Empty Inspiration

Waiting for inspiration

Seeking life’s fresh, new start

Searching nighttime’s galaxy

Empty stars fall apart

 

Hiding from inspiration

Fearing each day’s setback

Sleeping until afternoon

Day’s journey stays off track

 

Breathing with inspiration

Shirking destiny’s call

Walking away once again

Ambition slows to crawl

 

Dreaming of inspiration

Waking to sunrise fog

Giving up another day

Hollow thoughts fill backlog

 

Starting with new attitude

Taking desired station

Leaving forever, life of . . .

Empty inspiration

The good news is that the bad news can be turned into good news when you change your attitude.

From James 1:2-4:  “My brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of any kind, consider it nothing but joy, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance; and let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing.”

Attitude is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than what people do or say.  It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill.

From Philippians 4:8:  “Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
