What awakens your soul, makes you truly feel alive?

When I sit at my desk to write, and feel the stirring of something within my heart to write about I begin to feel alive. Writing awakens my soul. It reminds me that we are all human. And although no two people are alike, we can each share and learn from one another's experiences.

Writing from these thoughts stirs something within me. It's like someone is taking a boat paddle and churning the waters of my soul. I feel my spirits rise. It's in these moments that I feel God speaking to me and leading me. He is the light and direction in my writing.

There have been many times that I've strayed from Him. I thought, 'I can do this on my own. Why am I asking God for help? He's too busy with more important things.' But you know what? I can't do this without Him. He is my inspiration. He is my guide. Without Him, I'm just an ugly lump of clay.

What awakens your soul? What makes you truly feel alive?
