A Blue Pen

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. [Philippians 4:19]

I’m a little worried about myself this morning. As I prepared to write in my journal just finding my pencil became a major project. I looked in the bottom of the bag where I keep my journaling “supplies” and while there I came across an eraser. Pretty sure that I would need it, I went ahead and took it out of the bag. I also removed my journal – I knew I would need that; and then I laid the bag to the side.

As I opened my journal and started to write, I realized there was a problem – the only instrument in my hand was a yellow eraser! This meant that another expedition through the bag was in my future. Eventually I found the pencil but admit there were flashes of doubt. For a moment, I thought this was going to be a blue pen kind of morning (a blue pen is my optional writing tool. Although not my favorite thing to write with, I have found that it does work better than a yellow eraser).

Life. sometimes we find what we need before we need it. Sometimes we have to ingnore what’s at hand and keep going until we find what we’re looking for. And sometimes, we have to write with a blue pen.
