What’s Inspiring You This Week?
Here’s What’s Inspiring Me…

Inspiration From God’s Word

Holy Bible

I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonders.
Psalm 9:1

When Worship Hurts – Donna Schultz

Like Donna, I often reflect on worship.
Like Donna, I have discovered that:

Praise does not always flow.
Sometimes it’s a choice.
Sometimes it’s a battlefield.

In her post, Donna shares her favorite worship song.
Heart Of Worship by Matt Redman is one of mine.

Heart Of Worship – Matt Redman

Book Of The Week – Tales Of The Defended Ones

Tales of the Defended Ones

A must read book – once you start, you will not want to put it down!

Sit Down And Write – May 1 thru 14, 2013

Sit Down And Write Quote

Whether you’re a novelist, a blogger, or a book reviewer –
If you write, this event is for you!
I’ll be joining and I hope you’ll be too!

Inspire Me Monday #69 – Week Of April 29, 2013

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer
