Everyone who enjoys writing knows the key to writing well is to write often. I created this blog to do just that, but I have zero desire to group words together without meaning. Since the habit of writing hasn’t taken hold, when a subject inspires me, I find posting my writings here a handful of times through the year unsatisfying. I desire to share more.
Many trends in the blog world are to post their daily eats, daily workouts, a joy, happiness, or gratitude project and as much as I follow many blogs of each of these types, I struggled to find where I fit. My niche. What of purpose do I do everyday that when shared here not only could allow others to see me and hopefully themselves, but possibly experience God speaking or nudging them. What daily writings could God possibly use for His purposes if it is His will? My prayers.
My mind contemplated this for many days while I busied myself with the daily routines. Many prayers questioning if this really was what I am supposed to do. God speaks. Often we fear what he says. I am stepping out in faith that such raw vulnerability will bring Him glory.
Last year I received a daily devotional book in my Christmas stocking and found it helped bring a variety of subject matter to my Bible study and prayer time. This may become tradition, as I received one this Christmas as well. “Praying God’s Word Day by Day” by Beth Moore is what I’ll be using this year. Like many I continually pray thanksgiving, praise, confession, and intercession for my family, friends, and circumstances around the world. I won’t be sharing all of these, but promise to share something from that list each day. I assure you if I actually hold on to this daily practice here with you, sharing too little will not be the problem!
Father- I pray that through this upcoming year you allow me to witness there is no other rock to cling to but you. Allow me to hear your voice clear above all others and the wisdom to take action. I ask for healing for Granny, healing as you will it. In Jesus Name, Amen!
If anyone would like to share their prayers in the comments, the honor would be mine to pray for you.
