Praising God for 400 Followers and over 10,000 views!

Okay, God. You know this blog is not about numbers and stats. It’s all about You. This is Your blog! You know I am nervous each time I see someone new is following me. It still makes me think of the word stalker. But You also know that in following Your lead to open my settings from private to public, and to communicate with others, trusting You with likes, comments, followers, and the many awards, tags, and challenges that You use to keep me actively communicating, that You have blessed me with the richest of community, friends, and new family in Christ! All over the world, I have the dearest of hearts as friends! People who mean so much to me! Yet with so much love pouring from You through them, I can still so easily forget others are reading what You and I talk about.

Poetry, blogging, awards, tags, challenges, struggles with fear, anxiety, depression, chronic illness, and so many other things You and I discuss, and then You completely take me by surprise with over thousands of views, and thousands of the most encouraging and uplifting comments (praise Your name for the ones that testify for You and glorify You!) from some of the most amazing souls You have blessed me with. And oh what wonders You do for my soul to make so many of them fellow lovers of Christ! How my heart just flows over with such love to read and share You in everything! ❤
How Your heart must smile! 🙂

So let me share with the world the numbers You have allowed this blog… as a praise to You! Thank you for Thought for Change becoming the 400th Follower! Bless her blog, Lord! And her life! It was so wonderful to read how she loves you most! ❤
My favorite part of the stats is actually on the Insights page, where it has Comments by Authors. It seems to keep track of the top 6 Authors (aka bloggers) who are commenting. I love seeing that change around! It reflects the many God filled conversations with Your dear children loving one another through cherishing everything about You!

Right now, the top 6 are:
1. Discovering Your Happiness (Lovely Anita, Lovely A, Miss Lovely)
2. Red Letters (Hayley)
3. The Word (Margaret)
4. Invisibly Me (Caz)
5. Not Easily Broken
6. Walking With The Way (Arnya)

Praise You for each one of them, and those who may have simply commented Congrats or nice, and only once. If they have given praise in any form… it’s all Yours! ❤

I finish by praising You with the wonderful hymn You taught me years ago:
To God Be the Glory, hymn lyrics by our dear Fanny Crosby

To God be the glory, great things He has done;
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
And opened the life gate that all may go in.

Refrain

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory, great things He has done.

O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
To every believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

Refrain

Great things He has taught us, great things He has done,
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
But purer, and higher, and greater will be
Our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see.

Refrain
