Blogging re-examined...

Should I be blogging, really?

I love reading blogs that convict me, teach me, encourage me. 
I love to write. 
I love to share my heart, my experiences, and my opinions.
 I love the Lord and I love to share what he has done and is doing in my life. 

I started my blog in order to do all of these things. 
I wanted to share with others, and I love the comments I get here and when I share on Facebook. 

I am not a regular blogger. 
I just blog when I have the extra time, or something to say about it. 
I have a long list of blog posts I want to write.

However, lately I have been thinking.

I spend too much time with my technology as it is. 

I recently read this blog post over at Hands Free Mama
It really stepped on my toes. 
You should read it. Really. 

Then, as I was weighing out my time spent with technology, I realized that I have stepped over a line. 
Not a line in technology, a Biblical line.

1 Timothy 2:11-14 tells us:

11 A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. 
12 But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. 
13 For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve. 
14 And it was not Adam who was deceived...

 I have not been quiet. Quiet, in this sense, means orderly. 
It means that I have been speaking out on matters in a manner that is not meant for me (as a woman) to speak out on in a public venue.
A blog is *very* public.
I have not followed the proper order of what God has laid out. 

So, I will be more mindful of what I say, and how I say it. 

I will continue to do my Bible studies with other women, because it is private from men. 
I will *not* continue to blog in an attempt to uplift and encourage my sister's in Christ. 
I feel I could be messing up the divine order of things. 
I want to be a Titus 2 woman, and I want to learn from Titus 2 women. 
Until I am sure of the proper way to go about this in a technological age, I will refrain. 

I will blog when I have something to share, but my primary focus will be sharing with my family.

I will not be blogging frequently.

Thank you for supporting me, encouraging me, and your thoughtful comments.

  1. Reading your blog is really a joy. You have the uncanny ability to entertain, inspire and inform at the same time.

I *love* getting feedback and comments. I will publish links to other blogs, just as long as they are not derogatory to a belief I hold in high esteem. I will post comments that disagree with my stance, as long as they are respectfully written. Most importantly, I will do my best to reply to all of my comments. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.
