It's nice to be popular.....

....but it's more popular to be nice!!!
(that's the only quote I could think of that went along with my topic for today)

I've had my blog for a couple of years now....and as far as hasn't grown like some out there have. As much as I really don't want to admit it.....yes.....that has bothered me!

Hey....please don't fault me....I'm only human!!!

I was so excited one day last week that I had over seventy people take a peek at my blog....until a precious friend told me she had over 700 one day....and after she was featured on another blog....well, let's just say she refused to tell me how many hits she she could spare my feelings!!!

As I've pondered and thought and prayed about this situation....I've come to realize...if I'm gonna "blog for God"....then I can't obsess over those things....which was the reason I turned off my comments as something that I felt led to give up during the season of Lent.

And again....after pondering the follower thing for a's what I decided.
I do want followers....but my MAIN REASON should be that y'all out there....are reading things that God places on my write.....for HIM.
And...if I'm doing what HE asks....and you like what you read.....and want to read more.....and sign up as a follower....then, you're not really following're following something that the Lord inspires me to's actually the One making an impact on your heart!!!

Plus...once the Holy Spirit made this clear to me...then, my followers started to increase...but it took getting the focus off of "me"....
....and onto "HIM"!!!

AMEN...and AMEN!!!

Yes....I'm learning a lot in our ladies Bible study....not just about the negative things I say to myself....but also on things of this world where I tend to place too much emphasis!!!

Don't you just love it when the Holy Spirit gives you one of those "ah-hah" moments....and you feel like you've just taken a breath of fresh air....or a burden has been lifted?!?!?, too!!!

Ain't God good?
Oh, yes HE is!!!

Mark 4:18-20 (NLT)
The seed that fell among the thorns represents others who hear God’s word, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the worries of this life, the lure of wealth, and the desire for other things, so no fruit is produced. And the seed that fell on good soil represents those who hear and accept God’s word and produce a harvest of thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times as much as had been planted!” 

Blessings to you!!!

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
