Need Inspiration?

Anyone in need of some fresh inspiration? Some new strength to continue on your life’s journey? It’s as close as turning your face — and your heart — to the heavens, to the Creator of our beautiful world, to the One who longs to be a Father to us all.

Over three years ago now, about a month into my blogging life, I shared “Autumn Inspiration” with you. I thought it might be a good time to share it again. May it bless you, refresh you, and remind you where to turn for all the inspiration you’ll ever need…

Autumn Inspiration

A walk through the woods
On a clear autumn day
Renews my spirit
As I walk and pray.

The countryside is brightened
By the sun’s gentle rays,
And the leaves are at their autumn best
For a few more glorious days.

I drink in the beauty surrounding me
And thank our Father in heaven above
For the endless miracles in nature
He’s created with power and love.

The God of this magnificent world
Is surely able to meet my needs,
As even now I head back home
Refreshed and walking where He leads.

“O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” Psalm 8:1 NIV

  1. We’ve not had a very colorful fall as of yet… I can’t wait to drink it in; the weather remains warm, and I’m ready for sweatshirts and blankets! Until then, I enjoy the colors of Autumn displayed around me in stores and in pictures. Such warmth wraps around me like a blanket from God.

    Beautiful poem, Cheryl. Have a beautiful week in Jesus.


  2. Just beautiful, Cheryl. I LOVE the photo and I ADORE autumn. Unfortunately, I live in Florida…land of zero autumn. Thanks for blessing me with a small taste of it today anyway. :)
