Why do I write and why does anyone ever read what I write? I mean, my blog is one blog in an ocean full of blogs. There are beautiful blogs about homes and hobbies. Blogs about families and singers mixed in with a myriad other categories. There are blogs that preach, teach and exhort.
Every few months I take stock to ask myself “why”. It’s definitely not for recognition and status. If you are seeking to read words of someone you think “has answers”, it is not me. I am no great leader, author, speaker or dispenser of wisdom. I’m someone who simply loves Jesus and who firmly believes that He loves us lavishly, deeply and thoroughly.
I write because words stir within my soul. Sometimes I cannot sleep until I give them expression. Often the words are the prayers of my heart to Him and for the reader whose heart seeks after Him.
I write because He nudged me to share publicly what I have often written privately, on pen and parchment within the covers of many journals.
I write because it stretches me and moves me far away from my comfort zones.
I am a signpost on this journey of faith that points others to Him.
I am a clay vessel that pours out the treasures that He has given in offering to others.
I write and miraculously you show up to read and to comment. This humbles me, greatly.
Please, I am not concerned with compliments as I know I would write even if no-one ever reads.
I am curious though in finding out why do you read blogs and what kind of blogs you like to read (this is not fishing for comments about my own), I really am curious.
I would love to hear your comments.
