The Wisdom to Blog

What began as a discipline has become an obsession. I can’t think of anything to write today, but I can’t bear to not post something in my blog. Sundays are the only day I don’t feel the compulsion to post something, anything. Except a new Verse of the Week, which I change on Sunday.

I don’t want my post to be just anything. I want it to be something that inspires, encourages, or instructs at least one reader. I want to come back to my blog later and find a comment or that I have had multiple page views, to know that someone is reading.

Maybe that is why I’m having writer’s block today. Maybe this has become too much about me, and not enough about God. I try to make it about God. Did I really write that? “I try?” This may be the problem in a nutshell. I try instead of rely on God. Hmmm.

“For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.” Romans 11:36.

I cannot write from my own wisdom and the well of my own knowledge. Even the apostle Paul did not write from his own understanding. Repeating what Paul had taught, Peter said,

“Bear in mind that our Lord’s patience means salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him.” 2 Peter 3:15.

I’ve been so busy today I haven’t had a chance to stop and ask God for His wisdom. Or more accurately, I haven’t taken the opportunity to do so. I know that when I do ask, He is faithful to keep His promise to provide. “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” James 1:5.

The wisdom of God is a wonderful thing, greater than any wisdom of man. And it is free for the asking. It is what Solomon asked for, and his reward was wisdom and so much more. Have you stopped to ask God for wisdom today?

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. Thank you. I needed to be reminded that wisdom is one of the many things that God will supply if we just ask. I have some decisions to make that will have an impact on not only the next few months, but also the next 4 or 5 years. It would mean a lot if you could remember me in your prayers.

    • Theresa, You are welcome. It is always God’s will that we act with wisdom, so when we pray for wisdom we cannot help but be in His will. I will certainly keep you in my prayers that you would make the right decisions with God’s help. Peace, Linda

  2. Linda,

    That writer’s block was defenitely for a reason…The message was for me i think….As though God was telling me..blogging is not to show your commitment towards writing..but it should be all about writing what God wants to convey…and for that you need to sit before the Lord and ask His wisdom….Thank you Linda..for speaking out..

    God Bless,

  3. Linda,

    When I started out, with the excitement of a new thing, I also spend much time…writing and writing. Maybe not about myself, but all the same writing. A few weeks ago, the Lord put a stop in the way I think as I approaching writing. Its not about me…but about Him. If I trust Him fully, He will do only what only He as God can do without me putting too much of an effort. God told me, He is not looking for my sucess but rather for my faithfulness. And so…here I am learning to lean on Him and I know you are too.



  4. Linda, you did really good today. You got His message out to me and I thank you. Sometimes I question my whole involvement in the blog world for the exact reasons you stated. I don’t want it to be about me. I want it to be about Him. Guess it’s a daily challenge we all face. So thank you so much for going ahead and posting today and letting Him have His say. God bless you and keep you! deb

    • Charis, I think if God and His wisdom don’t scare us a bit, we are worshipping a false god. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.” Psalm 111:10a. Peace, Linda
