Inspire= God breathed
I want God to breathe His Spirit into me, and for His breath to overflow into my writing, into my life. Isn't that what most of us long for? But it can't be forced. I've tried.
I've written. I've erased. I've typed. I've deleted. I've started again. Seeking the right words. Seeking Him. I would choose to leave the pages blank over filling them with words that are not of Him. But when I struggle to find my voice, I will press on in the searching, because in writing, as in life, God often meets us when we seem to be struggling the most. As I seek Him I'm clinging to my favorite advice:
"If you want to improve your writing, read good books."
If you want to write good words, you must read good words. So if you want to write inspired words? You got it... God's Inspired Word. I'm feeling the need to slip away for some inspiration.
