We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
1. Thessalonians 1:3  

Where does your inspiration come from? Be it life, career...writing. It all comes from somewhere.

Every morning when I get up I attempt (I say attempt as I am often prying my eyes open with a chisel while praying, reading my Bible and journaling. :-) my devotions and spend time with the Lord to start off my day. Always somewhere on that list of requests and praises is my request for inspiration. I seem to need it in bucket loads these days.

When I sat down to write this post last Friday only one word stuck in my head...Inspiration. I need to be inspired and where else to be so, then God's Word? I looked up the word and found the verse above.

Wow. I  need to read that again. Our FAITH, our ENDURANCE, our LOVE, our HOPE. Do those words just not make you want to get up and dance? What promise are packed into those words.

What inspiration.

Maybe you get your inspiration from people watching, your kids, your marriage, your job, radio talk shows, music, other books.

But NOTHING can counter the grace and peace of inspiration directly from the Throne of Grace. The Audience of One. It has certainly been an epiphany for me.


  1. The way that God moves through other people's lives, lifts them from their struggles, and molds them stronger and more what inspires my writing. :)

    Lovely post!

  2. I definitely have to petition the Lord for inspiration for all I do--whether it's teaching or writing or even working on the blog. And when I hit a dry spot and beg God for some help, an idea will hit me when I'm driving to school or in the shower or when I wake up at 3am. God keeps it interesting, doesn't He??!

  3. Sounds like an intriguing premise for a story. I like edgy, so I may have to add it to my 'to read' list.

  4. I would like to win and read Mother is a Maneater.
