How fast is social media growing? This fast!!! (The Internet in Real-Time)
If you visit the webpage “The Internet in Real-Time” you can see how fast the internet is growing in real-time just as it promises.
I took the screenshot above within 5 seconds of the webpage loading. Within that time 44 new images were added. 92 new blog posts were written. Almost 220,000 posts were added to Facebook. 8 hours of video was added to YouTube and almost $10,000 was spent on Amazon.
Amazing, isn’t it? The speed at which the internet is growing is almost hard to conceptualize.
I took this screenshot out of a page from my e-book, Church Leaders Online: 3 Reasons Why The Web Needs You.

The right book in the hands of the right person…
I’m not 100% confident that this quote comes from Tozer. I saw it up on a wall of a Christian bookstore. When I asked the owner for the source he said he wasn’t sure, his brother had found it first.
Tozer or not, it’s a true statement.
The book that did it for me, that one right book at the right time that found its way into my hand just when I needed it most? It was A Gentile Thunder by Max Lucado.
At the time I was in a pretty disparaging place in my life. I felt distant from God as a result of my own actions. I was a very angry and hurt young man.
Then one day while visiting the home of some church folks A Gentle Thunder was placed in my hands. Out of respect for the owner, I borrowed the book promising to read it. To my surprise about midway through I found myself on me knees in prayer with tears streaming down my face.
It was the right book, at the right time for the right person.
Oh, and I almost forgot to mention, it also happened to be the first book I ever read.
You should see my library today.
