A little behind on my writing. Been reading all along, ironically other things have kept me from my thoughts. I will try to post Day 9 tomorrow morning/afternoon and Day 10 in the evening.
Passion: Live The Way Jesus Intended
Talk about life-draining. Being involved in so many people’s lives often has you going in a million directions. Add to that your own life, and your job, and all the relationships that go along with them, and it’s easy to see how the passion can seep out of our daily life. But what about when the life-draining activities can’t be avoided? Like the workplace or people you have to deal with, but just suck the life right out of your existence. These are realities for me.
The only solution I can come up with is to ensure that the time for the life-giving activities is available. I thought about the things that give me life, that bring me joy and passion. The non-spiritual things. Because I do believe its alright to have fun. Golf, I need to get out and golf with friends, by myself, whoever, however, whenever. Baseball, I need to take a timeout and listen to a game on the radio, or watch a game on t.v. or grab some people and head downtown Detroit and catch a Tigers game. Coffee, I love coffee! And how relaxing and recharging it is to go sit at Courage Coffee in Hamtramck and enjoy a cup of coffee! The point is this, the things in your life that bring you joy, God has put them there so that your passion, joy and zeal for life can be sustained. We are social beings, and having the social interaction these life-giving activities brings helps refill your passion. So go fly a kite.
