Everyday we face a blank page. It’s not that our life starts from scratch every morning – we build on yesterday – but each new day calls us to write something new in the story of our life.

As every writer knows, the blank page is both scary and exciting.

On the one hand, so much has been written yet a blinking cursor demands for more still. Do we have what it takes? Can we write again?

At the same time, it’s thrilling to consider what new discoveries will be made. Where will this journey take me? What doors will it open and what interesting people will it bring?

This is the story of our life.

Everyday we face a blank page demanding to be written.

Sometimes this thought is overwhelming, while at other times it brings great expectations. The writing will take place either way.

Learning to accept this allows us to live with courageous freedom.

While every story has its limitations – we can’t do everything – there is tremendous freedom in how we write each day.

Maybe today is the day we start that project, make that phone call, submit the resume, or simply allow our souls to rest.

Each day we have the freedom to take another step toward becoming the man we want to be – we get to write it into our story.

While naturally we have to build on yesterday, we don’t have to write the same thing again and again. Simply copying and pasting from yesterday results in a shallow and often depressing story.

A blank page means we get to write something new everyday.

Embrace the fear and excitement of the blank page.  And write something today that moves you closer to the man God has called you to be.
