I haven’t done this in forever but Ryan reminded me of it…so here goes for a 5 minute Friday free write with no editing and just writing!
My friend texted me about passion earlier today and was asking if I knew what I was passionate about. I loved the question! I also was a little stumped by the question. Sure, there are plenty of things that I can think of that fit the category, but how do I pick and how do I rank them. Better yet, does it even matter if they are in “order?” Passions are interesting things. Especially when I start thinking about the Bible and about how our passions line up with our callings and our gifts. Sometimes God really does call someone to something they are absolutely gifted at and love. Other times, he asks them to step out of their comfort zone and do something they may not love or may even be really bad at doing. Moses sure didn’t love speaking. Paul was definitely a gifted teacher, writer, and scholar. Jonah wasn’t passionate about going to Ninevah. The list goes on and there’s no specific formula. There is part of me that kind of loves that about God. The surprise, the expectancy, the suspense. What is He going to do? Where is He going to call us?
And there’s the 5 minutes! That went fast…and there’s a lot left unsaid. 🙂
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend full of little surprises and ways that God meets you right where you are.
