Writer’s Block – Day 1

“I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.”
–Psalm 121

Ok so for the first time in months, I have writer’s block.  I have no idea what to write about.  So, I just picked a favorite psalm, copied and pasted it here, and I started typing.  Right now I am just typing what is coming out of my brain.  Hopefully, something good will come of this.

I believe sometimes events like these are the result of God telling you your brain is mush, and you need to clear it.  Go back to the word, read the Bible, and get closer to Him.  Eventually, I will realize what He is trying to get me to realize, and the words will flow again.

When I was thinking of something to write about, I started to think about the book of Psalms for some reason.  I Googled “favorite psalms”, looking for some inspiration.  I read several of them, and while all of them spoke to me in some way, psalm 121 stuck in me the most.  I am not sure why, but all I could think about was that this psalm is one I wish I had had in my head at certain times in my life.   There have been times in my life when things were not going well, and I was facing adversity, and could have used words like these to remind me that God was standing next to me, holding me up as I moved forward.

By the way, it is May 22nd and we are all still here, which means one of two things.  Either Harold Camping was wrong in his calculations – again – or we all missed the rapture.  Obviously, I believe the former not the latter.  The one thing that I really hope is that his followers have family and friends around them right now that can help them come to grips with the reality of what happened, or didn’t happen.

But what about this Harold guy?   Well, interestingly enough, his radio show apparently took in 18 million in donations this last year.  Now that is calculations were proven wrong, is he going to give the money back?  I doubt it.  Why did he need the money anyway, if the rapture was coming?  This part of this event angers me quite a bit.   Was it a scam?  I don’t know, but if I was one of them – not that I ever would – I would be pretty upset right now. I would be knocking on his door asking for a refund right about now.

Ok so that’s it for today.

Thanks for sticking with me while I work through this rut.

  1. This just fine. I’ve had days like this too. I loved the Psalm you picked. In fact it may be confirmation of some kind for me since He’s put in front of me twice outside of the Bible within a few days. Thanks
