I'm so excited that Thankful Thursday is back here at Spiritually Unequal Marriage for the month of April. I put up my TT posts around 5:oo PM PT on Wednesday so the gals who live on the other side of the world, can join the fun while it's still Thursday where they live.
Sometimes we spend a significant amount of time pouring ourselves into other people, writing on our blogs, teaching at church, just so that we might help one person discover what we already know..... That Jesus can change anything, redeem anything, save anyone. He can restore joy and purpose, hope and love.
Often we don't see the results from our hours of efforts. We never see the fruit. But on rare occasions God allows us to see what all of our writing, talking, working, serving has done for a single life.
This past week, I have receive not one but several emails from women who have read our book or who are regular readers here and they have shared with me and Dineen that our efforts are helping. They are finding hope, and a renewed strength to press forward in their marriage.
THAT is why I write. That is why I continue to share my story. THAT is what brings honor to the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you are wondering if no one reads your blog, no one cares about your life, no one responds to your efforts, I have a few words for you.
You make a difference to someone. The enemy wants to discourage you. Reject that lie. You keep following the Lord's direction and trust Him to send that one individual who needs your words at that exact moment.
I'm so thankful that God started me on this crazy, harebrained journey called blogging. What a fantastic ride it's been. I would be the least likely of women to start a blog.... Go figure. God ALWAYS knows what He's doing though. I'm SO glad I follow Him.
What are you thankful for? Lynn
