I love sharing my story. I hope that by doing so, I can reach people who are on the fence about Catholicism and bring God glory by showing them the beauty of Christ’s Church. But lately I’ve wondered if that is my only motivation. I find myself checking my blog stats often and sometimes feeling a little bummed when I don’t have as many views as I thought I might. I try to tell myself that it’s just because I was hoping I could reach more people, but part of me thinks that it might be because I want my name to be known. I want followers. Recently, I’ve been getting requests from multiple sources outside of my blog to share my story with their followers/viewers/listeners as well. While I want to help more people find the Catholic Church, I fear that I am in danger of wanting to be “famous,” having my name known in the Catholic world. But that is not why I started sharing my story and that is not where I want to end up. I’m going to have to think and pray more carefully from now on before accepting these outside offers to share. I only want to do this for God’s glory, not my own.
