Welcome, come on in! How is your day going so far?
I was just wondering if you’ve ever been challenged on an attitude, perspective or behavior?
I’m pretty sure we all have, especially growing up. But as adults we don’t necessarily appreciate it so much, do we! Especially if it’s from our spouse! Lol!
But what if the challenge comes from God Himself? Hmmmm!
Well I have recently been just so challenged by Him! Yes, I know it sounds a little scary…but remember He is the perfect gentleman!
Let’s grab our cuppas & get comfy while I tell you all about it…
The blogging call
It all started when I felt called to start this blog back in October 2017, although I didn’t launch until January 2018, as I had to do quite a bit of research. I like to know where I stand with new things & blogging was an alien world to me back then!
I decided before launching Tea With Jennifer, that I was going to keep our identities private because I had convinced myself that this was appropriate in my professional role.
But since I posted Beware, be safe, it’s very real! I’ve had this niggling conviction that maybe, just maybe I should be trusting the Lord more!
Though if I’m truly honest with myself, it was probably from October 2017 when the niggling actually began!
Thus, I have been doing some reflective soul searching with God in trusting Him more in this area.
Have you been there too, having to trust God more in a certain area of your life?
I mean the Internet is a scary place, isn’t it! Especially when we hear of the nasty things that happen in cyberspace on a daily basis!
And having already experienced the theft of my credit card identity, its no wonder I became over cautious!
Although… being over cautious can equate to being fearful!
That’s just it isn’t it, if we continue to live over cautiously it soon morphs into living fearfully. It begins to rule our life in one area then extends its tentacles to all areas.
There’s absolutely no doubt that we need to have wisdom on the Internet, as in any public forum. We do need to have secure sites with reputable site management.
Being very wise in our personal content & mindful in taking the necessary cyber security measures, as we would in any public sphere.
We can’t live fearfully & be fearless in our calling!
“God has not given us a spirit of fear but of love, power & sound discipline.”
2 Timothy 1:7
