When I started out with my first blog, my intention was for it to be a diary so to speak, I mean I could remain anonymous and at the same time possibly get some very useful feedback. When I started this journey I suffered from depression, some days it was bad some days not. But after my first post, my reason for blogging changed, it is like God used this as his window of opportunity to REALLY speak to me, you see, for those of you who have followed my blog right from the beginnings will know that the 1st blog which I have now made private was about my life and the things that have happened, however now my blog posts are God focussed which I feel is really cool.
Why I say that God used this as his window of opportunity is because I have become excited about blogging, I would even say addicted, and he knew this, so I figure he placed it on my heart that this was going to be no online diary but instead a blog about Jesus and how he is changing me every day and how my faith grows and strengthens every day. How my relationship grows and strengthens every day.
While I sometimes do some research on my blog many times I just type not realising what I am saying until I read it, there are even some posts where I sit and type and it’s like I am not conscious of anything at that moment and that my fingers are just hitting the keyboard and once they done then I become aware of what I wrote.
I would like to think that it is God who is speaking through me; you see the blogging has definitely helped e to stay on track with Jesus. I feel that the blogging has definitely been a key instrument in my relationship with the Lord and also with the strengthening thereof. So now it’s not an online diary but instead a Jesus Blog.
I never considered myself to be a writer, in fact I still don’t because I write a blog and I do on average a post a day doesn’t make me a writer, so to speak, but what I have noticed is that I have become passionate about something, I have become passionate about my blog, not only because it has been a tremendous healing process for me but I get to learn more about Jesus, not only by MY blog posts but others as well, and my prayer is now that when people read my posts that a seed will be buried deep in their heart somewhere and that seed is called Jesus, this seed will grow and grow until there is no denying who he is and they are compelled to accept him, because they feel his presence by the seed that was planted by reading my blog, the thought that even just ONE person could turn to Jesus through my blog makes me extremely happy and excited.
I found this scripture in the bible while I was reading this morning, and I had already had this topic in mind for my next post and came across this scripture and thought that here is another really cool topic to write about but then which one would I do today so I had decided to keep that topic till tomorrow, now once again I do not know if this is God speaking to me or not but I will assume that it is, I had this thought pop into me head and it was that I could combine the 2, I can use this scripture to coincide with the reason why I blog, so here it is.
2 Timothy 2: 1-7(The Message) – So my son (in my case daughter) throw yourself into this work for Christ, pass on what you heard from me – the whole congregation saying Amen! – To reliable leaders who are competent to teach others. When the going gets rough take it on the chin with the rest of us, the way Jesus did, a soldier on duty does not get caught up in making deals at the market place. He concentrates on carrying out orders. An athlete who refuses to play by the rules will never get anywhere. It is the diligent farmer who gets the produce. Think it over, God will make it plain.
Now my other topic would have been once again about the calling, and the work you need to do for God, I mean he has put us here for a reason, I have had this desire in my heart to feed the homeless, while I myself do not have a lot of money I am going to obey him, it must be him because previously I never wanted to do this. And I thought the scripture above ties in perfectly with that, whether feeding poor people is part of my calling or not I can still do it as it will be pleasing to God, now whether me blogging for Jesus is part of my calling or not I will continue to do it because I am sure it is pleasing to him, considering there might be unsaved people who will read it.
So as the scripture says: “throw yourselves into this work for Christ” I am going to throw myself into this blog and feeding the homeless, and whatever else I can come across that will be pleasing to God, and out of all of those 1 of them is bound to be my true calling and God, in due time will reveal that to me.
So this is why I Blog. Why do you blog?
Anyway have a blessed Sunday everyone I need to get ready for church.
