I’ve had writers block lately. It isn’t that I didn’t want to write and post on the blog. I did. But also had a lot of fear surrounding my writing. I had begun to let the Dream-Stealer sneak into my head and whisper things about my worth. As a writer. As a mom. As a wife. As a child of God.
But you know what? Those ideas were lies. Fear is a liar. Comparison is a thief. They lurk in the corners of my mind and tell me I’m not good enough, not creative enough, not talented enough, not driven enough. They discourage me from trying new things and following my passions. They make me feel small and unwanted.
But the truth is, I don’t have to listen to them. Not anymore! Because I am a beloved child of God. I am made worthy by the blood of Jesus Christ. I am not the most eloquent or creative or interesting writer in the world. I may not be the best wife or mother all the time. But I am something much more important. I am a redeemed, chosen daughter of the King of Kings! He has plans for me. He know my dreams and my ideals. He knows that deep down beneath all the crud and the lies I’ve believed, I want to be more like Jesus and be a voice for Truth.
So here I am, writing this short post, sending my words out there into the world like a one-two punch in the Devil’s face. He can talk all he wants, but I know that I am more than a conqueror and that my God has good things in store for me. And I know that that old Dream-Stealer is doomed for destruction.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
…in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[k]neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:28, 37-39
P.S.–I have a new project in the works that is going to get me writing regularly again. Next week I will be launching a brand new blog link-up called “Wellness Wednesday.” I hope you will be here to check it out! And if you are a blogger, I hope you will participate with a post on a topic related to health and wellness!
