99 Wonderful blogs on the roll, 99 wonderful blogs
You read from one and when you’re done….98 wonderful blogs on the roll.
This weekend, I played “blog-ball” again. I was amazed and blessed richly by the incredible diversity – and non- wisdom, humor and all around delightful women of God I found in my journey.
When I was done, I was simply sitting back here at my “desk” chatting with Father…I was sharing with Him how amazing the time I live in is to me. I could never have dreamt up such a time. I shared with Him my concerns for poor Daniel, seeing this day and age where “many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall increase.” How astounded and frightened he must have been to have such a picture of today.
I shared my heart with Father about how pressed so many women were and how our pace is not slowing. As our children grow, it seems to increase. Truly, truly we are in a time of running to and fro. So many things demanding our time, so little time left over. Each moment becoming as a precious jewel in our days.
So, here is the prayer of my heart, “Lord, if I am going to continue to blog, please Father, make me relevant! Grant me wisdom and understanding of how best to serve those who may arrive here to read. Let me not take my own agenda into my blog, for Lord, that doesn’t serve anyone! Instead, make me Your mouthpiece….You used a donkey to speak for You once, please Lord do it again.”
In my prayer closet this morning, the Lord laid it heavily upon my heart that I was to ask you. So, for those of you who are reading here today, I ask: How can Javadawn best serve you? What topics do you want to discuss? What things are the most concerning to you? In your busy day, if you are taking the time to come and honor me with your presence here, what do you want to find when you arrive?
Now, dear ones, know that this question is not loaded and there are NO expectations in my heart for any specific answer. If the answer is, “Really, there are so many people already doing and saying all that you do and say.” Then HONESTLY, if there is nothing that I can do to serve in a specific way, I am thinking it best for me to sit back and be silent.
I am not saying this in a manipulative way at all and I hope you are able to truly hear my heart in this. My desire is to serve (and have an excuse each day to drink coffee….can’t write a Javadawn blog without coffee! Even if it is the bat poop kind. 😉 Which, is very good, I must admit.) so I turn to you – the ones I desire to serve – and I say, “Please, speak. My heart desires to hear from you.”
(Now of course, you understand that being the Clark-type that I am, I will likely pop on and just jabber every so often, but it will really just be “me” type stuff and nothing that would likely appeal to any but family. You’d be most welcome to read it, but know it would most likely serve as a sleep aid more than anything. OR of course, an excuse for YOU to drink a cup of coffee.) 😀
