Blank Screen

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Philemon 1:25

Confession? Sometimes it’s really hard to sit down and write a devotion.

Sometimes, I stare at a blank screen for what seems like hours.

Sometimes, I type and backspace over and over again.

Sometimes, I close my laptop, frustrated because I don’t have anything to say.

I feel lately that my mood has become sort of a blank screen as well.   I am staring at a blank screen.   I am backspacing.  I am frustrated.

Monotony, disappointment, and conflict seem to have all moved in and made me feel just sort of well…blank.

I am so thankful to be a child of Christ in seasons like this. Jesus knows my heart and He knows my troubles. He draws me to the Word for encouragement. He points me to Sisters in Christ for support.  He reminds me that I am not alone and I never will be.

Jesus is always there for me. Walking beside me daily, even on those days when I am discouraged and down.When everything just seems empty and dark, He helps to turn on the switch.

Filling the blankness with His light.

  1. In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with God and the WORD was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that had been made.In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1 :1-5
