There were some pretty powerful posts this month, and also some new bloggers I am going to introduce you to. As always, this post is not to make anyone feel like they need to “make the list” these are just the posts that really spoke to me this month.
Dorissa Vanover– The Day Unfolds– Dorissa shares a beautiful truth about time management. A lot of us get caught up on the “rush” or “busyness” of our schedules. We need to get things done NOW, and we better have goals to accomplish. She shares how God spoke to her during the times of quiet when she didn’t know what she should do next. And God taught her a lot.
Amazing Tangled Grace– How Great Thou Art– I really like this post. There’s a ton of different scripture talked about and connected.
Walking On Unsteady Ground– The Thing Beneath The Thing – This is a pretty convicting post. She talks about how not one of us is “always” on par with God. We do not always lean on Him in the way we should. She shares how going to church a pastor spoke to her heart and what God opened her eyes to.
Grace Abounds–What Have I’ve Been Putting My Identity In – Rebekah is extremely honest on who and what she was putting her focus on. This post really spoke to me because I also lost focus on other people and things, and when I do, like she shared, it really takes a lot on my soul.
Comeback Pastor– One Phone Call– Pastor Winters shares some amazing phone calls that showed him God was providing and listening to him. If you want some encouragement that God is with us, read this post.
My Way Home Life– I Laugh At Your Plans- This is a wonderful post about how even when our plans do not go the way we want God can give us a beautiful perspective to keep in mind.
Lost And Found- A very moving story of how God provided with the challenge of trusting Him to provide.
Retrospective Lily– Teach Your Children The Fundamentals Of Christianity– Lily did a wonderful job explaining why it is important we teach kids and teens about the Bible. To help them understand the stories and the people of the Bible. The promises that God gives us, and the promises He laid long ago. Often times teenagers struggle with faith (this is my opinion not Lily’s) because they do not have the right walk with Him. As Lily shares, they grow up and when people poke holes through their beliefs they do not know what to do.
Building Treasures In Heaven– Lily wrote another amazing post about our treasures in Heaven. She actually did a sermon on this and condensed the sermon into a post. It was clear, and very well done!
BLOGGER OF THE MONTH – (I don’t think I’ve ever shared this many posts from one blogger in a month, but seriously Efua’s posts this month have been powerful and much needed.) Grace Over Pain– Who Are You?– Efua shares a great post encouraging us as Christian bloggers to really make sure we are focused on God and giving Him time. As a Christian blogger, maybe some of us feel like blogging does not make much of a darkness, but think of it from the perspective of darkness. The more light of Christ we shine the more potential others have of growing stronger with Christ, and perhaps accepting Him as their Lord and Savior. We need to be on guard at all times, including with our blogging. That we are not led astray, deceived, or taken advantage of because we were vulnerable.
Stop Aborting The Processes– Another great post which I find encouraging. It can be hard to be in a season of waiting or trial but we would not enjoy the season of harvest had we not waited. Powerful stuff!!!
Is the Bible sexist?– Very powerful post giving more clarity to a past post Efua wrote previously. She brings up examples in the Bible people may struggle with and gives a proper context to help understand the passage.
When The Curtain Falls– What a convicting post! One in which discusses a hard topic, death. Bearing the question what will we leave behind?
NEW BLOGGER– Daily Bible Bytes–Remembering Childhood Friends– Nitin shares a post that connects both a personal story and tying it to scripture, which is not always easy to do. This post deals with friendship and compares one of the most famous friendships in the Bible. Well done!
NEW BLOGGER- Silvered Belle– Why Silvered Belle?– This is an introductory post and what a post! Candace speaks about how she grew up having issues and not feeling content. This post explores how she met Jesus and turned her life over to Him.
I’m Not In Control Pt. 1 – Candace shares how God provided for her in times she struggled. This is a post I know so many of you will relate to because I’ve read your stories. Check this post out.
