"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Four years ago today, I started a new adventure in my life, a blogging one. An adventure that would use creativity, courage, intelligence, time and perseverance. On September first 2011 I had started my first blog, Life of Us an Saints. It was a small blog, (but big in my head!) I remember my very first blog post was on Pope John Paul the Second, and how I thought he would be a good saint. I quote myself from 2011, I promise I haven't changed anything, " I am thinking by 2015 he will be a saint... Who knows it could be earlier or later." He was canonized in 2014. Wow! If you search hard enough, I am sure your could find the post.
This blog had gone through a name change after it's first 15 days. I wish I could remember the original name. Unfortunately, I never did a post welcoming people to the blog. However, Life of us and Saints lasted for one year, with a variety of different posts, but giving birth to the weekend posts-which I still do know.
At that time, in 2012 I had begun writing lots about prayer, and our need for it. I also began loosing my attraction to the blog, so I decided it was time for something fresh, something new, something that would inspire me to do more. So on September 1st, 2012, Pray To God Today came to existence. Has you may imagine, my first post was indeed on prayer! Over the past 3 years that Pray To God Today has existed I have done 432 published posts, and have achieved 100,000 page views with 53 followes! Thank You so much!
The past three years of Pray to God Today have, in my mind, been very successful. I have done weekend posts, reflections, prayer-posts, and much more! It has been very faith-growing researching and writing every single post. Some how, through the grace of God, I have been able to stick with blogging, and to help spread the word of God.
The number one reason I had started blogging back in 2011 was that I wanted to share my faith- I wanted to teach others, help them, and maybe give them some inspiration. To this day I carry the same passion and wanting to continue to write posts.
Today is a celebration of Gods work, not mine. It was because of him, that I decided to blog. It was because of Him that I had this passion to share my faith- everything originates from God.
Thank you to every single person who has read this blog, followed it, stumbled upon it by accident and possibly stayed, or who have liked and shared my posts- it means so much! I am excited to see what the future holds!
Have a good day,
