Faith gets me through times of no writing better than writing could ever get me through times of no faith. – R. Crumb
When all else fails; when you seem abandoned; we always can turn to faith. It seems whether it is writing, artistic endeavors, athletic events, or more importantly everyday life we hit a wall. The wall stares us in the face and we cannot go over it or around it. Our energy empties into a silence that is beyond words.
It is during these times we need to trust (have faith) in those deep plunges into quiet and stillness. They end up being fruitful in the long run if we avoid panic. It is time to allow these times to force us back into a discussion with God. Not that answers will be forthcoming, but we learn that God’s presence is there for us and understands. When we hit that wall in life God is saying, “be quiet, be still, relax, and let’s talk.”
Lent is the ultimate time to engage our senses on our faith. Have faith that it will be fruitful in the long run.
