I was having a conversation with my sister and she had a brilliant suggestion. Since I have been going through such a challenge with my writing and as that process is breaking me, I will use this as an opportunity to write a series of posts detailing the whole process.
The Lord is the One Who is breaking me. As He wants me to do this blog, I must be obedient. I cannot quit, although I want to throw up my hands and give up on writing. But I am not made that way. I will persevere and trust the Holy Spirit within me to do the work necessary to make me a successful writer.
So, to start this off, I am going to describe how I am feeling. I feel frustrated because, as a writer, I don’t like the flow of my writing to be constricted, as it is now. I am unused to such a hindrance.
I am having a particularly difficult time writing this morning. I have spent the past couple hours sitting in front of the computer, staring at the screen. The past week has been a lot easier for me. But today, for some reason that I do not understand, is different. I believe that I am going through a spiritual process. I am like a caterpillar in its cocoon, struggling to break free so that I will become a beautiful butterfly. The struggle is necessary. Without it, there is no butterfly. Knowing that strengthens my spirit and makes the challenges worth the process.
Blessed be the Name of the Lord.
