The Pursuit of Passion

Morning traffic makes me question where I am in life. Why am I heading into the same direction, same city, at the same time with ALL these people?! How is that we have to be at work at the same time? What makes matter worse is that we LEAVE work at the same exact time, which means even more traffic after a long day. I sit in traffic every morning and every evening to go to a job that I don’t love. I always thought that this was the price you pay when you enter adulthood, you just get a job and hold on to it for as long as possible. Truthfully, if I were pursuing my passion, it is likely that I would not be driving in the same the direction as everyone else. Our passions are unique to us, it’s an opportunity to showcase our gifts and live a better life.

In spite of morning traffic and all its awfulness, it helped me realize that what made traffic extremely dreadful was the fact that I was heading away from my passion and not toward it. I believe that most of us are not pursuing our passions because we become trapped by fear or we don’t know where to start. In light of football season, lets discuss the idea of tackling your purpose. Tackling requires sight, strategy and focus. You must first set your sight on the target. God is amazing at showing us signs of how we can tackle our purpose to make an IMPACT. He can give you the vision and help you execute. We have all been given an authority to tackle our purpose. As we are close to finishing out the year 2018, begin to reflect on your commute where God is leading you. Don’t allow fear to keep you stagnant!
