I rarely write blog posts these days, and I almost gave up on posting on IG too. But as I mentioned in my post below, all of this is God’s and for His greater glory, so. . . here I am.
I have been asking God lately about what He wants me to do when it comes to blogging. You see, I actually used to own both the “TrulyRichMom.com” and “TrulyRichandBlessed.com” websites but due to some technical issues beyond my control, they have been completely taken over by different entities, and now the content is totally different! 😦 I thought the issues would be “fixable,” but apparently, no. My heart is broken, but I claim that God has a deeper purpose behind all of these.
I guess it’s also fitting that God allowed me to see what has happened to my old websites—especially “TrulyRichandBlessed.com”—during Lent. It is, after all, the season of “giving up”. The season of surrendering to God and declaring, “More of You, less of me.”
Lately, especially after reading Kendra Tierney’s post about “control is an illusion,” I have come to realize that I still have a looooooong way to go when it comes to “abandonment to God’s will and acceptance of my current situation,” as Kendra wrote.
Anyway, as I have said in the past, what I do on the web, including on social media, is for Him. I started blogging 10 years ago (WOW, TEN years ago!) here on WordPress.com using a free platform, and now, here I am, back on a free platform. 😀 God *must* have a plan for all of this, I’m sure! (Claim it with me?!)
Maybe it’s time to give up blogging for now, since I rarely have time to write posts anyway? (And I’m still not even sure if people besides my family and friends actually read my posts! LOL!)
Or maybe it’s time to “rebrand” totally and come up with a totally new blog?
I really don’t know yet. So I guess this will be one of my Lenten prayer intentions! (Pray with and for me, please?)
In the meantime, I hope you’ll journey with me as I discern what God wants of me when it comes to the blogging department! Praying for you and all your concerns! (And I know all of us have so many, many concerns, including the recent Taal Volcano eruption and n-CoV—now COVID-19—epidemic!)
Lord, have mercy on us all! Mama Mary, pray for us!
P.S. If you’re an old blog reader/follower or if you’re from a PR company that I’ve worked with in the past, and have been wondering why in the world those sites look completely different (and not at all “mommy-related”, and showing content that’s NOT me at all), now you know what happened! Please feel free to follow my posts here instead, or better yet, subscribe to them. You can also e-mail me via firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂 God bless!
