Dear George, On Your Inaugural Eve...

George M. Weah, I am still very proud of what you have done. As your Inauguration approaches, I couldn’t help but think of the tremendous work that is before you. Hard task ahead is what you have. According to the Newspapers, you have inherited a poor and broken down infrastructure of a country. The national News is saying the nation is a broke government –that there is no money to begin work on your first day –national coffers are empty. According to local news, Liberian lawmakers earn on average $208K annually including extravagant perks. Such a pay scale leaves no money for civil servants salary adjustment. The News report that Recurring Expenditure make up 80% of the Liberian National Budget, and the national budget is largely dependent on foreign aid. Salaries of upper government officials and public executives are excessive, plus fringe benefits. Liberian legislators earn more per annum than the average US Senators and Representatives. How can this be? The United States is a first world country, global World Leader and Superpower. Liberia is a third world vastly undeveloped country, which depends largely on the money and resource of the first world for its very budget and operation. Most every dollar spent is borrowed. Besides, competency level of the Legislative branches of the two countries is not even a point for discussion. Case closed.
Here is more News, President Weah. You are inheriting a country poised for successful continuance because of the solid foundation that has been laid. A country which has come tremendously far in the last twelve years. It is indisputable your predecessor has accomplished great national success, overall, and worked assiduously to set Liberia on a firm footing. Build on the infrastructure that will be delivered into your hand. The nation which you inherit today is institutionally intact and functioning. From this point build Upward. Case closed.
Bottom line Liberia. Start with reduction of high salaries for government positions. The country is bleeding to death from this wound. The trimmings could jumpstart a middle class. There begins a path to economic recovery. In nations everywhere, middle class drives economy. It is vital to have a functioning middle class which, in turn, stimulates business and growth and fuels productivity. President Weah, it might be time to implement strict austerity measures. Slashing all unnecessary wasteful spending is one definite way to reverse the money drain and fix the broke-ness. Get tough on the money trail. “Ain’t gon work no other way.” The system is broken; repair it. Detect all the leaks, plug them, and redirect the flow of cash.
Oppong, here’s my experience. I was once elected president of my country. I had won in a landslide victory. Just like you. The majority of people were tired, they wanted change. They saw me as their hope. Just like you. The country had been through many years of ethnic war and countless civil conflicts. My predecessor had done significant work and had made huge improvements, but the system was still not working much in the people’s interest. We remained the third poorest nation in the world. International news media described our capital city as the dirtiest capital in the entire world. We had an 89% illiteracy rate. Imagine in today’s world that huge percentage of a country’s population not being able to read or write. Ignorance was prevalent. Elaborate stealing “corruption” was the staple fancy. We were that bad. There was poverty, disease, and chaos all around. Our young people were wasting away. All they wanted to do was talk politics from morning to night. Often, meaningless discussions, which agitates them and take them nowhere. They were too disillusioned to expect more for their lives. I ran for President on the hopes of these young people. I was sorry to see all the sufferings of the population. The one thing I hate with a passion is abject poverty. I observed how systematically poverty had taken over my people and my country and was sucking the life and zest out of them. I believed I could make a difference so I ran for the highest office, the presidency. I won election. The hope of the young population was at an all-time high. Here’s something notable: When you become President you then discover the secret, that the job is not easy. Being president of a country is not for small children: No, it is not children’s play. This is superhuman work. The responsibilities are overwhelming. Everybody story becomes your headache. The problems were so plenty I didn’t know where to begin. But I started somewhere. I dived in with full strength. George, my friend, let me tell you how I went about to change the national direction of my once destitute country. Below is an excerpt from journal entries in my HI Presidential Archive.
EXCERPT: “Two days after being inaugurated, I ordered a 150-day Austerity Measure Rule. I declared a five months Period of Autocracy. First order of business was governmental salary trimming. I dictated a slashing of the Legislature salary to $7K monthly and taxable, with not a single penny more. I dictated reduction and capped Public Office executive salary at $10K monthly and taxable. No added perks whatsoever. I dictated the establishment of communications blitz called Public Awareness Media Campaign (“PAM campaign”) to involve and motivate the population. Numerous PAM campaigns were tailored informing the citizenry that Government Job/Public Service is not for amassing wealth. Citizens were encouraged to be creative, productive and become rich from their own private enterprise. The general population was sternly warned that private stealing will bring public disgrace. I dictated the Initiative of a line by line consideration of every operating principle of Government. I dictated that The National Budget be overhauled and stripped to bare necessities. I dictated the appointment of a Special Judicial Body to investigate the massive allegations of corruption in every sector. Those found guilty were disgraced for theft of public funds. Criminals of elaborate stealing and fancy thieves, systemic corruption and other ill-mannered practices were tried and prosecuted. Convicted felons were imprisoned and served their full jail sentences; additionally, they were forced to repay stolen money back into the national treasury. This was a major turning point in the country. It was absolutely a defining shift in administering the national state of affairs.
During the Autocracy Period, I ran the country with a council of advisors and the leanest of governmental heads. I dictated strict stipulation that nothing accomplished during this period could be overturned. There was no tolerance of citizen uprising or violence. Freedom of speech continued, and was encouraged. But nobody hardly was listening to plenty talk-talk. Empty rhetoric was sparse. The people were shocked to see good results in the short time. A different mentality was shaping. Pockets were beginning to feel heavier nationwide. Life was breathing back into civil society. Serious-minded entrepreneurship was on the rise. Many of the lawmakers resigned because of the mandated salary cuts. Several opted to remain in agricultural and farming businesses. Others ventured into the transportation industry. Government officials resigned in large numbers, many returning to private sector opportunities. At the beginning, my leadership style appeared unconstitutional, but it quickly accomplished the goal. Business was being done not as usual. Good change was evident. People became excited.
When the Autocracy Period had elapsed, there was a new and fresh scented aura in the country. The World saw the seriousness and dedicated efforts we were making collectively as a nation. The Global Community took particular notice of the austerity measures and respected the dawn of a new day in our country. Strategic Alliances acquiesced to our collaboration on how our abundant minerals and natural products were being plundered. That was the beginning of jointly working in national interest with each party reaping maximum benefit. Ratified Agreements and Contracts made sensible and firm demands of partnerships. The inclusion of our own technocrats, industry experts, financial and legal expertise at the table in all negotiations gave us the upper hand. Where necessary, PAM campaigns were used to inform and solicit public input. Our natural resources, the breadbasket of the country, were being traded fair on the global market by most accounts.
For the remainder of my tenure in office, I focused on reforming the landscape of the nation and transforming the livelihood of the people. There was an upward trajectory materially and humanly. Hundreds of vocational training centers were built. There was PAM campaigns about education, including adult literacy. The Public Schools System was reinstituted nationwide. Hundreds of schools were constructed and outfitted with laboratories and libraries. Several new universities and a medical college were built with state-of-the-art technology. Numerous modern hospitals and specialty clinics were constructed and equipped world class. Two giant recycling centers for waste management were completed. Several factories were built to process, treat and convert raw material. A manufacturing plant was commissioned. Plans were being considered for a rail system linking the counties. Domestic air travel commenced. Talks were underway for purchasing a national aircraft for outbound international flights. My personal highlight of all was the roads. One of my campaign themes had been Roads, Roads, Roads. There was a road network connecting every inch of land mass. Many PAM campaigns were launched on the importance of building roads. Roads, Roads, Roads. We spoke loudly that Roads bring development. Roads spur national unity. Roads feed infrastructural delivery. The economy lives on the transportation grid of any nation. People go where the Roads lead. Goods and services follow the people wherever they go. And people build as far as where the Roads drive them. Jobs are created whenever a building boom occurs. And it worked. Everywhere, people were building, residential and commercial construction. All around were Roads. Roads. Roads. We got the people moving about freely.
The money trimmed from fiscal excesses was redirected to government initiatives. Hundreds of millions of dollars had been salvaged. The citizenry had access to incentives and stimulus packages designed to jumpstart the economy and trickle a middle class. Messages were circulated widely in PAM campaigns that a Middle Class is the life blood of any society. The country’s brain drain and huge population residing in the Western Diaspora were offered lucrative sustaining enticements to return home. They responded by the drove; bringing their knowledge, expertise, experience, exposure and talent. And they understood that the rules on the ground applied as well to them. Zero tolerance for nonsense from locals or returnees; foreigners and legal residents alike. A bonus was the influx of young men and women of Liberian heritage. Additionally, trained and skilled international workforce and labor were imported to assist infrastructure development alongside the highly skilled and professional nationals. My country was restarted on a pathway that propelled it into 21st century, giving a more realistic shot at climbing up from the bottom of third-world archaic conditions to its rightful place among world nations. It was a tough challenge and had taken strict discipline to change the crooked “business as usual” mentality. It had taken thick skin mentality and a tougher stance from the leader.” Hortense Duarma Grimes
Mr. President, you have to start somewhere. Quickly. And do something. Soon. For your own legacy. Your employment began the day you were elected. There is no waiting period with this job. Politics is ugly-dirty business. Human beings are unpredictable. People in general are disloyal. The people have short attention span. The people have short memory. The people have no patience. The people are quick to change their mind about their hero. The people want everything for nothing. The public can never be satisfied. That is why you must hurry up and do the good things fast. In the long run, the public will only remember what you did not do. But the History books will record facts. Prezzo, you have to be tough and make sound and good decisions. My Prezzo, you have to be strict and flexible at the same time. Strict on discipline. Flexible on order of priority depending on the reality. You must be an action man for the people.
George “Oppong” Weah, surround yourself with game changers. Indiscriminately, assemble the best and the brightest minds. The loudest talkers are not necessarily the action takers. The smooth operators are usually coward actors. Learn to be firm. Say NO with straight face. Say YES to what you mean. Insist on saying THIS IS what I said. Be focused in repeating THIS IS NOT what I asked. Be definite with your agenda. Half of the people around you have their own agenda. Human nature being what it is people wish it were them in that spotlight, more times than not. Blind envy and much jealousy come with your new territory. You are now forever etched in history as a President of the Republic of Liberia, the highest office in the Land. Your stage is set among distinguished leaders of countries all over the world. Doors automatically open to give you access. You definitely have earned yourself more and fierce enemies. Discern. Discern. Discern. In your past professional career you became very rich by self-made wealth. Now you have acquired power. And the authority that comes with your Office. Honor the calling. It is often very lonely at the top. Not too many can go with you all the way. Know that. Yours is a rag to riches story, by sheer tenacity and audacity, the boy from Clara Town is the man who now lives in the Executive Mansion. Remember your Grandmother and the lessons and training she instilled. You are in a class amongst a distinct cadre of political miracles of this modern era. You are in the leagues of the Barack Obamas of this world—the one least likely to be who has become! Indeed, Mr. President, it comes with its own migraines. Know your space. Guard your boundaries, socially and professionally. Have your own mind and follow your inner GPS, your conscience, guided by Godly wisdom, prayer and faith.
My friend, we might not get to meet. I’ve left the world of politics. After serving two terms in office, I returned to my life’s calling and passion: Ministering the message of Jesus Christ and writing and speaking about the love and grace of Almighty God. I’d stepped away those eight years to satisfy a civic responsibility. I had only wanted to straighten things out and chart a new course for my people. Today my country is the envy of our neighbors. The whole world admire us. The superpower countries respect our little country. We are now the number one prosperous nation in all of Africa. You, too, can make your country rise again. Timing is everything. You’ve been given this your time. With God everything is possible. Nothing is impossible with God Almighty by your side. And your determination to do good. Good will knock out and outshine evil any day every day! Good always triumph. God is good. And God is good all the time. Congratulations, President George Manneh “Oppong” Tawlon Ousman Weah.
Oh by the way, Your Excellency, there is one element I didn’t mention. My presidency is a hypothetical scenario.
Hail To The Chief. May God Almighty give you victory. You will succeed in this work. Maybe you are called to the task for such a time as this in Liberia. Do your part well. Build everyday a stellar reputation for leadership. Leave behind a legacy worthy of respect and emulating by future generations. We, your people, wish you and your team nothing but the best. We lend helping hand and various support. It’s in our interest to wish you well. My personal contribution during your time in office is to help brand you to the world. I will follow your Executive work and tell your stories and accomplishments in narratives that describe your heart and spirit to build a better life for your people. I am counting on you to perform and do your very best. At least, let it be said of you that you did an excellent job trying to lift your people up. Let it be said at the end of your reign that you certainly did contribute…CDC. My friend, work tremendously hard, and work smart, to relieve the plight of the masses of poor people under your rule.
George, enjoy your Inauguration. I will write you again on the eve of your second term. God speed President Weah. Blessings!

Soon this Morning Thought

And so it was that a few “good men” stirred the crowd of wandering minds and before they could gather their wits… a city laid burning and broken.
And so it is that a few “good men” stirred their own wandering minds and before the crowd could gather their wits…
Who could know what happens to the city!
Lord Jesus, plead with The Father and send portions of wisdom through the Holy Spirit that “good men” might be restrained from themselves. Father God, diffuse what the secret enemies have purposed for your people. Jehovah, break the curse which causes Liberia to always inflict self-destruction on itself in the name of liberating itself. Teach us to see and realize that the only enemy that has been able to reduce us is we ourselves. You Almighty God have made us indestructible; we choose instead destruction by our own hand. Nobody, no force and nothing has ever been strong enough to completely dismantle us. Yet, we gladly do it to ourselves all by ourselves – Liberians – we tear ourselves into fragments and shred our lives in pieces… Liberians.
Send restraint, dear Lord, send restraint. Open our collective eyes. Remove from our midst anything fake that look like reality. Teach us to hear the sound of the distant thunder! Before it soon bring within our reach deafening downpours! Shut up the “good men” and their verbose claims of doing good will. Strip these burgeoning egos. Strip these have-never-seen-or-entered-battlefield Generals. Strip these attention-grabbing-egotistic-self declared saviors. Strip these incite-the-people-then-flee-with-your-family Commanders. Lift the veil from the faces of deception. Remove the scales that all eyes may see what you already know these deceivers to be. Heavenly Father, I could go on and on, but you know just what I’m trying to say. Have mercy O God! In Jesus Name. Aye God! I beg you. Thank you for answered prayer. I praise you. I give you glory. Amen. Lord Jesus, It’s me, Hortense, again. Amen.

Blessings and peace,
Srvt. Hortense D. Grimes

A Glorious Land of Liberty

The REPUBLIC OF LIBERIA. On the brink of a new day! Having turned back from the precipice of war and degradation and onto the slow, steady pace to peace and stability. A nation now awakens to find itself, once more, at the crossroads to a new tomorrow. A people must decide their fate by their own hand. The BALLOT BOX summons a waiting nation. A people scarred and reduced to being counted among the least. A once thriving country now described as lowly, poor and least in the pool of nations. Such a one must today declare a way forward. Such a people must do so themselves. By the BALLOT BOX.

LIBERIA, your country’s future rests with you. You have prayed. You have fasted. You have dedicated the Elections 2017 to Almighty God. In Faith, worship God for the victory the Lord has decided. Praise Almighty God for the President he has declared. Thank the Lord for change that is about to sweep the nation clean. Almighty God bless the new Liberia and its new leaders. Jesus, cleanse the Land, we pray!

As LIBERIANS go to the Polls on Tuesday, October 10, 2017: We, the People, raise high the Lone Star Flag and Pledge Allegiance to the Republic of Liberia. “One Nation, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All.” Law-abiding citizens and others within its borders. Offer your prayers for this glorious land of liberty that shall always be ours. For all posterity. Republic of Liberia Dare to Rise Again.

Hope as America Mourns

As Americans wake up to a second day reliving the atrocity of “October 2” in Las Vegas: We, citizens of the greatest nation on earth, the United States of America, will continue as “One Nation under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All.”
NO treat or terror, domestic or foreign, will change that we are resolved to be indestructible. America will rise above its enemies within and without, homegrown and outside. The indomitable spirit of the American people will never be diminished. Evil will be overrun by goodness. Always! The USA and its people will display greatness even in the face of adversity. That is the excellent American way. This is our commitment to being American. We rise high. And still we rise.

Wake Up, Everybody

In a world full of confusion, and more confusing confusion, how do you unconfuse your own confusion even when your confusion is confused! (I know I'm making up words here, stay with me.)
I’d say, you simply look to the Lord for wisdom. You get to know The Word. You study the Bible. You pray like your life depends on it. Which it does by the way… Your life depends on the prayer you say and the godly path you take with God Almighty. In the Name of Jesus. It’s called Salvation.
Jehovah God is the author of clarity. When you align with the Holy Spirit impartation in you, by and through your commitment, and surrender to Jesus Christ. You become a lone voice of sanity in your lone world. In these times of “everyone know it all…experts who have expertise in everything at the same time…every ungodly one another telling each other what to do and how to think”. Puppets of our own makings. It is a sad reality show on the earth today. You  do not have to participate just because. Hold your ground. Take a stance. For your own sake. As is often said in the African home movies, “shine your eyes well well.”
My friend, all things signal End Time. Indeed, no one knows the day or the hour. No one known when Almighty God will end this madness we call living in earth. Not a single soul in heaven or on earth knows when Jehovah the Creator of All will end life as has been known in ages past and of present. But God has spoken. Scripture is concise and precise. The Word of Jehovah could not be any clearer. “When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day.”
My friend, you are responsible for the environment you find yourself in. My friend, it is up to you to take responsibility. Recreate a new atmosphere and change your environment here now and then in eternity.

“Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” (Genesis 1:26-28 NIV)

“In the beginning was the Word, and the word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.” (John 1:1-5 NIV)

“The Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The Lord was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. So the Lord said, ‘I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth—men and animals, creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air—for I am grieved that I have made them.’ But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.” (Genesis 6:5-8 NIV)

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, ‘Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light ‘day,’ and the darkness he called ‘night.’ And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.” (Genesis 1:1-5 NIV)

“As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it shall be at the coming of the Son of Man.” (Matthew 24:37-39 NIV).

“Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. So God said to Noah, I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth.” (Genesis 6:11-13 NIV)

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” (John 3:16-17 KJV).

The Word of God is a guide. Employ the teachings of Scripture as a guard. At the end of the day, my friend, you are responsible for the environment and atmosphere you find yourself in. Happy Friday!

Blessings and peace,
Servant Hortense D. Grimes

Right is Peace

The month of June ends tomorrow. Half of the year is gone into oblivion. Never again in the history of mankind will there be month of June 2017.  We saw it come and  we lived it through. We say thank you, Lord God, for everything!
My friend, I wish that your year so far is peaceful. Peacefulness is a determinant of happiness. When your soul is at rest and your heart is glad and your spirit is satisfied and the joy of the Lord is your strength; therein lies a person at peace with self. The kind of peace which surpasses all understanding. Human mindset cannot decipher that peace. It’s a heart thing bestowed from the man upstairs. God.
In all you do embrace peace. Do not make enemies for yourself. Make no enemies intentionally. Absolutely, do not set to make enemies. Should you find that you have offended anyone, or that someone has taken offense from your actions or reactions, make haste to fix that offense. Whether real or perceived by them, you take corrective actions. If someone feels that you have hurt them apologize to them. You may not believe that you’ve hurt them or done anything wrong, but if they feel your words or action inflicted pain and hurt feelings, you must say “I am sorry.” And be sincere. Fix it. Hurry up to make amends. Clear it all up. It's on you to fix it when others say you've hurt them. It's their feelings. Be sensitive for them.
Those people who decide on being an enemy to you leave them alone. Let it be. You cannot force others to be at peace with you. Keep your heart pure. You do not have to remain buddies with untrustworthy people. But you do have to foster a peaceful atmosphere. You must initiate and promote peace. Avoid conflict by saturating a fragrance of peace about you. You must not insist on befriending people who dislike you for their own reasons. Some people will not like you for nothing. No reason. Absolutely no reason at all. Some people will absolutely hate you just because you are you. Some people will hate you because people they love hate you. They are being loyal to their inner circle to the point of transferring bad emotions from their circle. Some people will determine to be your worst nightmare because of who they are. It is all on them. You just have to carry a pure heart and keep clean hands. Forgive all. Pray that the Lord would keep you from likewise being their enemy. Keep a smile on your face. A smile is disarming to the nastiest attacker. There is silent strength in your smile. Wear a smile on your sleeves.
May your enemies never rise above you. Those who insist on being your enemies have decided their own role. Beneath you. The Bible says your enemy shall be a footstool for your feet. In other words, you will trample on and triumph above any enemy. Always. You will crush whatever your enemy has planned or has in store for you. That is God’s promise. God’s truth is transformative. Your enemies have chosen the role of being constantly beneath you. Should anyone offer himself/herself as a footstool for you, it’s on them. Receive the footstool. The point is not to make you haughty. The point is God has made you victorious over the evil intent of others for you. Rejoice at this point. 
It is up to you to live peaceably with all. In the coming day, months and years ahead strive to be at peace. As much as it is up to you. You cannot please everybody. Do not frustrate yourself trying. Simply do right by people. Do the right thing always. Be fair in your judgments. Do the right things every time. Right is right. Wrong is wrong. Uncompromisingly do the right thing all the time. Particularly, when human eyes are not present. Do right. Right done in the dark shines in the light. Right done in the light shines in the dark. Right done shines right through the black and white and gray areas of existence. Right is shiny. Right is a shiner. Right is always shining.
Make it your business to please Almighty God. Spend every waking moment of your life striving to please the Lord. Do right by God. By following God’s commands and doing his will. Be pleasing in the eyes of Jesus Christ. Your peace and right they go together. When you please God, and continue to be the best you by the power of the Holy Spirit, even your enemies eventually would be at peace with you. That’s God’s promise. The heart of the enemy will change for their own good. The truth of God is everlasting. The Word of God outlasts life itself. Therein is your victory day after day. 

Blessings and peace,
Servant Hortense D. Grimes

Let's Go Digital

Your Mobile Device. Did you realize it is a set up? The thing is a wonderful setup by God. You see, Almighty God will stop at nothing to get your attention, just for your own good. And so, the Lord God released innovation to mankind for the invention of electronic gadgets. You see that smart phone, Tablet, iPad, iPhone, cell phone, mobile device; all those nifty power-packed handled devices we carry around twenty hours a day! It is not just for your easy convenience. It’s a subtle set up. God’s way of ensuring you have his commands and teachings on your person all twenty-four hours of each day every day. You didn’t realize you walk around with the Bible in your pocket and/or pocketbook? You think the Lord will leave you to ignore the Bible! And doom yourself? Never. Jesus Christ will not allow such evil ending to befall you. You know he’s about love—love for you—love wouldn’t let him do that. You will know truth and Truth will set your free. Truth is the Word of God.
My friend, every technological advancement on earth is simply for the purpose of bringing heaven a little bit closer in mankind view. That gadget you carry around is to ensure you walk about protected and equipped with God’s word. Every time you pick it up to dial a number, text a message or write a comment, you open the possibility to feed on Truth. The Word. That same Word. You know what I mean… “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1. Yes, that WORD! Word Jesus. Your gadget gives you access to be reminded of the Word. Continue to carry around your precious devices! Yeah. You are taking the Word of God with you into those so-called “prestigious” places. Into high level corporate board meetings. VIP events. Seminars and conferences. Corridors of power. Corporate. Executive establishments. Workplaces that ban talking about Jesus! There go the word welcomingly arriving in your pocket. They just know they’ve got tight control. Hahaha. That’s all right. Respect the house rules. They do allow freedom to search the internet. What are you waiting for. Search. For a Bible verse to suit the occasion.
Cannot be caught praying in the workplace? Can’t have a Bible on your desk? Can’t even bow your head in peace? No problem. Impress them. Obey all the house rules. You’ve got your little device. Hold up your electronic attachment! Find Scripture to keep you company. Stay calm. Be submissive and loyal to the house rules. You do know one thing: you’ve got your little gadget. Small, handy and convenient to carry! Packed with power. On your person, day and night, 24 hours 7 days a week. House rules celebrate those folks who know how to work their gadget! Work it, “them” gadgets…work yours. Obey the house rules. Never forget Jesus Christ is triumphant Lord. God wins every round. Cooperate with corporate; they champion technological savvy. Learn your device well. And use it very well. The creature can never outsmart the Creator. God. One is mortal the other immortal. God. One is limited the other infinite. God. All that you would have life more abundant. 
The last time I checked Almighty God is omniscient. Nobody is wiser. Almighty God is omnipotent.
When it comes down to the matter of your soul and equipping you for abundant life on earth and eternal life in heaven, Jehovah God will stop at nothing! Make use of your gadgets. This is called the “Information Age” right? Right! Right.
If you haven’t yet, download one of the many Bible apps onto your gadget. Today. Now. Ultimately, that's why God gives mankind the knowledge and wisdom to invent things. That make your life complete. Things which uncomplicate your life. May I suggest you read Matthew 11:28-30. I have a feeling you could use a bit of assurance today. Promises of truth from The Word itself.
You are smart enough to get it. Go do. Obey the "eternal house" rules. Do Jesus. Your living…do it for Christ. God bless you, my friend. You, digitally-sophisticated you!

Blessings and peace,
