I am struggling with a very serious case of writer’s block. I have stared at this same page for the last two days…praying and thinking about what to write. The noise and chaos of my week has left my brain frazzled and stretched thin.
As I sat and stared at this page I wondered how on earth I could possibly complete these 31 days when I have missed a few, how could the message get across when I have gaping holes in my post history. Then it hit me, this is exactly what embracing God’s pace looks like when applied. The hard part is we want it to look perfect and well put together, we want it to make perfect sense…but it doesn’t always make sense when you are deep in the middle of a learning season. It certainly won’t look how we want it too.
God wants to walk this with us, He wants to fill those gaps. One of the most important things that I have taken away from what God has taught me is this…When we embrace His pace it is about following His lead, leaning into Him and listening to Him. This is not about what we can do in our own efforts but what God can accomplish in us when we allow Him to work and move. It is changing our perspective to something higher.
Despite the writer’s block and the gaps that still need to be filled, I am giving Him each of those places. I am handing our need over to Him and asking Him to fill our gaps, asking Him to fill those places that still need work and love.
