Influence part 3

I read this excellent post over at Matt Chandler's blog on inspiration & influence.

So I ask those who read and participate here:

What influences, deepens or inspires you in your relationship with Abba Father?

Or as Matt puts it, "what stirs your affections for Christ?"

Please comment, as I think we could all use some fresh ideas and perspective on this.

For me, there are lots of things that inspire me to want to dig deeper. Here are just a few:

Seeing people (especially young people) genuinely respond in worship - makes me weep just thinkin' about it.

Realizing how impressionable and vulnerable my kids are - what on earth am I doing to them?

Seeing the hand of God at work - In nature, His provision in our lives...

Just a couple of thoughts. Hope I am not the only one to post...

I was thinking this morning that nothing stirs my affections for Christ more, or helps me rebound from a funk, that when I that time to consider what I have, and am thankful.

Being thankful in spite of circumstances. Thankful when life is mundane.
