A few weeks ago, I said to God, "I feel like a big chunk of my brain is missing. The writer part of my brain." To which He replied, "Not your brain. Your heart." He was informing that I had lost heart in writing.
To lose heart means to become discouraged; to lose courage; to become timid. It does not mean that I lost faith in God, or anything like that. Rather, it means I lost confidence in myself and what I do.
Lately, I've had to pull away from life more than I normally do, away from distractions, and spend quiet time with God, seeking Him to help refresh my heart, before I lose courage and confidence in all areas of my life.
Today is the third of 5 days in a row where I'll find time to pull aside from the world, with no interruptions - days I know God has urged me to use to focus on getting closer to Him, once more. As yet, I have not been filled to overflowing with fresh confidence; I still find it difficult to write ~ and post. [I've written a lot lately, but discard about 99% of it.] As yet, I do not know when I will find heart in the talents God's given me, or that which He has called me to do for Him and His kingdom, but not for one minute do I doubt that God will strengthen and empower me once more.
Despite what mood and circumstance tells me, I know God will meet me where I am at. He will restore my heart. He will strengthen me again. All I have to do is be patient and wait... And as I wait, I put my hope and faith in no man, circumstance, dream, or thing, but in God and God alone, knowing that He wants what's best for me even more than I do.
