I've been in a seemingly endless creative slump since coming back home, and it has been tough. It also doesn't help that my laptop AND blog hosting service are having issues, and I haven't been able to finish editing pictures or working on posts from our trip! But I'm learning to rest in it, and maybe even find peace in it, instead of simply being discouraged by it. There's always a bigger purpose behind slumps and growing pains and even petty things like computer troubles. Lately the Lord has been placing this verse from Isaiah on my heart, reminding me of the great joy found in Him, and it has been such a beautiful image throughout some days when joy starts to feel a *little* bit out of reach. Maybe it will mean something to you, too? // "You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills will burst into song, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands."
