As I discover what spiritual formation means in my life, I am beginning to understand why it has become difficult to write. I never considered myself a writer until I began blogging. Once I began to blog, I noticed that my heart grew–that something was happening on a deeper level–that blogging was, in fact, a means of spiritual formation for me. Accompanying that realization, came that ever-present complacency that led to not writing. Really, it is the same thing that happens whenever we discover something that is valuable in our relationship with God: as we discover its importance, we find ways to avoid it.
Do you ever fall into the same rut?
