Source of Inspiration

There are times in life where we feel very little inspiration. Inspiration to move forward, inspiration to love, even inspiration to  keep living. Those are difficult times, to put it quite mildly. What do we do? Where do we turn? Ask ten people and you may get ten different responses.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6

Jesus claims He is the way, the truth, and the life. There is no other way. I feel it is always a “safe bet” to turn to Him. You want inspiration for anything? Look at Him. Turn and look. Now, that requires you to stop doing what you are doing. You have to stop so you can turn. Obviously, to turn you must turn away from what you are facing so that you are able to face Him. And you must move your eyes away from what you are looking at in order to look at Him. Stop. Turn. Look.

You want beauty? He defines it. You will find NOTHING more beautiful. Life? He offers it. He is the ever-flowing fountain of life. Love? If you do not know God, you do not know love. God IS love. His love is indescribable, incredible, never-ending!

My words are failing me. It is inevitable that when I seek to express what I see when I stop, turn, and look, my words fail.  Yet…my eyes shine; my heart soars. Joy appears. Inspiration arrives. My foot moves forward, perhaps with a bit of a skip in my step. My direction may be a little altered as a result of where my eyes are fixed. I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Tu perfección, la fuente más profunda de mi inspiración –J.A.R.
