Those who have been following BBM may notice that I try to post at least twice a week (Mondays and Thursday). This week it didn't happen...and it really bothered me! It wasn't because I was too busy or forgot. In fact, the opposite was true. As much as I racked my brain, I couldn't come up with anything to say. I keep a notebook full of ideas and posts that I can pull from in times like these. Nothing seemed to jump out and scream, "Pick me!" So anxiously, I waited and prayed that God would show me what He wanted me to say.
Last night as I tried to fall asleep, I began to cry out to my Father for clarity, focus & direction. That's when He reminded me that HE is in control! He has given me the opportunity to write and has blessed this ministry with many faithful followers. His timing is perfect in all things, including posting. I understand the importance of keeping a schedule in regards to the ministry He has entrusted to me and strive to the best of my ability to keep that commitment.
However, I never want anything to be written that God hasn't directly laid on my heart to share.
When God called me to begin BBM, I committed to Him that I would write because He called me to and for no other reason! From the start, I've felt that God has great plans for BBM. If those plans included a few readers or many, the numbers and stats were not going to be my focus - writing the message that God has placed on my heart and called me to share is the ONLY reason I do this!
The fact that people have chosen to visit BBM and walk with me on this straight and narrow way is an honor I do not take lightly. It truly humbles me when I see new friends being added each day to this community. I am so thankful for each day that He allows the words I write to impact, encourage and challenge hearts and minds.
So, if that means that there are weeks like this one, with just a short note, then that's o.k. ♥
