Sometimes I just don’t understand why the Lord allows some things to happen or not to happen but I have learned not to question it. I know that God is in control of my life and as long as I fully rely on Him, everything will be alright. “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
This is true in every aspect of my life – not just my personal life. You may be running the blog or online ministry God call has called you to run, but it may not be as successful or profitable as you want it to be. The real question you be asking though is as successful and profitable as God wants it to be? Just because your blog may be taking longer to take off and reach readers than you would like, just remember that everything is in God’s timing.
Of course, that doesn’t mean you don’t need to work at your blog. As with any ministry, when we are feeling discouraged we need to persevere in the work God has given us. If that’s a blog, then you just need to continue working it. Continue praying for your blog. Continue writing great content. Continue connecting with other bloggers and readers. And most importantly, don’t give up until you know in your heart from God that it’s time to hang in the towel.
