I saw jets of light shining from cities and villages, and from the high places and the low places of the earth. God's word was obeyed, and as a result there were memorials for Him in every city and village. His truth was proclaimed throughout the world. --Testimonies, vol. 9, pp. 28, 29. {ChS 112.2}

Picking Your Passion

This is the truth, and it is much-stated, simple, and profound: if you follow God's calling for you, you WILL live with passion and joy.

Today's question: Are you working at something that is pleasurable, rewarding, pretty natural to your skills and talents, and 'fires your engines'? If yes, then you are probably 'following God's calling'. This is what God has designed you for.

If, on the other hand, you are bored or hate what you are doing; if the work feels mundane, humiliating, and/or meaningless, this is likely NOT your purpose in life. Believe me, God does not intend for you to live a miserable and unfulfilled life. When you discover your destiny, you WILL THRIVE!

Thinking Work: Get out your pen and paper. Think about what 'drives you', what you feel passionate about. Name Your Passion. Describe it and tell about what you have done with it so far. List THREE STEPS you can take to make your passion the centre of your BIG DREAM...

For you have created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. ~Psalm 139: 13-14
