It’s been a while.
Whoosh! Where to start….
I have decided to write on here again 🙂 So let’s start there…
Those of you that have followed me ( if you remember me) and those that know me have seen me go through this love and not-so-much-love with writing this blog. I love to write. I I love to share the things that God shares with me with you all.
But there is another side to writing this blog.
The side where I become super consumed with the details of how the blog looks, how frequently I post, my horrible grammar, and then there is the views… How many people am I reaching?
It’s not how it appears at first glance. I am not consumed with it for prideful things or because I want to be seen by millions of people or even because I want to seem to have it perfectly together.
It’s because I am writing this about the Lord… For the Lord. I give 110% in whatever I do. But when it comes to this blog, I feel like I am not meeting those high standards for Him.
Bondservants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord.
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
It becomes a consuming thing to me, so I stop. However, He keeps drawing me back here. So here I am..
Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.
He says… Follow Me… Come on Follow ME
Ok, Lord, I will follow you. You sure about this? I’m a bit of a mess. I’ve got a bit of a full plate, don’t you think?
Follow me… I’m over here Follow me.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
I hear you. I want to be with you, Lord. I will follow you, Lord.
So here I am I am following Him. He’s got it all figured out and the things I get consumed by are my ideas. He will lead me. I don’t need to get consumed. He’s got that part covered. I just need to be the vessel.
On a side note…
It’s funny, these posts take a different turn than what I think them out to in my head. I had planned to make a bunch of promises about how I would do better at my grammar and not have year-long gaps between my posts. Yadda, yadda.
I also planned to tell you about how I gave the devil a few gut shots today that helped me realize that nudge to write on here again was not all in my head but Jesus saying follow me…
But alas that is for another time.
As always friends,
