I know this crazy thing called blogging can seem like a shot in the dark. We bleed on the pages of our blogs, hit publish and hope and pray that it will affect someone’s life.
We watch and water our blogs, waiting for the moment when it will grow. It’s exciting, stressful and depressing all at the same time.
We may see immediate results or it may take years for us to reap a harvest, if at all.
Maybe blogging is only a season in our lives. We pick it up because it serves some purpose, and we lay it down when that need is gone.
Whatever happens, we have followed the calling of ‘blogger’ and we tried our best to do it “unto the glory of God.”
At the end of the day, we have one hope a faithful blogger — to please Jesus. To show him the fruit of our blogging labor and hear the words:
Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together! Matthew 25:21
Oh, how I long to hear those words. To see my sweet Jesus face to face and know that I did what I was called to do to the best of my ability.
My hope is that your blog prospers. I pray you have viral posts that bring in tons of traffic and even tons of money. But most of all I hope that you please Jesus — that he celebrates with you.
Like the song says, “The things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.” Nothing can compare with Jesus — to know and to be known.
There may be no reward on earth for all our hard labor as bloggers, but if we are faithful there is an eternal reward of knowing that we have satisfied the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
That is our true celebration.
