I've been blogging for 2 weeks now. I'm having such a great time...getting to know great people like Boomama, Bev, Addie, Sarah, Kelli, Rebekah, Amanda and Shannon (who made me a FANTABULOUS FRIDAY BANNER...which was so sweet!). It's been a present from Jesus to find ladies all across the country who I have so much in common with. I told someone in a post today, if I never meet any of these ladies here, I'm definitely looking them up in Heaven!
This morning, God spoke to my heart about this whole blogging adventure. I've been guilty of trying to impress anyone who would read my blog. I SO want to be as funny as Boomama, as soulful as Sarah, and as wise as Bev. But, the truth is, I'm just not. I wish I could type something so clever that people would spew Diet Coke (isn't that the drink of choice in the blogosphere?) over their screens. That they would laugh uncontrollably & anxiously wait to see what I would come up with next. I wish I had a friend like Lisa Whelchel who would think I was Godly enough to link me to her website so that thousands of people would tune into my blog. I wish I could be kind-hearted and encouraging. I wish, I wish, I wish.
But God has reminded me that I AM fearfully & wonderfully made. It's okay to be exactly who I am, and not worry about impressing anyone. My worth is found in Him... & Him alone. He created me exactly how He planned. My job is to find out what He wants to do with me.
So, fellow bloggers...I'm apologizing. Not for who I am (or who I'm not), but for envying some of you. For being jealous of your blogging popularity. For maybe pretending, just a little bit, to be someone different. It's easy to put on a blogging mask & create the person I WANT to be. Then I remember, it's about who HE WANTS me to be.
