I blog for 2 critical reasons. I passionately embrace writing in my soul AND God said to. So how did this toxic infection of “value” contaminate my purity of motivation and freedom to become consumed with stats?
The better question is WHY! Why would I desire to base my progress or the validity of my writing on the subjected opinion of other imperfect and broken human beings?
Not that my heart doesn’t smile with each response of encouragement and not that a thumbs up symbol doesn’t drive me to create more, cause it certainly does, but God help me if I don’t break the dependent spirit that seeks and feeds on the fleshy acceptance and approval of others.
Truth: My obedience to God should far outweigh the hope or fear of success or failure, especially through the tainted eyes of man, including myself!
1 Corinthians 4:3
As for me, it matters very little how I might be evaluated by you or by any human authority. I don’t even trust my own judgment on this point. NLT
