I should not wait to praise Him and give Him the glory.
Of wide ranging impact that would touch many lives, I asked the Lord to give me a definitive affirmation that the plan and strategy for initiating and sustaining a Women’s Prayer Network at church is in His will. That was my morning prayer yesterday.
In the evening as I was browsing ChristianBlessings’ Dashboard, the Lord drew my attention to http://bestchristianblogoftheweek.blogspot.sg/ which I had never heard of nor noticed before.
Curious, I clicked and was soooooooooooo surprised as ChristiansBlessings had won the Best Clhristian Blog of the Week award for 17-23 June, 2013. It was no accident. It was God’s ordained message to me for yesterday.
Although I did not know of this award, nor of the criteria for winning this award. It was God’s affirmation to me.
As He had initiated ChristianBlessings since July 2010, He has drawn international bloggers of different ages and experiences, from the USA, Australia, England, S Africa, Philippines and myself from Singapore, who love the Lord to be its Contributors. He has sustained, refreshed and today inspires and anoints the blogs reaching to all parts of the world, touching and I pray impacting lives of each reader, who comes with an expectation to be blessed. His faithfulness is our experience and His promises ever true.
Today you see a new sign on our Home Page a symbol
that the Lord has accepted the offering of our blogs to Him, as faithfully His team of Contributors have posted His message of God’s love in prose, poetry, picture and song, with earnest hearts of thanksgiving and praise, sometimes sharing pain or laughter, here to His praise and glory.
Let it be a sign ever, that the Lord has surprised us with His honour – “Best blog” from the world was never our intention. Our aim has always been to win one soul at a time to the Lord, to teach and provide the message for others to carry to the ends of the world. It reminds me of “But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.” Psalm 3:3
With His surprise encouragement, let us continue to present Him our best effort in the blogs we write. Let us always be assured that He sees what we do and hears what we say, as He’s watching all the time, helping, strengthening, empowering us as His channels of blessings. Let us never be proud, remaining humble before Him and all, let this be a reminder that we can do nothing without Him for this IS His blogsite.
For me personally, He has granted the desire of my heart, to find confirmation from a totally different offering, ChristianBlessings, that my next offering to Him, of a Women’s Prayer Network at church will be blessed. As He has pooled our international bloggers here, He is able to pool all the women of our local church, from various ages, experiences and backgrounds to be a powerhouse of prayer for Him. Yes, He leads the way and shall ever. Glory to His Holy Name.
How can I praise Jesus less? He is my All in all. Thank You Jesus You are so surprising.
P.S. To the Administrator of Best Christian Blog of the Week, thank you for being God’s channel of blessing.
