Friday Funday: Passion

What lights your fire?

Last week's Friday Funday post was about the importance of being aware of your core values.  Did you  do the values exercise?  What did you find?

Today, I wanted to us to talk about PASSION!  Pure, fiery, engaging, uniquely-yours passion.  

I love this quotation by Harold Whitman:

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive.  Then go do that because the world needs people who have come alive."

What makes you come alive?

A friend of mine recently brought up the movie Chariots of Fire, in which the protagonist (a runner) says, "When I run, I feel God's pleasure." 

Fill in the blank:  "When I ________, I feel God's pleasure."

Three more tips for honing in on your passion:

ONE: Ask someone who knows you intimately to define what you are passionate able.

TWO: Ask your parents, "When I was young, and you could not find me, what did you assume I was doing?"

THREE: What were the moments in your life when you felt genuinely excited and alive?

FOUR: Pray, read the Word of God, and ask Him to light your fire with a unique passion!

What are your passions?  What lights your fire?
