There use to be a time in my life where I could just write. I could sit and fill page after page with the most beautiful sequences of words. Blank pages like this one use to be my escape; a place to where I could disappear and just let go of what was going on in my heart.
Thousands of words I have used to paint pictures and to add colour to what most people would just see as a blank page.
Yet, I have no inspiration, and without inspiration, art has no meaning. I can string a million words together but without any inspiration they won’t mean anything. However when I use your smile as inspiration, I can string two million words together and each word will make perfect sense, because I will be using two million words to describe your smile.
The inspiration for this letter to you is my inability to write to you about anything. Yes, I am writing to you about nothing. Yet there is reason for this madness even though I am not sure what it is. I just know there is something inside of me that is shouting at me to write something to you. The problem is I cannot hear that voice as well as I use to.
You see, God has always been my inspiration and over the last few months I have let my relationship with Him slip. Now my letters paint a much less colourful image than they did before. I have exchanged inspiration for instant gratification; a mistake made by many a man and woman over thousands of years.
Just like spelling errors, our mistakes can be wiped away in an instant. Leaving us with a blank page, a safe haven with endless possibilities to where we can escape and have our hearts run wild. On this new page you are the inspiration behind every word written and God the inspiration for your every word spoken and action taken.
While I am sitting here, writing to you, my spirit is broken and my body tired. I can feel my eyes growing heavy but I can sense something starting to stir in my heart. While I can hide behind these words from you, I cannot do so with God.
He took a blank piece of paper and spoke life, He gave me my name and breathed His Spirit into my nothingness and I came alive. He knows my heart and He knows yours. I bet that if you were to write everything you knew about yourself on a page and He did the same, He would write five times more than you. Page after page He would use awesome words to paint the beautiful picture of you.
On this blank page is a picture of how God can take nothing and turn it into something. While I might lose my inspiration from time to time, my inspiration never loses me. It is because of His inspiration that I can feel a new passion for His Word being ignited in my heart.
Open your heart, may you be used for His inspiration. Just to make sure you have understood my inability to write to you about anything… You my friend, loved one, my enemy, you are the inspiration for this letter.
