Yes, I know I skipped last week's post, but I think I had a legit reason...
Last Tuesday at this time, Mom was having a pretty big surgery done, so obviously blogging was out of the question for the day. :)
Thankfully, everything went super well, and she is recovering nicely ... not to mention, we are eating like kings and queens here with all of the meals everyone is bringing us now ;) ...so grateful!
From week to week when I find that it's time to blog again, I can't seem to find a lot of inspiration for the next post. I've already mentioned this, but I am not a writer at heart - so while I don't want to be the next random girl who decides to post a bunch of fluff and stuff on the internet, the truth is, sometimes that's simply the easiest thing to do without having to write much and still maintain a good following!
God definitely knew my and many other people's tendencies to do this when he inspired Matthew to write:
"I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
. . .
So what, I can't blog for fun anymore? ....everything has to be sentimental and "Bible-versie"?
The last thing we need is more sentimentality, and so many of us use the whole Bible-verse thing, not for the encouragement of others or to make Christ look good, but so that others will think that we are better or more "spiritual" than we really are. I know, cause I've done it too! So what's the point, and what's our motive is what I'm trying to say here.
This post is just a reminder to both me and you to make sure that whatever we do, it has a purpose, and that that purpose - IS CHRIST.
Anybody can put hundreds of pictures and write thousands of cute, random posts on the the internet, but what really stands out, is when you use all of that God-given creativity to build His Kingdom.
. . .
Within the last week, I finally caught a glimpse of what my life purpose could look like, and how I could share it with all of you on Devoted Daughter.
Obviously, my ultimate goal for this blog is to "Glorify God and Enjoy Him" through my writings, but going even deeper than that, He has been faithful in giving me my "mission," so to speak.
I am so excited to share that with you, but hey! That leaves me with a great topic to pick up on next week, now doesn't it? I'll give you a hint though:
...and speaking of building His Kingdom, here is one of my favorite music videos right now. Can anyone figure out what instrument this guys is playing?? :)
