This week punched me in the gut with problems and issues that made me honestly think about throwing in the towel and quitting faith blogging.
I honestly had to do a gut check. Why am I blogging about faith? Why do I write? Diana and Nicki and Sandra drove the message home. God loves me. I have something to offer even in my broken times. He wants to use bloggers to spread His love to the world.blessed me, however, with her simple post; and then
Satan can cause my blog to malfunction; links to screw up; but I know God is in control. Then controversy hits and trying to decide what to do about a post that I don’t agree with; so, I decided to pray and approach the issue with love.
Abortion is wrong in my book period. It is murder. I understand sometimes women feel trapped by bad decisions, but there are resources out there for them. I agree with the mission of Christian-based Crisis Pregnancy Centers, and I believe that they are forthright in their mission statements on their blogs and pamphlets that they try to lovingly present alternatives to abortion by giving the mother incredible resources.
So through it all, I am going to hang on battle for Him. We have a lot to accomplish for Christ on our blogs; some of us want to encourage and uplift women; others want to edify and teach with in depth Bible studies; while others want to give us resources to become better wives and Christians.
I want to be a voice for those who want to share family-friendly book reviews and discussions about literature; along with great an uplifting Bible studies. I want to uplift women with quality posts featuring poetry, creative writing, and photography. I hope to increase my publication of posts when school resumes; right now, I am taking care of grandchildren and time is a premium.
Thank you everyone for your continued support and prayers.
