A little over 9 months ago, just after our youngest turned 1, I received a gift from a friend. In her card to me she wrote:
Bethany, I believe the words you write will open the door for many to experience God for the first time.
Inside the card was this blog template and my writing space for the next three years.
Don’t even think for a second that I dropped everything and immediately rearranged my schedule to take on this gift. Oh no. For many weeks the card sat on my dresser. Visibly present; physically untouched.
You see, I wasn’t sure how public I wanted these heart-carved words of mine to appear. All I could see was a very public open door, not Who I needed to adore.
As bloggers, writers and Christians, we do what we do for God only. We put our best on the line for His glory. But sometimes, we can get our efforts twisted around just a bit. We must adore God with our humble offering first. We are true to the unique design that He molded deep within us first – no cookie-cutters allowed.
To my beloved readers and encouragers – I love you, but God is in control of this online space. Expect the unexpected. May you find this door an easy avenue to adore Him on a personal level.
Where is your door? Where are you leading people using the treasures you have been given?
You are a door to adore Him. Stay open long enough to allow visitors to pass through your words to His Word.[tweetthis]You are a door to adore Him. Stay open to allow visitors to pass through your words to His Word.[/tweetthis]
This will be my last post for 2014 and what an incredible year this has been! God is opening up doors for writing and speaking that I simply never could have imagined. From our family to yours, Merry Christmas and thank you for celebrating a new beginning with us!
