Sometimes writing is hard. And I don’t just mean carving out the time, or when my “s” key sticks as I try to capitalize it.

The act of committing my thoughts to paper is a big chore. What if I’m misunderstood? What if someone reads my heart and disagrees, and doesn’t care to tell me as much.

Even worse what if I put my thoughts out there for the world and all I receive back is silence?


Lord, set up a guard for my mouth;
keep watch at the door of my lips.

Psalm 141:3

As I prepare a Bible study lesson, and before I present it, I pray that God would filter my words so that everything I say would bring honor and glory to Him.

I wish this meant teaching came easy for me. I rarely make the smooth transition into the next point, and often I get side tracked on material not covered in the lesson.

Hard as it may be for me to accept, being misunderstood isn’t the end of the world. I can even be wrong. {Breathing deeply as that settles}

We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose.

Romans 8:28

Struggling assemble my thoughts, I find assurance knowing Elohim isn’t limited to my best for His work. Glory often comes greatest for Him during these times of weakness.
