Smelling the Sweetness of Victory!

Happy 364!

I mean happy BLOG #364! Oh yes you guys! Tomorrow’s post is blog #365… I can smell the sweetness of victory blowing through the mountain air! I’m pretty curious… is God going to give me a gigantic promotion tomorrow? You guys KNOW that he does work like that! He REWARDS FAITHFULNESS! I feel like a kid on Christmas EVE! I might even bake Jesus some cookies tonight!! lol

Matthew 5:22-23

“The servant who had received the two bags of silver came forward and said, ‘Master, you gave me two bags of silver to invest, and I have earned two more.’

“The master said, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!’

Something SUPER happens EVERY time any of us defy the unfavorable odds of failure and we demonstrate classic levels of discipline and courage… to WORK a TALENT until we have DOUBLED THE INITIAL INVESTMENT! God really does reward faithfulness! So keep doing the RIGHT THING… and keep doing it with ALL YOUR HEART… and you are CERTAIN to walk across a graduation platform!

Somewhere in the future… you will most definitely hear the words, “WELL DONE, my GOOD and FAITHFUL servant! You have been faithful in handling THIS SMALL AMOUNT, so NOW I will give you MANY MORE responsibilities!” And then your God will smile, and look at you and SAY, “Let’s CELEBRATE TOGETHER!”

Personally, every day I stay in the game… every day I wake up and DO what I am called to do… is another day closer to MY GRADUATION! And I just have this FUNNY FEELING that God is about to SURPRISE me with a GIGANTIC PROMOTION!

365 blogs is:

  • approx. 292,000 words!
  • 730 hours of creative writing from little Chucky here!
  • 1900+ comments on the blog site and another 3000+ comments on facebook and twitter… almost 6000 total comments!
  • 13,000 unique visitors!
  • 160,000 pageviews! (an average of 12 pageviews per visitor)

365 blogs is an 884 page daily devotional book!

365 blogs is a clarion voice of inspiration for hundreds of rising stars around the world!

365 blogs is the library of tomorrows legendary TRIBE!

365 blogs is a gathering post… it’s the history maker cafe’!

Over the past 90 days, we’ve been averaging more than TWO HUNDRED unique visitors per day! Here’s why I’m presenting this stat to you guys: A few months ago, I read an interesting article about how to build a NATIONAL authors platform. This article suggested that once a blog site averages 500-1000 unique visitors per day, its blogger is considered a national voice and a prime candidate for a MAJOR publishing contract!

After reviewing the data… I’m predicting this: If it took us 12 months to reach the 200 checkpoint… maybe we can reach the 500 checkpoint within the next 6 months!

I guess what I’m saying here is this: As WE increase our readership… YOUR comments will MATTER to MORE and MORE people! Think about this… Nuala, Vickie, Michelle, Pam, Esslythe, Mel, Kristin, Puritan Lad, Nan, Rae, Elaine, Des, Melanie, Noel, Dave, Kathy, William, Sammy, Lynn, Shannon, Wendy, Andrea, Jane, Jennifer, Lisa, Justin, Carolina, Marina, Nick, Rick, Chris, Connie, Diana, Kevin, Mandy, Lynda, Debbie, Cameron, Linda, Chad, Tess, Christopher, Sara, Laurie, Terry, Mary, Vickie, Lamura, Rhandal… and so on and so on!

If we do not grow weary… we will see this happen together… and OUR influence will be multiplied a hundred thousand times or MORE! My book will get picked up by Thomas Nelson Publishers and this tribe will HAVE AN EPIC VOICE in our WORLD! Then every time we blog and comment, we will be shaping the minds and hearts of a multitude of people from a multitude of nations… and we do our part for tomorrows better world!

5 things we can do to speed up the process!

  1. Invite your friends to visit this blog EVERY day!
  2. Leave comments as often as you can… comments that generate discussions around each blogs content.
  3. Encourage your fellow tribe members with written prayers and kind words in response to their pleas for help!
  4. Post DAILY links to this blog on your other social networking pages. Use the “Share/Save” option found at the bottom of each blog.
  5. Be creative! Do everything you can to promote this blog everywhere you can!

My promise to you all is this… I will keep on posting the VERY BEST messages I’m able to compose-each and every day! So, thanks for being here… your involvement make the difference! Have a most triumphant day!

  1. How awesome is this!!! I didn't realize it had been that long!! That is SO EXCITING!!

    I have to say this is a daily encouragement for me. I have some people that work with me, and they now read it quite frequently as well! They come and tell me how much they have enjoyed it that day and many times thank me because on the day I remind them they should read it, it is exactly what they needed that day!! I just want to say how blessed I have been by this blog and encourage everyone to take a few minutes each day and read it even if you can't post a reply. I try to comment as often as possible, but know that even when I can't I am still reading and being blessed by it!! I even come back later in the day and receive new revelation by the comments of others!

    Thank you Pastor for your obedience to the Lord! I believe God will be promoting you, and I pray it is beyond your wildest dreams!! You deserve it!!

    Have a blessed Thursday everyone!

  2. I must agree with Elaine.

    You have contacted several of my friends to be your friends and they have asked me…"Who is this guy who wants to be my friend and should I know him from somewhere?" My response is this: "He is a Pastor who is one of the most ON FIRE persons for the Lord, who has so much LOVE and COMPASSION FOR PEOPLE, who always wants to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE, CELEBRATE AND ENJOY life and what is going on in other's lives, and you just need to READ HIS BLOG DAILY as you will be inspired; and there is always NEW REVELATION in there for your life." I tell them to go to your blog page and read it and then decide on their own if they want to be a part of your life as well. I also tell them that Pastor Chuck will make you smile, laugh, and sometimes be hysterical while reading his blog, but he is REAL, HONEST, TRANSPARENT AND DOWN-TO-EARTH!

    Anyway, I just thought I would share that with you to inspire and encourage you to definitely continue this blog daily and I am helping to "spread the Word" via your blog. I can't wait to see what the next 365 days holds. Maybe you should print all of your blogs and comments and try to get them published in a book!

    Thank you again for your continued obedience to the Lord and what He has called you to do. (sorry this is so long)
