Sometimes its hard waiting for inspiration. Not just for this blog, but in general just waiting for something…to come. I used to have a band and wrote songs. Some came easier than others. It always seemed the ones that just kind of showed up were better, and the ones that were forced were not as good. Almost always though the better songs usually resulted from taking a step back and just letting inspiration show up. The key to that, however, was being in a good place to notice when it did.
“Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable — if there is any moral excellence and if there is any praise — dwell on these things. Do what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you.”
Letting things show up and inspire me, brought me to the above scripture. I had written it down weeks ago and stumbled upon it again. And this evening as I sat down to write and reread the scripture it hit me. When I dwell on what is honorable, just, pure, lovely and commendable, that is when inspiration shows up. When God’s peace is with me.
