A Blogger’s Prayer

Yahweh, You alone are my God, not Google


Jesus, You alone are my Savior, not site meters


Holy Spirit, You alone are my Comforter, not comments….


So be it, today, yesterday, and every post to come.


This is my prayer I have made on earth and over this keyboard…


Let it be ratified in heaven.


Amen.

(This prayer comes from the blog A Holy Experience. Follow the link to read more).

This prayer is so powerful and expresses my intentions as a blogger. Honestly, I have had to search my heart and rid myself of self-seeking ideas. When I made the choice to blog, I can honestly tell you it was not to encourage women. I made the choice to blog because I wanted an outlet. I idolized bloggers sitting in their PJs with a big cup of coffee, writing about helpful tips and family. I talked with folks about the amount of followers I would need to make money so that I could have supplemental income. I stalked other blogs and focused on what I could do to have a better template.

When I stumbled on to A Holy Experience and started reading what it meant to be an “Upside Down Blogger” I was convicted. A conviction so strong that even now as I type, my stomach is in knots. A realization that my intentions were my own and not HIS. From that point on, my prayer has been to be used as a vessle to love and encourage women. I will not obsess over followers, advertisments and the idea of working from home. I will focus only on being used to serve others and glorify him.
