Once in a while I had meet a few people and on these conversations my blog has been brought up. For some reason, I’ve always been asked if I’m making money of it. It’s always the first or second question. “Maybe in the future,” to which I replied. It is nice to always have an extra source of income, it is even better if you do something for the love of it not for the monetary reason.
It saddens me that this world mostly is about making money like that’s the whole reason for existence. There’s this race of accumulating things. Yes, I was guilty of it too until that time I was broken and forsaken. I realized that life is way more than that. God never envisioned that kind of life for us. I am not saying making money is bad, it is the motivation behind it. In fact, the Bible even says that the love of money is the root of all evil (1 Timothy 6:10). Let’s break that down. It’s the love of money, the love of it not money itself. It’s not only one evil, all evil.
When you do things solely for money, you become obligated to it. We have been taught that material things give us happiness. If that so then we would be satisfied with what we’ve got but the opposite happens. We want more and more and more. How many people out there who makes a ton and yet not happy. If you ask them why they don’t do what they really love, “this job pays more,” is the common answer.
A month ago, I have this older gentleman on my Facebook. I never knew him, he’s a friend of a friend. I would post things that gives encouragement and hope. That there’s a God who cares, that you can run to Him no matter how broken you are. No matter how much you’ve failed. He sent me a pm and says wanted to meet. To thank me personally that all that stuff I’ve been posting made a difference in his life. From that moment, no amount could ever top that. It is priceless and I did the job that God wanted me to do.
I didn’t make this blog to make money nor to promote myself. I made it to give you hope, to give you encouragement by the things I went through and how God displayed His glory and unconditional love. It doesn’t matter who you are. You don’t have to be a Christian though it is my prayer that you’ll be one. Whatever situation you are in, as long as you’re breathing there is hope.
If I could make you go on for one more day and the day after and so forth my joy would be complete. I pray as the days goes by that you would ponder that God is there waiting for you to come home, like the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32), waiting for you right there with His arms wide open, longing to embrace you.
I don’t want money, I don’t want recognition. I’d rather see you get save. My joy is found in bringing you back to Christ. As God’s grace and mercy is free, I give freely.
So don’t be afraid open that Bible, read it and get to know Him.
