Have you checked yours stats lately? How do you rate in the public eye? How many Facebook or Instagram friends do you have? Have we all grown a little crazy about ourselves with social media and blogging? I have to ask myself what the true reality of my purpose is in writing a daily blog. Am I doing it to bring comfort to others, to share God with them, to let them know that God is their best friend and that He loves them so much that He gave the ultimate sacifice? Am I truly doing His work or am I looking for self-gratification?

I think we must examine ourselves daily to see the true motivation behind what we do. As soon as we put ourselves in the driver’s seat and forget the One who is driving, we’re setting ourselves up for disaster. Doing the right thing for the wrong reason is an easy trap to fall into, especially with the way we measure success today. Giving medals for simply participating in something, doesn’t set the right standard. Expecting more pay for actually doing your job shouldn’t be an option. Thinking we are better than others because of what WE do is the lowest form of narcissism. Today, let’s remember who we are – Forgiven, restored, children of the only Almighty King.

Dear Heavenly Father, You are the giver of all things. You alone deserve the glory. I am merely an instrument – a vessel – to carry your message of love to others. Help me remember that. Guide my use of the right words. Be my inspiration in all that I do and lead me in the Way everlasting. Amen!



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

    I’m glad to know that I am not the only one who examines and considers my purpose for blogging, before I press ‘publish.’ I know that God is using me, for His purpose, and when I don’t send out a blog, my blogger friends will often check on me and remind me that they miss me and the message. I need this kind of support and encouragement, and I’m sure you do also, Kathy💕
    Thanks for your faithful posts…I depend on them!!
