Jim, I hope your departure is a very temporary one. We've all had the desert experience and often all we need is just a little rest. Others have found they handle it better to keep writing and little by little the discouragement leaves.
I'll be praying for you that God will encourage your heart.
"O Jesus, Jesus, dearest Lord, forgive me if I say
For very love, thy sacred name, a thousand times a day.
O Jesus, Lord, with me abide; I rest in Thee whate'er betide.
Thy gracious smile is my reward. I love, I love Thee, Lord.
