Good to be back!

October 20, 2010

Well it is good to be back posting on my blog! I have been busy working on my first book which is a collection of my sayings. Each saying has a supporting Bible verse and a short reflection. I have written about 60% of them and hope to finish the rest over the course of this week. Then I will design it and get it ready for publishing. Exciting stuff! Below is a sample for you to check out.

And the other big news is that my new Journey Deeper into God’s Word blog is just about complete! My hope is to launch it next week.

Well here is a sample from the book I am working on:

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

The challenge is to live life beyond what you think is capable to what God thinks you are capable of.

Without question God has massive plans for me, and my job is to find out what those plans are and get on with them! And I find that out by asking, what is my passion? What is it I love to do? Well I love to encourage people deeper into relationship with God. Now is my passion in line with the Bible? Well yes! So I need to get on with it, and that is exactly what I am doing. But even so, often I will tell myself that I am not worthy of such a call, or that I am not capable. These voices need to be ignored as they only get in the way of serving God.

God bless,

Mark Brown

    Welcome back!!!

    Thank you for confirming something that I had been struggling with, when you said that at times you felt incapable of doing something. I know that I have to do that which has been a struggle for me to do and I know I will be able to, because my Heavenly Father is right here with me…When God calls us to do something, it’s because he either knows we can do it on our own or he will equip us if we can’t…

    God Bless!

    I have been struggeling with things on this line. I am trying to do home study for the conversion from LPN to RN. I am in the 6 month and only one class. I need to review and go take my test and move on to the next class, but I can not get into it. I was ready for the review and testing 2 1/2 months ago, but just can not get into it mentally anymore. I keep hearing God telling me to do it, but for some reason I am resisting it. Please pray for me.

  11. Mark, I completely understand that God has a plan for me and I know what that is. However, knowing how to do it is a whole different issue. I have helped people completely change their lives through my fitness program and believe with all my heart that is my calling. For me it goes beyond helping people just get fit…, but also building self confidence, to really believe in themselves and realizing who they can be and hopefully help them strengthen their spirit as well as their body. I’m in a place where I just don’t know how to expand my business and my frustration has been steadily building. Not helping matters is having someone very dear to me just up and quit on me. It’s all so overwhelming and I feel like I’m failing God. I’m in a place where I feel very alone and just don’t know what to do.

      I invite you to read the beginning of the book of James. It has advice on how to deal with trials. I pray that God will give you His peace, which surpasses all understanding, in your time of frustration

      • Thanks to you for requesting this. I have started . Judy

        Hey how are things going? What has God taught you through James?

    When it seems God’s intentions for me are outsized by my abilities I remember this: So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to perservere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised–Hebrews 10.

    Thanks to God for Mark Brown’s blog.

    I would love to have that book when it is completed. Already I’m encouraged by the few words. It’s real and therefore applicative to my own life. Keep up the good work!
    God bless you pastor Mark Brown. God has truly given you a gift to encourage people into a deeper relationship with God. Your sayings always encourage me and aplly practically to many areas of my life. The sayings are nver out of contetx. It always ministers. Keep fulfilling your purpose and know God is really using you. I am a practical example or testimony!

    I’m struggling with this right now too, but I’m still trying to figure out what God wants me to do with my life. I missed the deadline for the grad school I was going to apply to and really have no clue where to go from here. Could yall pray for me?

  16. someone said to start reading James as it will teach alot of ways to deal with faith . Let me tell you I believe thanks and praise to those who encourage me. Bless Mark Brown,
