I used to think I was letting my readers down if I didn’t put out a great series every month. I’d feel like I was losing my edge.
When we Christian business bloggers get in a funk, or our routine gets messed up, it can make us lose our confidence which then has us question this whole writing thing moving forward.
But we need to take it easy and remember that God’s in control of every hour, day, week, month, and year. Every season, God’s in control.
The bible says:
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: He has made everything beautiful in its time. …. (continued) He has also set eternity in the human heart, yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God. I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that people will fear him. (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 11-14 NIV)
God doesn’t just leave you. He wants to reassure you through every moment and every season of your blogging journey.
God ordained a time and a season for everything that’s going to happen in your business, and nobody can mess with that plan.
You should feel comforted by this.
Has someone not getting back to you about a podcast opportunity? Did you lose a big blog post you spent hours writing? Remember: There’s a “time to weep and a time to laugh” and a “time to mourn and a time to dance.”
Remember, it’s only for a while — a season.
We shouldn’t be hard on ourselves for mistakes, setbacks, or lost opportunities. We need to learn the lesson, smile, laugh, and know that God ordains it all.
We are not just a blogger; we are being used by God to send a message to the world.
Whatever we’re going through, give it to God. Whatever the season of our business, God’s the one with the Master Plan.
