Every human being got passion. Humans are made to be skilled- it was given by God as a gift. It was a form of grace. You got to know it and live with it by heart. Don’t ever let go of your passion. If you think you are good at something and you love doing it pursue it! If you feel good when you express kindness, show kindness then! If you love to give then give generously. If you are good at expressing love, be genuine. If you are good in encouraging and making instruction then do counseling. If you are good at words and sharing wisdom then evangelize or make a book. If you are good in dancing, singing, making poetry then develop it and share! Life has many to offer, you just need to discover what’s in the box!
Romans 12: 4-8
4d For as in one body we have many parts, and all the parts do not have the same function,5so we, though many, are one body in Christ* and individually parts of one another.6e Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us exercise them:* if prophecy, in proportion to the faith;7if ministry, in ministering; if one is a teacher, in teaching;8if one exhorts, in exhortation; if one contributes, in generosity; if one is over others,* with diligence; if one does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.
Before anything else..
How do you define passion?
Passion is something you love doing. It is not something you’re master of but something you love. You are driven to do it because you got that desire. God poured us with passion because God is love. Therefore passion is love.
James 1:17-18 says “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of first fruits of all he created.”
Sometimes passion is being left out; we slip it away in our heart. There is some point in life that we are going downhill. We are discourage, disturb, upset, we lose hope, self-esteem is low, we think we are not good enough. Life is changing, as well as priorities, perspectives, influence and lifestyle.
We are busy chasing people and career that we thought it can fill our emptiness. We forgot to trust God. We forgot that it is not people we need to please and glorify but God alone. We forgot to glorify him through our gifts, it turns out that we are glorifying our desire. So we got discourage and upset because we all know that humans really don’t satisfy. So Passion fades…
So we need to learn and relearn over time not to let go of God’s given passion. Once we neglect our gifts or passion with wrong reason God will remove it. We must fall in love with ourselves over and over again. And most especially to be in love everyday with God. What I mean of falling in love with ourselves is to love yourself enough just as God loves you. Always fill yourself with God’s love for you to glorify him. He gave us this character to glorify him alone.
“Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created.”
No matter what happen. People may not believe what you could possibly do. You may feel envious because someone is good enough than you do. Do not let it in. Do not entertain those negative vibes; it is not from God but from evil. Believe in yourself and be positive about it. No one is made useless, everybody has a function. Appreciate those people doing good and getting better. They have gone also through a lot of things, you just don’t know it. So acknowledge them, you don’t know how acknowledgement can take its part of positivity. When you are down, falling apart, tired, slothful in spirit. Go and wander! Travel somewhere peaceful, find meaning and hold on to prayer. Go on and seek for him… then finally you’ll find him again. Do it day and night, these trouble shall come to pass.
Proverbs 8:17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
1 John 4:7-8 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
We were made uniquely but each one of us belong to a one body. No one is useless, everybody has a gift. Always remember that we are made to glorify him. So thank him for the passion. Do not let anyone snatch it. Don’t let him be disappointed for carelessness but work on it. Keep your passion burning
3c For by the grace given to me I tell everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than one ought to think, but to think soberly, each according to the measure of faith that God has apportioned.
. 1 Peter 5:6-7 Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
Not to us, O LORD, not to us, But to Your name give glory Because of Your lovingkindness, because of Your truth
