On this first Wednesday morning of the year, I’d like to renew my committment to my blog. Life has thrown us a couple of curve balls, in recent months, that distracted me from my desire to write. Lots of up and downs, some really big ups, and even some really big downs, have made their way into our lives. But through them all, the Lord has been near to us. He has been right here close, never far away.
Jesus is so good at making things new and good, and just when I didn’t think I could feel anything else but pain, He came and gave me joy. There is a deeper knowing that can come out of the place of sorrow and loss, and through it comes an intimate understanding of how blessed those are who mourn, for they are comforted.
Jesus is still healing my heart. It takes time to mend such deep hurts, but it’s just a matter of time. And in the meantime, He is near to me, closer than a brother. I am being loved by Love Himself, and I am being comforted by The Comforter.
So once again, I have the desire to write again, and this is my committment…to spend some time (some time) every Wednesday morning doing a little writing. And maybe I will find some time in other places of my week to devote to my blog too, at least that is my hope. I once read that “The desire to write grows with writing.” I hope to find that true. And perhaps it will lead to more healing, and to something that will glorify the Lord.
