“Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” ~ 1 Corinthians 10:31
I don’t know what’s been going on with me this week, but writing my blog has been like pulling teeth. Every time I sit down at the computer…crickets. My mind goes blank and instead of being productive, I end up checking my email from the millionth time or catching up on Facebook.
And sometimes, I think this is okay. We always want to feel like we’re going deeper, accomplishing something, and are generally getting more spiritual every day. But as I like to remind people (and myself), Oswald Chambers wrote, “Even the ocean has a shore.” It’s okay to be shallow sometimes, just like it’s important to give your muscles rest after you’ve worked them. The recovery time is needed in order to get stronger.
That isn’t to say that I’m not spending time with God and that He isn’t working on me right now, rather it’s that it might not be obvious to me this minute. He may be preparing me for something, or need me to let up for a bit so He can work on other things. I don’t really know right now. But He knows, and that’s all that really matters
