I've been in a literary lull.
How weird. I usually don't find myself at a loss for words - but here lately I haven't had anything fun or insightful to say. I don't like it. I truly enjoy discovering new truths in everyday occurances. And I enjoy sharing those discoveries with y'all, here on this blog. I just haven't had "it" lately. Know what I mean?
I'm not in a lull because life has been dull. That isn't it. Life has actually been full and eventful as of late. My mom is visiting from Texas. I got great news from some tests I just had done. I've been reading some wonderful books. I've been through some humbling experiences. I have spent some time with good friends. And so on. I've just been restless in the writing department. I want to write and share - I just can't spit it out the way I want to.
Maybe it is because I have been reading some really awesome blogs lately - and I feel a little inferior. Maybe it is because I've been a tad tired. Maybe my mind has just been preoccupied. Or perhaps - God is just wanting me to shut-up long enough for Him to teach me a thing or two from HIS written word - and the writings of others. Hmm. That might be it. Or maybe I'm just reading into too much. I'm known for doing that.
I dunno. Either way - I'm ready to be back in action. Do y'all know that song by Aaron Shust, "Give Me Words"?......
Give me words to speak
Don't let my spirit sleep
Cause I can't think of anything worth saying
Every night, every day I find that I have nothing I can say
So I stand here in silence awaiting your guidance
I'm wanting only Your voice to be heard
Let them be Your words
Yep. Aaron said it just right.
(Go here to read Aaron's "song journal" for these lyrics. Pretty interesting.)
I want to feel all wordy again.
