Dave Brown, a friend, church member, and zealot for Answers in Genesis andI had a meal the other day and we talked about the paucity of time so many use as a reason for anemic efforts to pursue their dream, to follow their star.
As we delved around on the subject I realized I was making a statement sort of off the cuff which went something like this: Passion trumps not enough time.
I have thought about the brief statement for a few days and the more I think the more firmly I insist on the veracity of the statement. The fact of the matter is simple, remove passion from any aspect of life and all you have is blah. Passion is the WOW of life. Passion describes, fervor, zeal, enthusiasm, and other words associated with the heart being set afire for a person, idea, or a plan of action such as the Passion of Christ to accomplish the Father’s will. His passion trumped all the actions of Satan to deter Him from living out the reason He came to Earth to fulfill.
Passion will find the time! Passion will find the way! Passion will release the energy! Passion will…
A controlling verse on the subject is John 4:34, Jesus saith unto them, “My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.” The word meat is metaphorically/contextually, passion. Passion starts and finishes.
