what are your passionate about ?

What are you passionate about?  That is not always an easy question to answer, yet as we get live our passions are easy to see by others.  Go ask someone: what am I passionate about?
 
Answer a couple of big questions that may help you put a finger on what you are passionate about:
 
1)  What do you love doing? Something you will do and leave others, people and stuff, behind to do.
 
2)  What pulls at your heart?  Stuff that you see around you that might be injustice or hurting others or something.
 
For me, the past few months have really defined what I am passionate about.  As that definition, as I put feet to what God puts in front of me there seems to always be success when I admit and live like life is all about God and nothing else.  Passion defines what we do.  It can be passion for the wrong things or for the right things.  Lets define my passion:
 
Matthew 22:37 (nlt) --- Jesus replied, "'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.'
Loving God is much more than going to church or giving money.  It is having a personal, real relationship that is active.  It is time with God and more.
 
1 Peter 1:22 (nlt) --- You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart.
 
Loving people is a natural outcome of loving God.  Much of passion has to do with seeing people come closer to God.
 
What are you passionate about?  Live in that passion.  Thrive with that passion.  Let God fill you and then let that passion flow to others who need to see God lived out.
