First off I want to thank those of you who have prayed; they have helped greatly. Through prayer, supplication, and diving into the word, I have found peace and clarity. I realized the Lord had to bring me to a breaking point for me to realize what I was doing was sinful. I was living a life of a lukewarm Christian. A fake. My objective was to gain followers, to achieve success, and to appear righteous by having a blog dedicated to the Word. I was living life as a modern day Pharisee, comfortable and proud. Busyness equated to Worthiness. And because my heart shifted, uploading letterings became a chore, it became an act out of selfishness instead of an act out of love towards my God. I was more afraid of losing followers than my relationship with the one who created me.
In Revelation 3:15-18, Jesus says,
I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, “I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.” But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.
Thank you for following this blog. I will continue my letterings, but not because people enjoy it, not because it pleases me, but because it is my sacrifice, it is my act of worship to my Lord and Savior.
God Bless and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
