Getting Over What’s Blocking Your Writing

Updated: Dec 28, 2020

I thank God for the problems in my business. Why? The problems draw me closer to Him because I get to write about them and use the writing to overcome the problem. It’s quite a convenient relationship

Sometimes it’s a problem of a client or business friend that I’m trying to solve. I had an entrepreneur friend going through marriage problems, so I decided I was going to write a series of blogs for married entrepreneurs finally.

Occasionally, though, I find myself having a “creative block” when I can’t think of the way to help myself or the person through the problem. It’s frustrating because I set aside the time to write, I’m reading the Bible, I’m trying to get my mindset in the right place, but the solution isn’t coming together in a way that I know will impact the reader.

I sometimes have to close my Bible, put down my phone (I blog from my phone), and just come back to it the next day.

We Christian business bloggers at one point or another will face writers’ block – the condition of being unable to think of what to write or how to proceed with writing.

We face this because of either,

  1. God wants us to do some more investigating and isn’t revealing the solution, or

  2. We forgot that God is the source of the solution and we’re not coming to Him authentically (we’re trying to solve it from your head instead of the spirit leading)

This blockage of creative solutions could last a day or two, a week, or in some severe cases, months.

The only way we Christian business bloggers can overcome this roadblock is by remembering that God has limitless creativity and has given us the holy spirit to inspire us, renew us, and raise us out of the darkness and into the light.

The bible says:

My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer. (Psalms 45:1 NIV)
