, mercy and grace of Jesus.
We often receive a piece of email with a prayer request from one of our readers. Sometimes it is even passed on from outside the circle, via members of the mailing list. These requests range from problems at work or home, job offers to very sick loved ones young and old, cancer exams and prayer for couples about to be married, and more.
If you would like to be included in the list of people who receive these prayer requests, please write Jan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Likewise, if you are getting the prayer requests and would like to be removed from the list, let Jan know. No one will think less of you for doing so. It is simply a matter of getting the requests to people who have the time and energy to pray for the needs that are passed to us.
CF Devotionals has been honored by CyberGrace as a Top 100 Site. We were rated at four and a half stars listing us as Top 20 - Best in Class. This was an amazing, humbling moment to be considered in the same breath with the web designers of major Christian websites all around the world.
The Webmaster at the CyberGrace site has been very gracious in his comments. There are a myriad of Christian resources listed on this wonderful site on a variety of topics. Please take some time and see what is offered. If you have a moment, please thank the good folks at CyberGrace for listing the CF Devotionals page. It is only through the help of word of mouth of our readers and the listings of other websites that allows us to be used by God. It is our desire to reach out. We can be faithful in writing, but if no one reads we have only edified ourselves in the preparation.
The Servant's Corner presented it's Award of Excellence for demonstrating a commitment to developing a website that are not only eye-pleasing, but also give glory to Jesus, our Lord.
As you can see from the graphic to the left, this Webmaster is accomplished in finished preparation of graphics. To be selected and honored by someone who's talents are so evident is quite a compliment. One for which we are blessed and humbled again.
The site logo is "Dedicated to encouraging you in your walk with Jesus". The Webservants agree completely with that philosophy. It is an honor and a blessing to be able to recommend a visit to The Servant's Corner in your busy schedules. There are thought provoking articles as well as a little humor thrown in for good measure combined with superior quality, original graphics and composition to take advantage of during your stop. Again, if you have a minute, thank the Webmaster for the listing provided for CF Devotionals.
As ever, you who read are why we are here. If you have a question or comment, please don't hesitate to send us a note. We do try to answer anything sent to us as quickly as we possibly can. Sometimes we get busy with life, but we will get back to you. If you have an idea for a topic, we'd be happy to consider it too. Prayer request are welcome too. We do send out requests to the group at the request of a member in need of prayer.
Welcome to all the newcomers! We're glad to be able to send these offerings to you each day. Please know that your email address is completely confidential. We do not divulge the contents of our mailing list to anyone.
Our 2nd anniversary is coming up in April on the 8th. God has blessed us immensely, beyond our expectations. Our desire is to maintain things as simply as possible, and reach as far as we can in the process. Our prayers go out to you as we all begin this new year. There will be ups and downs of all sorts, but as long as we walk with Jesus, we are never alone to face what this life doles out.
Peace to you and yours,
