10 Each heart knows its own bitterness, and no one else can share its joy
Oh my goodness, happened again! I was going merrily along and bam that wall popped up! I was once again blocked, stymied, according to blogger Peaceful Knitter, my knitting mojo had flown the coop/gone on vacation, was nowhere to be found. No matter how many exciting new patterns I read on All Free Knitting or added to my Ravelry que nothing was motivating, encouraging or jolting me back me into picking up those needles and relaxing into knitting nirvana.
I picked up a book and started reading, something I used to do as relentlessly as I had been knitting. It seemed that my old reading love had been replaced by knitting my new, productive, time-consuming hobby. Picking up a book reminded me how much I always enjoyed reading and how it transports me to new exciting places, introduces me to new friends and fuels that round the corner, beneath the shelf spot of my mind where the mojo might have gone to seek quiet restful peace.
More often than not we fill our lives with so many new and exciting things that the tried and true are often relegated to spots of less importance. This also happens with our Cristian walk, the fire that burned brightly when we first learn the wonderful truths can over time die down or almost distinguished by busyness or overwork. It is important to build our continued joy and happiness in God. Proper alignment with reading God’s word and working to do for others provides moments of bliss. Deciding to knit something for someone else, sped my mojo’s return from vacation. Glory to God for the daily lessons and moments of sheer joy!
Making His praise glorious!
