Fighting for Inspiration
To remain unfazed in this world is no small feat. I find that in between shades of the grey there is enough room for bursts of colour.
In the midst of the noise and chaos that is sometimes our world, we can find quiet. Somewhere, somehow.
In between errands, when your time belongs to someone else, when you are disregarded, looked upon as insignificant, when your value is questioned, there is enough room for bursts of colour.
Joy. Joy is the very bedrock of inspiration. The immovability of joy makes it possible at all times in all situations when required, to find inspiration. Joy in all circumstances absolutely refutes the lie that we are mere subjects to fate.
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” (Philippians 4:4)
We are called in Christ to have joy always. This is a shield from the thick darkness of this life. It is our weapon against the attacks on our mind and our hearts in the face of trouble.
Inspiration is fleeting, but joy can always find it.
For the joyful, inspiration is but a breath away. A sound. A speech. A vision in the mind. It’s found everywhere for the joyful, this thing we call inspiration.
We become its masters when we refuse to be mastered by the limitations of this world. We laugh in the face of obstacles and impossibilities because they force us to hold on to joy, that beautiful gift of the Sovereign to His beloved children who have learned how to hide under the shadow of His wings.
I find inspiration everywhere. And I speak to you darkness, that I will find it even in your midst. I serve a limitless God, who has blessed me with limitless joy!
I have found my own bursts of colour in the midst of the grey, a few minutes of inspired work in the face of hours-long obstacles and suckers of time.
Constant joy equals inspiration equals being a bright burst of light.
You are not limited
Not by limited things
You are a spirit on fire
A giant with wings
You will calm the crying baby
And gracefully clean up poop
You will work the mathematics
And you will create
And you won’t be late
For that presentation
You will have joy
On that forever queue
You will get to your destination
You will get to your final destination
Whole and complete
And very well spent
You will be replete
