As part of my committment to keep the spirit of My 52 Weeks of Worship Project alive this year, I decided to read from an “inspiring text” every morning. I started with verses from the Bible, but changed course a bit during Lent, when I was trying to figure out what to give up and what to add to my life. It seemed fitting to read a book that I have had for years, but had never finished reading:
The book is designed to take 40 days and 40 nights – so it was a perfect fit for Lent.
Then, I scoured my bookshelves for another book that I have had for years, but never read:
Many years ago, reading the books that make up Neale Donald Walsch’s, “Conversations with God,” were spiritually transformative for me. I figured I should read this one too, and I enjoyed it. I finished it this morning!
I now have to determine what the next book is in this series. I am thinking it may be time to tackle:
“A Course of Miracles,” has been on my shelf for far too long – mostly because it looks…intense. But I think it might be time. But before I start – I thought I would ask all of you for suggestions – maybe there is another book I should consider. I figure I will have to, at some point, re-introduce scriptural reading into my daily experience – probably at night, but I will continue with the “spiritual book” infusion in the morning.
What is your favorite inspiring book?
“The Dream Giver” by Bruce Wilkinson. (He is also the author or “The Prayer of Jabez.”)
Back Cover Copy:
Welcome to a little story about a very big idea. This compelling modern-day parable tells the story of Ordinary, who dares to leave the Land of Familiar to purse his Big Dream.
You, too, have been given a Big Dream. One that can change your life. Once that the Dream Giver wants you to achieve. Does your Big Dream seem hopelessly out of reach? Are you waiting for something or someone to make your dream happen?
Then you’re ready for The Dream Giver.
Amazing and motivating book. You’ll love it.
