Yea, I am desperate for Him.
The Him is none other--Jesus Christ.
We had a great service today at church--great sermon--on prayer.
My blog has really been on my heart lately--I've been blogging for six years now and the last few months have really dropped the ball.
I don't remember praying specific prayers about my blog but God knows me intimately and I believe the very thoughts of Christians committed to walking with Him, following in His footsteps--are prayers that rise to Him.
UPDATE--I was talking about praying about my blog recently in the above sentence--yes, I have prayed many prayers over the last six years for my blog to glorify God and for my readers also--just a little clarification--
So I know He knows my thoughts, my intents, my desires.
I don't know what I really expected when I first started blogging--I know that I love to write and one part of me was hoping that my writings would touch someone else.
With my whole heart I know that I wanted to glorify God BUT.............. Somewhere deep inside I wonder if I was wanting to have a "famous" blog--
To be perfectly honest, I don't think I even realized then that "famous blogs" were possible--so hopefully that was not in my thoughts.
But I have struggled along the way, wishing for more readers, more people to comment,--etc. etc.
Well, after six years, I think I know that I will never be a famous blogger BUT............ Today, when we were having special prayer at church and I was asking God what He wanted from me, my blog kept coming to my mind.
Now, I NEVER want to inject my own thinking into God's Words as He speaks to me, but I couldn't get it out of my mind nor can I now SO............ I guess I'm back.
I don't know how often I will post.
It was a real discipline to sit down at my computer tonight and just start typing--not to measure my words or edit and re-edit but just to type out my feelings.
I hope you are desperate for God also. Let's plan to spend some time together the next few days talking about Jesus and how wonderful He is.
I think about you--readers of this blog (and I just teared up as I typed this) and how very important you are to me--but way more importantly than that is the fact that you are so precious to God.
He loves You so very much. If you do not know Him, I pray that you will come to know Him in the days ahead.
If you are a child of His, I pray that your walk with Him will grow stronger and your prayer life more faithful.
That is what I desire so much. Hope your Monday is great.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. Eph. 1:3
bolding is mine--with every spiritual blessing?!!--wow--why don't you take a minute a list a few of his spiritual blessings to you? I think I will also.
If you leave a comment, I would love it if you would list one or two of your spiritual blessings.
