Passion for Purpose

I firmly believe that all of us have a passion for something. No matter how big or small, we all have it in us. It is undeniable. Some of us may push it aside, ignore it, or say I will get to it later while others pursue it, but all of us have it. Whatever you’re passionate about is your purpose.

It takes drive and determination to follow through. Just as in tennis the follow through is one of the most important parts of the swing. The people that are most successful in whatever they choose to do are those that are determined and focused to get there. They may be faced with distractions and detours too but they NEVER give up on their passion.

I am not talking about relationships. I am talking about a passion for the purpose of your life. There are books, videos and seminars on how to reach your purpose. They all say the same thing…. FOCUS, PLAN and may I add PRAY! Who better to seek for guidance, but God. He instilled in you, your purpose before you were created and He has the plan. So, I say….. first PRAY! Once you receive the answer, then PLAN (which includes writing it down) and then PURSUE! Keep it in the forefront and NEVER give up.

Somebody is reading this and saying that it’s too late. That you have put it off for too long and you can’t get there. I say…NOPE! Since GOD put the passion in you, and the idea crossed your mind to even consider it, then it’s not too late. It may not be on the scale that you once desired it to be but you can do it. Watch God put the people in your path to help you. Watch Him move things around to make it happen. HE is God remember. HE can do all things and since HE is in you, so can you.

I challenge you. Don’t sleepwalk through life and wake up one day and say I meant to. I pray that you will pursue it. Please do. Stir up your gift and live on purpose for your passion!

For nothing will be impossible with God. Luke 1:37 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Running Won't Solve it! Turn Around!!!

Sally was tired! Tired of the made for TV movie that had become her life. She felt that if she could run away she wouldn't have to face it and it would all be behind her. How was she going to do it though? She had responsibilities and obligations that she felt that she must fulfill. Feeling trapped she decided to make a run for it.

She got in her car and drove away. She didn't know where she was going, only that she was running. The faster she went, the louder the sound of her heart resonated in her head. She rode to the rhythm until she heard the spirit say,"Where are you going? You do realize that the further you go, the longer it is going to take you to come back! You can't drive or run forever. Eventually you WILL get tired and will have to stop. Then, in order to solve the problem, you are going to have to go back." Sally didn't want to hear it but knew it as truth. God said, "How about you put everything in my hands, follow my lead and let Me handle this! Move over and let Me drive!". Sally exhaled and began to cry. This times it was sobs of relief. She knew that with God taking care of her, the burden would be lighter. She realized that she had gotten caught up in doing it all on her own and had forgotten Who was in charge of her life! "Okay God!", she said! "Thank You! My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus'blood and righteousness. I won worry about tomorrow for I know you hold my hand!"

She turned the car around with a renewed vision and restored faith. Everything was going to be as it should be-His will and His way-Pushing Forward!

**I wrote this note for I felt that someone feels like there's no hope. Remember in God there is always mercy. Keep the faith! I pray for peace in Jesus name. Amen!
