Restore the sparkle to my eyes, or I will die.
I admit that I've lost a certain sparkle in my eye. I guess you could call it a bit of writer's block mixed in with I can't do this.
I'm sure you can relate in some way.
There are times when we aren't as sparkly as others:
*in our marriages
*with our kids
*with our jobs
*with our hobbies
*with our relationship with God.
There are times when things seem boring or mundane or you just do something because you are supposed/have always done it. It's ok to have those days-- but it's not ok to give up during those times. Take a break, take time for yourself, talk, pray about it before you quit or stop or get so badly beaten down that you don't see a way out.
God will put a sparkle back in your eye.
Yesterday, I couldn't imagine writing anything else ever again (did I mention the 'I can't do this' part?...) Today, I've written all of this AND have decided to write a short story for an opportunity to be read by my favorite author (Colleen Coble). And... Well I've been trying to work out the kinks in novel number 2 (while trying not to think about #1).
It's fun to go back and see how God answers prayers-- If you've lost your sparkle, pray about it. Life is dull without it.
God Bless You.
