So it finally dawned on me the other day (aside from the busy-ness of summer) why I’ve been struggling to write on my blog.
Silence in my walk = Silence on my blog.
I often write to process my thoughts or make record of my journey, and lately I don’t have much to process . . . because I’m not putting myself in a position to have much to think about. Of course, I can give a million excuses, but that’s all they are. Excuses. And no excuse will ever justify being disconnected to the Giver and Sustainer of life.
So I’m working on diving back into the deep end. Back to reading some books and trying to be intentional about quiet times and study times. I’m not saying times of silence aren’t good for everyone once in a while (I mean, really, how much do you need to hear ME talking??) At the same time, I’ve found that my blog is a good indicator for myself of where I am spiritually.
And I guess I’ve just made myself accountable to you, too. Another beautiful thing about living in community!
So how are you?
