How my blog got started.

I was sending out Bible verses to my family and friends each day, as I would read my Bible. The list grew to the point that I needed and easier way to spread God’s Word. Yes that’s right an easier way. Kind of goes against the Word, doesn’t it? Anywho. I was reading my daily chapters, and start a blog kept coming to my mind. It was quite distracting, and I started making excuses right away.

LORD, you know I am not good with computers. Clear my mind so I can learn what You want me to learn from Your word today.

“Start a Blog”

LORD, I don’t really even know what a blog is.

“Start a Blog”

LORD, I can barely text them out, how would I do a blog?

“Start a blog”

LORD, I don’t like social platforms. I’ll just keep texting them

“Start a blog”

Fine LORD, I’ll google it as soon as I finish reading my Bible. Will you clear my mind so I can finish reading Your Word? And You know, if You want me to “start a blog” then You know it will have to be easy, and take me no time at all because You know how frustrated I get with computers, and You know…

“Start a blog”

When I was done reading, I googled how to start a blog. The first result was something like “How to start a blog in 30 minutes or less” hahaha. Ok LORD, I am listening. I will start a blog. Within 30 minutes, I was sending out the daily verses. God is good :)

My advice to new bloggers would be…

Enjoy it. Don’t look at the stats. They don’t define you. If it is bringing you joy to write. If it brings you joy to read other blogs. If you are feeling compelled to comment, and are enjoying replying to comments on your own blog. Then you have succeeded. God has blessed you. The stat numbers are what tends to bring people down. Enjoy the people you are meeting. Enjoy the relationships you are forming. Those are blessings.

My second bit of advice, be yourself. You are valuable, and unique, There is no one else like you. If you are not sharing “you” with every one then you are depriving us of the beautiful creation God made you to be. So, in a sense you are stealing from us, so stop it :)

Nominate 2-3 bloggers who you believe deserve to be recognized.

This is impossible. There are too many that I feel deserve to be recognized.

As always, I nominate anyone who wants to participate :)

LORD, I ask You to bless everyone reading this :)

And Asa cried unto the LORD his God, and said, LORD, it is nothing with Thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O LORD our God; for we rest on Thee, and in Thy name we go against this multitude. O LORD, Thou art our God; let not man prevail against Thee. — 2 Chronicles 14:11
