Filling The Blank Page

Wow! Thank you for the overwhelming support and response to my new blog and website. You have encouraged me greatly, and I pray that I can in turn

encourage you. I will confess that I do feel the slightest bit of pressure now that I’ve said I’m going to write… regularly. And so I stare at this blank page. It stares back at me with an arrogant taunt, daring me to be interesting and relevant.

Blank pages are hard. So much white space. So much emptiness. So much expectation. It’s enough to make you crawl back in bed and pull the covers over your head. What is the blank page in your life? Maybe it is a new job, or a lost job. Maybe it is the end of a relationship. Maybe it is an empty house, or just the unknown future that looms out there like a gaping void, asking us to have all the answers. Fear of the unknown can cripple us, and keep us from writing that first word on the page, or painting that first brush stroke on the canvas. But as Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “we must do the things we think we cannot do.”

How will we fill our blank page today? One word at a time. One step at a time. One step in faith at a time. Moses stepped into the wideness of the Red Sea in faith… and the waters parted. Peter stepped out of the boat, and the waters did online casino canada not part. The lame man picked up his mat and he walked, one step at a time. If we step in faith, if we put one word down in faith, if we make one motion forward in faith, then our blank page becomes a prospect instead of pressure.

So the question is not how will I fill this page, but how will God? Jesus said, I have come that you might have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10) He is the one who fills everything in every way ( Ephesians 1:23). God, whose glory fills the whole earth promises to take what is empty and make it full. Our blank page is not a public proclamation of failure, pain, or lost opportunities, but a blank slate on which God writes hope, purpose and new life. It is our new leaf. And each day we get to turn it over.

So now, as I casino online stare at the page,

and wade in word by word, I do so with expectation and wonder. Wonder at the prospect of what God will do, and where He will take me today. I am looking forward to my blank pages, for the Author of salvation has something to

So I close with a prayer for you and for me, that

we “may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:19) Amen.
