As a particularly creative being, I thrive most when I’m inspired. I’m not sure whether that’s true of everyone – but it’s true for me. If I lack inspiration then I don’t function very well.
I love writing as much as art and photography. I think I’m getting better at all three at about the same pace. Today I wanted to write but was lacking inspiration. So, I prayed. I then realised that I haven’t read the Bible for several days. That lead me to check out Biblegateway‘s verse of the day, with the intention that that would form the basis of a blog post and fulfill my morning coffee with Abba – although I’m drinking a nice cup of tea today!
Today’s verse of the day is, ‘Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.‘ (Luke 12:6-7 NIV)
As I read it I chuckled to myself. Not only is it pertinent for my current situation, my pastor has been trying to convince me of this truth for almost as long as I’ve known him.
I feel as though I was meant to read that truth today. I think I’m ready to accept it as truth for myself – cognitively and affectively. The next step is for me to learn how to live as if it’s true. That seems to be a whole new process of change, recovery, and development.
