Nothing is as important as passion. No matter what you want to do with your life, be passionate. Jon Bon Jovi

Passion, it’s that thing inside of us that makes this life worth living, and without it, life just seems to be pointless, and we wonder why we are even here. This is why it is so crucial that we discover that thing(s) that make us get out of bed in the morning, and do it. Some are blessed to be able to do this for a living, but for many of us, we just do it for the pure love of doing it. It gives us fulfillment, and gives us something to look forward to each day. For me, I have combined two of my favorite things; spending time with God, and sharing my heart with you. I never use an alarm clock; in fact, I can’t really remember the last time I used one, probably my early twenties. I actually look forward to going to bed each night, because I know as soon as I wake up, there is a special time just waiting for me, here where God and I get alone, and we just spend time together. It is no doubt my favorite time of the day, and without fail, He will give me something to share with you.
Today, the topic is just that, passion. I think today’s message is mostly for me, but perhaps it will help some of you as well. I confess, I have lived most of my life not having any idea of what I wanted to do. It seems like I have tried to answer everyone else’s call but my own. Trying to find my place in this world is something I have always struggled with. But these last few years I have seemed to finally settle into what God wants me to do with my life, and I share that with you daily. He gave me this passion for writing, and I consider it such a blessing to have this opportunity to simply share my heart with the world. I feel like I am in the beginning stages of something big God is going to do in my life, and that is exciting for me, and gives me great hope for my future. I was contacted this week by a lady I met on LinkedIn who wants to do an interview with me for her radio show to talk about my book, and our story of inspiration. What is God up to? I guess we will soon see. For an introvert like me this is very scary, but also exciting at the same time. Just like when I preach, I will just have to let the Lord do the talking for me.
The other thing I am most passionate about is, loving my wife. I know you probably get tired of me always writing about this, but she is THE most important thing to me this side of Heaven, so of course I am going to write about it. You see, she is my EVERYTHING, and she is who motivates me to be the very best version of myself possible. She is so much more than just my wife, she was a precious gift God gave me 26 years ago; and how can we not give a precious gift from the Lord the very best we have to offer? I also know that I would not be half the man I am today, without her by my side. James 1:17 say’s, “every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father.” She was such a gift to me, and I will certainly do my best to honor the Giver of that gift, by the way I care for her.
Those are my passions, but what are yours? Perhaps it’s writing poetry, maybe it’s painting, or even gardening. Whatever it is, find a way to do it, and share it with the world. Passions are meant to be expressed, and keeping them locked away in our hearts and never sharing them with the world, is not the reason God gave them to us in the first place. In the words of Dr. Wayne Dyer, "Let the world know why you're here, and do it with passion.
From my heart to yours!
