PRUE PASSION!

Sunday’s Monday


     Passion is described in dictionary.com as a noun with 7 different definitions, of which 5 of them describe passion as a feeling of love or an emotion of lust while 2 of them hint toward passion being a desire. I have read up on this subject as well as listened to several different speakers on the topic and came up with my own definition. Pure passion according to Paul Loftin means; “1- Passion is not preference, feeling or emotion, it is an enthusiastic inter-determination and resolve to bring fruition to my deepest desire. 2- A heartfelt action purposed toward fulfilling a specific need for making a difference in this life.” This answered a lot of questions for me as to why there are people who are bursting at the seams with enthusiasm once they receive the Holy Spirit, and several months later they are confused, doubting, and dulled to the Spirit. They failed to feed their God-given passion to follow Him with His word, His will, and His way. Which is a must when developing a positive, loving connection with Jesus known as a relationship. They slowly reverted to fleshly feelings and desires because they did not heed what is written in John 15:4 (NLT), Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.

 

Many feel that passion is a predestined determination that is spiritually implanted at birth to fulfill our destiny. I believe this because people living out their passion are often filled with a feeling of completeness or wholeness that we can’t find or keep without fulfilling our passion. The deeper we dive into the life of our God-gifted passion the brighter our passion will grow and the hotter our fire will get. Our everything revolves around Jesus; we are often filled to the brim with an overwhelming resolve to do whatever God says it will take to forward our passion toward completeness. We come to recognize that we are living God’s plan for our lives and as I said earlier the more, we feed our passion with God’s understanding and our implementation our dedication and commitment are pushed through the roof. As it is written in Philippians 1:6 (NLT), And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. We along with our destiny are very important to God.

 

The heartbreaking side to this article is only a few (in the big picture of things) ever surrender to passions call. Now there are many reasons for this but from what I found fear, greed, and comfort seemed to be the main issues. Fear of failure, loss of income, and feelings of not being qualified to succeed. Which seems to point to a weak relationship with Jesus, fading confidence in their faith, and maybe even floundering in their relationship with Jesus. Over the last 20 or so years I have used this philosophy for God-anointed projects. “Should God call me, I must be ready to act with the confidence to do my part (in as much as up to me) and I believe my part is merely to seek out God’s path for me in this calling. You see, I believe that if the calling is of God, He already has the plan to take it from start to finish and all I ever need to do is my part in finding and following God’s plan.” God doesn’t create failures; He merely gives us the free will, to do so. Ergo, I try very hard to observe Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT), Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. 6 Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. This is what I do, to complete my part.

 

      Father God, I can’t praise you enough for your dedication to bring me to completion, there is not enough thankfulness in the world to say how grateful I am for your care and love for me. I exalt You oh God for the call You have put on my life, I pray You and Your name are being glorified by the works You do through me and I thank You for the visions, nudges, and revelations You send in the night. Thank you for giving Isaiah the where-with-all to write Isaiah 41:10, Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Dad, I can’t express how loved this makes me feel and how ecstatic I am, to be accepted into Your family. Please never let me forget where I came from so, I will always be grateful for where I’m! I pray to be filled with a passion that is ever overflowing with Your Love, Mercy, and Grace. Amen

 

HAVE A BLESSED WEEK BY BEING A BLESSING TO OTHERS!
