Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

day 345: My Lamp

2 Samuel 22:29-30
Oh Lord, you are my lamp,
The Lord lights up my darkness.
In your strength I can crush an army;
with my God I can scale any wall.


I'm not going to lie. I'm a bit sad. I have nothing really to be sad about-- but I guess-- this blog kind of gets me down.

What?  It's an encouragement blog. How can it get you down? If it gets YOU down, what does that say about us?

I know.. I know!

You see, I think I'm doing something wrong. Either I'm not following God and telling you what you should hear OR I'm not doing it in the right way. I thought maybe I was reading too much into the 0 or 1 comments posts, but it's been going on for while. I write it, so it must be me.

I don't know exactly what I should do with this blog-- what to change-- what to keep--- how to make it where you want to read/respond. But I know that God is telling me something about it. But (like a lot of times) I can't figure it out.

This is my wall (well, one of them). Kelly would have given up a few months ago, but I made a commitment to God to write for every day for a year. It's too close to give up now... and then what?

God is my strength in this. He's the one keeping me going and telling me that it's ok. He doesn't judge me by the amount of hits or comments (or book offers).

God is my lamp. He shines in my darkness. I can't do anything without Him (though I try sometimes... and more often than not, I fail.).

Does this post have a point? Well, if it does, it's this: honor your commitments to God. And if you touch just one person, it's all worth it.

God Bless You


  1. kelly thats how I feel about the early service. i must be doing something wrong or more would be coming. but sometimes I think maybe its for me so that I will be more prepared for the ministry. either way i keep praying ya

    1. <3 I think this keeps me more prepared for the 'rejection' letters you get as a writer lol Just got my 30th yesterday... thought about having a party ;)

  2. I too have felt the same as you Kelly, however the words the Lord spoke to me......

    " Despise not small beginnings"

    Do not be fooled by the lack of comments, you are reaching those who need to hear words of encouragement even if it is only one person at a time.( I am one of those people ) Don't let the world tell you who you are ( letters of rejection) Tell the world who you are, one word at a time!!!
    My prayers for you my friend, and keep posting/writing!!

  4. Aww Stacey. That made me tear up.
