Yep, I got it.
Here I was, writing away about all things Godly, and I just couldn’t do it anymore.
I sat down, staring at my screen, waiting for colorful words of wisdom to dance onto the page. Then I kept waiting. I made coffee. I ate a sandwich. I did laundry. Still no wisdom.
Then, I got a phone call. I am going to keep my personal life to myself, so I’ll just say that this caller pointed out a major issue that I need to work on. She made me feel about 3″ tall.
In other words, she popped my self-righteous balloon.
We all cycle through periods of humility, confidence, and self-righteousness. I am now back to square one; solidly standing in humility.
Fortunately, this also means I have broken through my Christian writer’s block. I had been so wrapped up in trying to teach, that I forgot I still had a lot to learn. Seeing my own problems in the spotlight has reminded me why I first started this blog. I wanted to encourage other people to love in a world of hate, not tout myself as an authority on theology.
So, I’ll keep writing. Hopefully, you will keep reading. And whether I have a million followers, or just one, I know I’ll keep learning.
