Honestly, today I feel uninspired. As I type this, though, my thoughts are, “How can you be uninspired living in all that God has created for you?” But the sad and honest truth is that I’m uninspired. Every day it’s kind of the same. I wake up, go for a run or not, go to work, come home and write and/or watch TV. I don’t get out some days. Part of this is because I’m out in the public sector of work, and most nights I just really want the silence. Another part of it is is that it’s stinking hot. But I think the biggest part of it is that I’ve let myself become accustomed to God’s creation.
By accustomed I mean, honestly, I’m bored, so I don’t even try to get out there. But then there are the days when I’m reminded just how awesome He and His creation are.
I walked out the door for a run last week and was welcomed by this. It was beautiful. And then this weekend I got to meet a new niece.
How can I be bored with all this beauty? How can I become so accustomed to creation all around me that I never even really see it or go out and experience it?
So today I’m a little tired. I’m a little uninspired. But I’m not going to take it for granted any longer. I’m going to stay aware. When I see creation, I see God. And when I see God, I hope that I never feel uninspired. I hope that I always stand in awe of His handiwork, whether it’s in nature, in people or in me. He’s working. I may never be uninspired again.
What about you? Do you ever feel uninspired?
