Just when I’m feeling sad and questioning what I’m doing with my life and even if all my work is worthwhile, I open the Bible and God speaks to me.
“Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy?” Isaiah 55:2
The Bible further goes on and says, “Seek the Lord while he may be found” verse 6 and those who “have no money, come” verse 1.
This comforts me as I know my writing satisfies me (and God) even though right now it satisfies no one else. It’s encouraging to know in these tough times that there is hope and a future as I’m bogged down in the mire of the present.
“Your ways are not my ways,” verse 8. This is true but sometimes I wish they were my ways. His ways tend to be too hard.
