Is this all there is? Part 2

I have been thinking about life here on earth and how while it’s important to accomplish things here (buying a house, fixing up a house, having children, wanting to lose weight, wanting people to know God), we have to remember to not make these pursuits idols. The bible warns us to keep away from idols in 1 John 5:21. Now I understand that it can be quite tricky to recognise when we are making our pursuits idols ,especially from the list above, because they seem like good things, but if we slow down long enough to think about why we want those things, it might reveal that these things are slowly becoming idols. So the title reads “is this all there is?” the answer is no! and I would challenge you to slow down and think about your pursuits which are good and important, but to remember that those things are not all there is. The bible tells us in Matthew 6:33 to seek first God’s kingdom. So that means the priority in our life should be the things that God says are important, like focusing on the eternal and not the temporal. Again I say nothing wrong with pursuits but “is that all there is?” in this life? No! So please comment down below with things you might struggle with in your pursuits and let’s encourage each other by being honest and let’s all pray for each other that we may remember to seek FIRST the kingdom!

Is this all there is? Part 1

I have been thinking a lot about my life lately and what it should or could look like. As a person who is a visual learner its really important for me to watch how others do things so I can learn or take away some things that is being shown to me. I have been watching a YouTuber name Jonna Jinton, she is a Swedish woman who has a variety of talents and has been inspiring and challenging me to think differently about my life. I have been really thinking about how my life is to look as a christian in the practical sense. I have read so many books and listened to so many sermons on how to live and a lot of them seem to be exhausting if I am honest, and some are helpful as I am able to glean from some wisdom. One of the things I am learning from watching a lot of people who live off grid or have chosen to be near nature etc.. is the lack of the rat race living and thinking. So one of the things that I have been challenged to think about is whether or not the life I live is actually glorifying God or am I living a life that is a “this is how its always been done” kind of life and I’m not too sure how I feel about that. I want to ask you what’s your answer to this thought? I wanna leave this here as this is a huge question that may take time to think and pray through. I will be writing more on this, but I just wanted to have a conversation and see what others think about this particular thought. Let me know in the comments!

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
