Encouragers Wanted! Apply Within.
1 Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore, encourage one another, and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
When I begin writing Meditations of My Heart many moons ago, I could in no way imagine how many fellow Christian bloggers I would meet along this remarkable journey. These friends have lifted my spirits, inspired my thoughts and increased my faith by leaps and bounds. As I hope and pray that my words here offer encouragement to you as you walk with the Lord, my blogging brothers and sisters always provide encouraging words in their posts, which I'm honored to read.
One vital way we can acknowledge each other as bloggers who make a difference in our lives, is by taking time to leave some love in the comment section. I can't begin to tell you all how dear your comments are to me! That you would take the time to not only read my posts, but also to share your thoughts with me, is the epitome of encouragement.
But what would happen if you love a particular post, try to pen a comment, assume it has "taken," only to discover it never shows up? Wouldn't that frustrate you no end?
Well, that's exactly what has happened to my friend, Floyd, whose blog, But for the Grace of God . . . There Go I, is one of my top tier favorites. Several months ago, Floyd lets me know, via email, that his comments are not appearing on my blog. It's a mystery we try to noodle out together, though I know I'm not much of a help.
Long story short, Floyd thinks he has the matter resolved. He begins leaving comments once again. But when he decides to go back through my posts to check for my responses, he is flabbergasted and appalled to find out that none of his comments are there!
And this is where Floyd and I need your help. Do any of you have an idea of what could be causing this communication breakdown? He uses Wordpress, and I use Blogger, but that, in and of itself, shouldn't cause the difficulty as many of my followers use the former, and have no difficulty in leaving a comment.
If you think you have a solution, or can steer us in the right direction, I ask you to leave detailed info in the comment section. Floyd can't respond, but he can access them to see if anything offered helps resolve the issue we are facing.
Fellow bloggers and friends, we need your encouragement more than ever! Praying that some dear soul among you will have an answer.
God bless you all, and please visit Floyd's marvelous blog at the link I shared above. And don't forget to leave some love!
