My friend Karen Ball is starting a new series on her blog about passion killers. Yikes, leave it to that woman to have nice light topics. But I’d like you to read her post, then come back here and let’s talk about it.
I think it’s a great topic. For me passion killing can come in many forms. Fatigue, definitely. But that also is more a symptom I think. Sometimes my fatigue is just doing what God calls me to. But I think often it’s because I take on additional things that may not actually be His best for me. the crazy thing is the more I try to pare down to what I know He’s speaking to me, the more tired I seem to get. Weird, huh.
Another is staying too long in one area. If the anointing has moved on, then I need to, as well.
And don’t get me started on knowing I could do it well, so that means I should. Right? LOL.
But in my life, there’s a large reality that to write and do other things I’m passionate about, it has to be at night after the wee ones are in bed. That can kill the passion because I’m just plain tired. And getting the brain cells and passion revved up can be hard.
But I have to do it. Because God has placed that passion in me. 🙂 So what about you. How do your dreams and passion intersect. Let’s get a dialogue going. I’ll pull winners for copies of one of my Dreams books.
