I haven’t blogged much recently, and I regret that.
I think I know what Saul must have felt like when the Spirit departed from him, and I can understand why David begged God not to take Him away.
I hope mine is just the kind of dry spell that Jerusalem had during its time of Ichabod; when the ark had been stolen away and the glory had departed. I hope inspiration will soon return, and when it does I will not take many steps before I offer a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving.
In the meantime – broaden your horizons. Read some blogs and books and passages of scripture that you have never read before. Read old favorites in a new way, with a fresh perspective. Listen for God.
If He seems silent, endure Ichabod.
Maybe He has some threshing and refining to do in your life, too.

It was just a week ago that I was lamenting having the blahs big time. So I understand.>>We’ve missed you, but what you’ve written has been very good, Keith. Don’t despair. It happens to all of us at one time or another.>>I was sitting here this very morning thinking I had total writer’s block and then a new mini-contest idea made it’s way into my psyche so that’s what I’ve now blogged on at Finding Direction. You won a category in the last Finding Direction photo contest, so drop by and enter this one! You’ll have fun and maybe get some creative ideas, friend.>>Cheers & Blessings to you, Keith! Dee
I was about to put an APB out on you brother! Welcome back…….and we missed you greatly!>>DU
Dear Keith,>>I hate the dry spells. Those times when it feels I couldn’t find God even if He was sitting beside me at a table. I’m sorry you seem to be in one of those places. I know how it goes. I’ve kind of been there too lately. >>Thanks for the encouragement to get into the Word again in new ways.>>Lara
