Shouting into the abyss

Everyone who has to use blogs or social media as part of there work spends time wondering “am I shouting into the abyss?” If what you write doesn’t get likes or comments you wonder is it connecting with anyone? Do my words matter?

The only one in the room?

I think it has to come down to the reason why you write. If it is to have your words praised by the largest possible audience then you are probably going to be disappointed. If, like me, you write because you need to get thoughts out of your head and into the world in a tangible form then you are probably okay. In all honesty, hope is that what I write will touch one person.

When we read of Jesus in the New Testament much of what we read is about his encounters with individuals. Whether changing the life of Zacchaeus or the Samaritan woman at the well or meeting Saul on the road to Damascus, Jesus often affected many by touching one life.

My hope is what I right hear and on Facebook and elsewhere will occasionally touch one person, one soul. If it achieves more then that is wonderful but to touch one soul that then touches others would be wonderful
