Refocusing

Recently my good friend Justin Nale blogged about blogging for the glory of God. After thinking through some things, he changed his blog and refocused his blogging. Actually, I have wondered for quite some time why I was still blogging. The truth is blogging became more of a burden than a joy. However, there are occasions that I really like to blog and things I think would be very helpful for others. Therefore, I am redirecting my focus. As I work through exactly how this will be, I'll be sure to post. My guess is that I will focus primarily on the idea from the Great Commission and what it means to 'make disciples of all nations'. This will include a focus on missions and discipleship. We'll see how that goes.

I think I understand what you're saying. That unless we have something to say, blogging can become a dreary duty. And having visited literally thousands of blogs over the last couple of years, I can say that some of them look too much like the writer was vainly searching for something...anything...to fill some space. :-)

But, of course, Christian's can have lots to say about various aspects of God's truth, and about their experience of living the Christian life.

For myself, I decided to capitalize on research of the last 40 years or so into English hymnody. It has resulted in a daily blog that always has things to share about our hymns and gospel songs. I invite you to check out Wordwise Hymns.

Robert,

That's exactly right! There are thousands of blogs out there, and many have great things to say. At times I found myself in the category of just trying to 'fill some space'. My readership isn't high, but I think there are a few people who read my blog and enjoy at least some of what I write. If I can use it for the glory of God and to minister to others, then I'd like to keep it up. If not, then I would rather not waste anyone's time and allow them to read those who actually do have things to say! :) Thanks for stopping by. I'll check you Wordwise Hymns.

I like your new look on your blog! I am seeing that a lot of people are changing their blog for the better.

I do pray the best for you for this wonderful blog. I am trying to keep up with you.

I am reworking on my blog too.
