Succeed

“My Daily Blogging Schedule/How I Get 25,000+ Page Views a Week.” 

That title captured my attention! I read the article by http://www.dollydowsie.com and researched some of her tips. I stopped when I read, “Click here to purchase viewers!” Her post gave the impression of success, but how many of those 25,000 did she buy?

I’m old-fashioned and frugal. The followers on my blogs are real people. How do I know? When someone starts to follow my blogs, I receive an email with a link to their blog. I check out their blogs, read their “About” page or a post that catches my interest and then I thank them for following my blog in the comments.

You cannot buy success. God is the one who causes us to succeed.

2 Chronicles 26:5, “And he sought after God in the days of Zechariah, the one who instructed him in the fear of the Lord. And in the days that he sought after the Lord, God caused him to succeed.” Modern English Version

I live a quiet, comfortable life. There are trappings of success that most do not consider. If I had 25,000 views, I would get more followers – but I would want to thank them on their blogs. I would get comments on the blog, instead of Facebook where I get them now and I would have to read and respond to those comments.

Blogs can be very time-consuming. They could take the time I spend in reading the Bible, practicing for the worship band, studying, and researching. Crowding out time for teaching at church services leads to disaster.

2 Chronicles 26:16, “And as he grew strong, his heart grew more proud, leading to his destruction. Then he acted unfaithfully against the Lord his God . . .” Modern English Version

Uzziah, who was also called Azariah, was successful as long as Zechariah the priest taught him. During that time, he regularly sought the Lord and it was God’s direction that brought him success.
