Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake: Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake, a fire: Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire, a soft gentle voice. (1Kings 19:11-12)

When Words Don't Come


Husband working, toddler sleeping, daughter at gymnastics with her Nana watching her. Dough is rising for cinnamon rolls to be enjoyed after gymnastics, the house is quiet, and here I find a few minutes to type . . . but nothing comes.

I started this blog to get my thoughts to come out more on 'paper'. I knew it was a challenge for me as I like to keep things to myself. However, I wanted to challenge myself to learn to express my thoughts more. To write something down takes more time and effort, but it forces you to work things through. I heard of a book a while ago called, Write to Discover Yourself by Ruth Vaughn. I thought, 'this is what I want', but more . . . to discover yourself is one thing, but to discover who I am in Christ is so much better. The book is out of print and I have not got a copy yet to read, but I would like to eventually.

I have never been very good at 'journaling' so this blog was intended to help me express my thoughts and what I learn as I meditate on God's Word. I have heard that the key to writing is reading . . . so I am challenged to read even more. I have much to learn.

For now I will continue to 'practice' my writing by continuing with my gift list. God has blessed my so abundantly. More thanksgiving to come . . .

  1. Hi Rebekah,
    I am visiting from Ann's blog. Your list is just wonderful. I know that feeling of wanting to put words on paper and feeling as though nothing will come. I think the Gratitude List is a great place to start. I loved reading your post.
