1. I really couldn’t have said it better myself.

    I’ve been surprised many times by what I’ve learned, probably more than I could articulate or list here. From the bloggy stuff like writing, behind-the-scenes tech stuff, and finding community I’ve come further than I thought possible, but then there’s all the rest I’ve learned.

    God’s shown up so many times when I’m struggling with fear, self-doubt, and all the things.

    I’ve learned I don’t have to be an expert to have a say: I have the right to speak about what I’m writing about because I’m walking through it. And I’ve learned that diving in is the best teacher. God has and is equipping me for the task He’s given me.

    Wow. I think you hit a button for me! God bless!

    1. Thank you so much Ashley!! I am so glad it resonated with you!! God is not only equipping you but using you in such powerful ways!! You are inspiring and encouraging so many people!!

  2. I love this idea of a link up. I’m just starting my blog and still trying to figure out the ins and outs of connecting. Maybe I’ll be here next week to link up!

  3. Don’t wanna say anything in connection with whatever was mentioned above..
    Just wanna share something as 1 sinner to all others.
    Maybe it speaks to ALLOT or just 1 specific person,that has a big / huge gift from God to safe souls/be a Disciple for Jesus.
    I’m an addict living in a country on this temporary/ fleshly format that has been given to us as a test to see who we REALLY chose to follow…
    Someone out there has an Amazing gift from God through Jesus to save many,many souls and this person is waiting for something…
    Before fulfilling their purpose here on earth!
    My question to you is ..

    .”how long do you wanna wait,for something that you allready have (all glory to GOD).”

    JESUS wants to use you ,and you will lose some things, but you will Gain so much more!


    1. Thank you Ben for such heartfelt encouragement. It is so appreciated and I’m sure will speak to people! Bless you!

  4. It’s been a long time I am wanting to create my own blog. I just don’t know how to kickstart everything. I have plenty of worries; Will I ever have readers? Is my blog going to be interesting and and will entice readers to subscribe or read some more? But then, with the challenges I encountered recently, it made me want to blog how hard it was and how God made me stronger to get through it and how he made his own ways and mediums reach me. I’m guessing sooner than expected I can publish my first ever blog! I’m inspired!

    1. I am so happy it inspired you to get started! You CAN do it! Definitely check out my resources page and look under Blogging. There are so many helpful resources there!

  5. Great article. I totally agree with your thoughts here. I love connecting with other bloggers and networking.

  6. Thank you for sharing this Diane.

    Some valuable lessons to be learned and I particularly like this – “if you want to learn this stuff really well, try to teach it to someone else”.

    It fits very well with the Great Commission and His call to each and every Christian to spread and share His life, in His glory and His word to the world until the end of age.

    Christianity is in decline so thank you for reminding us that Christians not only have a conviction to communicate but they also have a duty to spread His word and in doing so they are educating themselves, keeping His words alive and helping others.

    The great Commission called upon each and all to share in His work, in His glory and to ultimately share in His word.

    As Christians we each have a unique voice and individual perspective on our Christian faith and how we live our lives as we walk with Him. We should be sharing this more to help those who need it most.

    We have the technology at our fingertips to enable us to reach millions around the world with His word and our Christian experiences but very few Christians actually utilise that technology to help share His word.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words and your encouragement! You are right…as Christians we need to share our faith more and I hope this encourages some to do just that! God bless!

  7. It is nice to see members of the Messianic Community stepping out and doing great things. I am a Messianic believer as well. I would love to see more of our presence online :). Thank you for sharing. If you have the time, I would love to hear more about your blogging journey and how it is working out for you. It is something that I am researching daily. It is hard to tell if it is really worth it or not.

    1. Sorry I got caught up in the excitement of another Jewish believer I forgot to reply to the rest of your comment lol
      I would love to chat with you and let you know more about my blogging journey. I also in the meantime have a bunch of different posts on the site that talk about blogging so you’re welcome to check those out as well but you can email me through the contact form and we can chat about it

  8. This is a great post without any doubt. Your article is valuable for me and also for others. Please keep it up with your great work. Good luck to the future and thanks for sharing this wonderful blog.

    1. Thank you so much! I appreciate you visiting and for taking the time to leave some encouragement!!
