Why I named my blog “Lead Me to Wisdom.”
When I decided I wanted to start this blog, I spent a couple of weeks playing around with possible titles. Unfortunately, a lot of my favorites had already been claimed, so I had to work around that. After I had some that I was satisfied with, I ran them by a friend, who told me which ones stood out to her. Out of those, I chose the one that I felt would best fit the theme that I planned to go with, which is basically growing in Christ. I also wanted something that indicated hey, I’m just a learner, I’m no teacher, I’m just passing on what God is teaching me.
“Lead Me to Wisdom” is the prayer of my heart, and it’s my cry to God in every piece that I publish. Not only does it represent my desire, but it serves as a constant reminder to me to be humble because I’m just a follower too, trying to walk in the footsteps of the Good Shepherd.
(Shout out to M.K. Aneal for asking why I chose my blog name ☺)
So thank you again everybody! I hope to continue blogging for many years to come, and also to keep getting your views, comments, and (when it comes to my fellow bloggers) posts in my feed!
