Inspiration Found

If you only knew
How many times
I've stared at this blank screen

Hoping the words would come
Wishing I could hear that voice
That  once guided me
And told me what to say

But for months now
I've heard nothing

Where are You, God?

The words on this page
may be mine
But to me, there has never been a doubt
That they flowed freely
From You

For months now
I've been lacking
Your heavenly inspiration

Where are You, God?

The sun rose
The dog barked
The bird chirped
The owl hooted
My child smiled

...and just like that
I remembered

You are everywhere.

Today I Pray...

...that I keep my eyes and ears
open to You.

...that I recognize Your presence
in all things -- however big or small

...that I let myself
be bathed in the warmth
of Your love

That I might never again
need to search for
the omnipresent One
who is my God

"No longer shall the sun be your light by day, Nor the brightness of the moon shine upon you at night;
The Lord shall be your light forever, your God shall be your glory." ~ Isaiah 60:19

What a wonderful, peaceful,and inspiring visit I have just had here. Your words spoke to my heart, and your God is my God. Thank you so much for this blessing in my day.

You sound as if you have been missing the FEELING of God's presence . . and I'm sorry for that, that you've had this sense for awhile . . but it sounds as if a feeling of His precious presence has returned for you . . I am SO glad, Lauren ..

YOu and I have both been posting far less often on our blogs . . I think we are both going through lots of changes .. today was the first time I've posted on MY blog, in about a month . I'm glad we are both hanging onto God . .

hugs to you
