a writing exercise

I’ve been having a hard time writing lately. Every time I try to think about what I want to share here I come up blank. God has been teaching me things, stretching me beyond my own ideas of who I am and what my life should be, but I don’t feel like I can solidly nail down a lesson or one cohesive topic to blog about. There have been no tidy bows, just a lot of “apart from me you can do nothing” echoing in my head and my heart over and over.

I was at a concert recently, and the songwriter introduced a song that he said took him years to write. “I couldn’t get the words right because I hadn’t learned the lesson yet” he said.

I think that’s where I’m at. I haven’t learned the lesson yet, I can’t get the words right. I’m a work in progress. Listening for my King to sing a new song over me.
