Confront the Empty {Day 26 :: CONFRONT}


I confront the page every day. I’ve faced human-sized boulders and scaled them. I’ve quit a job I love and dove off a cliff into unknown waters, with no promise of being caught.

When I surrendered myself to the writing life, I had no idea God would ask me to encounter so many issues in myself—over-achieving, unforgiveness, grief, loneliness, and pride (just to name a few).

The page doesn’t lie to the pen.

Today I face another choice—whether or not to continue to reveal myself here to God and the world. It feels like writing naked when you stop trying to prove you’ve got great things to say.

I confront the page day after day to remember I am empty before God, and that is where he does his best work.
