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?
