Here’s What’s Inspiring Me…

Inspiration From God’s Word – New Beginnings

Genesis Week - Psalm 51

Art & Devotional: Renee Smith – My Genesis

God, make a fresh start in me.
Shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life.
Don’t throw me out with the trash, or fail to breathe holiness in me.
Bring me back from gray exile,
Put a fresh wind in my sails!

Psalm 51:10-12, The Message

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
