God Breathed…..

inspirechange1.jpg

The word inspiration comes by way of Vulgate Latin and the King James English translations of the Greek word θεοπνευστος (theopneustos, literally, “God-breathed”) found in 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Inspire means “God Breathed” I have heard it said that it means “In Spirit” maybe God Breathed means the same thing? I mean….I guess it does!  It’s all about God.  Makes sense, when I’m inspired to do something I do believe it is God breathed. All inspiration comes from God; so inspiration is God Breathed or God inspired…..you are in spirit.

If you feel disconnected from God then you may not feel inspired often. I think God is inspiring us daily to either pursue new ideas or to continue forward with an idea he inspired in us already.

I want to inspire change; and to do so I definitely think the inspiration would need to come from God; because change of that size would need God to oversee it!  Having said this I feel this is one of the BIG reasons it is so important to stay connected to our Divine creator! We need to stay connected so that He can inspire in us the big ideas we are meant to do in this life!

Are you connected? Are you inspired to do great things?!

I am Learning To Be Brave…….

christian

Yes, I am a Christian!  I know if you are a follower of my blog; you already know this.  But I feel it necessary to say it…out loud…today!

I accept that I am not your run of the mill Christian person. But that does not make me any less a Christian; although there are some who would disagree with me. So for that, yes that, that is the reason for my title. I am learning to be Brave!

Over the last 8 years as I have been on this journey from there to here….I have spent a lot of time in hiding! Yes, in hiding. I know….shocking! Or shameful. Whatever. We all have to get there in our own time and way. The point is I have arrived!

I am ready to say out loud that I am an eclectic mix of many thoughts and beliefs! I am not your average Christian. But a Christian I am! And no matter what anyone says…you can’t change my belief!  It has taken me some time to get to a point where I can embrace myself! But I am embracing myself now. I LOVE my beliefs! I love that I am a tolerant person who loves more than she….. doesn’t…..

I LOVE that I have learned from my journey how to let go. I have learned how to be tolerant. I have learned how to be tolerant without losing my beliefs. I have come to the realization, through all of my eclectic teachings, that I can disconnect without losing faith or love for and in others.

I have learned that forgiveness is a need that is universal; regardless of your faith. I have learned that love prevails…love teaches…..love opens you up to hear what others are saying….and when they are hurting.

Like taking the thorn from the lions paw and gaining love forever;  I have removed my thorn; and now know…Love is mine forever; if I want it. And what is to follow is a world filled with opportunities! Opportunities to grow, to help others, to heal, to witness change and growth!

What could be better? I am learning, no, I have learned to be brave! And the world is now opened up to me.

Are you aware that the first step in your journey begins with forgiveness? Maybe you are and you can’t seem to take that step? I understand! It is a hard step to take and it is a hard thing to believe. We can get into our own head to the point that we do not believe that! And we do not believe it is even possible! We truly feel that our anger and resentment; our unforgiveness, is serving us well. And I understand that feeling.

I say you are perfectly welcome to your feelings! But may I suggest that they have a season? We need to move from the season of anger into the season of forgiveness and the season of letting go, just as the trees move into Autumn!

It is true!

If you are not ready to hear this; I understand! I love you. I know it…
