If you follow my blog, you might have noticed I haven’t written in a while. Or maybe you haven’t noticed. But, I haven’t. Life has been crazy. My schedule has changed. I have a new job. All things that distract me and take my time.
And there’s another thing. Sometimes I feel like I can’t possibly have anything more to say. Don’t get me wrong – I think of ideas, but then think, “I’ve already said that.” Maybe in a different way, but still.
This morning, as I was throwing French fries and burgers at hungry teens, I was thinking about a couple of ideas that had popped up in the last couple of days. I was praying, asking God what He might have me write, explaining that these lessons had all been covered.
A verse popped in my head. Or part of a verse, I should say.
“There is nothing new under the sun.”
The entire verse is, “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9 (NIV)
Nothing new. Nothing.
The same sin, struggles, strife. That seems a little depressing, doesn’t it?
The good news is that God isn’t new either. He’s the same, yesterday, today and forever. More importantly, His love for us hasn’t changed.
So. I may not find new lessons to teach. But I have a feeling God will give me new stories to tell. I hope you’ll continue to join me on the journey!
Be blessed and tell someone you love them.
