Over the last several months the company I’ve been employed at for 10 years has been steadily laying people off. These layoffs included two of my Spiritual big sisters. They were always conveniently located when I needed a Word in the middle of the day. So when I recently found myself in a crappy mood, magnified by the knowledge that I too would soon be unemployed, I needed an outlet, and blogging provided.
Blogging provided what I needed when I wanted to get something off my chest in a way that wouldn’t hurt anybody. Blogging provided an outlet for me when I was given a new PERSPECTIVE on the election and wanted to share it with someone; anyone. Blogging provided when I wanted to share my frustrations which are intertwined with my passion.
But that’s not all.
When I wanted top see beyond the political shenanigans and see the Character issues (Thanks Attorney mom) ignored by others, blogging provided. When Don posted his response to a friend in despair over his (ex) girlfriends cheating, just at the time I needed a laugh, blogging provided. When I found a pink motorcycle (Stacye) that reflected God’s healing favor at its finest; blogging provided. When I needed someone to say, keep on giving Potent Praise even in (or especially in) your trying times, blogging provided. When I needed a Word to help me stay focused on what God has called me to do (free spirit butterfly) blogging provided.
I’m not sure I fully understood the impact blogging would have on me from the receiving standpoint. The diversity in the Body of Christ is awesomely displayed through blogging. We can give a word in season to someone that’s weary through blogging. We can change the Spiritual atmosphere in another time zone through blogging. We can even empathize with a hurting brother or sister through blogging.
A season of loss and change in my life has become a season of increase and giving because God has provided blogging and you.
Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
Have a blessed week y’all and thanks
