Who do you love?

What if you had been diagnosed with an incurable sickness and diagnosed with less than six months to live? Would you feel differently? No,!? How about three months??? What is your passion? What thing you enjoy makes you say to yourself if they never pay me or give me another raise i would still do this?? Friend, that is your passion. Everyone has one, it is our unique gift that we can share with the world.
Show me what your checkbook looks like, and i will show you where your focus is. But describe to me your day and i should see what you love.  If i don’t?  How do you feel about that? Are you doing what you must because you choose too? What do you love? The bible records in the book of Matthew where your treasure is, your heart is there also. What is your treasure? I heard a saying in high school that “if you find a job you love, you will never have to work a day in your life..” I don’t know how true that is now almost 18 years later. But I know it makes the long hours bearable. It makes things you don’t enjoy drive you to go after what you want to do. It forces you to remain when you want to quit because it helps “pay the bills” while you work closer to your goal.

God has so much in-store for you, if you allow him your attention, not a minute or two at dinner time but an ongoing developing friendship. He can speak to you through his word. In your prayer time as well. Sure, I have heard from many that you really don’t hear anything in prayer. i get that. could it be that your life is turned up so where you don’t hear? Maybe you could turn down for Him?

I heard one of my favorite speakers say that the graveyard is where untapped ideas and hopes lay at rest in torment. Angry at the paradox they died with the only one that could have set them free and chose not to. My friend I don’t know what is worst. Know that I would die or, know that I had died and never lived. It’s not to late to follow after what makes you smile.. Praying for you to know your purpose and go after your dream.

I was a young man who worked for a great organization "Forged by the Sea." Now I'm an old head kicking back on the east side; where the sun doesn't set. I'm a man who is pursuing his contributions to the world. I'm not perfect. In fact, a work in progress until Jesus takes me home. Philippians 1:6
