Stepping Down From Blogging Platforms and the GraceLaced Mondays Link Up

Welcome to GraceLaced Mondays, a link up dedicated to sharing any and all blog posts by like-minded lovers of grace--God's grace! Grace is found in the everyday when you are intentional about taking note of it...and I invite you to share your story, great or small, of how everyday moments are full of Grace.

It is found in the sink full of dishes awaiting you after a family meal, it shines in the faces of your imperfect children, it soothes from the pages of God's Word, and it is tucked into the enjoyment of a fresh batch of cookies. Grace is in a beautiful moment and a heartbreaking one alike. Grace is blessing beyond what you and I deserve.

Do you struggle with the tension between a desire to make a difference through blogging and the pull towards self-promotion and pride online?  I really want to share with you Joy's post last week at GraceFull Mama. Joy shared so honestly about the trappings of being focused on blogging platforms and success in blogging, and how her desire is to make much of Christ alone:

"I’ll be honest, it can be difficult to keep perspective in a world swirling with numbers, names, and getting noticed. So I pray whether I fly or fail, write for many or for two, my heart stays humble and it would never be about me, but always, ever, all about Him. 

This is why I blog. He is why I blog."

Joy, I couldn't agree more. Thank you for sharing your heart...and for linking up with us!
