When The Well Runs Dry…
That moment has come…
For months now thoughts have flowed from my mind. I have felt like I’ve been in a state of FLOW for a long time.
Then yesterday, I uttered these words to a friend of mine, “My well has run dry.”
With respect to sermon writing my friend asked me if I’ve been reading my Bible frequently. It’s often the case that a lack of reading can cause that. But I have been reading regularly.
I just finished the book of Ezekiel.
I’ve read Colossians numerous times preparing for a meeting.
I’ve been doing my chronological Bilbe reading daily (just wrapped up Isaiah).
I’m also reading a psalm daily.
My friend then asked if I’ve been reading other books. I have, but these books have been more to prepare for classes.
Thoughts…ideas…come back to me…where are you?
I went fishing last week at the beach. I was hoping I would get some juices flowing with respect to thoughts there. Nope!
I actually do have some sermons prepared, but they are for upcoming meetings later in the year. I have sermon sketches of different ideas that I have stock piled, but none seem to be sticking.
So what do you do when the well runs dry? I will keep reading. I will keep exercising. Typically, I get a lot of clarity when I exercise. I will continue to get sleep.
Eventually, the well will be full again!
Thoughts…ideas…come back to me write now please.
