Some days I look at the screen and find an absence in the place where words should be written. It's like there's this big emptiness in the void where thoughts and feelings should be. I guess a seasoned writer would say that's writers block at it's best.
In that silence though is where I find a lesson brewing. Maybe it's a reminder of how we're not made to rely on ourselves alone for all we endure in our time here. It could be a sampling of the silence that comes with the peace that only Jesus can offer to us. How many people do you know who are still trying to fill that hole in their heart with worldly things? There are days when I see it so much that it makes me a little angry..and days when I get angry at myself for doing it too.
This year has ended and began with me learning to rely on myself for so much less then I ever imagined. Yesterday was a roller coaster of emotions, questioning, and questioning only to be reminded again of the unconditional love and faithfulness of our father.
I can see him shaking his head at me saying "When will she ever truly let go?"
Most of us want to feel like we're fulfilling our purpose.
So on days when I find silence in the place of what I should share I just let go. I find some good praise music, sing along, and in that time of praise I find my strength to trust, and I pull up the URL for my blog space and I just begin to type.
While my mind says this is such a small thing to offer, I know my heart is reassured that it's exactly what someone needs to hear today. That's how it works right? We trust, we leap, and then God says "Very Well Done."
"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!' Matthew 25:21
I want to thank Kelli for being the kind of friend that allows me to share whatever I feel is put on my heart. I know this space is her own, and I appreciate her welcoming me here so openly and allowing me the chance to share.
I'm not always so serious :) In fact Kelli would say I'm a little "sassy" most of the time. Feel free to come check out my space here IDelightinyou. No bites..just nibbles :)
Thanks again to Kelli, and a wonderful rest of the week to all of you beautiful people. Xo Xo
