Battle of Passion and Purpose…

Passion and purpose… Two things I’ve, at times, desperately searched to find… To make sense of… To discover within my own life…

And I’ve come to a place in my heart… A place where I am completely confident that I have discovered both… But, well… With this discovery I question, “Now what? Now what do I do with them?”…

I’ve found my passion to be the pursuit of Life and God… I say the pursuit of both because I believe they are both very interchangeable… That Life and God are very similar in their teachings and wisdom… And that they work together for the good of the earth, the tangible and mankind…

And I love my passion… I constantly get lost in thought and obsession over it… Trying to voyage forward in discovery of more… How to gain more and how to then give more…

And I say give more… Because my purpose is Cultivate Life… To put together a place for people of all walks of life to discover Life, God and health… To encourage and inspire others to find truth within the goodness of Life and God…

And I constantly have to remind myself that my purpose and passion are both God-given… That they can and will work together for good, the more I choose to work with them…

And… Like I said, sometimes it’s a challenge for me to embrace my purpose… To actually place myself out there into unknown territory and move with where my passion is leading me…

Because sometimes my passion leads me to unfamiliar places in life… Places that encourage me to actually use my purpose…

And I don’t know if anyone feels this way in their heart today… Like they are constantly struggling to find a balance between passion and purpose… But I believe that passion needs purpose… That passion is fuel for the fire that is purpose… That we need both to be successful in our destiny in Life… And that we need to embrace both whole-heartily to feel complete and whole… To actually flourish from the inside out…

And, so… I hope that anyone reading this feels encouraged to know that you aren’t alone… Even if you’re still searching for your passion and purpose, please know that they are both out there… That they are both waiting to be discovered… That we all have them… And, quite possibly, they are found in the things we love the most… The things that purely drive us every single day… The things that are pure in our hearts… That we simply can’t ever stop talking about or get enough of…
