This past week, I felt extremely overwhelmed.  I am so behind on reviews, and I feel like I will never get caught up.  And yet, I still sign up for more reviews.  Why do I do that?  Because I want to help promote books and companies.  Switching over from summer to fall does have advantages and disadvantages.
One night, I went to bed feeling especially overwhelmed.  I felt like maybe I should scale back and not do as much reviewing and such.  I wondered why I was doing it, and I had almost convinced myself to scale back.  And then God spoke to me.  Why take the easy way out?  Why stop doing all these reviews and scale back?  If I could do it in my strength, it wouldn’t mean very much.  My blog belongs to God.  That’s right–He is the one who enables me to do what I do.  Therefore, my friends, I may be running behind, but God is enabling me to do what He would have me do.  So keep watching–there are plenty of reviews to come!
Now it’s time for our featured linker of the week. I really love that people come over here and link up each week with us, and as a little thank you I like to feature one of the lovely linkers whose post really spoke to me. Would you like to be featured? All you need to do is to link up below – I pick out a different post to feature every week. This week I’d like to feature this post from Made To Glow.
