It’s Day 21 of the Write 31 Days challenge! My series is titled Wake up from Zombie-Like Faith—because it’s October and because some seasons of life send us staggering about in a fog. (ammirite?) And if you’ve been following along, you may have noticed a glitch. Day 20 never happened. After a full day of work I moved right into Friday night plans and didn’t even think about crafting an entry—until I woke up this morning. Let’s blame that on zombie brain, shall we?
In the series, I’m writing about dulled senses that are characteristic of zombie-like faith. First was sight, then hearing, now it’s taste, which I have a few more things to say about, but first, I saw something fun trending on Twitter and wanted to give it my own creative spin. The hashtag #WhatZombiesAreThinking was all abuzz this week. People were posting photos of zombies with clever captions attached, like these:

So what would spiritual zombies be thinking? I thought I’d start my own list, although these are much more serious than the Twitter entries!
- Why do I feel so disconnected from God?
- Why do I feel so sluggish and worn out?
- Will my eyes ever see God’s works again?
- Why can’t I seem to hear God’s voice?
- How can I boost my appetite for spiritual things?
- Will I ever feel spiritually alive inside again?
- How can I get my brain set on things above instead of earthly things?
Well, that’s a start to #WhatSpiritualZombiesAreThinking. I doubt it will trend on Twitter. But it’s helpful to think about the questions that roll about in our hearts and souls. What questions would you add?
