It's been awhile since I have really blogged, and I wanted to explain why.
Since 2005, I have used this blog for everything from journaling about cute stuff my kids say and do to sharing good recipes. Mostly, though, I've blogged about the amazing things God has done in my life--stuff I thought was too good to keep to myself!
For awhile, I was "on a roll". I enjoyed blogging and had many readers who would comment about my entries being meaningful to them, and of course that made me feel good. Maybe too good? Unfortunately, I reached a point where the blog got harder and harder to keep up. Frankly, I struggled to find things to write about. And as my posts got to be fewer and farther between, I lost a lot of readers.
A few months ago, God began speaking to me about this. He helped me understand that my blog lost its effectiveness when it became more about me seeking an audience than about Him being glorified.
I know that God wants me to write and I intend to keep blogging. I've just decided that from now on, I will write and share my experiences as He leads me. So if it seems I am being quiet, it's because I am sort of regrouping and preparing for a fresh start! :)
"Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ." ~Galatians 1:10
