When entering the "blank zone," I either stare at the computer screen hoping words miraculously appear or close my eyes, take a deep breath and pray. You'd think the latter would be automatic, but nooooo, not for me. I sometimes get a crazy notion I'm in control, and end up wasting a considerable amount of time frustrated with a strong desire to throw the laptop out the window ... and I know God is watching, shaking His head and smiling.
When faced with a blank page, be it while writing or waking to a new day, we need to look upwards and say, "Okay, God, it's all yours." We will, at times, succumb to self-will; we're human. Be comforted knowing all He wants us to do is try ... He expects progress not perfection.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, on your own intelligence do not rely;
In all your ways be mindful of him, and he will make straight your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NABRE)
