The last few months have been challenging for most of us. Our routines have changed; our social lives are very different than they once were; and for many, the economic situation has been difficult. What used to be normal isn’t normal anymore. Even our worship experiences are no longer familiar. I know that there are at least some of you who are feeling lost and disconnected.
I, personally, have been struggling with writer’s block, creativity block, and lack of motivation. I’ve been procrastinating about working on projects—even the ones that I actually want to do. There are some days that my feeling of being disconnected works its way into my relationship with God and makes my faith feel flat. I need to be re-energized in my faith and in my calling as a writer and teacher.
Fortunately, Isaiah 40:31tells me, and you, that we can move beyond our current challenges and be re-energized:
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.
This is great news! If I put my trust in God, He will re-energize my faith, and give me new strength to pursue my calling without growing weary or faint. If you put your trust in God, you too will be given the strength you need to travel through these difficult days. We can soar on wings like Eagles.
Note: In a couple of weeks, I will be participating in a special conference designed for women who are called to be writers and speakers. I’ll be taking a break to re-focus and prepare, but I plan to return to blogging sometime in August, possibly with a new schedule and plan. Thank you for your faithful support. Please pray for discernment and clarity about how God wants me to use my gifts for His glory. I know He has a plan and I need to put my trust in Him.
