Good Blogging Advice & A Mighty Verse

Hello everyone and God bless you all!  The blogging issue I was having with my comments being sent to people’s spam has been fixed, praise God!  I chatted and emailed with WordPress support yesterday and they said they fixed it on their end.  They were very professional and helpful and I am thankful for that.  Thanks again WP Support Team!  I also want to share the tips the support team gave me as they apply to every blogger here on WordPress.

Apparently the system thought I was a spambot because I was leaving so many comments on all of your blogs.  Funny, I guess I need to slow down a bit.  I am coming up on my one year blogging anniversary on August 10th.  I am home due to Celiac, so I do this full time.  The readership on my blog passed 700 a few days ago (including email subscribers), glory to God, so I keep very active working for the Lord all day.  I read a lot of blogs and leave a lot of comments and I receive a lot of comments on my posts.  This is a full time ministry and I take each comment to heart.  I always try to respond in a timely manner.  I love chatting with you all!  Just don’t want to make the system freak out!  Here is what they emailed me after resolving the issue:

“Hi Ryan:

Thanks for filling that form out – I was able to make a few changes on our end that should help fix the issue.  Please note that any comments you’ve left prior to this will still need to be found and moderated by each blog owner.

In the future, you should slow down the rate of which you’re commenting on various blogs – that behavior does mimic a spambot and was why you got caught by our automated tools in the first place.

I hope that helps!  Let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything else.

Best,

Good advice for all of us who blog our hearts out!  You don’t want the system to think you are a spambot!  We all take time to communicate with each other and it’s important that our comments go through correctly.  I appreciate everyone’s help in checking your spam folders!  Thank you for caring!

It’s a beautiful sunny day today, so I was finally able to mow the lawn after all the rain.  While I was outside, I kept thinking about the verses I read this morning regarding not worrying.  One verse stood out the most to me as the Lord spoke it to my heart:

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

Jesus speaking in Matthew 6:33

You see, it’s been a trying week.  I have been concerned and praying about financial issues and I beat myself up sometimes about not being able to work a normal full time job anymore due to Celiac.  Although I have lifted it up to the Lord, He knows it has been heavy on my heart.  God loves us so much more than we could ever fathom!  He knows exactly what we need and He has never failed to provide for us.  When there has been trouble, He has delivered us from it.  Where there has been a need, He has provided and He has done so abundantly!  It is beautiful how the Lord speaks to our hearts!  He is our loving Father and He cares for us!  Thank You Lord!

Pike’s Peak today.  Praise God for the sunshine!

Whether it is trouble with my blog or my health or our finances or whatever, God is in control and all I need to do is seek Him first!  Brothers and Sisters in Christ, is your heart heavy today?  Give it all to God is my advice!  Let it go and lift it up!  Whatever it is that is weighing you down today, give it to Jesus!  He loves you and He will lift you up!

Grace and peace to you all!

  1. This is timely, Ryan. I needed it! I’ve also been home for some months now without a job and at times, it weighs me down as certain needs rise up which must be met. But now I believe the Lord Himself will make a way and provide for me and all those I must help. Thanks for this. Bless you!

  2. That must be what I am—a spambot! 😂😜 This was a really good post, gorgeous pictures. And just remind that enemy that you do have a job-you and your wife have had to reverse roles a little, because of your sickness, but you are right where God needs you to be! 🙏🙌

  3. Thanks Ryan for your beautiful pictures, gosh, Pikes Peak is so majestic today! And, thanks for your reminder to give our concerns and worries to Jesus. He always comforts me when I call on Him and I know He is with me… with my knee surgery Friday I am exactly doing just that. I agree with Renee, too, you are where God needs you to be! Amen.
