300 Posts and Goodbye

by Missy Grant

300 posts today! That is a lot of words - a lot of encouragement - a lot of joy - a lot of tears - a lot of Him. This 300th post comes with sadness as well. After much thought and prayer we are suspending the Sojourner Blog. We have had a really wonderful year with this project. I’m not sure the gals knew exactly what they were getting into when they signed on. I do know that I personally have been blessed by their words, their encouragement, their conviction, their humor, their hearts so much like His. I know many of you have been blessed as well as you have expressed to me many times how these women have encouraged you.

I want you to know they are not going away altogether. If you look down the list on the right hand side of the blog, you will see that several of them have personal blogs. Make sure to stop by and read them. You will continue to be blessed.

For those on the Central Coast, there is a new Community Wide Women’s ministry kicking off. It is called Drawing Near Ministries and is committed to providing opportunities for ladies to come together under God’s word through teaching, worship and evangelizing the lost. They are hosting a summer series starting on Monday June 22 and will be utilizing Beth Moore’s study Stepping Up – A Journey through the Psalms of Ascent.

A few of the gals from Sojourner’s will also be blogging regularly at the Drawing Near Blog. You can find it by clicking here

As a group we want to thank you for your daily commitment to reading Sojourner’s Journal and encouraging us with your kind words. We pray you have been blessed as readers as we have been as contributors.

“Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised, And His greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts. On the glorious splendor of Your majesty and on Your wonderful works, I will meditate…my mouth will speak the praise of the Lord, and all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever.” Psalm 145:3-5,21

Awww!!! I wondered, as each one was dropping off, if this was going to end. Sorry to hear that, but will check out the other blog you mentioned. I'll miss you Sojourners.

I am sorry to see it end. I am reading from Ohio and have shared it with women from here and Georgia who regularly are blessed and redirected to our precious Lord and His Word. I also know that your new ministry will be a blessing to those in your Jerusalem as you equip them in the Word. The Lord Bless your endeavors for HIM.
