Today marks my 3000th blog post on this site.
It’s not a magical number. It doesn’t mean much of anything, except perhaps to provide some encouragement…
…because I had no idea I’d blog for this long. I have questioned myself several times. And I’ve questioned God, asking him to let me know when it’s time to back off or shut down. I think it’s important to ask for confirmation and guidance on a regular basis, because I don’t want to continue out of stubbornness or obligation. My motivation is encouragement and obedience.
I have no idea how much longer I’ll blog, but it’s a reminder to me—and hopefully to you—that we often begin things with no idea what the process or end will look like. We might have a plan. We might be wrong. We might get overwhelmed. We might give up. We might persevere. We might get off track. We might lose focus. We might be inspired. The journey is often surprising—and we take it one step at a time.
In this case, one blog post at a time.
One step. Today. Take it. Whether it’s a new step or a familiar one, ask God to guide and provide, then trust him. It’s what pure purpose looks like.
