Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
I stayed up late last night glued to this computer. I have been feeling like my blog needs a little makeover. There are so many wonderfully designed blogs that I follow and mine is lacking a little in the bling. I sat here and searched trying to figure out what to do, but I went to bed with nothing.
Of course then I could not sleep, I was thinking about this little blog and I couldn't get it out of my mind. When I finally pushed it out long enough to pray, I realized something. . . Maybe it isn't just my blog in need of a makeover, maybe it is me. God was convicting me and sleep was not going to come until He and I had a little conversation.
You see, it has been way to easy for me lately to rush through my morning devotions to get on this computer. I love to sit here and read and write, but I was putting it before Him. My days have not been going as smoothly as I would like (remember yesterday's post about the Stinky Feet). Yesterday was a Stinky Feet kind of day.
I heard it loud and clear last night. Focus on Me because it is not about you. I really do know that and I remind myself of it often, but I don't always follow His plan.
After my prayer time I started to think about this blog. Yes, I would love to make it more visually appealing and hopefully I will find the right person to help me out in that area. However, I started to think about why I am blogging in the first place. I started this blog to share my faith journey and believe me it is not always pretty. It is seldom organized. It is a little rough around the edges. A lot like my blog. I wanted this blog to touch others, not because it is pretty, but because it spoke to their hearts. It is the "real" me and I am pretty plain and simple.
So maybe as I refocus my mind, my heart and my priorities I will start to see myself transformed. And who knows, maybe as I pull myself together my blog will keep getting better, too.
