There’s no plan of coming to a stop


I seem to be having a writer’s block even though my mind is racing these days.

I’m not posting as much because lately I’ve had new responsibilities and deadlines, uncertainties and struggles that are getting in the way of my personal writing and dreaming.  I’m not making a fuss about them because they’re good and some, if anything, are stretching me out of my comfort zone which can be a worthy thing.

Honestly, it’s probably a writer’s block because I’m just trying to keep up with life.

But there’s points in life where you’re put (often whether you like it or not) in places to shake life up a little bit.  They are those points in life that might be pointing you in a new direction.

Maybe there’s writer’s blocks with a holy purpose to make you start paying attention to things still unseen. 

Does any of this make sense to me?

My blog posts have not been as frequent lately and I can’t say it’ll be a Monday, Wednesday, Friday thing like it used to be for the next little bit.  There might not be a schedule of posts like I’ve done in the past and that’s so weird for me because I like to schedule everything.  But for this, for now, it’s going to be when I feel the need. 

And that’s OK.

Because, there’s no plan of coming to a stop

There’s no plan to stop because I still feel the need to write, encourage and post. 

There’s no plan to stop giving credit, glory and thanks to God for all the gifts He so freely gives. 

My “gift radar” stays on because it becomes part of who you are when you notice them with intention and purpose…the purpose to remember who Jesus is and what He’s done for you and for me.



Still counting and thanking God for the gifts and joys He longs and loves to give:
