I'm planning on shooting another video for the blog this Sunday. If you haven't watched them yet please do. You can find them on youtube.com/richardshanereinert and what used to be godtube.com now it's tangle.com. I approved the cover for my first solo book "He's the Pen, I'm the Paper" last week. Today I sent in 5 corrections for the text portion and now I just wait for it to all be put together. I'm very anxious to get this book on the shelves and next year I plan to release "Thankful to be Useful". I'm hopeful that God uses these to encourage people and reach some of the lost out there who don't know what God is all about. Thank you to every reader of this blog. You are a constant encouragement to me.

When you are weak, He is strong. Have you ever felt like giving up? You are tired, frustrated and just don't know if it's worth doing anymore. That's is actually a very good place to be. It's in that moment that we relize we can't do it. No matter how hard we try it's not up to us. We relize that God is the one who is doing the heavy lifting in our lives. We can't carry the burden or complete the tasks He asks us to complete without Him. It's easy for us to think we can do everything on our own. It may be through the help of money or just our faith in ourselves that puts us in that mindset. But when we are weak and we call out to Him and spend time reading His word and putting it into practice that we find sucess. So take time out and find a quiet place and pray, relax and trust Him.

I'm doing another video that should be up soon. Like Monday or sooner. This one is about hope. We all struggle with hope in one way or another. Some of us hope for so much that we get disappointed. The bible says"Hope deferred makes the heart sick." Some of use don't hope for anything anymore because we've been let down so often. We have to find a balance. The bible says when a desire comes, it is health to the bones. It makes us happy, it gives us life.
