I was reading someone else’s blog the other day…and down near the bottom of the page, following the man’s bio…there was a counter. It was like one of the counters that shows the number of visits to a website. Anyway, this counter was for the man’s blog, but it was not counting visitors. It said something like: ” I have blogged for 4320 consecutive days.” The number in the sentence was the counter. I was counted numb! You see, I have trouble blogging once a month! This guy has done it every single day for over eleven years!!! He must have lots more to say than me. Wow! I was and am impressed. That is dedication. I also understand that this most likely is the man’s main job. But seriously…every single day for over eleven years…? Discipline at a new level for sure…all from the comfort of home! 🙂
It got me thinking though…what is the daily counter on my blog with The Lord? I’m not talking about updating webpages or even writing in a journal to GOD every day…although I have, many do, and it is a great spiritual discipline. A blog is defined as a regularly updated web page written in conversational or informal style. Well, how about looking at our lives as the webpage that needs to be updated every single day through a conversation and devotion time with The Lord? You might say that the “informal” part means…to the best of each and everyone’s ability. I believe Jesus said, “With all the heart, soul, mind and strength…and that is what I mean by the best of our ability. There is really no right or wrong to this type of blogging. It is the daily part that is critical. We can all “informally” and “conversationally” give HIM our very best each day. A daily blog might include prayer, reading Scripture, writing in a journal, reading other spiritual works, loving someone outside your inner circle, taking a walk in nature, or a whole host of other activities. The important part is daily. Every single day. Blog with The Lord.
Even The Lord Himself took time to blog each day. I know that there were no computers back then; so, not on a webpage, but on His own soul. The Bible does in fact record many instances of Jesus going off to pray by Himself with The Father and The Holy Spirit. The Bible doesn’t say that is was every single day, but then again, how could He not always be about His Father’s business? So, I say, in a spiritual way, He was blogging. Perhaps we should follow in His steps in that regard as well. Start your own counter today. Blessed blogging! 🙂
