Unrelenting Passion

Your Passion will always have a connection to your life like an unrelenting string or rope. Sometimes it is only a sewing string barely hanging on & sometimes its an unbreakable chain. Most of us although are somewhere between a sewing string and perhaps a 1/4″ size rope. Our passion has been criticized, stomped on, forgotten, lost and sometimes just thrown out. Why does it always seem to hold on? Why does it always seem to prick our thoughts when we least expect it.

To be honest the most I am reminded of passions is when I meet someone that has achieved something I so desired to achieve at some point in my life.

*The first thoughts are reminders of the Happy Feelings I received in thought

*The next were the excuses & life circumstances that prevented me from achieving

*The last was the overwhelming depressed feeling of failure

Had any of these thoughts recently?

 

I have come to the understanding that Your Passions in Life are actually millions of seeds that were planted & ordained to grow. Matter of Fact these seeds were meant to Flourish! Picture an empty 100 acre track of land. Now consider your creator walking in a weaving path dropping seeds on this empty track. As time progressed some seeds sprouted, other grew & some never saw the light of day. Now think of the environment this land has seen.

Some days are sunny, some raining, some storms & come and wiped out everything. Some trampling has occurred. Perhaps you are imagining crowds running through your track colorful, beautiful flower garden. Some are imagining monster trucks having a heyday on all of your rose bushes & fruit trees. Some are literally imagining a tractor tilling up all the land & demolishing any evidence of life leaving only soft, dry, icky brown dirt.

As we talk about passion & love we can be reminded of our dreams. Some of you may have a harder time & some of you may recall instantly. In ALL cases these passions will always be a part of your creation. In every case above, the seeds could never become unplanted. They never are removed from you.

Allow yourself to revisit your Passions. Write them down. You can even take note on why you have that passion and what would come out of you pursuing that passion. Take captive of negative talk, do not allow yourself to believe those passions will not come to pass or that it is too late. If you have not started a Journal I encourage you to begin one now.

Write at the Top “My Passions are Unrelenting”

  1. What 3 Passions do I have.
  2. Compliment these with Goals that you have let lay dormant. Whether they match or not. Journaling may allow somethings come to the forefront of your mind that need expressing.
  3. Journal the images that your mind creates. “When I think about these passions I see…”
  4. If someone were to pursue these passions what character strengths would they need? For example “This would require someone to be Strong, Loving, Intuitive, Positive, Knowledgeable, Caring, Inspiring…”
  5. Then Create 3 “I statements”
    1. I am Loving
    2. I Inspire others around me
    3. I am a Strong Woman/Man
  6. You can end your journal entry with a promise to yourself or a prayer to God. Ask Him to stir these desires & help be your encourager everyday as you pursue your passions once again.

You Are Worth So Much More

I had a conversation with a lovely lady this week. Her heart was telling her theirs something more to life than what you are living, the holy spirit whispered you deserve better. The world says but you have to quit drinking, you have to clean yourself up, you have to be a better person, you have to walk straight first. I said beautiful Woman and Daughter of God you are. You have to do none of these to deserve what God has declared. You already are wonderful, beautiful, successful, and totally worth all Good Things, you just have to see how God sees you. Your Father wants nothing more than to erase the times in life you have hurt, He has heard your screams, your sufferings, your cries, prayers & questions. His desire is for you to tune out the world and tune in the voice of the Holy Spirit to which He has sent to guide you. God is Peace, Love, Kindness, Joy….if you do not feel these things it is not God, tune them out, say I will no longer turn a ear to those lies and declare God’s Blessing over yourself. God already has since the day you were born, you are just now beginning to let Him into your Heart.

“Dear Heavenly Father. I thank you for the Lady reading this, I pray your blessing over her, that her heart begins to beat with the new Love she has desired and is now seeing is the one and only true love she needs. Let her know & feel that she is beautiful and totally worth All Your Love in Jesus Name Amen!”

Where to Begin

If you are finding yourself here today reading this blog, you are ready to grow with God. I find that some people have the yearning for God’s growth in their lives, yet they do not even know why or even who God is.

I am here to tell you that is ok. God has revealed himself to you through the urgency to get to know Him. Finding a spiritual mentor is in my opinion the first step. I feel that it is natural for us to seek advice from those around us. Especially when we are going through something difficult. It is ok and humanly natural to want and seek guidance. But what if the guidance you are seeking is taking you down a path of destruction, frustration & emptiness? When you find a spiritual mentor, He/She will guide you in the direction of God’s plan for your life. Growing and reaching the true touch of the Love of God will reveal peace, love and comfort beyond any guidance to fixing what you have going on right now.

Some Ideas for Spiritual Mentors:

1. Family that you know has sought God’s design for their life & lives by HIS direction

2. Pastor of your church or a new church if you are looking

3. Women’s Ministry Leader or Volunteers Start asking

4. Friend that you know is head over heels in LOVE with Jesus
