Writing 1500 blogs has taught me that I know far less than I once thought I knew. Writing blogs has been like a cave where each passage leads to a bigger and more spectacular room. Writing blogs has taught me how compared to the vastness of God, I know very little indeed.
Writing 1500 blogs has taught me to be faithful. Through countless times where I did not feel like taking the time to write a blog, during times of sickness, turmoil and being so busy I could not see straight; staying faithful to writing blogs has taught me the true essence of what it means to be faithful.
Writing 1500 blogs has allowed me to grow in ways I never dreamed possible. Without question, I have learned more the past five years writing blogs than I did the previous 35 years (including three years in Bible School). Writing blogs has forced me to grow up and quit acting like a spoiled child.
Writing 1500 blogs has made me organize my thoughts, write with clarity and communicate with love. It is indeed painful for me to look back at some of my early blogs when it took me nearly 2000 words to say something I have learned to say in 500. Being verbose does not guarantee being right.
Writing 1500 blogs has enabled me to fulfill a lifelong desire of having a few close friends and a host of acquaintances. I certainly feel like the luckiest man alive to have the support and prayers of so many beautiful people. It is amazing how God has used blogs to knit hearts together in His love.
A couple of years ago I made the decision that I was going to devote all my writing, ministering and giving to Christian Blog. I ceased writing on a secular site and funneled all my energy, passion and giving to this site. Never once have I wavered in my commitment to this site and its owner.
There are no words in my vocabulary to express my gratitude for this site and what it has enabled me to do. For nearly 30 years I had wanted to write what I felt about God and living for Him, but I never felt inspired to write a book. This site has turned out to be my “book”, complete with 1500 chapters.
I have been called crazy for devoting so much to Christian Blog. Well, if I were so crazy, why am I so blessed as I continue to share my heart a few times a week? If I were so crazy, how has God taken such good care of Blest and me? I may be crazy but I am blessed.
Thank you for reading my blogs and pushing past areas of disagreement to see my heart. Thank you for all the times your prayers have sustained me and your loving support has inspired me. Thank you for being true friends, prayer partners and people who get blessed reading what I have to say. You humble me and inspire me to continue striving to be a Blessing 2 You!
