Back on track

Stuck because I’ve been off the road!

Do you ever have, how could I have been so dumb” experiences? When you suddenly realise you’ve had something completely wrong, especially if it has been in front of other people.

I had such an experience this week, and the dumbness has been public — on this blog in fact.

For several months I have been floundering around trying to figure out’ what I want to be writing about, in some ways wanting to imitate others who have sophisticated artistic blogs. The problem being that the creators of such blogs are sophisticated artistic people whose passion is creating fantastic work. In my more realistic moments I have to concede that such a description does not fit me well.

Then I happened to be reading 1 John chapter 2, particularly:

And the world is passing away along with it’s desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever. (1 John 2:17)

Suddenly I could see why I felt so stuck for writing inspiration — there is a topic I am passionate about: God and knowing Him through Jesus Christ. The reason I’ve been stuck is because I haven’t even been on the road! Heading off on my own path has simply resulted in me becoming lost.

After resolving to focus on writing about God stuff’, the ideas have begun to flow again. Back on track!
