Writer’s Block

I tried all weekend to come up with an idea for Music Monday, and nothing. I seem to have writer’s block. I had some ideas of things to write but nothing music related. I’ve been listening to my Christian playlist on my iPod all weekend, and still nothing.

Sunday morning I talked to someone about the challenge of posting something every day. I thought creating theme days would make it easier, and often it does, but not for today.

Perhaps it is because I have something on my mind that I don’t want to blog about; or that I know would not glorify God.

Then it came to me and I decided to post this video by MercyMe. The song is called 3:42 a.m. (Writer’s Block). It’s about Bart asking God to give him something to write.

3:41 am make that 3:42
Time just keeps rolling on while I’m here stuck like glue
So many things cross my mind but nothing stays awhile…so frustrating
I just wanna say something worth while..speak through me

Say say what you wanna say…and say it loudly
Say say what you wanna say… speak through me
If the idea’s mine it’s nothing but a waste of time
So won’t You say say what you wanna say

I love the line in this song, “If the idea’s mine it’s nothing but a waste of time.” And since God has given me no ideas for this Music Monday, this video is it for today.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

    • Rea, I particularly loved the comments on this one, like what a blessing this song was for Deb! God made something out of my nothing again! 🙂 Peace, Linda

  1. Love you, Linda! Just to let you know . . .loved this song. AND, Aub was having a hard time, getting upset, starting to hit herself then this song started up. It worked miracles on her and she started dancing in her seat. 🙂 God said what He needed to say through you and this song today! yay!
    God bless you as you listen for Him!

    • Deb, That is so awesome! This really made me smile and appreciate how great is our God. Once again, what I thought was a lame post was just what needed to be posted. 🙂 Now I’m going to have this song playing in my head all afternoon with a smile on my face. Peace, Linda

  2. Thanks, Linda 🙂

    Sometimes ‘nothing’ adds up to so much! 🙂 Thanks for sharing. I like that line too … “If the idea’s mine it’s nothing but a waste of time” – all about Him or nothing at all.
