This morning I read a post on Facebook and the very word that came to my mind was Passion…
Susan Revermann, writes: Passion can be anything powerful or compelling, a strong desire towards something or just overall enthusiasm in life. Having passion in your life helps give personal power to live fully. When mind, body and spirit work together, it can help to manifest your potential and overcome obstacles. Many people shy away from seeking passion because of fear of failure and of taking the risks that will lead to an undefined future. Defining passion in life can fuel creativity and inspiration and change your life experience.
Yep, that defines my precious Brother-in-Law Mike Smith. This was what he posted: Forget about the Pied Piper because all of the little kids came out of their classrooms and followed me down the hall as I played “If You’re Happy and You Know It” on trumpet. The new primary playground is now open and I left them blowing bubbles and playing on the new playground!”
Mike retired from teaching band in public school and then went immediately to teach in a Christian school. His passion for music is evident the very moment he picks up his French horn. One is moved to emotion at the sound of the very first note he plays. Mike while passionate about music is even more passionate about Christ!!!
This caused me to think about my own passions in life. For as long as I can remember, I have been told “you are so passionate”. To that I say “YES I AM” !!! I love life and live it in such a way that everything and everyone matters. However, one area I am most passionate is Women’s Ministry and speaking God’s love, mercy, and healing over women’s lives. Women’s Retreats, Ladies Night, Teas, and Lock-ins are an awesome way to remove ourselves from the hustle and bustle of the world and focus on relationships…with both God and Sisters in Christ. However, Women’s Ministry is equally important in the everyday life; ministering to women who get caught up in the everyday hum drum life and become discouraged…Yep, this is the calling God has placed on my life and I am passionate about His calling!!!
What is your passion?
