Can You Hear Me Now?

When I started pursuing this “writing thing,” I learned that I needed to have a blog.

I didn’t want to.

My own email, twitter feed and Facebook timeline are littered with links to blogs on almost every subject imaginable.

Some blogs have become really popular, in spite of even possibly heretical teachings on it. Ah, but we like our ears tickeled, don’t we?

Some blogs provide valuable information.

I feared my wee little voice was not going to be heard amongst the cacophany of the World Wide Web.

I don’t often feel like I even have that much to offer. Some days I don’t want to write. I don’t want to be a clanging cymbal. I don’t want to add to the noise.

I’m here creating a platform. Why? So that when my books finally are published, maybe you’ll like me and want to buy one. I hate sales. I hate marketing, but I have to do it if you are to hear about what I’m writing or where I’m speaking. Or maybe as an author you peek in on my journey for encouragement for your own.

But I’m just a girl trying to follow Jesus and do what He’s called me to do. I have experiences in ministry, dealing with health issues, a special needs child, writing and editing, depression.

See. I struggle with life just like you do. And I’m no expert on anything. Jack of many trades – master of none.

Maybe because in reality, no on is a master except Christ.

And ultimately He is the only one I need to  hear me. The best I can do is encourage you to keep seeking Him and not always look to the web for your answers and inspiration. I know that’s an area I need to grow in myself.

How about you? How do you feel about blogging? Do you have some favorites?
