Recently I have found myself lacking in inspiration and passion for activities I am normally incredibly inspired and passionate about.
I love so many things, one of which is creating. To create life-oriented circumstances through the mediums of writing, dance, canvas, music... and the list continues. Creating is how I express, teach, illustrate, love, relate and so often is my therapy. I even describe it as "just breathing" to demonstrate its necessity to my heart.
I have realized that in order for me to complete these things, I must be inspired at least enough to pick up the pen or turn on the music.
The thing is, even my inspiration has a prerequisite. If my heart is not inspired by the Inspir-er Himself, I cannot even complete things that are so close to my heart.
When I cannot complete these things, I feel hollow and unsure when living life in most all ways. I lack intentionality because of this.
In order for this series of events to take place, I must simply look to Him and trust him.
I am thankful to identify this entire process so I may troubleshoot these situations in the future. However, I must point out that inspiration comes in many ways and I believe it is unreasonable to expect a similar sensation all of the time. Sometimes I have to do life without feeling like I am spurred on to do so.
Inspire-er>Inspiration>Creativity>Breathing>Pure heart, good conscience, sincere faith.
Without this sequence, all things are strained.(1 Tim 1:5-7)
I encourage you to seek your inspiration. Seek you inspire-er. You may just find your hope and purpose in life.
I apologize for the lack of posts this last month. I am excited to say I will be posting once or twice a week for the summer months.
