I haven’t been around the blog much lately. To be honest, I’ve been working through a lot in my heart, and I haven’t been convinced that God has a message for me to write. Really, that’s my first goal as a blogger: to share what I believe God’s called me to share. But lately, life’s been out of control. I’ve been a wreck. Yes, a real wreck :) My poor husband has thought I’m pregnant time and time again, but I’m not (unfortunately!).
Needless to say, I didn’t write my Five Minute Friday this week. I was so excited about the prompt, but when it came down to it, I felt like I was “grasping” for something to say(ha…the prompt was grasp)! Really, I was distracted by Lisa-Jo’s announcement that she’s taking part in the Nester’s 31 Days of writing in October. Now, I’ve read about the Nester’s 31 Days a few times and never in my life thought I’d want to take part in it!! But this time it came at me different. My heart felt impressed to join.
But again, I’ve been a wreck and truth be told, Friday was one of the messiest in awhile. Why? Because I know the topic for my 31 days. It’s about healing. Healing when the heart is overwhelmed with life’s difficulties. Healing from sin, from tragedy, from affliction.
Another truth be told: I’m not brave enough to publish my 31 days through the month of October. I feel like it will be too raw and the subject is much too important: I don’t want to butcher it! Also, the whole point of my topic is to look at the milestones of God’s blessing, and I’ll be walking a fine line as I reflect on His faithfulness in my life. I don’t want to accidentally get off on the wrong track.
So, my plan for the blog is to have a quiet October. I do have a guest post coming up next Monday, so I’ll be back for that! Also, I may publish here randomly throughout the month, maybe for a Five Minute Friday or what not. I still want to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit if He puts something on my heart, but otherwise, I’ll be working on my 31 days topic privately. My hope is to post each day in November!! We will see :) I would love to turn it into an ebook, but I’m not sure I can think that far ahead right now!
With all that said, thanks so much for all your support on my writing journey! I really have an amazing group of readers and appreciate all your encouragement, insight, and prayers! I also want to apologize to those whom I’ve basically dropped off the online world with! If you haven’t read Sarah Mae’s burn-out post, I highly encourage reading it by clicking here. This is basically how I’ve felt! I still love writing, but think I need to do it privately right now! Thanks again!
Love and Blessings,
