So, I am asking myself, and God, “What is my purpose in blogging?” What do I want to get out of it? Why have I suddenly become interested in it?
To be honest, I still don’t even know much about this blogging thing. I don’t really know how it works or even how you find other bloggers that have the same interests and quite frankly, who would have an interest in what I am writing about? How do you get people to read your posts? Where are they being posted? Are they in some kind of black blogging space somewhere no one can even find? Is this just for my own ego, do I like to hear myself type? Is it a fantasy of mine to become the next most popular blogger that everyone wants to follow?
I don’t have a Twitter account, I’m not even sure what that is. I have a Facebook account and email and this free Wordpress account and that is it. The only thing I have to go by is this sudden urge to write in hopes that I may help, inspire, and or motivate someone else to live their life with “Purpose“. Hopefully, to follow God’s purpose for their lives.
When I say Purpose, I don’t mean you have to be a famous evangelist or start your own multi million dollar business or even reach 1,000 “friends” on your Facebook page or have all kinds of Twitter followers. (And again, not even sure what that is). I mean, live your life the way God has called you to and be at peace with whatever that is. If it is a stay at home Mom, embrace it, if it is a teacher, teach with passion, if it is a pastor, preach it! Whatever it is, don’t compromise.
Don’t compromise, what does that mean? Well, the Merriam Webster definition reads: a way of reaching agreement in which each person or group gives up something that was wanted in order to end an argument or dispute
: something that combines the qualities of two different things
: a change that makes something worse and that is not done for a good reason
We all have a purpose here on earth. Some or most of us are searching for something that isn’t truly what we should be looking for and that could be why you aren’t happy.
I want to admit that I have compromised recently, I have never posted any of my blog on my Facebook page or even shared with anyone, not even my own husband, that I have started one! In fear of what my “friends” may think. What am I afraid of? Rejection? Being talked about? Not being accepted?
Nothing says it better than His word in Romans 12:2-21
“God has given each of us the ability to do certain things well.”
Through studying God’s word, I am finding that He has a great plan for me and He has a plan for you too!
I am Thankful for that One Follower that I have, thank you for taking the time in reading my first post. I hope you will continue to read them and pray for you to receive happiness and comfort in them.
