Are you a maybe baby?

Last week I was stuck, really stuck. In writing a story, I ran into a wall of nothing. My creative flair had reached a dead end. I tried to add spice to a scene I was crafting, but …had nothing but blank thoughts!

So, I pushed myself away from my desk and hopped in the shower to get ready for my weekly prayer meeting at church.

A friend picked me up, and On the way, I thought, "Maybe this time away from writing, maybe God will give me the wisdom and creativity to get the scene written."

Like a summer thunder in Orlando, the thought clapped in my head and the notion struck me. I realized my error, my huge mistake and bizarre blunder. I leaned on the "maybe"" God would help me.

Why would I think that? Is the God of the universe, a God of "maybe?" And is a faithful Lord with power, compassion and mercy a God of "maybe?"

I pressed the delete key in my mind and promptly erased the "maybe" notion.

I'm not a maybe baby, but a for sure child of God. A daughter of the King who counts on certainty, assurance, confidence and security in Him.

Well, you guessed it. I came home and the portion I needed to make that scene shine with emotion and necessary conflict eased through my mind and onto the keyboard.

From now on, when facing a bit of a writer's block or when anxiety threatens to roil in me, I will trust In God asking myself the question what part of this promise don't I understand?

"Fear not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness."

Isaiah 41:10

I pray you too cling to the certainty and truth that He will help you through moments of annoying petty tiffs or agonizing painful trials.
