Today’s Prayer: Waiting

Hello People of God! Just in case you forgot, you are beautiful in the sight of God. You are fearfully and wonderfully made!

Lord, we give you thanks for who you are, and we are humbled by another opportunity to give you praise. Glory to God!

Lord, each of us is in a state of waiting. Whether it be waiting for our child to return to you, deliverance from addiction, waiting for our spouse, healing in our bodies, or a financial breakthrough, we are all waiting.

Lord, there are times when the waiting is difficult. But God, we know you are with us. Thank you for being good to those who wait on you and seek you. Lord, as we wait on you, help us to remain strong and let our hearts take courage.

Help us not to look at those who prosper in their own way, but be still and wait patiently on you. We decree and declare that we will not be weary in well-doing because we will reap if we don’t faint.

Lord, as we wait on you, thank you for renewing our strength. Lead us in your truth and teach us, for you are the God of our salvation and FOR YOU, we will wait all day long.

We trust your will, your way, and your plan. In Jesus Name…Amen.

Why Do You Blog?

Blogging is not always easy especially if your goal is to help people as you strive to please The Lord.

About a month ago, I concluded that in order to grow and keep traffic flowing to my site, I must blog more than once a week. However, with my schedule, it has been difficult to make that happen. Therefore, I continue to send my blog posts each week.

As I continued to write weekly, I watched other blogger friends of mine and thought “Wow, they send out blog posts twice and sometimes three times a week. “How do they do it?”

Then…God did two things. First, he reminded me why I started my blog, (to uplift and impart as you go through your process to healing). Second, I received an email from one of my favorite Christian bloggers, Arabah Joy. The title of the email was, “Blogging on my Knees.” After reading the title, I remembered what was most important about blogging, and that is seeking God about what he desires for me to say, not how often I say it.

Matthew 6:33 “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.”

Whether I blog once a week, twice a week, or five times, the question is am I impacting the people God sent me to? Ultimately am I blogging on my knees? Am I seeking God about what to write or am I seeking the latest trends and gaining my writing idea from it.

As a blogger, I certainly desire to see progress and growth, however, I must always go back to the premise as to why God gave me the green light to blog in the first place. And that is to impart into His people.

Whether you blog, teach, cook, clean or paint, remember, do it all for his glory and continuously seek the Lord concerning his will for your profession.

Lord, thank you for reminding me that only what I do for your will last.

Are you blogging on your knees?
