I'd Prefer Not To Blog Today
Can you imagine a more rancid attitude?
Apparently, I've forgotten that, because Christ purchased me with His own blood, I no longer own myself. He has given me this blog, as well as a certain gift for writing, as my primary means of serving Him, and I must recognize His grace in trusting me to blog for Him. And because I blog for Him, I must do so faithfully, even when my flesh would rather fritter away time on less profitable endeavors.
So I will blog, even when I'd rather not do so, because I desire to serve the Lord. I don't know how He uses the words I type. In fact, the impact of these posts really isn't my concern. The Lord merely calls me to faithfully carry out this simple responsibility that He has given me, asking me to regard it as a ministry to be done as consistently as possible. He will use the posts as He sees fit, touching hearts and minds according to His purposes. Whatever my selfish flesh prefers, my redeemed spirit rejoices that the Lord has given me blogging as a vehicle for His Kingdom.
