Day 6 of 31 Days of Connecting
I’ve been sucked in, again. Sucked into looking at my stats, checking out my followers, spending far too much time (in my opinion) “plugging” my blog when in reality, I don’t think this is what God wants me to do.
I’ve become concerned about my image over the content of my writing.
I’ve become upset over lack of response, when God wants me to respond to Him.
I’ve become preoccupied with this blog, instead of focusing on the work He has most definitively called me to.
When I joined 31 days, I joined to:
- grow as a writer
- write every day (so that I learn to write every day – AKA grow as a writer)
- explore what it looks like to connect with God, self, and others (because it is very connected to my book)
- join a community of writers on the interwebs
As I joined #write31days, I also joined Twitter. Twitter. The social media platform I said I would never do and really have no interest in… maybe I’ll find it beneficial… maybe.
I have also compromised in spending FAR too much time on this blog – and it has not been worth it. I have not gained and I don’t think you have either.
Also… also, I have lost the vision of sharing myself with you. My reader. And so, I’m sorry.
I do plan on continuing on in this 31 days of Connecting. But I hope to bring to you a bit more soul. A bit more of me.
I really want to bring people closer to Jesus. But I know that unless they see me walking with Him, it’s really nothing but words on a page.
I hope for more for you. More for us.
May God be with us.
I lose my track of my mission in Christ because I get caught up in a popularity contest. What about you? Where do you lose track of your walk with Christ?
