I’ve only been blogging for about two months now, and I’m already having an identity crisis about how I should be blogging. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved sharing with you what God has been showing me over the past two months, but I feel like in some ways I haven’t been writing a blog that I would want to read.
My posts have been REALLY long.
That’s not always a bad thing, but if you are a super busy person like I am, there isn’t enough time in the week to sit down and read another essay about how to live a better life. I’m a wife and a mom, and a full-time music teacher. Also, I lead a moms group Bible study, sing with our church’s praise team, and volunteer for other church events. I try to be a good friend and actually spend time with the people I like (crazy thought) all while trying to manage a household and go to the gym, since I actually pay to be a member there. Oh, and occasionally I like to sleep or watch “This Is Us”. Usually, I do the latter because who really needs sleep? Never mind the fact that I am also wanting to spend quality time with the Lord everyday through daily Bible reading and prayer. There’s a lot going on. Reading, let alone writing, a long blog entry is a lot to ask of a person.
So, last week I didn’t post. I took a week off to soul search and figure out what I want to post and what would I want to read? I’ve come up with something that may or may not surprise you: short honesty. I want to be able to share my past and current struggles in a short, concise way, so that you, the reader, can either relate to or know how to relate to for the sake of others. We aren’t all going to have the same stories in our lives, but every so often it’s nice to hear that we aren’t alone. On the flip side, it’s also nice to hear the victory stories of how God brought me through something, so He can bring you too. Yay! Hope!!!
That’s about it. Hopefully, I can post more often since they will be shorter and more honest, but life gets busy. I make no promises. Comment or share any insights you may have. I would love to know who is actually reading this thing. 🙂
