This past weekend, my husband and I visited my brother and his wife in Pennsylvania. A few years ago, they purchased an old farm and have remodeled it and turned it into a beautiful, quiet retreat. As we sat just under the large apple and pear trees, I was reminded of the refreshing that comes from sitting in God’s creation.
Our Lord made the earth for us to enjoy. How many of us truly take the time to enjoy it?
I find that nature provides one of the greatest inspirations for my writing. Interestingly, when I sit along a stream or the ocean, I am inspired to write poetry or fiction, not non-fiction.
What about you? Does nature inspire you to write? If so, how? And what type of writing does God’s creation move you to do?
The next time you’re experiencing a challenge with being inspired. go outdoors to a quiet place. There you will find the source of all inspiration, our good and gracious God.
