Lately, I’ve just been feeling nothing. What I mean is no words to write. A nothingness when it comes to blogging.
Oh, the words are there — at least in my head. Thoughts swirling around up there Every.Single.Day, and yet to get them out and put them down as meaningful words here on my blog just keeps resulting in — nothing.
I try, at least I mean to try to get a post out every week at the minimum. I try to write and almost every day I sit with my laptop and type. Then I go back and edit, then I go back and re-edit — and then I go back and decide it’s just not right so I hit ‘delete permanently’.
Ever feel like that? That what you have to offer is not good enough? How you’d like to just hit the ‘delete permanently’ button because nothing you seem to do is good enough.
Lately, I’ve been trying to figure out where God wants me and after an hour of chatting over coffee with a dear friend yesterday and talking about this very thing, I came away feeling refreshed.
I came away realizing that sometimes in what I think is the nothingness of my life, is the real stuff — the most important stuff life is made of.
God doesn’t see me as nothing, He doesn’t think that caring for my family day in and day out is nothing. He is in the midst of what I call nothing and tells me I am something!
Dear reader, when you feel that what you are doing is nothing or you are nothing important, may you see that it’s right there in the nothingness you may feel in your life where the realness of life resides.
