Passions...

Passion: intense, driving, or overmastering feeling of conviction.

When I was in Hich School my choir teacher was always talking about passion. She said that "No matter what you do, you put everything into it. You be passionate about everything you do!" I have adopted this as my own. I believe that this would be God's will for our life as well.

Col. 3:23 says: And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.

I believe this word heartily can be substituted for passionatelely. We must do everything in our lives as if we are doing it for the Lord, and not for men. You see men in the world, will disapoint us. They will say things that make us want to give up, will make us want to allow ourselves to become apathetic. But God is always faithful to us, he will never fail us. I don't know about you, but that makes me feel passionate about doing things for the Lord!

This is one of the reasons why I decided to name my blog "My Life, My Passions, My God..." My idea with my blog is that it will be about things that go on in my life, it will be about my passions in life, and of course most imptortantly my God. My hope and prayer is that my blog would be a blessing to you all!

I agree wholeheartedly! In fact, Colossians 3:23 is one of my most favorite verses and I take it very seriously.
