My blog does not get a lot of traffic, but I am happy sharing with a modest number of people. The Chapter a Day series during the month of August 2014 was a personal challenge for me to re-engage more fully with God’s word. Snippets here and there weren’t doing me much good. I needed to immerse myself in the Word.
I did not intend to map out a plan of chapters, but of course being a natural planner I created an outline for the first couple of weeks. That outline was not followed. Instead, I stayed true to my original intent and allowed the Holy Spirit to guide me.
What an exhilarating tale, experience and journey the month of chapters has been! And more people than usual, shared the journey with me.
Visits to my blog increased significantly this month. In fact, during August 2014 – a month when I shared a full chapter from the Bible each day – I’ve had more visitors than any other month during the nearly three-year stat history of this blog (Spirit Harvest). My second busiest month was July 2013.
I won’t be able to sustain this volume of posts, but I will continue to share a meaty word with you. 😉 I’m encouraged and hope you are too!
