As I was looking at my blog site, I noticed a “stats” button. When I clicked on it, I was surprised to see all the stats (complete with a bar graph) of every article I’d ever written. On average, I got 18 views a post and about 1600 since the beginning of the blog. I was a little bummed, as I only had the “Top Gun” authors to compare myself to. I prayed for clarity in what I should do, wether I should continue. “Eighteen’s not many, Lord,” I said. As soon as the thought was out of my mind, the Lord said to my spirit, “It’s not about being popular, it’s about being obedient.” Ouch. And SO TRUE. So many times in life we look at things LOGICALLY. “Does this make sense? Is this a waste of time? Do the numbers add up?” Convicted, I determined to continue writing as long as I felt the call from the Lord. The next day, I again clicked on the stats, but this time noticed a “location” button. After clicking on it, I was shocked to see that, after the United States in “most viewed” place, was China! “Impenetrable,” communist China! Wow. Who knows how many might be affected? Luke 16 says: “Whoever can be trusted with small things can also be trusted with big things.” Sometimes it’s the “little things” that reap “big things.” May we all be faithful in ALL things God has set before each one of us (little and big) and trust Him to bring the harvest!
