The Ray Edwards Show is a weekly podcast dedicated to Internet Business, Leadership, and Productivity. My goal is to help you succeed with your online business, and this show is for you, whether you're a seasoned veteran who's been online for years — or you haven't even made your first dollar online! We can all reach for higher levels of success in business and in life!

My intention is to publish a new podcast each week on Tuesdays, along with an outline (or “show notes” like these.) While you will be able to listen or download episodes here on my blog, it will be much easier for you to subscribe in iTunes.

Spiritual Foundations

Facing tough times? One reason God performs miraculous works is so that we will remember them. These remembrances, or testimonies, are to be food for us! That food – nourishment – reminds us and feeds our faith so we can believe that He always remembers His promises to us.

“He has made His wonderful works to be remembered;
The Lord is gracious and full of compassion.
He has given food to those who fear Him;
He will ever be mindful of His covenant.”

Psalm 111:4

    Too bad.  Having the same problems accessing Week 2 that I had accessing Week 1. 

    •  @williammcpeck William, I am very sorry you are having a problem. I am also at a loss to explain why the problem is occurring. The player, and all the links, are working fine from my end. And we have had hundreds of downloads of last week’s episode, with no one else reporting the problem that you are experiencing.
      I am not saying that the problem is your fault! Just that I have very little data with which to try and help you solve the problem. One answer might be to simply subscribe to the podcast in iTunes, bypassing the player and download link from the website.
      Meanwhile, if you could please let me know what operating system, browser, and computer you are using, perhaps I can help you figure out why this is happening. Thank you for your patience!

        Hi Ray.  Thanks for your offer.  After your reply last week, I suspected the problem is somehow at my end.  I have not invested the time to try and troubleshoot it.
        I generally do not have problems accessing audio and visual files.
        I am using a PC (IBM Think Pad laptop) in a docking station connected via hardwire to my employer’s network.  The OS is MS XP Professional.  The browser is IE.
