Some hearts need to be opened because they lack in action for God, but for self gain. Open your hearts to God and those who look different, because He created them too.
I believe each and every one of us decided to become bloggers for many reasons. Rather as a hobby, purpose, boredom, to challenge ourselves, or a vision from God. Each of these reason are all great reasons. Though I would like to discuss one in particular.
If you are a Christian Blogger then it is not about You. It is about your unyielding love for God, and sharing and spreading God’s word with others. Before starting make sure you understand why you decided to blog in the first place. We are on a world-wide web base. There is no limit on how many blogs or posts that one can write or receive.

Let your love (heart) be a reflection of Christ!
You as a Christian blogger should not feel obligated or look at it as a forced obligation. It’s having a willing spirit and love for God. You should love it, because you love God. There are no limitations on God, other than the ones we place! I believe our busy-ness can be habit-forming too.
Whatever, you do, do it with a passion and a purpose. As for followers, Jesus turns no followers away. Yet, some of you choose who is worthy and who is not. I’m glad God isn’t this way. He accepts all His followers, and those who seek Him. Man says no, I will choose who I want. But God says, “allow me to expand your territory because I will equip you with all you need! He doesn’t put one Christian above another. We are on different levels based on our obedience and faith to God. We are given a choice to walk in His will and not our own. We are all His children.
If you choose to blog then blog and enjoy it. If you choose to not blog then just don’t. No judging! God does not force His love on you so why should you on others. Complaining, does nothing but plant seeds of negativity, and can hinder someone else’s blessing. If you are tired then take a break. If you don’t enjoy it anymore then perhaps it was just for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Move on to something more enjoyable for you.
Because truthfully it is not about you, or me but all about Christ!
There is no judging, or need to feel guilty. However, if you feel guilty then perhaps God is dealing with you. Seek God in everything. Understand that there are souls seeking truth and there are those who need encouragement. If you are a Christian blogger, then pray and ask God to guide you so you that you are being an example to others. Christian blogger is a Christian who blogs in general. But if your blog is spiritually focused on God’s word then what will you decide? It becomes your debt to Christ! The price was paid so freely give yourself to the King.
A lot of people get tired of going to work everyday, but you don’t just quit your job. You push forward because you must pay bills and live. As Christians, we have a duty as Christians for a Savior, who died for our sins (not His). Surely, Jesus comes before all things. In the natural eyes you are blogging. In the spiritual eyes you are ministering, teaching, and fellowship with your neighbor (those who cross paths with you).
I, don’t count or get caught up in the numbers. If a post is for someone then it is for them. If it is not then, for someone else. I will be led by God and God alone. If you respond to someone’s page then so be it. If not then that’s okay too. If you find a post or blog that ministers to you, awesome! But what do your thoughts speak, your motives say? Perhaps someone stepped on your toes, not intentionally!
What I mean by that is they wrote something and when you read it, it spoke to you, it convicted you! Rather do a self-examination you got angry, or revengeful and decided to attack in the natural to God’s messenger instead of receiving it , and correcting your actions. What truth spoke to you in that post about yourself? It wasn’t just sent to you, but others too. So why did you get angry, and not others? Do a self check before you jump to conclusions and tell on yourself. God speaks to His messengers and we are to be obedient.
Know your limits, in the natural. However, in the spirit rim there are no limits. Blog from the heart, not for popularity, numbers, or competition! Matthew 18:20 For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.” Don’t be discouraged or obligated. If you feel overwhelmed then ask God what you should do, not man! If you do you could be stuck in the middle. Life sometimes gets busy, and we start to put off things that are important. Like our Heavenly, fathers business.
