This is the view of our mountains, yet clouds lay thick and low and I can't see the majestic reality that is normally within view.
I'm here, yet I have felt this need to pull back and refocus. I don't know exactly why -- if it's a good thing or simply too many distractions -- but all I know is that, even when I try to sit down and write, I feel like I have nothing in me, like I'm looking out into a thick fog and there is just no clarity.
I guess that's what we call writers block!
So, friends, I'm here. I'm just quiet. Praying and believing that the words will come as the weeks shake out and I remain determined to be consistent with one thing alone -- time with the Lord, simply accepting this time of quiet, of listening and obeying.
This has become such a precious place for me to share my heart and have you join in conversation. I don't want to be quiet. I don't want another week to go by without a (real) post and I don't want to lose readers, but I also must never forget why I'm here in the first place -- to reflect Christ, who fills me with the creativity and inspiration in order to reveal glimpses of heaven in everyday life. I do that best by trusting God rather than statistics.
Trusting that there really is something beautiful just beyond the haze.
What do you do when you have writers block?
