Some days, I’m still struggling to find firm footing in a new home, in a new place, in a new season (empty nesting is equal parts joy and rest AND navigating the ache of loss).
But in a brave leap of faith, and itching to put my new writing desk to good use, I said “yes!” to a new assignment, drafting a few posts for a great website, vinetobranches.com .
Having written very little over the past year, the process feels rusty and clumsy, with fits and starts of finding the right creative groove. Praying again and again for words that speak life and encouragement to any who read them.
But… then I remember: the journey was never mine to begin with. The only words that have ever landed on the screen have come from His Word and faithful whispers from His heart to mine.
The only help I need is from the LORD alone. It is so sweet to see this very realization echoed in today’s breakfast psalm: 🌿
