In a society that seems to continually push God out of the public arena, I am finding continual finding evidence of His activity in my life. Last week I felt overwhelmed with my blog taking off and was trying to explain it to a friend, when I said, “That’s God, with a capital G!” Meaning the all powerful, all knowing, everywhere Divine ruler was showcasing his love towards me, and using something that I had posted. And He was showing favor as it took off. So, here it is. . .
This week has been an amazing week as a writer / communicator. I started blogging mid-February, building on a passion to empower prayer and encourage people. About two weeks ago, I wrote an article on the Top Ten Causes of Depression. I followed it up with Eight Characteristics of an Emotionally Healthy Pastor. Honestly, the Top Ten Causes was my most popular posting so far, I was very pleased, but unprepared for what happened next. On Wednesday, my post’s link was listed on Christianity Today’s Parse – Ministry / Culture from Leadership Journal. Then Thursday a quote and link was featured on David Murray’s headhearthand.org. From Wednesday through Saturday, my views are increased amazingly. I have seen more views in the first ten days of the month than in the first 2½ months. In my world, this is a dramatic increase.
My reaction to this is:
Humble thanks – I cannot believe the opportunity God has given me. That things trend while I am really not doing anything to promote it.
Expectation – That if God has empowered me to do this once, He can and will do it again!
Preparation – I have learned a lot during this continued explosion. I want to give people something they can take with them as a growth gift. I will prepare something for you, check back and be ready to empower prayer and encourage you personally.
Thanks so much for visiting andrewknott.org and I hope that it will continue to build you up as you continue to follow Him. A great reminder, “That’s God, with a Capital G!”
