The Simple Work of Your Hands

Written by , Posted in faith, life, writing

“You see your blog as a ministry, don’t you?” he asked, assuming. I’d been blogging for about a year, but I’d never considered it that way til that moment. “Ministry” sounded a bit too grandiose for something so mundane as a blog.

I just used an online space to tell my stories. I didn’t preach the Gospel; I didn’t heal the sick; I didn’t tend to widows and orphans. I just noticed and I thought and I felt and I wrote. And people came to that space to take in a little of life as I saw it, to laugh and wonder and cry alongside me.



For the past two months, Lisa Colón DeLay has been hosting The Spiritual Guidance for Bloggers Series, and today it’s my honor to close out the event. But my post isn’t just for bloggers– it’s for everyone who’s ever wondered where they might find a place to serve God and His people.

Please join me at Lisa’s place to continue reading The Simple Work of Your Hands!

    It takes a lot of clicks some days to read your posts… but they are always worth the read. Thanks Tamara for the inspirational way you share your heart and minister to so many through your words.

      Sorry for the extra clicks– the automatic Facebook and Twitter notifications go out as soon as I post the jump here, but I try to make it easy for everyone by just linking directly to wherever I’m writing throughout the rest of the day. I really appreciate your following the trail of clicks and reading!

    You know, I think sometimes people think they need to “do” ministry (quote Scripture, speak Christianese, do Christian-type things) as something outside of themselves…instead of realizing that ministry simply comes from the heart as a daily occurrence of living their lives in a Godly manner and a basic desire to serve God in whatever is in front of them.

      I think you’re right. It’s a relief when you realize how much simpler it is than what you’d imagined.
