Thoughts on humility in blogging

17 Mar

Well…I’m back!

After telling myself I wanted to start blogging daily and successfully posting four days in a row, I realized maybe God had different plans for me.

This past week has been a little off, to say the least. I got really sick with a nasty throat infection and I spilled water all over my precious MacBook. It won’t turn on (I’m currently using my mother’s PC). How am I supposed to blog if my computer is broken!?

I originally started this blog for writing about topics that I felt God lay on my heart. Only, my love for writing got in the way and I started to feel like I was writing just for the sake of writing. And for the sake of being heard. But I don’t think that’s pleasing to God. In fact, it sounds kind of empty and purposeless!

You know, it’s so easy to get excited when your daily views multiply by 10 and your average amount of comments triples. But it’s not about numbers and it’s not about me at all. What I desire to do is to further God’s purposes and reach people who need to hear the lessons I’m learning and the things God lays on my heart to share with them. If I stop hearing from God and starting writing for my own self, it’s like a preacher who preaches just because he wants to be famous and not because he wants to see kingdom growth. It’s like a pastor who is only concerned with numbers and not with individals or with what God wants for his ministry. And I don’t want to be a numbers person!

Anyway, I just wanted to share these things with my readers. I appreciate all of you and your encouragement as you walk with me and become better followers of Christ with me! I hope you will all continue to be a part of this blog. And some of you are even good at keeping me in check! I appreciate that.

So long story short, if you don’t see me posting daily, don’t think I’ve disappeared. I’m just waiting to hear from God and praying he lays something on my heart to share with my readers. After all, I do love writing oh so very much!

Have a great Saturday everyone!
