A Humble Request
I sit here unable to write anything that feels significant. It’s been this way the last couple of weeks.
I know why. But I still try to force thoughts and ideas when honestly my attentions are directed elsewhere.
Today as I sat down to stare at the screen for another bout of writer’s block, I felt compelled to not try to drum up some clever idea or leadership principle, but to simply share why I’m somewhat quiet.
This week is actually a huge week for me.
I know that other people do this all the time, but for me… this is stretching.
I’ve been pouring my heart, soul and prayers into preparing and I simply am out of ideas for here on the blog. (I hope you understand… I suspect you do. You’re always more gracious with me than I am with myself.)
So, could I ask for your prayers?
I really long for your prayers to use these moments wisely… to speak things that need to be said rather than things I want to say… for God to do His work through me… for clarity of thought and calmness of spirit.
Sometimes I wonder how I get myself into these things – the things that you are dying to do as a writer and a communicator, but when the time comes, scare the pants off of you? These are the moments that remind me that I need to live with “open hands” – open to the opportunities God places in my hands but careful to not take control and squash the life out of them.
Thanks in advance for your prayers. I’m so grateful for each of you!
** And by the way, if you are going to be at any of these events, will you please say “hi”. It would be great to see a friend 🙂
