Inspiration from Scripture

for post on inspiration from scriptureInspiration from Scripture: Father Michael Najim uses an example from his life on how music inspired him, in order to apply the example as a spiritual lesson.  He explains how we are often going through the day with negative thoughts, having problems or experiencing difficulties, which can sometimes hold us back and weigh us down.  We need to understand what kinds of things we are putting into our heads that help us throughout the day.  Father Najim cites Holy Scripture as packed with meaning for our lives.


Editor's Note: Thanks to Father Michael Najim for sharing this video on with us from his blog site   2017 Addendum: Regrettably, Father Najim's blog site was hacked and his writings (but not this video) can now be found at his new site: Fr. Michael Najim's Blog by clicking here.

    This is such a great post Father. Scripture has to be our daily nourishment to remain in Gods love. The inspiration we get from scripture is the Holy Spirit moving our souls. Hearts, minds and bodies towards Gods divine plan his holy will. Thank you for sharing. Prayers and blessings.

    Fr. Najim…another thank you as your words were a confirmation to some advice my spiritual director gave me…to stop accusing myself of not living up to a certain “standard” that I (not The Lord) set for myself. He reminded me that the devil is the accuser and seeks to weaken my resolve to pursue sanctity. For me? Your words were inspired! Blessings on you.

  • Thank you, Father. A worrier like this old gal, also needs a reassuring Bible Verse. My chosen one is “Do not let your hearts be troubled; you have Faith in God; have Faith also in Me”. Jn.14:1
