I have a confession to make. It means swallowing my pride. Admitting a short coming in my life is not fun to do. Here goes.
It dawned on me a few days ago, that I have wronged you, the reader, considerably. I began this blog in 2009 to encourage and inspire women, young and older alike, on their life's journey. I wanted to inspire you, to encourage you, to challenge you, and to teach you.
Because of the circumstances I have lived in for over two years now, I have failed to do what God called me to do in starting this blog.
Many days, I chose not to write because I had nothing encouraging to say. There is nothing wrong with that. What is wrong is what I began to do next.
I wrote for comments and encouragement from you.
I tried to build my blog to get more views. To get more comments.
To feel more liked. And to feel affirmed.
I leaned too heavily upon your response and let it dictate how, when, and what I wrote.
If I got several comments, I would feel good and write more posts. If I heard nothing, I wrote nothing.
My face book statuses became those
seeking encouragement rather than giving it.
I have read of other bloggers who have done this before and then read their closing post. They chose to close down their blog. This is not the direction I will take.
I have rededicated this blog to the Lord.
He will grow it as He sees fit and as I grow in Him. I will not post articles nor face book statuses seeking encouragement and approval.
I will begin again. It's a regrouping kind of thing, I guess. My assessment of priorities within this blog have been updated, revamped.
God has given me some specific promises recently and hopefully I will be able to share them with you in the near future. Please forgive my selfishness as I strive to be more like my Lord and Savior.
Thank you for sticking with me during this difficult time. I appreciate each one of you and wish I could give all you ladies a big hug!
Come back soon for more encouragement and inspiration for your journey on the new and improved For Journey's Sake, only with the same old look. For the time being.
Have a blessed day!
