I’ve had a couple of friends remind me that it’s ok to take a day off from blogging. Usually they say this when I’m complaining over text about trying to come up with something to blog about that day. And I tend to reply that I’m too stubborn to take a day off. I like to create my own problems and then complain about them!

But seriously, even as I struggle to find something to say (it’s getting harder the longer this goes on!) each day, I also find writing a daily blog a meaningful way of helping. It is my gift to my church family, and other loved ones.

I wasn’t sure how to express or fully explain this. But as I was scrolling through my photos on my phone, I found this:

These blog entries are my footprints! They are meant to lead others in faith, to encourage others to keep going, to bless you in the midst of these hard times.

I encourage you to find ways to make your own faithful footprints. It could be as simple as a kind gesture to your quarantine roommates (your spouse, kids or other household members that are sheltering in place with you). It could be making a phone call to someone who will be happy to hear your voice. It could be asking someone to pray for you when you’re having a hard day, and offering to pray for them as well.

Until tomorrow, dear friends, keep making faithful footprints and trust that God will use your faithful footprints to lead others to a growing relationship with Him!
