I have zero grounds to give anyone advice. Except maybe...nope, I've got nothin'. I don't have any great housekeeping tips (sometimes, when I'm desperate, I don't sort my laundry...I just throw it all in the washer together. And we've lived in our house for 4 months and I've only hung one picture...the nail was already there), I'm still raising my kids so whether or not I will EVER be qualified to give advice in that area still remains to be seen, I don't have great recipes or pictures to share, I'm overweight and I'm still early in my spiritual transformation. See? Besides things you might learn from that comedian who's always giving people their "sign", the only things I have to offer are what God gives me to share.
I need to write, I need to put words on paper and screen. It's what God has given me. I'm not Mark Twain or Apostle Paul or Ann Voskamp and that's okay. I don't have to be. God isn't comparing me to any of those people. The fact that I do is a character defect that I'm praying God will take away. The only thing God is comparing me to is the ability He's given me versus what I use.
It's not about who reads...it's okay if nobody does.
It's not about followers or page views or awards.
It's about HIM (the great and awesome and gracious and LOVE God) and trusting HIM enough to put the pencil to the paper...to put my money (or, in this case, my pen) where my mouth is.
My goals for the next year (until March 27, 2016) are
- Write SOMETHING 5 days a week.
- Post to this blog 2 times per week.
I am dedicating this to God and I am trusting Him to direct my steps and to do whatever work within me that He sees fit.
