Hello my dear brothers and sisters! I hope that you all are doing well! I wanted to give you all an update as to what’s happening when it comes to blog features, Instagram features and even my actual blog. I know a lot of you have been extensively waiting on Instagram features and to be added to the directory of shops & businesses. For that, I am truly sorry.
Recently, we had our wonderful Circuit Overseer visit. In one of his talks, Jehovah gave all of us a loving reminder that we constantly need to remember. For me, It felt as if the talk was for me & I know that when that’s the case, it calls for action on my part. It’s always so reassuring and encouraging when you know that it was just what you needed at the proper time.
The focus was on weights. (Hebrews 12:1) Weights in the sense that they represent the things in our life. Sometimes we add weights to ourselves without even realizing it. We may have the absolute best of intentions, but along the way we might have hindered ourselves in our service to Jehovah. So when we realize that we can take action to remove certain weights off of ourselves, in order that we may run the race with endurance, we need to exercise self-discipline and do so. Because when we add weights, we’re making it harder for ourselves.
THE most important thing is that we keep our integrity, faithfulness, and loyalty to Jehovah–and Jehovah alone— in tact.
And so because of that loving reminder from the C.O. visit, material I’ve recently read in our publications, and the talks/instruction we have—I am confident that this is the right decision.
This means that, effective immediately I will no longer accept blog feature or Instagram feature requests. By the end of next week, this email address will not be active. My Instagram and Pinterest accounts will both be deleted by the end of next week as well. The website/blog will still be accessible, but there will be no new posts or features. For those of you that have not yet been featured, I’m truly sorry but I will not be able to do them. While I do feel really bad, I realize that nothing is more important that my relationship with Jehovah & making sure that I prioritize and put the Kingdom first. (Matthew 6:33)
I know that each and every one of you strive to do the same thing. I hope that you all will be supportive of my decision. For the few of you that I have told, you have no idea how much your kind & thoughtful words encouraged me.
