Blessings on blessings on blessings. And I’m not talking those huge ones that instantly change your life (although I guess it could). I mean I’m just blessed. Day 6 of journaling and I’ve received support and positive feedback from people I never expected to even read the blog. LinkedIn has been one of the most surprising places of support. On top of that, we all know that I’m not working at this time. And although I haven’t received any job offers and I actually just received two rejection letters – I’m still positive about my journey.
Practicing crazy faith can be discouraging. But the point of it all is to receive the blessings of your perseverance & faithfulness to God. My blessings may not be materialistic in terms of whether or not I can see, feel, physically acknowledge the changes. Sometimes the blessing is more simple than that. Like today, I found peace knowing that I took care of some important business yesterday. I wrote about how exhausting it was to have to write the blog after such a hectic day. And today, I found peace in that same sentiment. Knowing that I took care of things put me in a positive mood today because that was one less thing I had to worry about. And the fact that I actually wrote the blog, meant that although I struggle with commitment and consistency, I’m making progress for a positive change. That’s a blessing.
Another thing I’m blessed to have is my family and my friends. Not only are they praying with me on this journey, they are pushing for me to keep going. The comments & subscriptions for the blog are so encouraging. People leaving comments or subscribing reminds me of the work that is being done through me. It also reminds me that I need to continue. It’s kind of like me journaling right? Journaling is for me to be able to look back on and prayerfully learn from my past. My readers leaving a comment or liking the post is helpful for when I’m having a doubtful moment or feeling down about my day. I know I can come back to read those comments or see that my blog postings are being enjoyed by someone other than me.
What we do, what I am doing is not only for me. When I decided to publicly journal my journey, I did so with the sole intention of doing God’s work. My spirit led me to do this and I believe it’s for a bigger cause than me gaining followers or being able to say “I’m a blogger.” Just like what you do throughout your day. You’re not living for yourself. You’re living for Jesus. So you are my blessing. We are blessed.
Thank you for joining me on this journey. And thank you for blessing me with your presence. Like this entry or comment so I know you’re with me. Be blessed!
