You’ll know how free a person truly is by how free you feel when you’re around them” – Steve Brown Scandalous Freedom
I’ve discovered I’m distorting my portions. I’m fueling/eating the purpose as if I’m doing the same thing
Last night I read, reread & reread and then read again the chapter in Fervent on praying for your passion.
Initially I had to reread it because I think my mind was all over the place and then I had to reread it because I was crying and couldn’t see the words through my tears and then I had to reread it to actually wrap my brain around it.
What I started to realize is that the attack on our passion isn’t a passion in terms of what we enjoy doing but it’s an attack the passion on the joy in what we’re doing.
Satan’s number one priority is to kill steal and destroy. ABSOLUTELY that includes your joy.
But listen he has no ability to physically take anything from you as a child of God you are protected from him taking anything what he does is he whispers in her ear and tries to convince us that we are not clean we are not redeemed that we have not been sacrificed & surrendered by the blood of Christ.
God’s mercy says NO SATAN you have no power or authority over her.
That mercy is renewed EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
To restore your passion recognize that Mercy is the fuel and there’s an abundance of mercy and no condemnation in taking the supply God set aside for you!
Reconciled. Restored. Redeemed.
Surrendered & sacrificed because He thought I was ‘to die for’.
Beyond the muck & mess of our past He calls us clean without condemnation.
“Do not call something unclean if God has made it clean” – Acts 10:15
He leans in, no matter how low we are; Christ reaches out His hand, and breathes on us with a breath of new hope, new strength, new purpose.
But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. (Lamentations 3:21-25 ESV)
“Another version says I still dare to hope…His faithful love never ends, His mercies never cease…begin afresh each morning” (New Living Translation)
So take a long, deep look at yourself and answer this question: Have you lost your passion? Has your get-up-and-go simply gotten-up-and-gone? Passion is the fuel in the engine of your purpose. It’s your want-to. It’s what keeps you going when mundane tasks bore you or difficult one dissuade you. Passion is what keeps you moving in the direction your best intentions want to go. // #FERVENT 🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸
HOW FIT IS YOUR PASSION?
This month we’re breaking down what a common sense balanced approach to healthy living includes.
We’ve been WORKIN ON OUR FITNESS…
Spirit, soul and body; passion fuels our purpose.
What is passion?
Passion isn’t limited to the expressive, explosive animation and stage presence.
It’s who you are when the curtain closes.
It’s what compels you to move when fear says it’s impossible.
It’s your heart, soul, mind and strength rooted in the foundation that God has not created you with a purpose of perfection but a purpose of passionate progress.
Passion is the language of your heart.
The heart that knows anger & contentment; anxiety & peace, hurt & healing, addiction & grace, insecurity & identity…
A FIT PASSION is the result of teachability, discipline and application.
The formula for effective FITness is FIT: Frequency. Intention. Time. HOW FIT IS YOUR PASSION?
