When I started this blog a year ago, I had no idea the impact it would have on my own faith and the incredible opportunities it would open up for me to share the gospel and my testimonies.
Perhaps you feel a nudge like I did to start a blog but you’re scared. Unsure. You wonder if your words even matter.
If you feel God is prompting your heart to start a blog, I want to encourage you with these reasons why blogging is a great way for God to use you to minister to others. Or maybe you’re a blogger who just needs some encouragement to keep pressing on…
Why Blogging Is A Great Ministry
1| Your Testimony Matters! You have a unique testimony that could encourage someone.
Your story matters. Your voice matters. Your Testimony matters and no one else can tell it better than you. The trials you’ve been through have deepened your faith in a way that others want to know about, so when you share your struggles and how God helped you to overcome, it’ll encourage someone.
Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death.
God can use our brokenness to reach, touch and heal others. Therefore, we mustn’t allow fear to hinder us from sharing of our testimony.

Blogging is an excellent way to share how God has worked and continues to work in the broken places of your life.
2 | You can reach a wider audience
Have you ever find yourself searching for one thing(nail polish) on the web and end up reading a (college blog), then commenting on the blog and even following the author of that article on FB and Instagram? Lol lol, Well, I have. A blog is a great tool to reach people from all over the world. Using your blog as a means of ministering the gospel could touch and bless the hearts of people living in the Middle East who may have never heard about Jesus Christ and His grace and love.
3 | You can reach a lot of people who are hurting
There are millions of people who have access to the Web, FB, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ etc and you and I have the opportunity to share the word of God with all of them. Not only can you reach a lot of people but you can reach people who are hurting and lonely.
While I don’t think reading Christian blogs should take the place of reading the Bible, I do believe God uses our testimonies to spread the wonder of how He loves us and is involved in the painful places of our lives.
The bible says we should not forsake the church. While we can make great friends on the internet and listen to amazing sermons, if we have the ability to attend church, I believe we should.
Hebrews 10:23-25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching
However, there are people who aren’t physically able to attend church due to illnesses, depression that just leaves them weak to get out of bed and those who have been hurt by the church and is trying to find a safe haven to hear the truth.
4 | Blogging promotes interaction and allows you to meet great friends
Blogging lets you connect with others. Since readers can comment on your blog posts, blogs naturally promote interaction, as you can reply to comments and have conversations with your readers. You never know – some of these interactions may spark ideas for teachings or for other blog posts.
Remember that blogging isn’t a replacement for face-to-face interaction. Rather, it a tool you can use to keep in touch with people.
One of my favourite things about blogging is the friendships I’ve made along the way. I’ve made friendships that genuinely cheer me on in this journey and it’s simply an amazing feeling.
5 | Blogging bulids your own faith
When I first started blogging I never know what my niche was. I knew what I’d call my blog (Miss Know A Little) and I knew I wanted to blog about many different things but I never had a sense of direction. In fact, it was in February of this year that I decided to design my logo that says “Inspiration + walking in faith”. I now acknowledge myself as a faith blogger and with that, I believe I must share how I’m walking in Faith with God daily. I’ve honestly seen how God has used this blog to teach “ME”. Guys, believe me, God will equip us to do His work, let us not allow fear to stop us from ministering and encouraging others and let us walk boldly in faith and inspiration.
