What does it take to be inspired, especially when it comes to your relationship with God? For me, there are no fireworks, no feeling of physically bonding with my Savior, no Road to Damascus moment like Paul experienced.
When I think of God, I stand in awe of Him. He’s the one to whom I’m accountable. There is more a feeling of reverence and respect than one of looking at Him as my friend. On the other hand, He’s the best friend I could ever have. Even when I reject Him, get angry with Him and don’t understand Him, He is consistently the same.
I don’t think you need a inspirational awakening when you are devoted to God. He is our Father, our brother and the fire that excites our need to tell others about Him. His message saves lives and renews spirits. When others are inspired by the words, “you are forgiven” and “you are a child of God,” it inspires those receiving the words.
I’ve experienced miracles in my life and each time I knew they came from God, but the true in-breathing – divine inspiration – miraculous moment comes when we include others by giving them a piece of this hope and letting God do the rest.
