The Truth About Bloggers {At Least This One}


Today I'm blessed to be sharing at Coffee for the Soul, a new daily devotional site that started in November. Sometimes as a blogger it's easy to get caught up in writing about yourself, so writing devotionals has been good for me. It forces me to stop thinking about me and instead focus solely on Jesus.

Except this morning as I got up to read my post one last time, I found that it was completely and totally about me.

I actually wrote this post over a week ago, edited it, scheduled it to publish, and walked away. I got busy with life and forgot about it.

But this morning as I poured over the words I had written, God once again ministered to my heart.

I'm tired. Really tired. Maybe it's being 33 weeks pregnant. Maybe it's having two toddlers. Maybe it's just the cold temperatures and being stuck inside all day.

Or maybe it's more than that. Lately, I find my life feeling so chaotic. I just want to schedule, organize, and plan everything. I want my life to fit in neat little boxes, and instead it comes in the form of overflowing laundry baskets and backed up sinks (yes...sinks...plural).

However, this morning as I read the devotional I was once again reminded that even in the messiest, busiest times in life I can have rest. I just have to make myself stop long enough to embrace it.

Sometimes it's easy to look into a blogger's online life and think they have it all together. But the truth is, I think God's given me this opportunity to write, not because I have anything profound to say but because I need to listen more than most.

And really, it's hard to argue with yourself.

So if you get a chance I'd love for you to stop by Coffee for the Soul and hear what God is saying to me today. Who knows? Maybe you need to hear it too.

  1. Great reminder. Living in the age of 'social media' it is so important to stay grounded in truth (His Word). It's easy to look at other people's lives and think they have it all together! But in reality most people only post the good stuff :) God bless!

  2. Thanks for sharing this resource! I'm signing up. I've been away from blogging for a while but I think this is a great way for me to get connected as well as spiritually-focused. I can't believe you're almost done with your pregnancy! Hang in there :)

    1. Gina, it's good to hear from you! I hope you enjoy the devotionals. I've really enjoyed the getting to know the writers. They are all great women of faith!
