Your husband? Hopefully.
Your kids? Yes.
What about the stuff you do in your daily life? Can you honestly say you’re following your passions?
This is a quote from Debbie Macomber’s book Knit Together. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it. It’s about Debbie’s journey to becoming a NY Times best-selling author. The thing I loved the most was seeing Debbie’s heart for God.
“Passion shouldn’t always be equated with fun. But if what you’re doing doesn’t spur you to experience joy or a sense of accomplishment, or provoke something inside you that makes you want to keep going, it’s time to take a step back and reexamine what you’re doing and whether the purpose you’re pursuing is really the purpose God has in mind.”
If you take a step back and examine your pursuits, what do you find?
Think about the things you do day-to-day. Are there things you’re doing because you didn’t want to say no? Are there things you could pass off to someone else in order to pursue your passion?
I can’t tell you I LOVE 100% of my moments writing. Or LOVE 100% the business part of writing. But I’m passionate about spreading God’s Word through words. I love it! How about you?
