Was my blog supposed to be something other than humorous tidbits from my life? Was my blog supposed to be something different, something more? So instead of worrying about it and questioning myself, I started praying.
I asked God to let me know what my blog was supposed to be. I prayed about this for a while and my blog continued to be a blog about funny snippets from my life and I still had this nagging feeling that something was missing.
A couple of weeks ago, I was in the shower one morning and I was praying about my blog again. And while I was shaving my legs, God spoke to me.
Now, when I say spoke, I don't mean I heard a thundering voice or saw a burning bush. I mean 'spoke' in the sense that I felt a sense of peace and excitement and I knew exactly what I was supposed to do.
While saving my legs and praying about my blog, I heard the words "Miracle Monday" and got the idea that I should use my blog every Monday as a place to encourage people to write about miracles and then link them back to my blog. It would be like a clearinghouse for miracles.
I started thinking more about Miracle Monday and then I decided that it was silly and that I should just drop it. But I couldn't get the idea out of my head and I kept praying about it and thinking about it. And I realized that if God wanted Miracle Monday to happen it would happen whether I thought it was silly or not.
So with no further ado, I present:
I am asking that you spend this week thinking about a miracle that you have witnessed or that touched your life or that you have somehow been a part and next Monday, March 3rd, write a post on your blog and link back to it from here. (I'll have a Mr. Linky.) My plan is to host this every Monday starting next week.
And if this is something you would like to spread the word about, please feel free to use this button on your sidebar or to even write a post it about it this week letting everyone know that we are getting started with it NEXT Monday.
I know many of you may be thinking that you don't have a miracle to write about, but I bet if you stop and really think about it, you do. Your miracle doesn't have to be someone walking on water or someone being raised from the dead (although if you have a story like that, I would love to hear it!).The American Heritage Dictionary defines a miracle as "an event that seems inexplicable by the laws of nature and so is held to be an act of God." Miracles come in all shapes and sizes and I think it would be a blessing if we shared them with each other.
So start thinking about your miracle, write about it, and link back to it here NEXT Monday.
Maybe now I can shave my legs in peace!
