Lately I’ve noticed a few articles from bloggers on how to increase the number of followers. I read them and it made me feel bad or more like a tad bit sad. My views and followers are few in comparison compared to most bloggers.
I started my blog to share my story in a way that would minister to anyone with a broken heart and to encourage others to seek Jesus during their storms. It was never about numbers.
I love my blog and it makes me happy when someone is touched by my story but my hope is to lead you closer to my God. The Bible states “there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents”. Now that’s rejoicing and way better than the amount of followers a blogger could have. Picture angels in the presence of the Lord rejoicing over you.
I want to be the blogger that gives all honor to God and I welcome you on my journey. When I imagine Jesus washing the feet of his disciples as an act of humility, how can I care about self promotion? Who am I that I should ever take credit for what God is doing in my life.
Now about my journey… I do have good news to share. My prayers were answered. I will have less chemo than what was originally planned. On July 13th I start my treatments and I will do exactly what scripture states: “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind” Luke 10:27.
