How do you write your blog?

The question came up the other day…How do you write your blog?  Do you read really great commentaries and steal their work?  Agonize for hours what to say and how to say it? Write and re-write until its perfect? Do you dig up as many one liners as you can and put them all together? 

I contemplated that question because I had never really examined how or why I blog! 

I’ll start with the why?  I blog because of God.  No other reason other then God.  He has given me an overflow in my heart and mind.  So, Because I am not afforded an opportunity to stand before the multitudes and share all that God has done, I blog!  I’m not really sure if anyone reads it.  Well, that’s not true, some people do.  I know my mom does and I have a couple friends that follow my posts, but for the most part I look at this blog as a way to share my heart, mostly with God and for God.  What He has given I return in the form of the written word.  He gave and so I document it:)

How?  For the most part I just sit down and in about 3-9 minutes whatever was to be written is written and posted! Easy!  Seriously, whatever God has given in my heart is simply put to the computer screen and shared with you:)  I rarely LABOR over a post.  If I find myself laboring I stop because then I know it is a word that is coming from ME not from the Lord.  Now mind you, not every blog is full of heaven sent words, but most every blog comes from within  me, out of whatever God has done or is doing in my heart.  Thus the name, SHARING MY HEART

When I don’t post for a time period it usually means life has gotten away with me or I’m stuck in a God designed holding pattern.  He’s good like that…always telling me when to be quiet, when to sit with him, when to move.  If I am patient enough and obediently wait, HE is faithful to come.  He’s doing lots of stuff in me now days, so you should be hearing from me more often…whoever YOU may be:)

Storing up God’s goodness…to give it away,

VOW

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven….Ecclesiastes 3

~Much has taken place in my little life since I was ‘Trusting God’ on May 22nd.  And whereas, I have not been freed to share the details, I will share with you the concept. 

When life throws curves and things seem uncertain, remember that God is in control and as sure as there are season’s in a year, there are season’s in your life.  With each season, no matter how unclear it seems at the moment, there is a purpose under heaven.  I have come to know and understand that it is in the Winter that Spring is conceived.  And after each winter the sun does indeed shine again, the snow does melt, the tears do dry and the fruit does come. 

It is in the season’s you don’t understand at the moment, that often hold the most purpose and often give life to your future.  The seed needs to die in the ground to give life to the plant.  So must the seasons in our lives bring certain death, that life may come again.

Life has come again for me.  It started with a vow.  A vow to my God that I trusted Him to do the inconceivable.  To repair the unrepairable and to bring life from death.  There surely was a purpose, there surely was a plan, there surely will be joy after sorrow.  I am convinced of this! 

Here is a video of the song that reflects my heart.  It captured me a while back but it was just this last week that it became the song of my heart!  I’m not completely fond of the video but just play the song, close your eyes and enjoy. Surrender all to the God who makes a purpose out of every season, no matter what comes your way.
