One of the blogs I visit has a subtitle under their title that says "Read by Tens of People Every Day." I think that is so funny. But here I am aspiring to just have ten readers, let alone "tens." It can be frustrating. Especially when I write something fantastic! (Yes, my four readers, I know you are asking "when was that? I must have missed that day!")
I have to ask myself what am I writing for? Am I writing for me? Well, kind of. Hopefully having the pressure to consistently write will improve my craft and make my writing better.
Am I writing for you? Well, kind of. I am hoping to inspire you, make you laugh, and keep connected. I'm glad you're here!
Am I writing for God? Whoops, there it is! Am I writing for God? The bible says "whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God" in 1 Corinthians 10:31. God should be glorified in everything that is done. Am I writing for God? I hope so. I try to point all my blogs back to him.
A comment by "Susan" on my Friday post said "my daily goal is to 'shine like the moon.' I desire to be a reflection of the Son and to claim no light of my own." Am I glorifying God? Am I shining...but like the moon, reflecting the Son and claiming no light of mine. Am I making a difference for God? I don't know.
But I know my focus needs to be on serving a party of 1 - God.
