A Blogger's Prayer

Dibagikan oleh Dhieta at 5:19 pm
Hari ini kantor sepiiiiii... :p dan aku ngga ada kerjaan, cuma browsing-browsing seharian. Setelah capek baca-baca ASEAN Charter (ini lagi belajar dikit-dikit soal ASEAN >,<), akhirnya cari yang lucu-lucu dan nemu puisi lucu disini.

A Blogger's Prayer

I am no longer my own blogger, but Thine, O Lord.

Refine me with each post how You will, rank me how You will.
Put me to service, or put me to suffering.
Let me post for Thee or be put aside for Thee,
Lifted high, only for Thee, or brought low, all for Thee.
Do with me and each post whatever You will, because You alone know best.

Let me no strive but submit. Let me not compete but care
Let me not desire hits but holiness
Let me be a follower, instead of seeking followers

Let my blog full of Thee, and let it be empty of me.
Let me crave all things of Thee, let me care nothing of this world.
Let my words be worthy of the greatest of audiences : You.
And You are enough.

May I write not for subscribers... but only for Thy smile.
May my daily affirmation be in surety of my atonement,
not the size of audience.
May my identity be in the innumerable graces of Christ,
never, God forbid, the numbers of my comments.
May the only words that matter in my life not be the ones I write on screen ---
but the ones I live with my skins.

I freely and heartily yield every sentence, every title, every post, every comment... or no comments...
all to Thine pleasure and perfect will.

My only fame is that I bear Your name
My only glory is the gift of Your Grace
My only readership, Your eyes that seek to and fro to find a heart hard after You.
Make this so, oh Lord...

Yahweh, You alone are My God, not Google
Jesus, You alone are my Saviour, not site meters
And Holy Spirit, You alone are my Comforters, not comments

So be it, today, yesterday, and every post to come.

This is my prayer I have made on earth and over this keyboard... let it be ratified in Heaven.
Amen.

Haduh, begitu baca, ane langsung jatuh cinte... Menegur dan mengingatkan kalau aku ini cuma pena, cuma alat, yang punya cerita Tuhan, yang punya kata-kata Tuhan juga, yang punya blog ini juga Tuhan, aku cuma pengelola. Jadi semua pujian, semua penghargaan, hanya milik Tuhan.  Lalu pada akhirnya aku seharusnya menulis untuk Allah, jadi kalaupun ngga ada manusia yang baca ya aku ngga boleh kecewa, yang penting Allah sebagai pembaca utama pasti baca, dan itu sudah cukup^^

Diingatkan juga kalau even dalam berblogging ria, doa juga penting. Kalo mau bikin post doa dulu, supaya yang tertulis adalah kehendak Tuhan. Doain juga blogger-blogger yang lain, supaya semakin rajin nulis, ngga patah semangat, dan dipakai semakin memuliakan Tuhan dan memberkati lebih banyak orang. terlebih doain temen-temen yang baca, supaya lewat blog ini mereka bisa tangkap isi hati Tuhan dan hidupnya diubahkan.

Fiuuuuhhh... Thanks God for revealing this part for me! 

Semakin diingatkan juga dengan tag line di blog itu: 

Upside Down Blogging
with Jesus increasing and us decreasing
-logo ini bisa diambil codenya, buat dipasang di blog kita-
With Jesus increasing and I decreasing, I pray that finally all you read in this blog is not about me anymore, but about Christ...


God bless,
