I have been journaling since I was a child but only blogging publicly since the fall of 2017.
Like many things we do, blogging has proven to be awkward and uncomfortable. But, in these last three years, I have gained readers from 134 of the 195 countries of the world. The latest person to join me is from Lesotho. Have you ever heard of it? I hadn’t. It is a tiny African country surrounded by the country of South Africa.
While I have many readers from the USA, the majority are not from the United States. In 2017 most were from Brazil. In 2018 – Canada, 2019 – India, and in 2020 it was France (followed closely by China). I suppose they might enjoy the personal journaling and Bible verse pictures I create, but most come to my website to read the Bible Studies or devotions or for prayer. They are searching for something from the Word of God.
To me, that’s amazing!!! And while it is not about numbers, the numbers do tell a story of their own. What’s their story???
Psalm 2:8 – Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen (the nations) for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
Jesus also said, Go ye therefore, and teach all nations. (Matt 28:19)
So, I have asked for the nations and I have asked for them all. Sixty-one nations to go!
