But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have more than enough bread, but I perish here with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you.I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Treat me as one of your hired servants.”’ And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.
Luke 15:17-20 ESV
A week ago, I was ready to embrace this expedition. Taking 40 days to seek God’s rest and direction for the next season of life. Fifteen days ago, I gladly accepted the challenge to blog for 31 days on the topic: Nourishment for the Soul.
To nourish a soul is a privilege. My soul finds its nourishment in words, in the Word of God and in the Word become flesh—Jesus!
Today, I find my pen empty, dry. It is harder than I thought to whip up a feast of words every day. Today I feel like all I have to offer are leftovers, or even worse, maybe just crumbs.
I have to embrace the famine as well as the feast.
What are you struggling to embrace at this moment?
