I have been quiet on blogosphere over the past month or so. In part, I suppose, I needed a break or something. Also, I believe the Lord was doing a work on my heart. Last year He told me to start writing a blog. First off, I am not a gifted writer or anything. I have to rewrite everything a number of times and use software to make sure the English is somewhat correct so that my writings make since. However, the Lord wanted me writing, so I did. It was only by His grace, and His strength was I able to write. Then I found myself building up pride, “look at me! I am getting many comments; people all over the world visit my blog. Boy, this is way cool." I would find myself going to my e-mail quite regularly checking to see if I received any new comments. Then when they were not there, I felt bummed out.
I suppose most people in ministry have to deal with pride in some way or another. We want to draw attention to ourselves. Oh yes, It is a wonderful thing making friends out there in blogger land. I sure do love reading the comments from my visitors and visiting other Christ centered blogs. I treasure all the friendships I have made. I hope and pray the Lord has used what I have written to help my readers grow in their walks with Jesus. Also, I hope and pray unsaved people come looking for answers, not just to my blog, but all of the Christ centered blogs out there. It's important to remember it's not about me; it is all about Jesus! It’s all about bringing glory to Him. Instead of rejoicing because I got comments, rejoice because His Word is going forth and He would use a sinner like me to bring Him glory. Also, rejoice in the online fellowship the Lord has given us, both through the internet and in life.
