King James puts it this way:
James 1:22 (KJV) 22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. source
Just a bit ago hubby asked what’s for lunch. I said I’ll have to think about it.
James 1:22 KWT paraphrasing: Reading, looking, collecting a bi-jillion recipes and then pulling a frozen pizza from the freezer to cook for lunch. That’s a hearer but not a doer.
Writers fear blank screens. They say such cruel things to the one sitting before them.
I’ve been known to type gibberish on mine to drown the noise. . . like now.
I took a nap today. It felt good at the time but now . . . Well, it’s nearly 11:00 pm and here I sit!
With a blank screen.
So, shall we pray?
Father GOD, when we draw a blank, help us draw on YOUR Strength, YOUR love and guidance that You are so willing to give us. Thank You that You are never blank. You always know what we need and You are always ready to give as we come and ask. Thank You. So for any dear soul that reads my blank screen or is experiencing one of their own, thank You for encouraging us and thank You for giving us a new and/or renewed vision. Thank You for the courage and the strength to press on through blank screens, or emptiness of every kind that may be looming. Thank You that YOU never leave us or forsake for JESUS’s sake.
1 Peter 5:7 casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully]. source
