Writer’s Block

As I was reading thru blog posts this evening, I could identify with thereforegodamaris.com and her latest post. She spoke about her passion for writing and how she desires for it to minister to people, glorify the Lord, and meet needs. This is why I blog. It began as a voice when I had none and later became an unexpected tool.

Over the last few weeks, the creativity has diminished. We all have these seasons of ebb and flow. One minute, we are on top of the world and have it together. The next minute, life is hectic and we do well to survive.

When we hit those moments in life when we have no words, God can make sense of it all. Read this truth from Romans 8:26, 27 – “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.” The Spirit of God prays for us and in our place.

I remember a very low time in my first pastorate. My life was crumbling, and I was devastated. I was so low that I showed up to preach without a clue what God wanted for that day. The music finished, and it was time for me to step to the stage. All I had was my Bible. I paused, and God filled my mouth. I preached from my own brokenness, and only 2 people in the building that day knew the hell I was going through.

I want to assure you that your block (whatever it may be) is only for a season. Maybe it is a season of grief or hardship for you. Rest in the Scripture that says “Weeping May endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning.” Hallelujah and Amen!

  1. I know you don’t want to write posts in advance and schedule them, but maybe you could keep a list of ideas for when something potentially useful comes to mind. 🙂

  2. Amen! Sometimes I forget we are in a season both the good and bad. We shouldn’t take anything for granted and we shouldn’t hold the reins when we have no control. I’m working on trusting the One who holds everything in His hand. 🙂
