In the past few months my blogging life has changed dramatically! I never thought I’d ever consider myself a blogger. However on a trip down to spend time with my boyfriend’s parents, I got confirmation from The Lord that blogging was what I am supposed to do. For a few months before that, I had convinced myself that blogging was a full time job that required more discipline than that of just getting a normal job. But, I had felt the calling to use my blog as another way to reach the world for Jesus and to glorify His wonderful and matchless name.
I try not to get completely caught up in making every single post about a spiritual disciple I’ve learned recently or something “overly spiritual” but I do try to encourage others, tell random life stories, do blog challenges, and share my projects with people. I believe that my blog needs to be a reflection of my life and by that I mean that I have to be in the world & not of it.
I try and live by this:
“I desire for my worship to be my whole life, to glorify God in everything I do, while living with people who don’t know Him and yet boldly proclaiming Him with discernment on how and when and according to His perfect will.”
This is also my desire with Chosen. To prayerfully and purposefully reach a secular & non-secular audience with hopes of telling them about a wonderful Savior and also encourage other believers. There is much prayer and love and heart that goes into Chosen because it is just an instrument to proclaim praise and glory that is due to our Heavenly Father. I’m praying blessings over all you who read this today! I hope that each of you Christian bloggers would be encouraged and continue to diligently and purposefully blog for Christ. He is always faithful (I have seen it already in my blog) and He will provide.
If I’m being honest, I got discouraged at first because the number of Christian bloggers seemed to outweigh just bloggers in general. But The Lord quickly convicted my heart of this, “And He said to them, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to The Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” Luke 10:2. So dear sisters, be encouraged today by His word and know that the harvest is plentiful both in “blogger world” (as I call it) and in your everyday encounters. Blogging for Christ should be a reflection of, or extension of, the lives welive for Jesus Christ. I love you all!
