My name is Tim.
I am your daily Inspiration person.
Everyday I send you an email message to inspire you and touch your heart.
My hope is that for one second out of your busy day, you'll stop, smile and think of God.
Everyday I get hundreds of emails.
The one I get the most is "Why"
Why do you do this?
Some people write that they think they know why. They say I am earning a spot in heaven.
To which I write them to explain God already has a place for me in Heaven and a place for you.
You can't earn a spot in Heaven, all you have to do is ask. Ask God to come into your heart and he'll save a place for you in Heaven too!
The reason I do the Inspiration list every day is because I want to use my talents to spread the word of God. I want to make a difference in your life, the way God has made a difference in mine. I would like to touch your heart with a story. A story that puts a smile on your face and warms your heart. I know the story doesn't do that every day. That's Ok. Just once in a while or even twice is enough to make a difference.
If you like the story, I know that you will pass it on to a friend. I sit and wonder sometimes how many people the story I will send to you today will eventually go one to touch. I watch the list grow everyday by over 100 people. I know that you forward the stories on to others and I am so grateful to you.
Today I received an email from a guy who was reading a story I put out on the inspiration list four weeks ago. The story had been forwarded six times and sent to over 40 people. He was so touched by the story he had to write and tell me. All of this put a smile on my face and warmed my heart. I think that this is God's way of touching my heart. When you forward a story on, know in your heart that God is working through you. Know that you will touch so many more people than just the one friend you send the story to. Know that you are making a difference in someone else's life.
My hope for all of this is that the day I arrive in Heaven, God will be standing there with a huge smile on his face. A smile like the smile my Sunday School teacher Zig has on his face every week when he shakes my hand and when he greets us. A smile that puts a smile on your face. A smile that warms your heart. A smile that can only come from God.
So when I arrive home, I hope that God will pat me on the back and say welcome home and good work Tim. He'll introduce me around to Paul, Timothy, John and others. They'll tell me the stories about you and how a simple email message changed your life. We'll share with each other about how you made a difference. We'll talk about how a single email message brought thousands of us together.
I hope you'll be there too!
And that finally after all these years we can meet, talk and share together about the daily email messages I sent you. You can tell me about all the people that you touched and how you made a difference in their lifes.
So that's why I send out these messages to you everyday.
I hope they make a difference in your day.
I hope that they inspire you to make a difference in this world.
I hope that the messages help bring you closer to God.
I look forward to meeting you someday. If not here, at home with my father.
You'll recognize me, I'll be waiting for you with a smile on my face that will warm your heart.
