Inspiration ~ teacher, counselor or leader
I can recall many names of people in History that inspires me, people from my past and people of my present. One life can make such a difference on earth and forever in our hearts. The one person who inspires me is seen when I look into the mirror. A life created by God for purpose. My inspiration comes from the Bible and the truth it holds inside.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
YOU INSPIRE ME ~ GOD
To become a stronger and better person. It becomes time that I surrender my will, to your will.
Each day is a new beginning of life. We carry things inside our minds and hearts from yesterdays. Sometimes we need to put down some thoughts and grab onto new ones. Open the word of God and pick a scripture of hope for the day. Each of us face different things today. Some will have a most amazing day and others will struggle in their now of life. God is a source of strength and encouragement to each of us.
I remember the time when I did not feel the power of God in my life. I was bitter and not happy about loosing things I thought we should have kept. Twenty years plus later, I find myself happy we lost somethings of the past because we have moved into a new place with wisdom, joy and amazing connections made by God. In my Thirties, I was angry over loosing our house, car, my brother died and our dog ran away. Our church family wasn't a family at all and I quit church for almost one year. I found out that it wasn't the church, but a few people who spoke words that hurt so bad. I blamed everyone but myself.
It wasn't God that created the circumstances I was in, but it was I. My eyes only saw the hurt and God wanted me to see him at work behind the scenes of it all. Our financial state of life wasn't handle right, we got counsel from wrong people and we ended up a mess. God took those days and had us travel into a new city, new friends and new beginnings. It certainly wasn't easy and I felt alone a lot in life. My purpose became my family and I centered by thoughts upon doing what was right. My husband (Terry) found us a new church and a new beginnings.
I would not be who I am today without my past. I totally believe Jeremiah 29:11 God has a plan, a promise and a future for each of us! I look in the mirror and I tell myself daily: I can do this day with joy and count blessings. Then I find a scripture to hold onto daily. The mirror shows me some wrinkles and gray now, but my heart is young and my hope is new daily.
1 Samuel 30:6 ~
David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the LORD his God.
YOU INSPIRE ME ~ David encouraged himself. Each of us must encourage ourselves daily. We find our strength in God and know that a new day brings so many new thoughts. Focus on what is good and purpose this a great day.
I am thankful that God open the door for my new website and words to write you. My prayers continue for those who read it and families/friends. God is great and greatly to be praise, but there are times when we feel alone. Just remember to open the word of God (Bible) and you are never alone in thoughts unless you want to be. God knocks on the door of our hearts, we open it and he begins encouraging us through words. I'm not saying it's easy to get over harsh words, broken times of life, but it's certainly has changed my world by me saying yes to God. It didn't happen overnight, but over time.
Find a connection place. Church is a great place to connect and find other people who totally relate to your story of life. Each of us have been through things and broken places of some sort. You might look at me now, but you haven't seen my total past. A place of loneliness, broken and just down. God connected my life to others who surrender their will to God and they helped me find myself again. I was lost somewhere in deep hurt and God mended those broken places to bring to me to now. My now of writing and teaching. Leading others to a growing relationship with God and finding yourself becoming better and not bitter. I'm proud of those who reach beyond and begin again. I did and it changed my daily living.
I hope you will pass this blog onto your families and friends. I care from the middle of my heart for people. I do my best daily to live what I teach and learn not to own understanding in some areas of life. Thank you for your time in reading this and purpose this a great day.
