I Needed to Add A New Post, Search Me, O God......

I felt the need to add a new post just so that my post about myself would be removed from the first post on my blog. I feel a little anxious about posting so much about myself, as I do not want to come across as if I am bringing glory to myself. The whole idea of my blog was to bring Glory and Honor unto My Savior.
I have been pondering and really reviewing my motives in all things that are a part of my life. I want my life to point to my Savior, I want to stand before my Lord and hear him say one day, well done my child. So this is why I am asking myself these questions.
Why do I blog?
Why do I spend so much time reading others blogs?
Why do I need to blog to other Christians?
Is this going to merit me anything for all eternity?
Why do I do what I am doing? Does it line up with scripture?
Is it pointing others to Christ?
Is this really what the Lord wants me to do?
I have come to notice that there are a lot of Christians that spend a lot of time blogging. It is a wonderful tool to post your research and to post what is going on in our lives and a great way to allow family to keep up on what the Lord is doing in our lives. But what is my duty as a born again Christian?
Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Matthew 28:19 GO YE therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

I desire to reach others with the gospel, I desire to see souls saved. The reason for the poll was to see who I was reaching with my blog, which seems so far that I am reaching born again Christians. I do have a deep down desire to teach others and that is part of the great commission. I ask you to pray with me as you visit my blog and ask the Lord to give me clear direction on what his will is for my life. As I spend my time researching and digging into God's word on why I am doing what I am doing, I will try to update and share with you what the Lord shows me. I do believe that we should keep a constant check on our motives.

Psalms 139:23 SEARCH ME, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:

This is a hard prayer for me to pray, I know that when I do so, God is faithful to give me a very good glimpse of who I am and what my motives are. Sometimes, it is not fun to see yourself like God sees you, but I know the only way I can truly please my Lord is to allow him to shine his heavenly light into the deep dark secret parts of my heart and allow him to show me what he sees.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I would love to get some interaction on my posts, Please if you have something the Lord has shown you, feel free to leave your thoughts.
