When The Well Runs Dry…

That moment has come…

For months now thoughts have flowed from my mind. I have felt like I’ve been in a state of FLOW for a long time.

Then yesterday, I uttered these words to a friend of mine, “My well has run dry.”

When it comes to writing sermons, blogs, and workbook material, it all seems to flow out naturally. But now I feel like my well has run dry. 

With respect to sermon writing my friend asked me if I’ve been reading my Bible frequently. It’s often the case that a lack of reading can cause that. But I have been reading regularly. 

I just finished the book of Ezekiel. 

I’ve read Colossians numerous times preparing for a meeting.

I’ve been doing my chronological Bilbe reading daily (just wrapped up Isaiah). 

I’m also reading a psalm daily. 

My friend then asked if I’ve been reading other books. I have, but these books have been more to prepare for classes. 

Thoughts…ideas…come back to me…where are you?

I went fishing last week at the beach. I was hoping I would get some juices flowing with respect to thoughts there. Nope! 

I actually do have some sermons prepared, but they are for upcoming meetings later in the year. I have sermon sketches of different ideas that I have stock piled, but none seem to be sticking. 

So what do you do when the well runs dry? I will keep reading. I will keep exercising. Typically, I get a lot of clarity when I exercise. I will continue to get sleep. 

Eventually, the well will be full again! 

Thoughts…ideas…come back to me write now please. 


Life is all about attitude! Everyday we get to choose the mindset we will have. I CAN DO...SO CAN YOU. Let's go.
