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.
