It’s 3:00 AM… I am staring at my computer and desperately trying to think of something to write about.
I have come to the conclusion that my tank is empty. I got nothing. I cannot think of anything to write about and if I am completely honest, for the first time in many years, I have no desire to write.
I have spent the greater part of the past year writing my first book. The book is now entering week three since it was published and it has surpassed my expectations. I have received many positive responses and sales of the book have been wonderful. (Click on this link if you would like to purchase or check out my book)
I had absolutely no idea how much this endeavor would drain my creativity and my desire to write. So, while I feel no desire to write during this time, I have decided to use the time to reflect on the blessings in my life.
I will be taking some time off from writing and hopefully, in time, I will have the desire to write once again. I will post to stay in touch and while it may come back sooner than I think, I believe it will be some time before I will be writing like I once did.
I can look back over many decades and reflect on God’s provision and care for me and my family. I can say, with amazement of how God works, that He has taken care of us even when we didn’t know we were in danger.
I am aware of the times in my life I failed to recognize His guiding hand and how He has protected me from things that I did not realize were a threat.
It’s funny how we rarely see God’s provision in real time, but as we reflect we find He has walked with us every step of our lives. He never leaves us or forsakes us. He is, indeed, a good and kind Father caring for His children.
The great and wonderful God of eternity has cared for us every breath of our lives.
And so, today, as I reflect on His provision… I breathe out these words, “Thank you, Lord, you are much too kind. Thank you.”
