When your blog is failing…Go back to the basics

No….my blog is not failing. It’s doing quite well on the contrary. It’s really me that’s  failing. I don’t feel as though I am moving toward my full potential.

What is your full potential?

I’m so glad you asked.

My full potential is when I can hear the voice of God so clearly that I am able to move forward in each decision so effortlessly that their is no hesitation or second guessing on my part.

I am at my full potential when the conversations that I have with God are fluid. Unfortunately when it comes to my blog, the conversation is not fluid. It’s rough and choppy. I’m constantly trying to impose my will on God.

I refuse to consistently write about the things I know He is urging me to write about out of fear that I’ll offend you guys. I love God very passionately and as a result of all He’s brought me through I am very passionate about my faith. However I am still being taught how to effectively witness with truth coupled with love.

But I’ve come to the realization that the only way to learn is to do. Today I’ve decided to make a deliberate yet somewhat uncomfortable shift in my blogging. I am going to turn away from my fears, recalibrate what I post here and set my complete focus on what the Lord desires for this blog.

So, what does that mean for the future of A Proverbs Wife?

1~ More post relating to what God is doing in my life on a personal level.

2~ I will most likely reduce the amount of deal oriented post per week. All grocery and drugstore deals will continue to be posted, just not as many FREE sample offers and online deals. I will still post some just not as often as in the past.

3~ The content will be better in a sense that it will help you (and I) grow as Christian women, wives and/or mom’s.

I am really excited about what’s to come and I hope you are too!

Are there any topics you’d like to see featured here? I know that some of you have emailed me questions and I am working on answering those questions in a series of upcoming  post. Thanks for all your feedback.
