Discover Your Passion
We’ve heard it said that passion is oxygen for the soul. It’s also fuel for a life well-lived! We believe that nothing great can be accomplished without passion and enthusiasm.
In Colossians 3:23, Paul encourages us to do everything with passion and enthusiasm—not for others but for God. Passion is simply what drives and energizes you! It’s what motivates you to take action. It’s the force that gets you out of bed in the morning and keeps you focused to do your best.
When passion is directed productively for the benefit of others, it can change the world for the better. It can give you the fuel you need to overcome obstacles and challenges, rebound from disappointment of failure, and fulfill your God-given purposes. Passion is pregnant with optimism and belief.
Remember, our ultimate passion should be for the Lord. We read in Psalm 63:1 that David pursued God with everything he had; he was a man of God who followed hard after God.
“Discovering your Passion” is the third and final part of uncovering your Life Word. When you tap into your passion, it gives you the energy you need to live on purpose and maximize your power. There are several key questions that we have found are helpful to reveal your motivation and energy. These are the top three to help you Discover your Passion:
1. Where do I invest most of my time, energy, and money?
2. What matters to me deeply?
3. What energizes me to take action and motivates me to make a difference?
Passion reminds you that what you’re doing is important. God plants seeds of greatness in each of us and waters them with passion.
You will find your Life Word when you define your power, determine your purpose, and discover your passion. When you have discovered your Life Word, don’t let fear keep you from your destiny. Don’t let apathy keep you from experiencing an exciting and meaningful journey.
Live your Life Word with faith and courage, and make a profound, positive difference in the lives of others and leave the world a better place. Can you imagine if we all lived out our Life Words? We would change the world for Christ and leave a legacy that truly matters—all for the glory of God!
