In the same way that we will never measure up to that super model, super mommy, super (fill in the blank), we will never measure up to someone else’s blog.
Someone will always have more followers, more comments, a better layout, super-spectacular vlogging techniques, better photography, etc. Get the point?
He has called you to a special purpose. Are you a wife? Mom? Student? Grandma? Employee? Be diligent to do the very best with what God has equipped you with. That’s all He asks of us. And… He loves you no matter what (even when you fail miserably)!
Recently, a reader emailed me these GREAT questions:
5. Make a schedule for things you need to accomplish in your home/life. Put first things first. Just as you schedule time for cleaning/teaching your kids, schedule in time for blogging. (Luke 12:42: And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?)
6. If you are tempted to stay on the computer too long, set a timer! When it goes off, close your computer and move on with your life.
7. Remember your most important calling (if you are a mom/wife) is to be a godly wife and mother. (Titus 2:4-5: That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.)
8. Social media can never completely fill the voids in your life. We are all a work in progress, and the Lord is so faithful and gracious with us. Ask Him to satisfy your deepest longings instead of finding that satisfaction through self-approval and feedback from others. (Psalm 90:14: Satisfy us each morning with your unfailing love,so we may sing for joy to the end of our lives.)
