Faith: Finding Inspiration in Gods Words

Finding Inspiration in God’s Word

Finding inspiration in our lives at times can be very hard. Being inspired to pursue our goals and accomplish them is not an easy task. Many things will get in the way and set us back as we seek to inspire others as well. God inspires people, his believers and followers by giving us words of inspiration in the bible.

He declares his word to be true and offers us the most inspirational event in human history as proof. God gave us his only son Jesus Christ as a gift to inspire us to be more like him. What more inspiration do we need to see that God is perfect and holds the key to all our success.

We have to never give up on our dreams, goals and visions for ourselves.  You must be unstoppable and believe you are going to accomplish your goals.  We inspire others by acting, behaving, leading and guiding people in a positive manner that shines God’s light into the world.  

God inspires through his acts of mercy, grace and kindness.  As you seek to inspire and be inspired, surround yourself with people that inspire you.  More importantly, seek God’s leadership to inspire you to be a better person, better Christian, better husband, father, mother, brother, wife and all the other things you seek to be.

  1. Are you willing to be inspired by God’s words?
  2. Are you willing to ask God to inspire you and grow your inner spirit?

Isaiah 40:31, But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

John 16:13, When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.

God, I pray that you inspire me to be better everyday at all the things I seek to accomplish. I know that I can do this with you by my side, inspiring me to inspire others. Amen

Spirit Chronicle: Visited by Grandma Smith

Visited by Grandma Smith

In 1999 when my oldest daughter was about five years old I got up one night to go to the bathroom.  As I walked down the hallway, I heard her talking to someone.  Children that age often have an imaginary friend to entertain themselves so I didn’t pay much attention to it happening.  As I was coming back from the bathroom, I peeked my head inside the room and asked her who she was talking to.  She told me she was talking to Grandma Smith.

     Before I go any further, let me explain why this surprised me with her supposedly talking to Grandma Smith.  When Taylor was a baby, maybe four to six months old at the most Grandma Smith passed away.  Taylor was a baby and had been held by her Grandma a few times before she died.   She might have seen pictures but was so small and young she wouldn’t know who Grandma Smith was until a much older age.  With that background lets go back to the story of the heavenly visit from Grandma Smith.

     When I asked her who she was talking to, she said daddy I am talking to Grandma Smith.  I was confused and said, Taylor Grandma Smith is in heaven honey.  How can you talk to her if she is in heaven?  She looked at me and said, daddy there are two Grandma Smiths.  One in heaven and one standing right there beside you.  I did not know what to say, so I told her to try to get some sleep and it was awesome that Grandma was there with her. How do you react to that, I mean it takes some thought process and just time to process that.

     I went back to bed confused and wondering just what Taylor had been thinking and seeing.  I have had many encounters in my life with the spiritual world and to have my daughter seeing that was a little concerning. It didn’t concern me that she saw her Grandma, it was more of a concern that she may see other spirits that were not nice from the dark side. I have no doubt now that what she was seeing was Grandma Smith since Grandma was such a strong spirited lady that loved her grands and great grands more than anything.   We talked about it a few days later and the description I got and the way she says Grandma communicated led me to believe 100% that it was heavenly visit checking on Taylor.

Taylor never told me of any further instances of this as she got older. So this could have been a one time thing and being so young she was open to seeing spirits more likely. As we get older we tend to become more close minded about spirits, ghosts and things of that nature. I think Grandma was looking out for her and was checking in to see what she was doing and making sure she was safe. Our loved ones may leave this earlthy realm, but are always around us and watching over us bringing messages thru visits and dreams. I miss Grandma Smith but know that she is an angel looking out for her family and is now an old soul in heaven.

God Bless! KB
