Stumbling Blocks

by Lili Richey Willard

'For You delivered me from death, even my feet from stumbling, to walk before God in the light of life.' Psalm 56:13 (Holman CSB)

I've been experiencing something that happens every once in awhile....writer's block. I hate it! I feel like I'm choking, like the words that I have in my mind and heart simply can't make it to the outside of me. If they did, I wouldn't know what to do with them. But during those times, I also see how I grow closer to God. I talk to Him more, I pray more, I read His Word more. I also often, nearing the end of the time, find that I know why He has allowed this to happen to me. It is my unbelief. I think we all have that, in some form. 'He won't do that for me', or 'I don't deserve it', or 'I don't have any talent that God can use'.

Rejection is high on my list. I suffer from it continually. I know what God says about it, and about me, but still, it is my thorn. But I do see how He uses it to challenge and motivate me. He tells me I am to believe what He says, not my enemies, not those around me. So, I am His, and I know it, and I know He can use me in different ways.

So, today, I am seeing my deliverance. What He promised, He will do. I pick up my pen (computer keys!) once more, and move forward. I pray for it to be Him, not me, in all I do. You can do this too. You have a stumbling merely need to admit it, turn to God, and then move forward when He tells you to GO. He will do it. And so will you!
