Are you a Christian Blogger?
Are you doubting your calling as Christian blogger?
Today, I had faced a brick wall. It was another roadblock in my blogging journey. I knew why but yet, I kept hearing this little voice in my head that kept stopping me from continuing on.
If you’re a blogger, you know those roadblocks that you just can’t seem to get over. To other people, it may be something small. But to you, it’s a BIG deal.
You begin to doubt yourself and start to believe that you’re a failure. You look at the other bloggers in your niche and you wonder:
Am I good enough?
That was the roadblock I hit today. I don’t ever compare myself to anyone or anything but, it was just this little thing that seems to explode in my mind and take over.
Matter of fact, I had lost hope!
I had lost hope in my blogging, I had lost hope in myself, but most importantly, I had lost hope in my Savior Jesus Christ.
When I realized that, I knew I had to overcome that lie. I knew I was good enough for Jesus!
When you are called to blogging, you have hopes that it will reach to many people. You hope that their spirit may be filled by your post. You hope that it may bless them – even if it’s one person.
But when you lose hope in what you have been called to do, you are actually losing hope on the ONE who called you.
God knew us before we were even born on this earth. He knew our hearts, our mindsets, our passions, our desires, and our failures. He had already written out our plans for the future.
Whatever we do for His Will is good enough for Him. We are to be the salt and light of the world. We are to share the Gospel where it’s never been shared and reach to others who don’t know Christ.
However we do it, it’s all good enough for Him.
God confirmed in His word that I was good enough for Him. My blog is good enough for Him. In His Word it says:
“In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.” – Mt 5:16

Ask yourself if this is something Jesus will say or do. It may sound a bit cheesy but Christ spoke in parables and blog posts can be shaped into modern day parables to reach other people.
We are to have the hearts and mind like Christ because God did make us in His likeness. Your readers will appreciate your blog more and share it with others.
Rather than closing the laptop and throwing your hands in the air out of frustration, open your heart to Jesus. Ask Him to give you the strength and guidance to continue on your blogging journey.
Remember, blogging is your ministry. Ministries take lots of time to develop and prosper. But, always keep this in the back of your mind: There is always at least ONE person who needs to hear God’s Word today.
So don’t give up, Child of God! Those roadblocks are just small battles of a war that has been won over by a HUGE victory!
As a Christian blogger, it can be difficult to get your blog out there and be seen by lots of people. At times, we look at other bloggers and wonder if we’re good enough. Don’t compare yourself to other bloggers but rather compare your heart and likeness to Christ. You are good enough for Him and your blog that spreads His word is good enough for Him as well. All you need to know that there’s always at least one person who needs to hear God’s Word today.
