I try not to bore you with my blogging struggles. If you’re not a blogger then you may not understand. But the blogging atmosphere is filled with the chatter of 6 figure income and hundred-dollar courses that will help you get there.
The amount of information about blogging can be overwhelming. Eventually, you don’t want to read another blogging post. Because you don’t know if it’s genuine or just another sales pitch.
When I quit my job I thought making a full-time income blogging would be a no-brainer. Build it and they will come.

Pray about it and God will fix it. Right? Well, that wasn’t the case.
I even tried giving God an ultimatum. Because quite honestly I was tired of reading other people’s success stories. Because I wanted to be a success story.
I was ready to quit.
But after a pep talk from my husband I was reminded of why I started this in the first place. I just wanted an outlet. I wanted to have a voice.
After several come to Jesus moment. I began to authentically share my spiritual journey. And I finally felt like my blog was being received.
People were enjoying what I had to say. And I was actually helping women in their spiritual journey.
It was the confirmation I had been asking God for. But I still wasn’t making money. It made me realize that I equated success to making money.
I realized I needed to make a change. If I was going to see my blog truly thrive I needed to refocus on God.
I heard a sermon that said sometimes failure is just a test. It’s a test to see if you will keep going after the purpose you believe God placed on your heart.
I decided that I needed to commit to my blog because it’s my purpose. But most of all, I needed to acknowledge God for all he was already doing for me. I began to pray, asking God to show me the way.
Micah 6:16 ESV says, You shall eat, but not be satisfied, and there shall be hunger within you; you shall put away, but not preserve, and what you preserve I will give to the sword.
I realized my hunger was misdirected. I was looking for worldly validation, chasing money.
Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” – Hebrews 13:5
When I needed to be chasing God’s word. Don’t be distracted by the world. Get lost in the word. Seek out the scripture and pray.
