Pray through it

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” Romans 12:12

I have been writing diligently for about 45 weeks straight. Ideas pop into my head about what I believe the Lord would want me to write about. I even have a few weeks buffer so that if I don’t write one week, I still have something to publish. But I always had something to write. Well, it finally happened…writer’s block.
