I started off this year very excited because I could see exactly where I was going. I started my blog and couldn’t wait to fill up my website with pages and posts. I excitedly told my family and friends of my progress and they were excited for me.
There I was, hitting all the social networking sites I had heard of. There I was, reading up on how to connect on these sites. There I was, making connections, both old and new. There I was, writing and reeling out my posts. There I was, checking with one eye closed, to see my site visits and views. There I was, waiting for the notifications “comment waiting your approval” in my email inbox.
Suddenly! I’m in front of my computer, fingers on keyboard but not pressing. Suddenly! the words fly off my head. Suddenly! I almost can’t think. Suddenly! I want to write like her, and her, and her, and her! Oh! What now!
What now? Yes, what now! Where is my excitement? Where are my ideas? Where are my words? Is this the end? …but I only just started! Oh, I give up! Blogging is not for me. It was good while it lasted.
I looked into the eyes of my five month old son. He seemed to look back into my eyes saying, “Mummy you just started, it’s not going to happen over night. You have to keep at it. You can’t give up. It is not about blogging, it is about fulfilling a purpose with your writing, just the way the Lord allows you to. It doesn’t have to be perfect.”
“So, write Mummy, write! If nothing comes to you, then write nothing. Thank the Lord and keep at it. Give yourself the space to grow. Don’t be anxious for anything. Talk to God about it, knowing you are a success already. Take a glass of water and relax.”
If you are in this place right now my dear sister, don’t give up. If the words don’t come today, they will come tomorrow. Just keep at!
“Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.” Philippians 4:6-7 (The Message Bible).
See, I just wrote this post!
