The Easter Season

As we enter the Easter season, it's that time to lower our heads and give thanks for the gift God gave us through HIS son. Forgiveness.
Today, you have freedom from your sins, because of God's gift to you.
I hope today, you'll give thanks for everything you have. Easter is the time of year to celebrate the wonderful blessings you have in your life. Friends, Love, Children, Family and a God who gave them all to you.
As we near good Friday, remember to offer forgiveness to all of those around you and give thanks for these wonderful gifts.
Your Inspirational Friend,
Tim

A Friend

I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted to the blog. I am traveling in the dessert this week. I was reminded of today's story. So I thought I'd send it along. Always a good reminder to have.
Be Blessed!

The Potter's Hand

A little wisdom and patience goes a long ways.
Today, I search for the holy spirit to move through me to use me for God's purpose. The story today talks about how God challenges us to step up to the plate. In the heat of a moment do we anger quickly or step back and respond as Jesus would?
That phrase that should guide you today fits here nicely... What would Jesus do?
In the heat of the moment today, be slow to anger. Take a deep breathe, step back and ask yourself, what would Jesus do?
Ask God for just 5 minutes of patience to make the "right" choice. At the end of the day, look back and see how God has made a impact in the life of others around you today.
Inspiring you to grow in your faith by touching your heart,
Tim

Father's Day

In the month of June, I begin to focus my attention to that one Sunday a year that is my day to show my kids what being a father is all about.
In the vast library of stories I've collected over the past 8 years doing the daily stories are numerous stories of parents giving up their son. Just as God did for us.
Today's story is from my classics section and a testimony of how the choices and scarifices we make in our faith impact the future of other people's lives.
This is so true for me today. The many emails I've received from all over the world the past few days has humbled my heart. I am so amazed at how many lives the daily stories touch all around the world. How the words I send out everyday in the stories help inspire so many of you on a daily basis with your walk with God.
I am so thankful that God continues to use me to inspire you. How great it is to grow with you in your faith. As your faith grows, my faith grows.
I am so thankful to God for the many blessings he sends me, including you!
Your Friend in Faith,
Tim

My Grandmother

My heartfelt thanks to all of you who took the time to write and share your thoughts. I am doing well and a little time will help heal my heart. I know I'll miss my grandmother, she was a great lady.
The service at the church was very moving today. Everyone who spoke talked about how she helped so many and gave so much of herself to others. She really worked hard to serve God and those people around her church felt God's presence when they were around her.
Thanks again for your emails, your words of comfort and your prayers. All are most appreciated.
In God's Love,
Tim

Old Barns

Today's story comes from my good friend Bob in Memphis. The two of us are old barns. We've weathered well through the years, yet Bob and I know that we'll sparkle like little babies when we arrive home.
How about you?
Are you weathering well?
Is your heart prepared for where you're going?
Inspiring you daily, touching your heart,
Tim

Jazzfest

Back from the Big Easy!
No inspirational message was sent on Friday. I was out of town in New Orleans at the 36th annual jazz festival. What a wonderful treat to hear such great artists and their music. As in the past years, I met so many wonderful people. God uses my life in so many ways to touch and inspire so many other people. I was fortunate to be able and share the Inspiration Daily ministry with people. To tell them my testimony of how God uses me daily to inspire folks all over the world. What a treat. Always warms my heart to see a smile on someones face when you share your faith with them.
Today's story, This Morning, is a favorite of mine. The story helps me keep my focus on God. So often, I allow myself to get so busy in my life, I fail to allow time for God. He has a way of humbling my heart when I forget it's not my life, but his. My focus should be on serving him. This story serves as a reminder for me to keep my focus on God, daily.
Have a wonderful day,
Tim
