2 Timothy 1:7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. NIV
Someone made a statement to me recently that I have no business writing a Christian blog. I cannot even tell you how much that one statement wrecked me. It made me doubt myself, my faith, my self-worth. Am I writing this blog for me or if is it truly God’s will for me right now?
I’m telling you, the ‘power of suggestion’ is powerful. I’ve made excuses, hem-hawed, been “too tired” to read my Bible when I laid down to sleep, and have slowly got out of the habits that I enjoyed. In return, I have been miserable. I have been out of balance. I know I’m not in God’s will, but I let a few words, said in anger, have power over me. In other words, Satan found exactly where I am weak and attacked me there.
God, I am filled with self-doubt and mind-blocks lately. I don’t have ideas about posts. I know why, though. I’m depending on me, instead of You and Your word to fill my heart. Thank You for letting my conscious bother me so much that I turned to You for guidance. I know that a simple blog post from me is not going to change the world, but it will change me. Hopefully, the change in me will reach someone who needs You.
