Finding time to write?

April 13th, 2010

Where do I find the time to write?

I’ll tell you–I don’t know!

Really, I could analyze it and try to come up with practical answers, and there are some, but the real reason comes down to this~

God doesn’t ever give a task without also giving the means to accomplish the task!

What a liberating truth.  We can see what means He provides and let Him build our desires and lives around those, and let the rest go.  He hasn’t provided space for sewing quilts.  Anybody want some quilt squares?

We can also live with the confidence that He will never leave us to our own resources.  If our van dies when we are hundreds of miles from home, like it did last year, He will show us what He wants us to do next, like He did last year.

So if Joe changes his mind and thinks I should stop blogging…

Or if my time for writing dries up…

Or if my ongoing list of ideas for posts is ever completed, with no more forthcoming…

Or if God makes it obvious in any other way…

I will stop writing here.  But until then, we’re taking all the green lights to mean “go.”

Except for the rest of this week!  We are planning to leave for our family vacation this evening, and to get back home Saturday evening, Deo volente!  And we will absolutely not be taking the laptop with us.

Share it!
