    Default Diary of Inspirations

    Share every things that inspire you (song lyrics, stories, quoted, scripture, experience, etc.)

    I'll start with what i get today. I listened to a Christian song but unfortunately i forgot the title. It says that even when people change, even when everything dissapears, even when noone can understand us, the Love of God lasts forever. He is the faithful God and He will always love us, no matter what.
    That's what i got today.

    Share what you get and be an inspiration for other people
    When I look back at my past, I realised one thing: Even in the darkest moment of my life... God was there.

    "Forgiveness"

    It’s the hardest thing to give away
    And the last thing on your mind today
    It always goes to those that don’t deserve

    It’s the opposite of how you feel
    When the pain they caused is just too real
    It takes everything you have just to say the word

    Life stories inspire me. I've been listening to Joyce Meyer and what she went through as a child. (Sexually abused by her own father, for many years - and her mother was aware!) Eventually she was able to forgive her father, and he was able to accept Christ before he died and asked for forgiveness from both Joyce and her husband, Dave. This inspired me so much, knowing that the world's wickedness, everyone's sins combined - Jesus is able and is willing to forgive. Just how great is that?! Truly salvation is the most precious gift ever.

    Another life story that inspired me is Andrew Wommack's son, being raised back to life, after being clinically dead for 4 or 5 hours. He and his wife Jaimie both felt and knew in their hearts, that it wasn't yet time for their son to die. So, during this time of waiting, they only praised and blessed the Lord, giving Him thanks (knowing full well that God gives and takes away) but they just continued to praise God, and after hours, their son, Peter came back to life. This inspires me to keep believing that prayer works.

    Also, I was reading about Hezekiah and how God answered his prayer to be rescued from the hand of the Assyrians. And this verse, spoke volumes to me:

    Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, “Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: Because you have prayed to me concerning Sennacherib king of Assyria, Isaiah 37:21

    This inspired me to continue to believe that God does answer prayers, although not all of them, but God does answer. And that's good enough for me. God is good.

    A Guidepost article from 1972 relates a short story titled "I'm Still Learning to Forgive"It was in a church in Munich that I saw him, a balding heavy-set man in a gray overcoat, a brown felt hat clutched between his hands. People were filing out of the basement room where I had just spoken. It was 1947 and I had come from Holland to defeated Germany with the message that God forgives. ...*And that's when I saw him, working his way forward against the others. One moment I saw the overcoat and the brown hat; the next, a blue uniform and a visored cap with its skull and crossbones. It came back with a rush: the huge room with its harsh overhead lights, the pathetic pile of dresses and shoes in the center of the floor, the shame of walking naked past this man. I could see my sister's frail form ahead of me, ribs sharp beneath the parchment skin. Betsie, how thin you were!*Betsie and I had been arrested for concealing Jews in our home during the Nazi occupation of Holland; this man had been a guard at Ravensbruck concentration camp where we were sent. ...*"You mentioned Ravensbruck in your talk," he was saying. "I was a guard in there." No, he did not remember me.*"I had to do it — I knew that. The message that God forgives has a prior condition: that we forgive those who have injured us." "But since that time," he went on, "I have become a Christian. I know that God has forgiven me for the cruel things I did there, but I would like to hear it from your lips as well. Fraulein, ..." his hand came out, ... "will you forgive me?"*And I stood there — I whose sins had every day to be forgiven — and could not. Betsie had died in that place — could he erase her slow terrible death simply for the asking?*It could not have been many seconds that he stood there, hand held out, but to me it seemed hours as I wrestled with the most difficult thing I had ever had to do.*For I had to do it — I knew that. The message that God forgives has a prior condition: that we forgive those who have injured us. "If you do not forgive men their trespasses," Jesus says, "neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses." ...*And still I stood there with the coldness clutching my heart. But forgiveness is not an emotion — I knew that too. Forgiveness is an act of the will, and the will can function regardless of the temperature of the heart. "Jesus, help me!" I prayed silently. "I can lift my hand, I can do that much. You supply the feeling."*And so woodenly, mechanically, I thrust my hand into the one stretched out to me. And as I did, an incredible thing took place. The current started in my shoulder, raced down my arm, sprang into our joined hands. And then this healing warmth seemed to flood my whole being, bringing tears to my eyes.*"I forgive you, brother!" I cried. "With all my heart!"*For a long moment we grasped each other's hands, the former guard and the former prisoner. I had never known God's love so intensely as I did then.-Corrie Ten Boom

    Although sin creates distance between God and us, we can look up from the lowest points in our lives and see Him—His holiness, goodness, and grace. If we turn away from our sin and confess it to God, He will forgive us. God answers prayers from the valley.

    Lord, in the daytime stars can be seen from deepest wells, and the deeper the wells the brighter Your stars shine; let me find Your light in my darkness.

    The darkness of sin only makes the light of God’s grace shine brighter.

    Amen! If God seems far away, guess who moved?

    It's a Hebrew word. You'd have to read East of Eden to understand the context I'm relating to (apologies, as I understand that makes it rather esoteric).

    God is too wise to be mistaken
    God is too good to be unkind
    So when you don't understand
    When don't see his plan
    When you can't trace his hand
    Trust His Heart

    In 1862, there was a conflict in Minnesota and parts of North & South Dakota. The Sioux tribes sold land to the government and were given room on reservations for a sum of 1.6 million dollars. The money was not forthcoming. They began to starve and were told to, ’Go eat grass’. They fought back, killing many settlers.

    Fast forward, Native American children were taken from their homes and placed in boarding schools and foster homes, abused physically, sexually, culturally.


    One Native American woman turned to drugs. She had three children who she subsequentially abused with the same treatment she, herself had received.

    One day, two young girls came to her home. They were abused and brain washed and sent on their way.

    One of the girls turned to her and said, “God forgives you. I do, too.”

    The girl was struck with amnesia and remembered 20 years later when God knew she was able to handle the matter. With many reasons to hate for a life of sorrow caused by the event, the woman researched the chain of events that led to the victimization, looked deep in her heart and forgave again, the Native American woman.

    Pray for them all.

    "One of the greatest statements of faith is by these three men. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego...
    answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. 17 If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. 18 But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.” -David Jeremiah
