Yikes! God told me to do a blog

So low and behold….here I am doing my very first blog!  It seems surreal–ok let me be honest and say it is just unbelievable to me.  Sure blogging seems to be the “thing” to do these days.  It seems people are blogging about everything:  politics, music, art, religion, their business, my business, your business.  You name it, somebody is blogging about it.  Giving their viewpoint, experience, expertise or opinion.  But  those of you who know me well know this is definitely not me.    I am one of the most anti-technological ( is that a word?)  people out there.  I was the last in my group of college friends when email first came out; I dragged my feet forever before I finally signed up with Facebook; I was ridiculed just 2 weeks ago for saying number sign instead of hashtag when someone was showing me twitter.  You get my drift?  Just totally behind on these types of things.

Well when you walk with God let me tell you, He often yanks you out of your comfort zone and you find you are doing things you never thought you would do.  The Lord has been nagging me about this blog for a few weeks.  Yes I said nagging because every time I would try to push it to the back of my mind for later, it kept coming.  I didn’t even say anything about it to my family, my good girlfriends, no one.  I was terrified! This couldn’t be you God! Really?  But let me tell you how I know this is God.  Because there is no way that Tanesha of herself, in her own mind, in her own imagination  would ever dream up doing this.  Why?  Because blogging was never a dream or a goal of mine.  Yet here I am.   I literally had to just get up right at this moment and do this before I convinced myself once again of all the reasons not to do it.

 That being said, I will simply be blogging about my life, my journey, my experiences,  my thoughts.   So in essence  anything–childhood, life lessons, relationships, medicine, growth, etc. But ultimately because God is my life and Jesus Christ is my life source they have to be at the center of it all. They will certainly be making regular appearances.    This, as is everything in my life is all for God’s glory.

So at the risk of not making this too long I will end here.  Lord I don’t even know how long a blog is suppose to be or how often I should blog.  Is there blogging etiquette? Oh well, as I step out in faith I will learn as I go and the Lord leads.   And believe me this is a huge leap for me. Thank you in advance for all your much needed prayers and support.

Stay tuned for next time when I talk  about the name of the blog  and how I finally took the step to go forward.    And yet still I rise……..

    Tesh as I always say God makes no mistakes so if he led you to do this blog, obey his command. In regards to what you said about technology, I’m with ya. I don’t know anything about blogging or tweeting. I would have looked like a blooming idiot with you because I would have called it a number sign too. Lol. Continue to blog about the your experiences and I’m sure you will be successful in spreading the word.
