Pursue What You Love

We want to live safe. We avoid risk, but to live from a place of passion and desire we have to risk.  We have to move toward something.  It is love and desire that moves us. What we push away from, what we dislike, sometimes even hate, only moves or motivates us for a brief period of time. What we love is like gravity, constantly pulling us. It is our response to this constant pull, that changes us.

There are two approaches to how we live out passion and desire:

  • Decide to pursue what you love and become what that pursuit makes of you.
    • “The place where your treasure is, is the place you will most want to be, and end up being” – Matthew 6:21
    • “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart” – Psalms 37:4
  • Determine what you wish to become, and pursue what will get you there, to what you love.

Both of these have to lead you to something larger than yourself.  If your passion and desire is only about you or your comfort than it is to small.  You have to find something that requires risk and community.  Take some time, think it through, and pursue what you love. Anticipate what it will do to you, as it shapes and fashions you, and plan accordingly. Live the life you want, live the life you plan.
