I have posted 525 blogs in the last eight years. This site has been seen by over 20,000 people, which is humbling. I do realize there are a lot of bloggers who have far exceeded these numbers. New followers come along every week, and now are in the hundreds. That’s doing great considering Jesus only had 12. But I’m tired.
There is one stat that keeps me going. This blog has been read in 120 countries out of 167. (Depends on whose list of countries you agree with.) Why does this one fact affect me so much? When I was a child, growing up in church, I heard the great commission:
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Mat. 28:19 (KJV)
I wanted to do this, but I remember thinking, “How? I’m just a kid in Oklahoma!” I underestimated God, and of course I had no knowledge of the Internet, but in the late 60s very few did as it was still in its prehistoric state.
The fact that this blog could potentially educate someone in every country around the world about God, and the love of God keeps me going. As well as some have told me these blogs have changed their life. All I can say is, “Only God!”
Every post starts with the same question, “God, what do you want to say to your people?” Then I do what I can to hear his reply and then write out that message. I thank each and every one of you for taking the time to read these blogs. I pray for God to make himself real in your life.
