What are you here on earth for? What did God have in mind when He created you? These questions and many others are questions that we ask ourselves often. Well I can tell you that He did not create you to have a mediocre life that doesn’t allow you to be fulfilled or unable to live out your passion.
Ephesians 2:10 tells us that we are the workmanship in Christ created for good works and those good works were prepared even before we were born. When you live out your passion you are actually doing the world a huge service whereas if you don’t live your passion you are doing the world a huge disservice. Your passion will always evolve out of a God given gift or talent that you have.
Whatever it is, let God guide you in living out your passion because it will play a role in your destiny. Here are 3 steps to living out your passion:
Proverbs 18:16 says a man’s gift will make room for him and bring him before great men. We all have weaknesses but if we focus on those we will never give our strengths enough attention to grow.
Start taking steps to help your passion flourish. Proverbs 10:4 states that the hand of the diligent will rule, but the lazy man will be put to forced labor. Be diligent to put forth effort to make your dream become a reality.
Turn your passion into a way of life. Along the way people may question you, but who cares? I Corinthians 1:27 tells us that God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise! Sometimes looking foolish is a good sign of great things to come.
Just ask S. Truett Cathy the owner of Chik-fil-a or David Green the owner of Hobby Lobby who started his company in 300 sq ft of retail space, how foolish they looked and how blessed they are living out their passion!
