Want to be permanently inspired?
So many of us hunger for motivation, for purpose, for inspiration. We need a boost to lift our souls and give us the strength to tackle challenges and persevere through difficulty.
- We consume stories about heroic acts, looking for keys to greatness.
- We listen to music that pumps us up to release primal energies and flows.
- We engage with scenery and imagery that creates a sense of the sublime and awe.
- We meditate on positive quotes, sayings and Bible verses that remind us of larger values and truths.
All of these can be important sources of motivation. They give us a momentary high that lifts us toward our goals. They work, but only for a little while. Finding inspiration is a temporary fix, one that leaves us thirsting and hungering again as we face the next challenge. Finding motivation can be exhausting in itself.
We need a lasting inspiration, one that never fades. One outside of ourselves, from a source that never stops, never fails and always lifts us.
“If anyone believes in me, rivers of living water will flow out from their heart. That is what the Scriptures say.” Jesus was talking about the Spirit. The Spirit had not yet been given to people, because Jesus had not yet been raised to glory. But later, those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit. John 7:38-39
The Holy Spirit is our permanent source of inspiration. It flows up and out of our hearts like an endless bubbling spring. His inspiration is bigger than us. We don’t need to pump up our minds to energize our souls. We only need to follow Him.
When we conceived of Hodijo as an “inspirational brand,” we recognized the Holy Spirit is the source for Hope, Discipline and Joy. That is why our logo references the moment when the Holy Spirit breathed into believers for the first time (Acts 2).
The Holy Spirit is our most important life partner, source of strength and endurance, and our permanent inspiration.
