Last week, Graceful Gaines turned four. For the past four years I have written in this space. Each year when it comes time to renew my domain name, I prayerfully ask God if I should continue. My hope has always been that sharing parts of my journey will encourage my readers to reflect upon where they are, where they have been and where they would like to go. My aim is to challenge the people who read these words to actively seek God in the world around them, to walk closer with Jesus and to ultimately reflect Him back to a dark world who desperately needs Him.
In the past four years here, my faith has grown tremendously as well. When I have to write about my faith, I have to consciously think about it. In order to write about prayer, I have to pray a lot.
We all wonder if we can make a difference in the world. We all wonder if it’s possible to share Jesus with others. Most of us feel ill equipped to do so. After all, most of us aren’t Bible scholars or preachers, right?
As I write this, my tiny little corner of the internet has had 32,696 views. By social media standards, that’s not a lot. But, I think it’s a start. I will never know how many of those page views may plant a seed. I will never know how many of those seeds will sprout.
Faith doesn’t work that way. I am simply called to plant and you are too. It may be in a completely different capacity than what I do. Your calling is completely unique to you, but you are called. We all are.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this blog. Thanks for the comments. Thanks for the Facebook likes and thanks for the shares. Thanks for encouraging me as I prayerfully try to encourage you.
Graceful Gaines has been an amazing blessing to me and I pray it has been a blessing to you too. I hope it continues to bless us and help us to glorify the awesome God we serve.
Have an awesome day!
