I have the hardest time trying to write for my blog. Even after asking God what
to write about, I find myself staring out the window not able to find words to
put to paper.
couple of years ago I was attending an English class in college. We read poems and short stories and then we
wrote critical essay=s
on them. Near the end of the semester one of our assignments was to write a
poem. The only requirements he gave to us was that it could not rhyme and could
only be a page long (preferably shorter).
I remember sitting and staring out the window into the dark stormy night
not an ounce of inspiration within me to write even one line. But eventually words
began to flow into my brain:
want to do any of those things.
just occurred to me. Perhaps I’m not reading my Bible enough? After all, the
Bible is inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16); therefore, my words should be
inspired by Him as well. Inspiration can come from anything (nature, driving
around in the car, music, other blogs, etc…) but I would think keeping my
mind on God, reading and studying His Word and talking to Him through prayer
and writing down what He says to me should be the greatest inspiration of all.

Lord, speak to us. Speak through us. Help us to sit and listen to You and hear
Your voice so that we can write Your words and then others will be inspired by
