Believe me when I say, I love each and everyone of you who take the time to stop by my blog and leave comments. Whether you follow me or not is not the issue. It's not you, it's me.
See PRIDE, yes in capital letters because it is such a huge stumbling block for me, is driving this obsession.
Everyday, several times a day, I peruse my dashboard stats to see the traffic, what sites are referring, oh and the comments too. I seem to say to myself "Oh look, they do like me!!" or, insert crying like a baby...."WAAAAA, nobody likes me."
My goal when I started this blog was to make the Lord visible through my posts. I know I have stayed true to that but at what cost? Am I really making Him visible or is it a means to MY end of getting validation?
I know that followers and link parties are the ways that most blogs work and that is the trend.
But I also know that if God wants my furniture business to prosper, than HE will make it happen and not by anything that I am doing or not doing, for that matter.
Is anybody else going through this????
I am really torn about whether I should keep my followers widget and my comments widget on my blog layout. Does that sound ridiculous? If I don't have them there will it stop my need to know if I am "good" at what I do? Shouldn't I be looking to the Lord for my self-worth?
Please help, I am really torn by this and I am looking for a word, so speak it because I need a reality check.
Always being renewed,
