Barren Wasteland

I have not posted much of anything for several days. The truth of the matter is, my mind is parched. I have nothing to say, nothing to write about. My stomach is turning because of all the political headlines and "talking heads" and debates (this is only going to increase in the coming months). This time of year tends to be a bit of a downer. Dreary and docile after the heightened rush of the holidays.

I am busy as normal in ministry. Although there is a bit of a let down in that area as well following Christmas. I am getting ready to dive into a new sermon series (1 Peter) this week. Much preparation required there.

If you are a frequent visitor, please continue to stop by. I promise to post something of value and inspiration as soon as I find it. For now I leave you with a verse that describes this sort of thing from a spiritual perspective. There are times when these words are my words. Have you ever felt the same?

"O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water." Ps. 63:1

Jon,

I certainly understand and know how you feel, as I am often there myself.

I will pray for God to renew your strength and to grant you patience and hope as you wait upon him.

And when you get back to posting, I'll be one of the first in line to read.

Lord bless you, brother.

Thad

I was looking through older posts and came across this one Jon. It is neat that you used Ps. 63. It has been my life passage for years. I understand your feelings mate. I walk with you down the same path.
