I wrote this blog several years ago as I was coming out of a very hard season. It was a good reminder to me today and I hope it will encourage you as well. 💗
I have no words…
“Did you stop writing your blog?” she asked, having noticed I had not written anything in months. I mumbled some excuses, but the reality is:
I have had no words.
It’s hard to write if you have no words. Sometimes God allows circumstances in our life that suck us dry. Not the cracked and dead dry, but the “I have nothing left over” dry. The dry that receives a daily infusion from the Master… but only enough to tackle the day…no reserves…nothing extra.
For 12 months this introvert was drained dry with the responsibilities (and honor) that come with helping someone I love finish her race on earth well. After she crossed the finish line I wanted to write about her. My relationship with Vonette Bright, co-founder of Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru in the U.S.) was unique, challenging and life changing. I wanted to honor my precious Mother-in-Love but I could not find the words.
For 8 months the Master has been refreshing my heart, mind and soul. My well is filling and I feel the water splashing over the sides once again. Words are coming. Slowly.
If you are in a dry place, let the Master give you what you need for today. The well will fill again, but for now rest in the daily provision. Relax and let Him wrap you in His love and grace. Who knew that “dry” could be a blessing?
I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint. Jeremiah 31:25 NIV
But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life. John 4:14 NLT
