Here’s What’s Inspiring Me…
Inspiration From God’s Word
Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

Inspire Me Monday #83 – Week Of August 5, 2013
I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
