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?
