I have a confession to make: lately I have become a little absorbed with numbers. My focus has been to watch my "reach" and try to build my following. I have been seduced by, I'm not sure what; lust of fame, worldly success, popularity. This hasn't affected my writing, but it has affected my heart and peace. It's the main focus of my thoughts. And yet it was never my goal, in the beginning, to make a successful business out of this, or become famous. My goal has always been to help others and serve God with my writing. It is His project and it will grow as He wants regardless of my efforts, as is evident since I have reputedly done everything I can and should have a large following now. But my efforts have resulted in only a slight increase. The words of my post a few weeks ago about biblical success have been ringing in my ears, so to speak. Biblical success is not based on numbers, it is based on following God, doing His will.

I have learned my lesson. I will focus on writing what God wants me to write and not worry about or even watch the numbers. I am confident that regardless of how popular my writing is, God will use it to reach whomever He wills.

If you could pray for me to keep that focus and resist my pride and the temptation to pursue worldly success, I would be grateful. I also would appreciate feedback. I have been writing for over a year, but rarely receive any comments. If you could let me know what you think, even just of my blog/focus/writing in general, or of specific topics/articles, I would appreciate it.

Thank you for being faithful to my blog!

                    For His glory,
