Why do you have a blog? Is it to keep your family up to date with your life? Is it to bring humor into people's lives? Is it to encourage? Is it to write devotionals? Is it to do fun tutorials and D.I.Y projects? Is it to make a little profit on the side while you are a stay at home Mama? Why do you have a blog?
For me, it is birthed from desperation. A overwhelming need to write. A driving force to create beauty and art. The need to urge others towards godly living. There is a gut-wrenching desperation within my innermost being...
With anything we do in life, we should take a step back and bring it before the Lord. Offer it back to Him. Reevaluate things. Check your motives. Send it through a filter of sorts.
There should be integrity with our writing.
There should be intention behind our writing.
1 Samuel 17:29 " And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause?"
Are you writing just for the sake of writing or is there a purpose? Is there not a cause?
"Women have become a needy people. Needy of approval. Needy of affection. Needy of pleasing people. With that need can come the hamster wheel cycle of run - run - run but never get anywhere... we then lead shallow lives without integrity and intention. There is a threat of becoming cultural copycats instead of exactly who God designed us to be."
More than my desperate need to write comes the desperate love of God. A love so amazing, so wonderful, so powerful. It must be His purpose in my life that is the driving force. Anything apart from that is earthly, sensual, self-pleasing.
Is there not a cause? Your life... you are here for a purpose, sweet sister of God. Does your life have a cause or are your days viewed as mundane tasks that get checked off only to hurry up and shuffle into your tomorrow. Your tomorrow isn't a guarantee. You only have today. Maybe not even today.
There is a cause. It's His cause. Ask Him for wisdom and guidance. He will be faithful to reveal it to you as you submit your day, your life, your schedule, your expectations to Him. Lay it all at His feet right now.
