Getting Unstuck

Anatomy of a Southern California Winter

Delay.

Avoidance.

Trouble thinking.

Why is it that the most important things seem so difficult to start?

I find myself this morning with a heart-urge to write and a rusty response from the rest of my body. I have effectively stalled from what I said I wanted to do for the last 5 minutes…

Maybe another sip of coffee…

Focus, Sheree!

A Dry Well

There was a time when I’d write these blogs, full of inspiration, and with a connectedness between my brain, body, heart, and the Holy Spirit where words would just flow from my fingertips, often at a speed I felt I could not contain or keep up with.

What happened?

All of a sudden the “well” dried up.

The urge to write subsided and the flow stopped up.

I figured it was a season… maybe I didn’t need to write anymore.

But, now I think it wasn’t a matter of being done…

It was a matter of being done with that season.

New Wells

“He [Isaac] moved away from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it; so he named it Rehoboth, for he said, ‘At last the Lord has made room for us, and we will be fruitful in the land.’

Then he went up from there to Beersheba. The Lord appeared to him the same night…”
—Genesis 26:22-24a

There is a time for the wells to dry up…

Because God wants to do something NEW.

And so, here I am, with proverbial shovel out, surveying the land and with an ear tuned to Jesus looking for a new site to dig deep.

And with a heart convinced, since journeying with Him far from the old wells, that this God of new things, of great things, of impossible things is inviting me to dig deep and reach for…

More.

Because God is yet again making room…

“‘Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of past. Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.’”
—Isaiah 43:19-20

And now, I am ready to respond.

So stay tuned for more.
