Blogging from the Teacher Convention

I've been lacking in inspiration lately, I feel dry;dusty even.

But we have to fight for inspiration because it doesn't always fight for us.

I think so often we leave joy to chance, hoping it finds us. But while we're out experimenting, it's a bound captive waiting (needing) our ransoming.

So we fight for joy and we fight for passion because we have to.

How do we change the world? How do we come alive?

So true. I have found myself lacking joy at times. I tend to blame it on my circumstances or something someone else has done. As if the circumstance or the person has robbed me of my joy. I know that is not true. To be joyful is a choice. I believe if that were not so then God would not have told us to be joyful in all circumstances. 1 Thess. 5:16!
