"Rediscover your True Passions"

By Erik Carlson

Whenever I hear someone say "you can do anything you want to"; or "you are in control of your future/destiny/success", I don't hear that as an inspirational phrase, I hear that as a dangerous phrase.

I think the problem with telling somebody that 'they can have all that they desire', is that sometimes people get confused as to what their desires really are. The misdirection here is that the world may tell you what success means, things such as 'riches, career aspirations, power, fame, etc', but if you lose touch w/ your true purpose or calling, you can spend your life trying to attain things that are meaningless. You may even attain them, but your will still be unfulfilled if it goes against what you were truly meant to do.

O.K., now I've opened up a can of worms that cannot be discussed fully in a quick note; but my encouragement to you this month is to get back in touch with the deep-down, gut passions and dreams that you used to dream about when you were younger, and maybe keep flashing before your mind even today. Ignore the 'get rich quick' opportunities; and journal the ones that lie deep within. You can categorize them in three ways:

  1. A passion for a Role: (What you like to do)
  2. A passion for specific People: (whom you like to help)
  3. A passion for a Cause:(what you would like to see changed)
I read this morning in Psalm 20:4, “May HE grant you according to your heart’s desire, and fulfill all your purpose.” Since it is the Lord who makes these happen, keep an eternal perspective as you rediscover you heart’s desires. Now it gets fun!

Let's have relentless pursuit of the Truth, and we will all live victoriously above the line!
