The word Passion is closely related to the word Purpose and Vice -Versa, However, to do for a living what we are passionate about does not necessarily come easy. To some, it might, but to the vast majority, it certainly isn’t the case.
One could say I have tried to pursue this dream/vision of mine for so long but it hasn’t worked out, and now I give up.
What I would say to that is, if the passion is still there, then never give up. Only if something else that you are more passionate about has to mind, or something closely related to what you were previously pursuing then never give up.
As the Lord put it – re-launch into the deep. In Luke 5.4 ( KJV) Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless, at thy word, I will let down the net.
The Living Bible vision puts it this way, “Now go out where it is deeper and let down your nets and you will catch a lot of fish!”
“Sir,” Simon replied, “we worked hard all last night and didn’t catch a thing. But if you say so, we’ll try again.”
Before Jesus said, let down your net for a catch, He spoke to them first, what this means is, Jesus had released Faith and Power into the atmosphere. When Jesus speaks Miracles happen.
The good thing is that Jesus is the same, Yesterday, Today and Forever. The POWER IS THE SAME. Amen.
I don’t want to get to spiritual about it or religious, but if the passion is still there, we have to try again, and re – launch our efforts. If you are the type of person that believes you are here for a reason, then that reason will be about something you love to do, it excites you, it’s no longer work.
Life is not about working for a living, it might be initially, but ultimately life is about doing what we love, and the service from what we love blesses other people, and we get rewarded for it.
The recent setbacks could be that maybe certain things needed to be learned about your passion or more importantly necessary spiritual knowledge needed to be acquired, as this is the backbone of all our desires- the spiritual side of things.
Things must have happened in the spirit before it occurs in the natural. Sometimes it might have happened in the spirit, and someone else might come and steal the blessing before it comes to you.
Therefore one needs Grace, to see the manifestation, this grace comes by walking close with the Lord, so He can warn you who and what you should be careful about and give you instructions.
There is more to life than what meets the eyes, but we live, and we learn and get wiser every day.
So friend, rekindle the flame, ignite the fire and pursue your passion/ purpose.
May God Bless, keep you and shine His face upon you.
Until next time. Keep Believing, Keep Hoping & Keep Loving.
