I’ve wanted to venture into blogging for some time now, but yikes, it’s overwhelming! First, trying to set up a blog for a non-techie like me is truly daunting. And then, how do bloggers always come up with something to say? Something that draws the reader into their interesting or inspiring worlds?
At a conference this weekend for Christian writers and speakers, I was encouraged by the truth that every one of us has a story. I don’t know if my story will be that interesting or inspiring, but it is uniquely mine. Or, shall I say it is HIS? My part in HIS-story is my unique place to tell of what God has done in my life. It’s like a tapestry with an interweaving of themes that might show up in your life too. These themes are the threads of loss, pain, struggle, failure, joy, hope, and redemption. My blog will tell you where I’ve been, but more importantly, I want you to see where I’m going, because God has promised me (and you) a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).
I imagine there will be days in this blogging adventure when the blank page (“Add New Post”) stares back at me. There lies the opportunity for the Holy Spirit to tap the keys! Someone that I greatly admire once told me that her prayer each morning is that the day will be a blank page upon which God writes His will for His glory.
So, hear it is, Lord. May every blank page be an offering, for Your will and Your glory. Amen.
