Passion with a Purpose
Passion is less and less talked about these days.
It has been replaced with the idea that
we have to simply accept whatever current
situation life presents us with at the moment.
There is less and less encouragement,
and more and more discouragement,
when it comes to discovering our individual God-given passions.
This is disappointing because our God-given passions have been given to us with a purpose.
Passion with a Purpose
What does passion mean to you?
That was the question Christian author Deborah Bateman asked readers in an article published at LivingBetterAt50.com.
She also asked several other questions like “what do you love?” and “what would you do if no one paid you anything?”
Deborah gives the encouragement to “Discover what you love and do it!”
And she goes on to say…
“I hope you discover your passion, because when you do you get so much joy out of it. Don’t get me wrong, it is still work. Sometimes you may get tired or frustrated, but when you love something you keep coming back to it. No one has to prompt you to do it. You do it because that is what you love.” (read entire article here)
Deborah H. Bateman is a Christian author of multiple books including “Finding Our Identity in Christ.”

Have You Tapped Into Your God-given Passion?
The Bible gives us many warnings about the passions of a sinful nature and the need to keep them under control. A powerful way to do this is to keep the first and primary passion of our heart toward God and His Word.
“The passion of my soul’s desire is for the house of the Lord; my heart and my flesh are crying out for the living God.”
— Psalm 84:2 (BBE)
The passion of Christ is the ultimate example of passion with a purpose. It was not only a passion with a purpose, but a purpose in line with God’s will, and a passion that came with a price.
“To whom also He showed Himself alive after His passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.”
— Acts 1:3
Have you discovered your passion? It is worth discovering – even if it comes with a price. It will put a spark in your life, energize you and give you a positive drive to move forward, and a zeal to strive toward success. Why? Because your God-given passions come with a purpose, line up with God’s Word, and cause you to be a blessing to others!
May you tap into your God-given passion and live with a purpose and a life full of growing prosperity!
Be Blessed to Be a Blessing!
God bless you always,
