To My Jesus Loving, Lady Blogger Friends: How to Stay Strong and Remove the Fog

We are committed to truth. We are committed to prayer. We are committed to giving our yes to God every time we sit in front of a blank white screen. That means, our enemy is and will continue telling us no.
It takes bravery to speak the words our Father God whispers to us. It takes commitment to take your stand in the mission God has given you. And believe it….God has given you this.

Our mission is the same: speak the truth of the gospel to every eye who reads each word we write.

We need to know we aren’t alone because we have an enemy who HATES us. When God the Father gives His daughters His words to tell His people we become very dangerous warriors.

We shed light on the lies women believe.  People who know the truth can’t help but share it.

It takes bravery to speak the words our Father God whispers to us. It takes commitment to take our stand in the mission God has given us.  And believe it….God has given this to us.

If you have an audience of 1, 100, or 10,000 you have been called to speak-end. of. story.

We type the words of encouragement that touch the parts of brokenness that only the gospel of Jesus Christ can heal. Those words are read all over the globe!

We are committed to truth.  We are committed to prayer. We are committed to giving our YES to God every time we sit in front of a blank white screen.

That means, our enemy is and will continue telling us no.

No. You aren’t any good at this.

No. That wasn’t God’s whisper.

No. This isn’t important. It’s all been said before.

No. Nobody cares about your thoughts or your walk with Christ.

Most who write in Jesus name have tasted and seen that the Lord is GOOD! Satan will try to do everything in his power to convince us that this kingdom work isn’t important or necessary.

He’ll wreak havoc in our lives trying to convince us this kingdom work isn’t worth it. He’ll jack with our health, our kids, our marriage.  He’ll cause confusion, doubt, and blank spaces.

But Heaven is here. It’s at our fingertips as we grab onto Christ and His word. Heaven is here. It’s all around our stories. It’s in our struggles, our gladness, our moments of rejoicing, and our moments of suffering.

Heaven moves each time we hit publish. Tweet that

For two months I had a fog all over me. I didn’t know what it was. I knew what God wanted me to write and how He wanted me to say it. I was fully prepared to do the Lord’s work, but for two months I sat down to write and …….nothing.

I literally couldn’t get it out of my head.

My mentor told me when you begin to put yourself out there in ministry you are “flying a plane.” Before, I was driving a car.

He asked my process and expressed more safety precautions are required when flying a plane because more people are involved.

Ladies, we are flying planes! We need MUCH prayer! Ever since receiving this great golden nugget of wisdom, I’ve created my prayer team. Each time I sit to write, they all get a text.

I am then covered in prayer in the name of Jesus and nothing the enemy wants to do can stop me. There is power and confidence when you know you can’t be touched.  That protected, safe place is where we glorify God with our words, graphics, and click to tweets.

So get a team! Mine has four members. That’s it.  It doesn’t take many. I pray and intercede specifically for bloggers each Wednesday! I consider us small ministries. BECAUSE WE ARE.

Be encouraged today! Shine your little or big light with conviction…I’m still not over that..read more on that here:

How to Shine with Conviction

1 Corinthians 4:1

“So then, men ought to regard us as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the secret things of God.”-Paul

Pray up. Study up. Listen up. And keep hitting publish.
That’s right my Jesus loving lady blogger friends, we are servants of God, entrusted with the secret things of God.

That’s right my Jesus loving lady blogger friends, we are servants of God, entrusted with the secret things of God.

Praying for y’all.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I praise you for Jesus and for the cross. Thank you for allowing us to do your work alongside you. Protect us Father from our enemy.  Protect us from confusion and doubt. Continue to give us your heart for your people. Give us the words to encourage and uplift them as you would have it. Give us favor with our readers and prepare the hearts of minds of every reader you put before us. I pray this in the might name of Jesus.

Amen

  1. Interesting and powerful truth. It is hard enough putting yourself out there.
    I’m glad we can lean on Him every time we struggle with these doubts.
    Thanks for the encouragement.
    It is quite nice to meet you, Lauren.
    God Bless

  2. Lauren, I *love* the idea of a prayer team for writing. I’ve never considered that before; what a great idea. Thanks for this encouragement today. God’s got things to say through our meager words, and satan can’t hush our voices. 🙂 ((blessings))

  3. Thanks for this encouragement, Lauren. It is hard to ignore that voice that comes against us sometimes but it is so rewarding when we push through and write and see God use our words to bless or help someone.

  4. This has really blessed me! I found you thru the HollyGerth link up, and felt led by the Lord to read your post! I post on yogurljennydg.blogspot.com and it has been a battle. Sometimes I feel alone, but at the same time Im stepping out. I stopped blogging for a while until the Lord kept pressing me to start again more than ONE time! So I figured I better start again! Im always on FB lol. But couple days in blogging and I see how much warfare and discipline really is involved in saying YES to the Lord! I LOVEd your illustration of the plane. Sometimes we can forget that we are traveling with PEOPLE! I cant give up now or stop! I must keep going! Thanks for the encouragement! This is my sword against the enemy….and I’m gonna use it!!! You have urself a new reader! 😉 Be blessed!

  5. Great, encouraging word! You are right. The enemy hates what we are doing which is why we know we are on the right track. He doesn’t waste his time with those who live confirmed and not putting themselves out there for the kingdom. Be encouraged!

  6. Praising God for the power of His words in your words directly into my heart! I do not think I have ever read a post such as this in the 8 years I have been blogging. I am sure they are out there, but God sent me here because He knows I needed this wonderful encouragement. I am blessed. We are neighbors at Lily’s today.

  7. Hi Lauren,

    I’m new to your blog and stopped over by way of a link up. Good getting to know you and be here. I really appreciate what you’ve shared. It’s a very timely message for someone who just took a 1 year hiatus from blogging and was finding it difficult to jump back into the “game.” I was wondering if the difficulty in getting re-acclimated was the Lord saying’ “Enough, you’ve had your time.” But I prayed and pushed through the writing block – glory be to God! I also am writing in an authentic way, not trying to be a copy cat Christian mommy bloggers. Stop over and read a post or two when you have the time.

    Blessings,
    Tiffiney
