Don’t give up!

perseverance don't give upIt’s been nearly two months since I started blogging. Blogging is something that I had thought about doing for a long time but I struggle to write. I wrote An imaginary letter and posted it on Facebook and was encouraged by the feedback I received and so I took the plunge and started to blog.

I am so glad I started and I am even more glad that I am overcoming my anxiety about writing. I know that my grammar and spilling (yes this is a deliberate mistake!) are not the best but I’m glad that people are picking up on the heart of what I am trying to say.

I’ve found that writing most of what I have has been quite therapeutic and I have enjoyed it. I’m astounded by how many people are reading my blog (seriously, do you have nothing better to do?) Social media and in particular Facebook make it possible to connect with so many people. Some days my blog is showing more Facebook shares than I or my Facebook friends have shared. Some of you who I have never met have been blessed by what I have written and for that I thank God.

I’ll finish with these few thoughts for you:

God’s power is made perfect in weakness.

If like me there is something you would like to do but your fears and worries are getting in the way, then why not have a go. What’s the worst that can happen? I would always rather talk with someone verbally than write something, but God’s power is being seen in my weakness. So don’s give up! Call on God and ask him for his guidance to lead you forward and for his strength to help you endure.

It’s amazing who you can connect with.

It really is a small world and it’s good for us all to expand our horizons.

You don’t have to say anything, but it’s nice when you do.

A few people recently have said how much they have enjoyed my blog and have also apologized for not commenting. I actually don’t mind if you don’t comment, but it is encouraging when you do. I wonder how much we go through life missing on opportunities to encourage those around us. If someone means so much to us then why not tell them? Go on, stop reading this and tell them.
