Happy Monday All! I wanted to stop and take a moment to talk to all 14-ish of you about things I have reflected on this weekend. As a follower of Christ, I have a desire in my heart to really work towards discipleship in our community. I have been awaken to the need of missions work right here in our own home town. I am so thankful for the Spirit working in my life and in my Church home to lead us down this avenue.
After much reflection on my life and my passions, I have come to the realization that blogging has taken up more time and energy than it should be. I started this to be a creative outlet for me. And, to express my style with my home and our current bathroom remodel. It quickly became about growing my blog and being accepted and relevant in the blogging world. That required more time than I anticipated every single day. There was project planning, project work, photography (and learning daily about how to take awesome pictures which is a full time job itself,) editing (and learning Photoshop, which too is a full time job,) and then creating the blog post. It really took over all aspects of my life including my private time with God and devotion time.
It is my ultimate desire to be a disciple of Jesus Christ and to witness about his love and his devotion to us all. I want to tell others about the pain he endured and the life he gave up just for my sins. And, how he conquered death and rose from the grave and is now seated at the right hand of God and pleads for our behalf. Because of this, it is time that I abide in Christ, by studying his word, walking in him by prayer, and continuing Christ’s work.
Acts 1:8 ” But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (ESV)
Don’t worry, I’m not going any where, I am just going to scale back on blogging. Hopefully you will see 3 blog posts a week and I will continue to blog about our bathroom project which is slowly coming along. You will see more #Christ-Life posts reflecting my thoughts throughout this journey. Make sure to check back on Wednesday as I outline a quick and easy revamp to our front porch that you can do too.
God Bless Each One of You!
