Dear Erika

You suck. Or at least that is what the blogger-boss said to me today. It was basically because i had "created" this blog but didn't post anything. Ha. I didn't really know what to post. (secret: i still don't). So anyways, i had created the blog and then just left it there, hoping that i would get inspired. Inspired to say something...well...inspirational.

It still hasn't come yet.

So while i sat there trying to figure out what my first "inspirational" blog would be, i got this email that says (loosely paraphrased) "dear new blogger, we pretty much think you created this blog to spam other bloggers and we are putting you on blog probation. You suck!"

Apparently my blog-boss doesn't have the time to wait for inspiration. And apparently it wasnt necessary for me to wait for inspiration. Because God will give it to me. Because this blog isnt about me. Its about Him. Oh, and they took me off probation.

So here goes:

"Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble." Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:5-7

I would humbly like to submit myself to you. I ask that you would keep me accountable to keeping this blog about the Lord. Never about me. Ever. My prayer is that God would use me, my life, my "whatever", to honor Him and that, whoever you are, when you read this blog, you would be inspired by the Holy Spirit. To share His love, to share His wisdom, to serve others and to clothe yourself with humility before one another.

I dont care if i have a typo and i dont care if what i say doesnt "sit right" with you. My only concern is that my words would come from the Word of God and that He would use them as He sees fit. I want to be His vessel. I want my words to "sit right" in light of the Word. In light of Jesus Christ.

Because I love Him.
