I spent a few minutes today clicking back on some of the old blogs I have written over the past 3 years.
You know what I saw??
I saw the words that God had given me, time after time. New thoughts, new leading, new sense of Him as I've walked these days. I started blogging almost 3 years ago, and never thought it would turn into a long term sharing and fellowship in the way that it has. I am so blessed to share, and to read what you share, every day.
There were some of them I had long since forgotten, some that I should NOT have forgotten, some that were fresh again as I re-read them.
The other thing I saw was a message of encouragement, and the message was never mine. It was what God spoke to my own heart, which is always the clearest of all, when God first gives it to us, and we pass it along.
I am encouraged as I go back and read some of those blogs. Have you ever done that with your own writing?
It has become a picture of a journey... mine.
That may not sound like a big deal, but it is. Take a look at your own pages and see where you were 3 years ago, or even 2. What we wrote then was from our hearts, and it's worthy of another look... a reminder of God's faithfulness and leading .
It's a picture of the paths I've walked, and it's a prompting for the steps ahead.
And He continues to walk with me and to talk with me and to tell me I am His own...
