Seasonal Silence

For the few of you who check out my blog on a regular basis, you may have noticed that it's been a while since I posted anything. I don't have a particular reason for not writing other than the fact that I haven't felt inspired lately. Not that everything I post is "inspired" or profound by any stretch of the imagination; however, I want to use this blog primarily to stretch my writing muscles, and they seem to be in a state of slight atrophy at the moment.

Normally I'd feel frustrated over the lack of creativity, but I'm cognizant of the fact that this time of silence is just a season. It too shall past. I don't think I've been drained of all creativity. As Ecclesiastes 3 says, there is a season for everything, and I think that applies to periods of writing as well. For now, I am patiently trusting that God will soon begin again to lay thoughts on my heart to share with my readers, and that this time of silence is not purposeless.

There is great peace and joy in realizing that everything God allows us to do--including not doing the things we may prefer to do--is for a reason and is part of His master plan.
