Distraction & "Nothing to write about"

T.V. is off. All is quiet. (...with the exception of my cat cleaning herself... be quiet Maddie!) The pain of my toothache is dulled and therefore my earache pain has also dulled. I think I am distraction free??... ... great, the cat just climbed into the back of the couch. Ugh. I'll just ignore it even though I should be trying to get her out... Trying to write a blog post here! ;)

Lord, life is so full of distractions! Help me keep my eye on You. Ashamed to say that it's very often that I feel like Peter, climbing out onto the water, only to take my eyes off Jesus when I realize "I'm not supposed to be able to walk on water!!" and then I begin to sink, just like he did. O' we of little faith... Why do we take our eyes off Him when we know the outcome is a mouthful of salty water?!

I really want to a write a blog post every day, but it seems like I always find an excuse to distract me -- by the way, I pray that I don't write any posts in my fashion blog until I have written a post on this blog that same day.

Sometimes there's just a mental block (or a heart block?!) when I try writing here.

Many days I think that I won't have anything to write about and I don't want to write a post that has no substance to it... but the Spirit is making me realize right at this very moment that that's about the silliest thing I could ever say!! The Holy Spirit just brought some lyrics to my mind - from a song that we sang in church just this morning. I had never heard it before, but it was so full of truth and beauty. It basically says exactly the opposite of what I've been thinking/worrying about with this blog:

Could we with ink the ocean fill
And were the skies
of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill
And every man a scribe by trade,
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry,
Nor could the scroll
contain the whole
Though stretched from sky to sky.

Thank you God for putting it all into perspective. It is NOT about ME!!!!! I have been thinking that I have nothing to write about because my life is basically, what some people might call, BORING! I very rarely have any of real excitement going on -- well what some people might consider excitement anyway... I go to work (new challenges, different day), come home, watch T.V., go on Facebook, blog a bit (not here as often as I should, but on my fashion blog), go to bed - rinse, repeat.

But this blog - again - is NOT about ME!!! I'm not sure when I started thinking that it IS about me, but that stops tonight! Maybe sometimes I even think that on days when "nothing" of spiritual significance has happened to me that I have nothing to write about, but those are the days that I should be writing so that I can think upon God and all His wonder and glory and I will see that when you have Christ in your heart, there is no such thing as a day that is devoid of spiritual significance!!

If I just dwell on those thoughts how could I ever, ever, EVER run out of things to write about?!!!

As the lyrics in this song so aptly put it: To write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry.

Thank You Jesus ♥
