The word inspiration is defined by something that makes someone want to do something or that gives someone an idea about what you do or create. As a Christian when I think about inspiration my first thought is about Christ. That is my source of inspiration. The price he paid so that our sins can be forgiven is something that makes me want to strive everyday to do and live better. But what about us? Can we also serve as a form of inspiration to others?
If God is love then we most certainly can share and spread that love. For starters being an inspiration a lot of times is more about your actions than your words. People watch what you do more than they listen to what you say. How many times have you heard the word hypocrite being thrown around whenever someone’s actions didn’t line up with what they had to say.
If you are a believer in Christ then you are a walking reflection of him.
Share from your own experience. Your personal triumphs can inspire others to take action. I have learned some valuable lessons over the years. The main thing is that the only real security comes from God above. Not people or material goods. The things of this world are only temporary. The purpose of this platform was to share my experiences in the hope of inspiring others. The same goes for you. You may be the only one that can touch someone with your inspiring message. We all have a unique story to tell.
Being vulnerable is a big key to sharing your story. I’ve talked to so many people who have lived an incredible life and have great life experiences but don’t want to share them for fear of what other might think. I understand completely what that feels like because I once shared those same fears and anxieties before I started this blog. I was worried and scared about how others might view me. But you know what? I’m glad I decided to go against my fears because in a short amount of time I have been able to inspire others 🙂
Most of all be caring! I talked about sharing the love of God which means having compassion in your heart for those around you.
Let me end this post with some of my favorite inspirational quotes and scriptures.

God bless you all!
