img_9364Lord, what is Your will concerning this blog? What do You want me to do with it? I’m so discouraged. Is there something I can do? Do I go back to the way it was so I can just write and not worry about the tech mechanics? Do I just give up?

My child, can you reach others with My love?

Yes Sir.

Then write. Don’t worry about the numbers. Write the words I speak to your heart. Let them know I’ll speak to them too.  img_8839

It’s not about numbers, the numbers on your scales or the numbers on your  blog. When you first began this blog you wanted to encourage others, then you got sidetracked about making money with the blog. Haven’t you heard about Matthew 6:33?

Yes Sir.

Surrender was your key to victory with weight loss. Now surrender is your key to blog victory.

Focus on learning more about the process. Relax, don’t worry about how to make money. This blog was originally to share the message of My delivering power, freedom, and the victory I provide.

img_8767Do you want deliverance, freedom, and victory? Then help others and  encourage them. Surrender and obedience were the keys that set you free of obesity. They are also your keys to blog success. Don’t look at the numbers, look at Me. Don’t look at what you see, open the eyes of your heart to see Me. Keep your eyes on Me and I will bring about your victory. I granted you victory over your weight loss. I can take care of this blog too.

Lord, what do You want me to do with this “self-host”?

Stay as you are and learn the process so you can bring Me honor. Keep the focus of Your heart on Me and I will take care of the rest.

Do I keep the number count showing? It’s so depressing to me.

Yes. img_9154

But why?

To keep you humble and when I move, you will see it. Otherwise don’t look at the numbers, look at Me.

Lord, do I offer something free to gain email followers?

Not at this time. Just focus on the process and My word. Write for the joy of it, not the numbers. Write what I tell you.

Lord, it seems that everything has come against this. I was beginning to think it was You and that I was out of Your will.

My child, if You look unto Me, I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go.

Lord, I want to make a difference, to help others, and possibly to be a fisherman for You.

Trust Me. I know what I’m doing.

“If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think He’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do His best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way He works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how He works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.”  Matthew 6:30-33 (The Message)

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will guide you with My eye. Psalm 32:8 NKJV

Come,  follow Me! And I will make you fishermen for the souls of men!         Mark 1:7 TLB

  1. There, you have one more follower. And, if you ever need any advice on your blog – technical or otherwise, let me know. It is what God has brought me back to doing and I feel he has led us to each other. 🙂 Thanks for following me!

  2. I love your heart and your blog, Deborah. Keep on keeping on, girlfriend. I’m reading and praying for you as you work to get this fixed!

  3. Is this a public blog? May I share the link on my FB page for people who may be interested? Or is this the private group you had for a few of us? Thank you, Debbie.

    1. B.Wayne,
      Thank you so much for asking. This is a public blog. I would be thrilled and grateful if you shared it on your FB.
      The one thing that bothers me is that when someone just hits the “follow” button, it doesn’t show up in my number count. The number of subscribers only increases when you put in your email address. “Follow” no longer counts for me. You may still get it, but you’re not in my number count. That low number is so discouraging.,But God says, “Don’t look at the numbers, look at Me.”
      Thank you for your comment and encouragement. Please feel free to share it whenever or wherever you want. I am complimented. Thank you, my friend.

      1. Debbie,
        When you worried about losing your subscribers and followers, it was so right that the focus should move from you and your followers to Him and his word and His followers. What a beautifully, humbling and enlightening post.
        God bless you, Debbie.
        I am in personal doldrums right now- have stopped reading the Bible for a month because I can’t seem to find the comfort I used to find there anymore. Things are not going so well here. Husband is very sick and his sickness transfers to me.

        1. Susie,
          Thank you for your kind words of encouragement.

          I wanted to say “not like” at your second paragraph. Been praying for you today.
          Pick up His Word again. Let Him whisper His words of love to your heart.
          I have found that no matter who the man is, he is incapable of the love we are seeking. Only our Lord can love us like we long for. He is the lover of our souls. We will never be disappointed in Him.
          Find some along time with Him and let Him live on you. Let Him whisper His words of love to your heart, for He loves you like no other.
          Be filled my friend with God’s love, Debbie
