From "Writer's Block" to "Exciting Novel"!

Dear Readers,

My wife’s a writer and she sometimes talks about “writer’s block”. She explains it as a barrier that she has where she cannot think how to complete a story line. Merriam Webster dictionary defines it as “a psychological inhibition preventing a writer from proceeding with a piece of writing”.

Do you ever feel a shadow, writer’s block if you will, over you to the point where you feel you cannot move forward in life? You want good things to happen in your life and to have good friends, but you come to the realization that you can’t make them happen on your own? You feel subject to a “humdrum” existence. 

I like the analogy that when we feel this way perhaps it is God trying to get our attention. When we are an “open slate” with nothing on it, when we have no alternatives but Him to turn to, perhaps only then can He complete our story line and make it into an exciting novel.

…let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith… Hebrews 12:1-2

See you next time,
