I have a confession to make.
I’m an addict.
Every morning, whether I’m at work or off duty, I go online and surf the Internet in search of the thing I crave.
Yeah, I know… I just came down from one high, but another one is out there waiting for me. And I’m going to find it.
Now I know what you’re going to say.
I could quit if I really wanted to.
But the truth is, I don’t want to.
I have probably 30 friends right now who are blogging regularly—maybe more. I lost count. (If you’re an addict, its good to have friends who support your habit.)
My blogging friends hear God pretty well and they write about their conversations with Him. When I read a blog post written by someone who is tuned in to the frequency of heaven, I learn a little more about what heaven is up to. After reading my friend’s blogs, I always have a better understanding of what God is doing among His people and what He’s saying. And knowing what He’s up to is kind of a big deal to me.
My blogger friends also have, collectively, a few centuries of time walking with God. They distill their experiences and revelation into messages anyone can read. If you read someone’s blog, you glean the benefit of the lessons they’ve learned without needing to suffer their mistakes. The collective wisdom of thousands of saints is available to us through their blogs.
There are a lot of other things I could do with my time. But other than spending time with God Himself, there’s no better way to spend my time than reading the living epistles He is writing through my friends who blog. And honestly, as I read their blogs, and He highlights the things they say that are relevant to me, I’m spending time with Him, too.
Some friends who are gifted writers are not yet blogging. And because they have valuable things to add to the conversation, I’ve asked, and they’ve allowed me to re-post their messages here. I hope they’ll consider starting their own blogs soon. God seems to be extending extraordinary favor to writers right now.
If you’re interested in checking out some of my favorite blogs, you can find them listed in the left hand sidebar under “Blogging Friends.”
But be careful. Blogs can be addictive.
You’ve been warned.
