I just finished writing and posting my blog for the day. It is 9:35am and I have writing marked off my mental to do list for the day. I’m sitting here alone in my thoughts with the rest of the mental to do list. The handsome fella is finishing up a short day at work and will be home soon to begin some extended time off for the Thanksgiving Holiday. The girls are doing what teenage girls do when they don’t have to get up to go to school…sleeping in. I have much to do but I want to keep writing. In reality, I may not write as much as I’d like this week, so why not take advantage of the fact that something caught my eye right after I entered my last post and caused me to want to keep going?
After I entered my last post, I clicked over to take a look at the stats on my page. I was particularly curious to see how this month was looking because it hasn’t been a stellar month for me in the daily blogging challenge. I wanted to see if I was going to be anywhere near pulling off a decent month after a very rough start. My blog is mostly read by close friends and family, so I don’t get huge numbers, but this month will be half of the usual hits for the first time in 7 months. The graph on this site shows a 30 month cycle. At least this month isn’t an all time low on that chart. Although this month will likely be about 50% less than the past 7 months, there was a month on the chart that was actually 50% less than this month.
Why was my blog traffic so low in June 2013? Why was I drawn to that fact this morning?
Well, for one thing there were only 9 posts that entire month. You don’t actually get many readers if you don’t supply them with something to read. I thought I’d look for clues about why I wasn’t writing much that month, but instead I found something God wanted me to see for right now. :) Click here and you can read the post He led me to. If you’ve read my earlier post, you will know that I wrote about my relationship with Him. You will know I wrote about hiding. You will know I wrote about seeking. And just as I’m finished writing about those things, He found a way to highlight something He wanted me see. :)
If you have been raised with Christ, keep seeking things above, where Christ is… Set your mind on things above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Him. Col 3:1-3
Um, yeah! God has a little to say to ME about Hide and Seek, doesn’t He? :)
