Every time I take the time to start reading some blogs on the web, my heart is ministered to. There are some amazing people out there sharing some personal and thought-provoking things that God has taught them. Often, it’s exactly what I need to hear.
Sometimes I just feel stuck. Maybe it’s that I need to be inspired or motivated in some way because I’ve been feeling “blah.” Or maybe my heart is feeling some deep thoughts and convictions about something and I’m just needing a “word” from God – which He often sends me through His people. Maybe I’m feeling alone or blue. Whatever the emotion, it can be easy to stay in it for awhile if someone else doesn’t move you on out of it. I love blogs for that.
Here are a few blogs that have touched my heart lately with their honesty, insight, and faith. I hope you'll take a minute to stop by and let God speak personally to you through His people.
Sarah Markley - Sarah is so honest in her posts. She has an amazing way of speaking candidly about something and making it look and feel beautiful. I'm excited, because Sarah is going to start adding her words to my newsletter this Fall.
Baby Bangs - I have been following Amanda's blog for a couple of years now. Amanda is so descriptive. She has a flair for making me see, feel, and smell what she is talking about. Her heart beats passionately for the Lord and I love just walking daily through life with her as she strives for the same things I strive for - to be a Godly wife, mom, and to let God use and work through you at the same time.
The Journey - Katie is an amazing young woman. She lives in Uganda after visiting in 2007 and being irreparably touched by all of the homeless children. Katie has started a child-sponsorship program and personally adopted numerous children herself.
Without Wax - I'm fairly new in following Pete's blog, but I've been following him on twitter for awhile. I love his "shoot it to you straight" approach. This is a man who truly loves God and his family.
Heart to Heart With Holley - Holley has some amazingly deep posts - all said with amazingly short words. They get to your heart and really cause you to stop, ponder, and think about things.
In The Name of Love - I love Bianca. She is a kindred soul with a passion to walk the walk.
I love how God uses different personalities, characteristics, and life experiences to touch other people's lives. I love how people allow themselves to have a ministry simply by being authentic and genuine.
They've impacted my heart many times and I just wanted to give them a small "Shout Out" today and thank them for being who they are and letting us catch a glimpse of that. God has called each one of them in various ways and they bless me.
