We’re all inspired by different things at different phases of our lives.
For me, right now, my family is probably the biggest inspiration that I have. God has blessed me with such an amazing friend for a wife, and my kids are such a pleasure to be with. When I think about it I literally start to question why it is that God has blessed me so much beyond what I deserve…and I’m not just saying that to sound like a good guy or something. I just don’t get it.
My family inspires me to take care of my body, so I’ll be there for them as long as I can be. They inspire me to put my 40 hours in at a job I am not super passionate about because I love being able to provide for them. They inspire me to work on the craft of writing and making people laugh, because they want me to do the things I feel like I’m supposed to be doing. And they inspire me to honor God with my life and the decisions I make, because I want to be a positive influence on all of them, helping them serve God in their own unique way.
To Erica, Kylie, and Parker: thanks for putting up with such a doofus for a dad. And thanks for being so incredible. I love you guys.
Whatever or whomever it is that inspires you, be sure to thank God today for bringing them into your life. Every good and perfect gift is from above.
