Do you have a passion for life?
As I was reading one of my daily devotional plans, this question made me to reflect on my own life critically. It made me realise that sometimes we do things as a way of fulfilling an already established system. We are born, we go to school then college were we graduate and are absorbed in a boring job where we spend the rest of our lives complaining about how our job sucks and eventually live in misery or die.
Don’t just make a living. Make a life. Don’t just earn a paycheck. Go after the passions God has put in your heart. Halfway is no way to live; you’ve got to go all in.
Live a life with no regrets, a life that every day feels like it is your first and last day on earth. Many people are governed by the existing systems that have hindered living life as we should. Some people have been guided by blinkers that have narrowed the way our lives should be heading at the expense of going after our passions in life.
When was the last time you got outside your comfort physically, spiritually, or relationally? You tell me the last time you were uncomfortable, and I’ll tell you the last time you grew! Growth only happens when we put ourselves in uncomfortable situations.
Surely, I can not be the only one who at times gets too comfortable even in the most uncomfortable situations right? Getting comfortable in a situation makes you think that a compromising situation is okay as long as you can manage it. People tend to procrastinate on their heart desires all in the name of time not being right.
Like in the turmoil of what is happening at the present moment in our teapot nation. Many have grown accustomed to the saying ma1 or pakaipa (things are hard), but what are you doing to change your current situation. Growth only happens when we put ourselves in uncomfortable situations.
What can you do today that will make you feel uncomfortable—and fully alive?
A desire fueled by passion will bring about the greatest results in life.
