It’s been a while since I’ve written a post. Every time I thought about writing one, my mind would go blank. Not just in a try to write and the words will flow kind of blank, but having no motivation to do so blank. Basically, I was going through a spiritual & mental war and guess who won???
I’ve come to a lot of realizations, understandings, and other insights over the last few weeks. One of the big ones involved thinking about…… nothing.
It is really hard to write when (in your mind) there is nothing to write about. You can call it writers’ block, lack of motivation, or whatever else, but this really got me thinking. The word “nothing” implies a lot. Its meanings include (1) having no prospect of progress; (2) of no value; or (3) not at all.
When you say you’re doing nothing or that you have nothing to bring to the table (or to write about), you’re basically saying you’re wasting away; that you’re taking up space. How horrible would it be to find out you let years of your life pass by unnoticed when you could have made an impact?
To say anything is nothing is like telling God that He made a mistake because it hasn’t impacted anyone. If you believe in Christ, then you know that this is not the case – that we all have a purpose.
Not many people will say “When I die, I want people to remember me for nothing”. No, most people want to leave a legacy of sports achievements, business, academics, or charity. Somehow we all want to leave something behind.
Nothing = Something
Out of this same nothingness comes everything. God created the heavens, the earth, people, and animals when nothing was here. He simply spoke it all into existence and it became. We were not created for nothing; we are here to create, be, and love. What nothingness could YOU make into something today?
Don’t lose hope,
