Inspiration

Inspi­ra­tion is one of those elu­sive things that can’t be man­u­fac­tured. I have been in a bit of a writ­ing slump late­ly and no mat­ter how hard I searched for inspi­ra­tion I have come up lack­ing. Per­haps my life is so filled with activ­i­ty and busy­ness that I have not tak­en the time to just lis­ten to the wind blow in the trees and receive inspi­ra­tion from the true source.  The source of all life is Jesus as well as all inspi­ra­tion.

There have been times in my life when I  found inspi­ra­tion in the busy. A light­ning bolt of inspired ideas falling on me mirac­u­lous­ly from above in the mid­st of my chaos.  Oth­er times have been in silent soli­tude when the light of cre­ativ­i­ty turned on and my words and actions were inspired. Just as God moves in dif­fer­ent ways at dif­fer­ent times He sends inspi­ra­tion in dif­fer­ent ways at dif­fer­ent times.

It varies from per­son to per­son as well as moment by moment.  Life is full of unex­pect­ed twists and turns so too inspi­ra­tion takes a very unpre­dictable path through our lives.

While I strug­gle with inspi­ra­tion or the lack there­of… I’d love to hear from you, my read­ers. How do you find inspi­ra­tion? What is your secret when you are stuck and need that bolt of cre­ative ener­gy?

In the mean­time… I will be walk­ing around my pond, pray­ing fer­vent­ly, watch­ing my chick­ens, being a taxi for my kids and alto­geth­er embrac­ing the busy­ness of my life while I wait for inspi­ra­tion to strike and the keys of my key­board will come to life once again!
