I was inspired today to reevaluate my purpose and goals for this blog, and for my writing in general. Why am I writing? About what am I writing? For whom am I writing?
Bottom line, I'm writing to honor and glorify God. I am writing so that you can know my Jesus--the Son of God who is Lord of all.
And within that, I'm writing to encourage, build up, and inspire you--those for whom I write.
I want to write about a lot of things: homemaking, marriage, cooking, life. But I want the good news of Jesus Christ to be the common thread that runs through all of that. God is all-pervading in my life; he's the reason I am alive and he gives me purpose for life. I want my blog to reflect that.
I'm writing for you, and I'm writing for Jesus.
Maybe that sounds kind of corny. But in this little space on the internet, I have a voice, and I can use that voice to serve him: to praise him for who he is and what he has done, and to talk about the good news of his life, death, and resurrection.
I want to share a lot of things with you. I'm thankful for each of my readers, and yes, I hope my readership will grow. But I want that mostly so that I can tell all of you who read these words of mine, that Jesus loves you.
I want you to know that: Jesus loves you. So much. So much that he, the Son of God, came to earth as a human, lived, and died, and rose again, for you. He did this so you can have a relationship with him, have faith in him as your Lord and Savior, and spend eternity in heaven with him.
As a sinful person, I won't always accomplish what I set out to do on this blog. I might focus more on myself than my God. When that happens, I ask that you graciously look past my faults to the perfect God who, by his grace, I do my best to serve.
He has done everything for me, and he has done everything for you. Please rest in the knowledge today that the Creator and King of the universe--loves--you.
