Wow it’s been awhile since I’ve been on my blog or visiting other blogs. I am not quite sure what happened, but I drifted away from blogging. Maybe in part I lost sight of why I blog. Maybe I felt overwhelmed and became burnt out due to exerting a lot of effort writing my posts. Some people sit down at the computer, type away and publish a post just like that. But that is not me. I have to think, write, rewrite, and proof over and over again.
I ask myself, why does the Lord want me blogging? After all I am not an accomplished writer. However, the Lord did call me to write a blog. But why use me? It is because He wants His Word going forth. In my weakness, He is made strong. He uses my effort to grow me. Reading other blogs also helps sink God’s Word deeper into my heart.
As I look back, I was truly blessed by my blogging experience. I was growing in my walk and enjoying fellowshipping with my blogger friends. I think of the times when someone left a comment saying, “That is what I needed to hear today.” What a blessing it is to know I encouraged someone. Then, how many unbelievers came to my site and was touched by the Lord in some way? This side of heaven I may never know how the Lord used my blog to reach the lost or encourage believers. This I know, His Word does not return to Him void. So here I go again. I am looking forward to visiting my friends and spreading the message of Christ through my blog once again.
Believers Are Salt and Light
13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:13-16 NKJV)
