Great assembly

Psalm 40:8-10

I desire to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart.  I proclaim righteousness in the great assembly; I do not seal my lips, as you know, O Lord.  I do not hide your righteousness in my heart; I speak of your faithfulness and salvation.  I do not conceal your love and your truth from the great assembly.

It is my desire to do God’s will, for my journey to be directed by Him.  Writing is a way for me to ‘not seal’ my lips  about my faith in HIm.  I want to share His goodness and mercy with the great assembly.  For me, the great assembly will be my book and blog audiences (should I be able to build them!)

 

In today’s world it appears  the best way for me to build an audience is to tap into the social media  explosion.    I have taken classes, gone to conferences, read an abundance of the endless literature available about websites, blogs, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google’s new algorithm,  etc., etc.  I almost know less now than I did when I started!  I have been dipping my toe in the waters since I set up this blog in March, my first post was not until August, and here I am at the end of November averaging just one blog post per month.

 

Contemplating my progress from March to November, I consider my efforts  have been more in the ‘observing’ rather than in the ‘doing’ realm.  I realize I need to set aside my perfectionistic  tendencies, which are causing my hesitation to just consistently ‘blog’ something for my potential audience without editing it senseless, and trust that the Lord will give me meaningful encouraging words and thoughts  to share in this format.  Meanwhile, I will also continue working on the Devotional’s publication, along with nurturing other writing projects that have swirled in my imagination for too many years; now is the time to get them on paper… or into cyberspace.

    It can be overwhelming to learn about all the different social media and jump in the deep end of the pool. But you’re making progress, and maybe you’ll settle in to more blog posts and such once you get comfortable with it. Good call to tell your perfectionist side to cool it a bit. Blogs are meant to be informal, so go for it! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing your journey with us!
