Since the gospel is the stickiest story ever told, committing to write a blog is one of the most powerful channels to get that story heard. ~@stickyJesus
In the beginning, the future is a pristine expanse that yawns before us.
And we step out into it.
Sometimes the way is clear, and we journey straight.
Sometimes we backtrack.
Sometimes we run in circles.
Yet in the midst is God.
He protects us.
He walks with us.
Sometimes He even carries us.
Our lives unfold–and sometimes unravel.
He smooths wrinkles.
Snips loose threads.
Stitches torn places.
Weaves a story that begs to be told.
Blogging is simply a new way of telling stories. ~Brian Baily, author of The Blogging Church, in @stickyJesus, p. 154
And there is a hunger for these stories.
For our stories.
For His story.
Sometimes I wonder if writing another word will really mean anything to anyone but me.
But then someone says that something I wrote really touched them. Or that what I said was exactly what they needed that day.
Or they say something like this.
And so I keep on blogging.
And find rest in the journey.
Let the redeemed of the LORD tell their story—
those he redeemed from the hand of the foe, Psalm 107:2 (NIV)
God is magnificent; he can never be praised enough.
There are no boundaries to his greatness.
Generation after generation stands in awe of your work;
each one tells stories of your mighty acts.
Your beauty and splendor have everyone talking;
I compose songs on your wonders.
Psalm 145:3-5 (Message)
Note: This chapter also includes a “blogging 101 section” with hints, tips, and resources for starting and maintaining a blog.
Linking up with Michelle Sarabia and friends as we walk through this book together.
And with Bonnie as we journey toward rest.
