Finding Inspiration: Why I look to God for my "Inspiration"

Inspiration is a gift from God that has the power to direct my artistic path, guide me in my artist journey, I truly believe this. I never worry about my art sales or my next painting, I know that God had an ultimate plan in my future.

God has the power to provide me with incredible inspiration, transform my art path, fuel my dreams, and overcome any obstacle. God allows my space to be filled with divine inspiration that transcends my own limitations, this magic happens. Through prayer, a study of God's word, and embracing my God-given purpose, I allow a pathway to live an inspired life that leaves a lasting impact on the world.

In a world filled with beauty and intrigue, we still have challenges and uncertainties that can take away our space are even our desire to create. In times like these, I look for moments of inspiration even if it is from walking on the beach, wondering between the trees or just enjoying the lights of the city from the metro. I take a lot of pictures to capture a visual to later add to my memories of what I saw. When I look back on my pictures, I let those memories inspire me and they becomes the beacon of hope that guides me towards my artistic aspirations. Whether it's igniting the spark of creativity, spurring personal growth, or motivating me to overcome obstacles, inspiration plays a pivotal role in shaping my creative world and for that fact, my life in general. When I allow God to enter into my creative space, I tap into a wellspring of limitless inspiration that transcends any human limitations.

When I talk about inspiration, it's essential to recognize its ultimate source—God. As the creator of the universe, God is the epitome of divine inspiration. His boundless wisdom, love, and power are the wellspring from which all inspiration flows. From the breathtaking beauty of nature to the intricate complexities of human existence, every aspect of creation reflects God's divine inspiration. All I have to do is look around me, to know this.

One of the most profound ways I tap into God's inspiration is through His words in the Bible. The Bible talks about stories of triumph, resilience, and unwavering faith, the Scriptures offer timeless wisdom and guidance. When we immerse ourselves in the teachings of the Bible, we unlock a treasure trove of inspiration that equips us to face life's challenges with courage and perseverance.

So how do I allow my soul to feel this divine inspiration? First, by praying. Prayer is my first direct line of communication with God. It allows me to pour out my heart, seek guidance, and find solace in His presence. Through prayer, I can invite God's inspiration to infuse my personal life and my artistic life. It is in these moments of quiet contemplation that I open my soul to receive divine insight, encouragement, and direction and even inspiration. By seeking God's will and aligning my desires with His, I position myself to be a vessel of His divine inspiration.

Here are my honest thoughts…

Each one of us has been uniquely created by God, with a purpose and calling that is unlike anyone else's. When we tap into our God-given gifts and talents, we unlock the potential for greatness. It is through the lens of our divine purpose that we can find true inspiration. By aligning our actions and aspirations with God's plan for our lives, we discover a sense of fulfillment and meaning that transcends worldly achievements.

God's inspiration is not meant to be hoarded but shared with others. When we let our lives become vessels of God's divine inspiration, we become conduits of His love and transformation. Through acts of kindness, encouragement, and uplifting words, we can inspire those around us to reach for their own dreams and aspirations. By pointing others towards God's love and grace, we become instruments in His hands, spreading the light of inspiration in a world that desperately needs it.
