I’ve Got Nothing


For a long time I’ve wanted to participate in Five Minute Fridays with Lisa-Jo Baker. This week’s  job is to write an unedited blog about the word NOTHING for 5 minutes, and then stop. And, I finally did it 🙂 Check out others that have too!

  Five Minute Friday

I’ve got nothing to say. Really.


I started this blog because I was convinced I was supposed to be writing. But many, many days – I really have nothing “worthy” of sharing.

Sure in the shower, I write novel-length, inspiring “blogs” that are not only meant for my ears but can touch the soul of the hurting readers soon to discover my post. But by the time I get to my computer nothing comes out. The message has been lost, the editing has overtaken my spirit and those 2 adorable little kids now need 10 things from me right now.


So my blog has been quiet lately. And when it does have a post, it’s been the fun -yet not so needed- things. I love sharing my recipes and posting fun videos and book recommendations but what happened to that message from God that’ll change the world? It got lost and I don’t know why.


Am I supposed to be an inspirational blogger or a food blogger or an entertainment blogger? I have no idea. All I know is that God has told me to write and I do my best to do that.

But what do you do when nothing comes out?


Well, for me, I’ve just been trying to give it to God. I know He gave me my spirit, and the words in my head, and a husband who believes in me. So I might not really know what I’m doing over here in this space – but I guess it isn’t NOTHING.

  1. That was me four years ago, and it really still is. I’ve been blogging for four years and I have neither a book deal nor do I support my family with my earnings. So often I felt like I had nothing to say that hadn’t been said better a dozen other ways. But finally I just decided to keep saying what was on my heart anyway. Blog anyway. You never know who’ll you’ll encourage even if it’s just a few people.

    • Thanks for the encouragement 🙂 Sometimes it’s easy to feel lost in the blogging world and like your words don’t matter when “better” people are doing it “better” 🙂

  2. Love your honesty and real-ness. So glad you did FMF- fun!

  3. Most of the time, our deepest desires are the desires God places in our heart. We may not know what to do or where to go with them, but making an effort (writing a blog), is a start. We need to be willing to be used. God opens doors when you are willing. Keep it up.
