Why do we blog? Is it to put a gigantic resume’ of sorts out there, hoping someone will find us and offer us something better than blogging? I know that I don’t get one cent for blogging. There is another reason to keep a blog. I do it to encourage my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ to keep on keeping on in their faith. Hold on to Christ every day!
I choose to believe in God because it makes things better. You have a meditation point, a source of strength. I don’t ask myself, “Well, does God exist, or does God not exist?” I choose to believe that God exists. – Stephen King
Today is WRITE FOR GOD DAY!!! It should be called “Let God Write Through You” day. Either way, we celebrate the same way. We write about how our Lord sees us through and holds us up when we don’t think we can stand another minute.
You said to lean on Your arm, and I’m leaning. You said to trust in Your love, and I’m trusting. You said to call on Your Name, and I’m calling. I’m stepping out on Your Word. – Maya Angelou
A large part of my worship is done through writing my innermost feelings to God. He is the One with Whom I am completely honest. Well, I may as well tell it like it is, right? He knows anyway! He knows the frustrations I face and the victories I celebrate. See, He knows. That is what I love, love, love about my Lord! Nothing I did in the past surprised Him. Nothing I do right now surprises Him. Nothing I’ll do in the future will surprise Him.
Is that an excuse to sin? Certainly not! Neither is it a reason to become lazy in my worship or in my service to God. The Lord gave me a sound mind and a good heart. He gave me gifts and talents to share with others. As I can freely share those gifts and talents, I plan to do so because it’s what He wants me to do.
You can see God’s signature everywhere around you once you learn to recognize His handwriting. – Carol Harrington Brock
I journal every day. I write prayers, comments and concerns I have. I can have concerns, I just can’t worry about anything! There is something about having all of your scattered thoughts planted on paper. It somehow makes your train of thought stay on track. My train of thought has been known to derail regularly during prayer time. I’ll be praying and suddenly I’m thinking about something else.
When I’m blessed I write it down. When I’m blue I write that down too. You may as well share it all with your heavenly Father. Yes, He does already know, but just as an earthly father expects a child to communicate with him, our heavenly Father wants us to tell Him everything. So, maybe today you could start your own “Dear Diary”. ❤
