Strength and Inspiration: Where does it come from?

Eric Liddell (Chariots of Fire): "And where does the power come from, to see the race to its end? From within. Jesus said, "Behold, the Kingdom of God is within you. If with all your hearts, you truly seek me, you shall ever surely find me."

I have to admit to owning the DVD of the movie, "Chariots of Fire". Every time I view it, I can't get through it without having a fresh new charge of strength and inspiration. And this quote in particular usually brings on a few tears. What can I say? The truth is, I'm fueled by emotion and emotional moments such as this one where Eric shares the source of his strength.

I have a passage from Scripture that's included in my email signature that provides similar strength and inspiration each time I see it:

Psalm 121:1,2
A song of ascents.
I lift my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
