Some fresh thoughts from gracewriters.com…
Some Christian writers feel guilty that they can’t get on with their writing, because their minds are scrambled by pandemic stress. Many don’t want to use the word “fear” because they are afraid it sounds unspiritual or maybe even a sin.
But I am willing to tell you straight out: I have experienced fear outbursts a number of times in recent weeks, and stress has been grumbling away at a persistent background level.
It has sometimes disrupted my ability to think clearly and creatively and pour my love into my writing. My imagination is being used up by less helpful things.
The Bible and stress
We often seem to assume that, as Christians, we shouldn’t get stressed. We should be superheroes of the faith.
